This is the best of the many "popularized science" magazines. It comes from the UK but the contributions come from throughout the world. The level of background might be classed as "advanced beginner without need for a math background". Anyone from high school on up will be able to understand and enjoy their presentations. I'm a major fan. (You need to subscribe to the digital version. It's not expensive.) If I were to offer a suggestion, it is PLEASE PROVIDE A SEARCH FUNCTION! Thanks!

You broke everything with this "update". Even dark mode doesn't work anymore (black text on black background). Where's the downloaded area? Why can't it remember where I left off reading anymore? Whoever tested this rancid pile of code should be sacked. Clearly the engineer didn't read the review. Dark mode doesn't work, not because you can't turn it on, but because you can't read *black text on a black background*. And tapping "magazines" shows all of them, not just the ones you downloaded.

The dark mode feature is available and can be switched on under your settings. Any downloaded issues are shown via a tick under the Magazine tab. Finally, our developers are working on the app remembering where you left of. Kind regards, Customer Care

Extremely buggy on Pixel 2 - e.g., tapping the search icon results in a page saying "search_landing_title search_landing_support" with a search field autofilled by "search_input_placeholder". Any optimistic attempt to use this to actually search results in a new page saying "search_error_title search_error_support". Also seconding the broken menu issues mentioned by others. And to the person saying "mine works so it's your fault": Nope :|
