Was able to log in effortlessly, and nice that there is access to a multitude of magazines. However, the app leaves alot to be desired, outside of navigating and reading, it does nothing more (except "bookmark). An immediate function that is lacking is the ability to favorite magazine titles, so you dont have to look for them everytime. Stitcher is a good analog. App does its job, but leaves alot lacking, very unfortunate.

Not bad if you don't mind reading with a magnifying glass. I didn't know it was possible for texts in a reading app to not be resizable. The log in page on the app is different than the browser. It doesn't allow logging via library card number. A few glaring issues. The devs should feel lucky to even get 2 starts.

The app works nicely to give you access to updated magazines if you are in the network of an institution that has a subscription but the rendering is poor. Pages are rendered as medium resolution photos instead of digitalized text so when you zoom in things get blurry. There is an option to display only the text of the magazine in high quality but then you miss out on the pictures. There's definitely room for improvement.
