It's maddening that I can't search for text in the issues I have downloaded. I would expect as a minimum that I could enter a term and the app would search all downloads for it. Actually I don't think it's unreasonable to expect it to search all issues within a time frame, but I'd store for downloaded ones in the interim. Pretty clunky app in general
Using it on a Chrome book. Up to the last two issues, used to work well. Now the download fails everytime I try and access a new issue. Shame. I like New Scientist, but the app isn't great.
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.
I do not recommend this app. They update it frequently and then you lose all the issues that you downloaded. They promise that all the issues that you downloaded will stay on your tablet even after your subsciption expires but then they "update" it and it is all gone. Their customer service department is useless. It is quite clear that the ones answering your queries are robots and not human beings and they don't offer any solutions.
Buy a subscription online. Includes access on the web, includes printed issue. Does NOT include access in the app. Ridiculous. That is petty and frankly unbelievable.
Subscriptions through the new Scientist web site are not instant. They are done using direct debit and take a couple of days to process. This method is new scientists recommendation as it gives you access to web content as well as app content. If you just want to use the app to read the content you are better subscribing through the play store and I believe that this week be instantaneous. Just to note this was not made obvious when I subscribed so I also had a lengthy interaction with new scientist support. The response times are a little slow. It would be better if this was made clear before subscribing as well as in further correspondence as my initial experience was not great.
