Wi-fi download only? Why? By all means warn me about using my mobile data, but don't just disallow it for no reason. You're not my Mum, newscientist!
Science mag or political shill? Downloaded app, all ready to subscribe and then saw the anythingbutscientific article regarding Donald Trump's TWEETS for crying out loud! We get forcefed enough via mainstream media - I dared to hope for more from a SCIENCE rag - Alas, alack, it is not to be.
Poor layout New Scientist provides excellent articles but the app is terrible. The magazine is hard to navigate, the carousel cannot be zoomed so it is hard to use on a phone (ok on tablet) and the text size can't be zoomed which makes reading hard on any device. Also my account could not be activated via an android phone; activation required an email, New Scientist responded quickly to let me know it would be sorted in 24 hrs (and it did take this long)
Sub par app Too many problems with the app the justify the steep electronic subscription price. I also have The Economist app, that demonstrates how this should be done. Navigation that works and options to automatically delete and download old/new issues. I will cancel subscription given lack of apparent will from NS to get their app working well.
Much much much improved 3 requested changes. One, Label shareable versus subscriber only articles so I'm not baiting friends and family. Two, change the link color. Red is difficult to see in night mode. Three, enable an option to immediately return to what you were reading when opening the app. Cheers.
Great Nothing wrong with it! Not sure if other reviews are for previous versions or what but this app has no bugs at all as far as I have seen. Great issues and articles. Very inspiring and interesting
