Why would this app need access to my contacts? After first time of having it open, i closed the app and re-opened it. All i get now is a black screen. Uninstalled it from my Samsung S6. I wanted to use this to read articles while on a long airline flight... dissappointed with this.
This app has what I want to read but they must be downloaded and the app wants access to your contacts to determine who you are rather than have you sign in. Personally, I wish they would make some changes regarding these issues but having access to the magazine including back issues is really cool. Overall, I like it I just wish they would add more functionality and content without intrusive permissions.
Logging in is a real pain as the login screen is all screwed up. It says it is downloading the file but every few pages it tries to connect and appears to be downloading. This can go on for a couple of minutes every two or three pages. It downloads the files into the downloads folder and doesn't cleanup the files after it finishes. After a few magazines your tablet elk stop working as the memory is full. You can spend half an hour and delete the files manually. There is no bookmark feature. If you put your tablet down to do something else, it goes back to the main page and you have to start all over. This is a perfect example of how not to write an app.
I'm sorry to have to say this but this app is worthless. It's rediculisly slow and the formatting for the log in screen is so off I can't sign in using my ARRL credentials. Uninstalling.
The new qst app doesn't need permission to use my contacts or to make and manage my phone calls. Uninstalled. Does not need any permission. Would not open after 5 minutes.
Stick with the hard copy print edition. Individual issues must be downloaded, and it is a slow process. It's not like an epub file or reading Wikipedia: Once downloaded, what you have is the same three-column layout as the printed magazine. Reading an article requires constant zooming and scanning around the page. Uninstslled the app.
