Review from Wayne Toba
ZERO STARS!! I'd give it a negative number if I could. It is IMPOSSIBLE for any intelligent person to remove an old issue download if you are running short of device memory. IF there is a way to remove extra issues from the app, it is so cryptic, esoteric and concealed that only a very clever and skilled reverse software engineer can discover it. I have searched the net from over 3 hours and only found archiving instructions for the much older app. EDIT 7/24/2015 I have FINALLY found a way to delete old issues. There is a very tiny, near-invisible button on the issues page located just below and left of the current issue icon. I needed a magnifying glass to see the faint one-pixel wide outline of the button; the color contrast against the background made it very hard to locate on a tablet. If you tap the button, it takes you to a page that displays all the issues on the device. Tap each issue you want to remove to select it (you can select more than one) then tap the trashcan icon on the upper right of the page then confirm. The issues page should show the deleted issues with a download button under them instead of read now.
The content is fine when it actually loads. Brand new phone, great data plan, and yet it takes like 5 minutes to load the magazine. It'd be nicer if I could just download the articles directly to my phone instead of having to view them in a very slow app.
Will not allow me to access my account. Worthless unless I an access the magazines. Back to Zinio it works.
Unsubscribed I haven't had issues with the app like most users have, however the content quality seems to have been slacking after having been a reader for the past 3 years. Most if the magazine is IOT focused, with very few articles helpful to PC users. The size and numbers of articles has decreased imensly, (I downloaded an older magazine version for comparison) and it's nearly a fourth of the size of older magazines with articles significantly smaller, with less relevant information. I'd recommend maximum pc instead
Updated to the new app and it will not let me access my account, states that the website is not availble. Too many articles about gaming & other items of little interest to me after subscribing for over 10 years.
To those having problems with the new app, I have discovered that the old one doesn't update and can't open the September issue. I have a Galaxy Tab A. Delete the app, and go to the Play Store to re-install. You will get the new app which works as they said it would. For a company dealing with IT matters, they stink at it. I have had trouble with the app since day one of the digital only publication and far too many emails to customer service. I don't care about gaming, so I share the feelings of others that the publication has less interesting, but it still has value to me.
Does not access web site successfully so I am now unable to log in. The older version at least worked.
We've moved to an entirely new platform that adds a responsive view on iOS and Android. The new platform improves reading on your mobile device, adds landscape viewing on the iPad, enables adjustable type size, allows pinch and zoom, and allows search for a specific topic through your back issue library. PLEASE NOTE: With the app update, your back issue will need to be downloaded and will display in the new format. Need help? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 800-234-3498.
