Choppy scrolling, also forgets open issue Even when using high end phones (like flagship 2015 devices with fast snapdragon chips and lots of RAM) scrolling in articles is choppy and distracting. Also when the app is backgrounded for a period of time, reopening it returns you to the issue list, instead of the last open issue/page.
Updated review as previously reported access problem was due to NS not activating my subscription correctly. Now resolved. The app is fine... It is pretty basic so plenty of room for improvement as others have suggested, but I am happy to read issues on my phone as I would have done the paper magazine.
Poor Confusing and unfair subscription terms do not allow app users to browse website. Website subscription includes ipad but not android. App itself is like a Web view done lazily. No real thought given to tablets. Surely you can do better ....
A good magazine, a poor app. Content as always is enlightening and generally well written, however the app looks dated and is poorly laid out in comparison to other Paid Content apps. I generally prefer to wait for my Print copy to come through the post, which says something, as almost all of my other Paid Content is happily consumed on tablet.
Keeps crashing. Very brittle I was hoping that this would be better than trying to get the webpage on mobile. Needs more work! I'll use it when it's there!!!
Found it impossible to get a login for my subscription despite a million different attempts. Really enjoy the content but that was a waste of time!
