Initially this app looked great and signed up for 14 day free trial. Found loads of magazines for the family and downloaded some of them.....then 2 days into the trial I was asked to upgrade to full membership and wasn't able to read any of the mags that had already been downloaded or look at any others.
The Android app is worthless. I can read magazines fine on my Ipad mini but on my Sony Tablet Z only the cover shows up.
This is a fantastic app. I can download loads of my favourite mags and it doesn't cost me a fortune. Also my craft room doesn't get clogged up with magazines.
Very good for magazines etc. If you buy 3 or 4 every month you can save with this app. Loads of choice including a few comics for kids. Just make sure you don't download one in a foreign language!
Vast amount of mags both mainstream and niche plus back copies available so worth the monthly fee .
Very good for reading but when you do crosswords the page get slow the more letters you add. So one less star.
- Keep downloaded magazines at logout.
Why that is good: In previous versions downloaded magazines were erased when user logged out. Now downloaded magazines are more persistent.
- Profile change can be made offline.
Why that is good: Good when travelling offline. Switching profiles doesn't require a network connection anymore.
- More swag.
Why that is good: you can never get enough swag. Definitely more swag.
- Bugs squashed, fixes fixed and tweaks tweaked.
