I've had a bit more time to use this app, and really the lack of a dark mode is its biggest flaw. The other much smaller issue I have with it is the inability to read through a magazine end to end. When you finish an article there's no smooth transition into the next one. You have to backup and navigate to the next story. They do a good job with the set up of sequential thumbnails though. That makes it handy for later reference.

The digital version is very very bad, terrible. It promts you to pay a new issue even if you are a subscriber. You logoff and login again and still does not work. The graphs are imposible to view. The letters are either too small or too large. It's been like this for years. It seems they don't care. They don't fix it. What a shame. A diservice to the editors because the content it top, first class.

Funny: Google asks if the app has multi-device sync. It doesn't even have SINGLE-device sync. It doesn't remember where you left off when you return. Ok - it may remember what article you were reading - but not a clue about where you were in the article. To make it worse, the app is too sensitive to accidental sideways motions while scrolling - so it switches to another article - and returning to the one you were reading takes you where? Always to the top. Love the magazine, but already cancelled my automatic renewal.
