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.
Bizarrely narrow app functionality Basically a PDF reader for the magazine - would be improved by just integrating web app and media feed functionality. Then again the permissions on the web app are so broken, I can imagine that's easier said than done. It hasn't asked me to log in again between reading two consecutive articles, so, it's winning.
Share button has a bug Please check the share button. It prints the title and then %url on the end. Also you can not zoom or view the images in landscape. Sometimes the front cover is difficult to read the small print. To solve this a single scrollable page with all issues would be good with a small margin either side, instead of the two column default layout.
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.
Crash Crash Frequently so I have uninstalled it.
Buggy The articles are pretty great, but the app has lots of bugs and is laborious to use. When I share an article, it scrolls all the way back to the top, for example. It also crashes sometimes when I have an article open, go home or to another app, and then attempt to reopen the New Scientist app. [EDIT] After several upgrades, the app is much better.
