Crashes when opening articles This app used to be solid as a rock, but recently it has started crashing when opening some articles. Sometimes when crashing it also corrupts the downloaded article list, making it inaccessible.
Non-functional on some devices The app offers the potential to select and view ACMs broad range of publications. However, upon selecting a publication to view, the app crashes. I'm using an ASUS TF701t tablet. Note: a later version does work on my LG G3 phone. I would prefer viewing on a tablet with a larger screen size. Update: downloaded 08 Mar 16 update...same crash issue
Disappointed! Oct 2015. Samsung Galaxy Tab S with Android 5.0.2. Loads ok but crashes each time I select a publication. Not impressed since I have a life membership in ACM. Feb 2016 still no change.
Crashes almost every time I open a journal I have the app installed on two devices, a Nexus 4 running Lollipop and a Samsung Galaxy Tab S with 4.4.2. When I try to open a journal on either device, the app usually crashes. If it does not crash, or reports "No content available."
Latest version crashes on open Latest version crashes on open, nexus 6, marshmallow. Opened fine before update
Worth less than what you pay for it, not unlike the Digital Library itself. The binder function appears to be completely broken. Once articles are put in a binder through the app, that action does not synchronize with binders on the traditionally-accessible website. Or if they do, God only knows how long it takes-- it should be near instantaneous with a browser refresh. If there is some action by which one can force a synchronization, it is exquisitely well hidden in the minimalist lack-of-interface. There is no ability to add more than one object at a time to binders-- a feature which is, infuriatingly, absent in the traditional version as well. This makes this app, like the base website, basically useful for managing large literature searches or comprehensive reviews. One might easily lose a day or more in repetitive points and clicks to move everything into the binders after a search. This is just embarrassing for the ACM. And there is no facility to export the binder objects into a more convenient format, such as BibTex. This would not be devastating if the binders would ever synchronize to the main account, but they show no evidence of ever doing so.
