Disappointing and unnecessary update. This app used to be good.

Kalmbach must have hired some ex-Microsoft developers because they took something that looked and worked well (the App) and made it ugly and less useful. Nothing is available off-line so we can now forget about reading the digital magazine while traveling. The new layout is just plain ugly and adds few if any useful new features. All hyperlinked material is gaudily highlighted which is both annoying and distracting. Previously saved editions are now lost and must be re-downloaded, unnecessarily wasting bandwidth. Kalmbach - please consider the impact on your readership before making such drastic changes. Keep your developers in check. One star is generous imho. Yuck!

Used to be great, it’s ruined now

This app used to be perfect. The interface was perfect. The new look of the latest version is sluggish and slow (even on my iPhone x) and I cannot log in to restore my issues or get new ones. I was on the Southwest Chief this week and could not access one thing to read because of this. Please revert back to a functional and better looking and far more useful app with actual offline storage.

One star is WAY too generous, but it’s the lowest rating I was allowed to give. It’s not worth even that. JUST REVERT TO THE OLD APP, ROLL BACK AND TRASH THIS CRAPPY REGRESSION.

New app terrible

Just downloaded the new version of the app. Several magazines I had purchased don’t even show up as available for download and the app continually crashes, obviously no testing was done before it was released. There isn’t even an option to only show purchased/downloaded issues. Last version was far superior to this new piece of junk version.
