I'm loving the new update. I really like the read out function and the layout. The dev team have done a excellent job. Only thing is though I lost about 6 of my magazines with the update, it's asking me to pay again for them when I had the full collection before.

I have subscribed to Focus from the very first issue in the early 1990s. I have paid for a digital subscription over the past 6 years BUT via my Kindle. This app is of no use to me whatsoever. Surely if I buy a digital copy it should recognise the fact I have paid to read it.

I absolutely love the content of the Focus Magazine. However, I need to uninstall and reinstall the app every single time I want to download a magazine. Otherwise the magazine downloads to 100% and the loader continues spinning indefinitely. Please fix this!
