It was working fine until a few days ago. None of my recently check-out magazines are downloaded. Keeps saying that it does not have the magazine data. Went back to zinio app and that one worked with my old magazines and recent ones. Update: the app works better after the update. Thanks to the devs
UPDATED REVIEW: This is the first time I have ever received a response to a review from a development team and boy did they deliver! I changed my rating from a 1 star to a 5 five star due to the improvement with a single function. I am very pleased with the update and the application now exceeds my expectations and works better than the app I favored in my original review below. Good work developers and thank you! Original review: Used zinio for magazines and loved it. This app doesn't appear to let me easily access all the magazines I have checked out except in a scrolling row. Makes it difficult to find the item I want to read. Zinc gave me a full screen view that I could categorize and see almost my entire library. First impression is very negative.
I use it daily on my commute. It is horrible. 1. Auto download most time doesn't work; 2. If offline, cover page become blank; 3. Super slow to move from one page to another; 4. One line display of my magazines force me to swipe right all the time. Wish they can at least make it fully works in offline mode.
My only complaint is that it gets confused sometimes and restarts the book when I close the app. But other times it will save my spot for days even with phone being restarted and everything. Other than that weird quirk it works great!
*****Update.... still rubbish! Still can't get into anything..... error message.. updated, still nothing! ***** Worked fine, but no longer, can't get into anything! Keep getting error message. Very frustrating, I can't get to read my library books! Please correct.
This is a brilliant App. Unfortunately stopped working briefly after an unsuccessful update. Most recent update has resolved the problem. Thank you for prompt response when App stopped working.
