Not Bad... Good job, although quite slow on my Xoom 2. The navigation system is great. As with the PDF version on portable devices, it's too graphics-intensive, which I think isn't helping responsiveness. I suggest making the images lower quality/size (we're only viewing it on a 10" screen). Some text is also difficult to read due to being too small, and current page won't stretch when in landscape, so that doesn't help readability. Speed 'er up and more stars!
Since it went digital, I find I don't read it anymore. They should have stayed with paper. I read every issue until it went digital. Cost only became an issue for CASA when our politicians would miss out on another 11% payrise. A lot of valuable safety information will go unread because of an inability to access it. I was first introduced to safety magazines as a 14 year old by a pile of the old Aviation Safety Digest being given to me nearly 30 years ago and the stories and lessons in those are as relevant today as they were then. Who would dare leave a tablet on a coffee table in a flying school so a student could pick it up and read FSA while waiting for their instructor to come back from a sortie? In time, everything will be digital, including money, but some of the important things are adopting the technology far too early.
