Quirky app, great content The Safari subscription model gives me access to amazingly useful and current content. The Safari app works, but has lots of usability bugs. For example, I have to increase the font size in order to read on my Nexus 7, but this causes render problems such as clipping the left margin. Safari sometimes resets my font choice when turning the page. I'm really happy overall with Safari. The app just needs some love. Or maybe move the longtime original Safari members to the new reader app and close this one?
Love safari, Android app needs work I find safari really useful but the android app is buggy compared to the the IOS counterpart. It has a really frustrating bug when you navigate to a page from the table of contents or a search. The font size is tiny causing you to constantly resize. This the affects the next page making the first time massive. Happens on tablet and phone.
Five stars for the contents, two stars for the app. My rant: books in the offline folder cannot be opened unless Im online (?!), many books default to a very zoomed out view of each page, removing books from my 10 books folder rarely works, I often see duplicate books in my folders, it's very difficult to bring up the menu especially if there is a code snippet. I've been seeing these problems for a long time. Considering that's Safari provides hundreds of books on mobile dev it's ironic that this app is so crummy.
This app really needs some love, as it just doesn't do its job. The controls are really flaky and don't always do what they should. Example: hit the center to display the UI controls, and if there's a picture on the page it shows the picture zoom, going back via button or controls remove the UI controls again. They also disappear too quickly. The content is great, but this app isn't. Please make it work better. Also, you could look into the newsstand format, and follow and Material design guidelines. It would make it really easy to use and intuitive.
I am having a corporate account and for last few days it's not allowing me to login on my iPad and Android application. It's showing error as "invalid session Id". While there is no issue in login in the browser.
Great content, app needs help The Safari subscription itself is awesome. However, there are two major issues with the app that prevent me from wanting to use it. The first is that I have trouble reading because there is too much contrast. Other e-readers provide the ability to make the background light brown or off white, which makes it much easier on my eyes. The second problem is that the first page I read when I reopen a book is formatted as if I'm reading it on a computer monitor.
