App has extreme trouble downloading more than one item at a time, and when there is so thing on my shelf I cannot download anything else.
Could use sharper Images Looks like my local library downgraded when they switched from Zinio. I used to enjoy reading magazines of a much wider variety and in a format that did not cause all the words to be blurry when zoomed. I appreciate the addition of the text view, it does make it possible to read the articles now. Some magazines, like the cross-stitch ones still need much sharper images. Selection and quality, please improve this app!
Poor implementation This app is just a viewer with no other functionality. I cannot subscribe to magazines nor browse a selection of available magazines without first using my browser to connect to my library. It would be more useful if the app talked to my library and exchanged my credentials. Also it does not allow resizing fonts in text view mode which is a pain on an 8 inch tablet.
Doesn't work I went to the site using Opera on my tablet and don't see an option to open in app. Not very intuitive. If you need an example how to make it easier, look at Zinio. I checkout a magazine on the library webpage and then go to the Zinio app and it's available for download.
Needs tutorial Once I got this ap going, it's fine. However, there is no help whatsoever from Flipster on making that happen. With some googling, I found a tutorial. Still can't use some of the functionality that is supposed to be here, but maybe I can find another tutorial later.
unfortunately, you should be using Chrome with this app. the default browser in your tablet probably doesn't understand the command to invoke the download. once you use Chrome to access the Flipster site and touch the "download in app" link, everything works fine. so minus 1 Star for requiring Chrome.
From within the app:
- Find a library that offers Flipster
- Explore popular magazines from your library’s collection
- Download magazines to My Shelf
