Review from Elizabeth Sylvia
Easy to use, though it might be nice to be able to search using more specific categories or keywords
Had to update as previous version stopped working. However the ability to switch to text mode appeared to be absent in the update. Had to zoom and pan to read the magazine articles. Emailed for help and Brett from Howe very helpful. Advised to remove app, reboot my Hudl2 and install it again. Works fine now. Can read all mags for free via my local library eg Economist, New Scientist, Astronomy, Classic Cars, Yachting Monthly....
The only issue I have is the limited author selections. Other than that, it's great and best of all...FREE! UPDATE: It's been upgraded automatically and now I can't get my audiobook to play!! Grrr!! *Revised: This ap sucks. It won't play my books for more than a few minutes at a time. Then it either stops or shuts down. 😒
The player works well. Because files can be quite long it would be nice to have some longer jump intervals. I would also like to be able to search my wish list. The bookmark buttons are too close together for those of us with large hands.Hopefully some of these issues will be fixed with a future update.
I use this mostly with my library account, and it's slow, crashes, fails to download about half the magazines I've checked out, and (usually) won't open offline. Pales in comparison to Zinio. Update: three months later - more magazines are working, still fails miserably to work offline. Usability still pales in comparison to Zinio. Get the thing to work offline and I'll be happy.
The library made me download this app and it doesn't seem any better or worse than the previous app. I enjoy reading magazines etc and paying for the privilege via taxes rather than buying items individually. Socialism is alright like that.
App was working fine then, like always, there's an update which stops it from working as it was. I check out a magazine, then when I go to read it it says the data for that magazine is unavailable, please try again later. If the latest magazine isn't available to read, don't display it. For an app that was working fine, you really know how to collect one stars.
