Used to work I really used to like the previous version of the app but ever since the last update it keeps telling me the app has stopped working. No matter what I try, I still haven't managed to get it working. Please fix this guys, I really miss having digital access to my New Scientist subscription!
Works on Android 5.02 Despite the warning in the description, this app seems to work on Android 5.02. The app itself could use more features, such as automatic download of new issues. (Over Wi-Fi only, of course!) It does its job for offline reading, though.
Very janky Not a particularly smooth experience. Love the content as I always have done, but using the app isn't a great experience.
Now crippled Why have you started to shorten articles especially for this app? I pay more than $300 pa and don't need a crippled app, especially as I use it where I can't get internet. Its not like the download is too large. Why New Scientist after all the app problems we have put up with? You are about to lose a subscriber.
Scientists aren't the best designers Pretty average app. I suspect the bean counters decided this was a better option than using kindle or whatever. I still hate the way it loses authentication randomly. How could anyone mess up the simple process of what a back button is for? And why is the index so weird?
At least it opens... Upgrading my review because at least it opens now, still some bugs though such as I can't always read the title of the article (page won't scroll any further) and sometimes the scrolling breaks entirely.
