The actual magazine is great (when I can access it). Every month for the past 4 months, I have to submit a trouble ticket to the app creator due to the fact that each month, they reset my subscription and state that I do not have access to that issue. I am paid through August of this year. Each month I have to go through this same routine which is ridiculous. It shouldn't take 4 months to get this issue resolved. Please Mountain Bike Action, have someone else create your digital issues. Perhaps having them accessible through the google play newsstand would be ideal. Then no lackluster app would be needed. (I don't even want to get started on the poor functionality of the app itself)
Could be alot better User interface is lacking. I should be able to hit offline mode and be able to download any issue I want. Why does it take so long to download an issue? And why can't I save articles I like for future references. I should be able to mark some of my articles as favorites in that way. The only thing that this app has going forward is the actual content you might as well go out and buy a magazine
Android Fail Editorially, I love this magazine, but the android tablet version fails on the most basic level...no bookmarking function. Are you kidding me? According to MBA, even their web based version doesnt bookmark, only the ipad version. I just subscribed to the print copy.
Love the magazine but the app is useless! Magazines are slow to load, no offline reading, once magazine has downloaded it often freezes when reading or doesn't load pages, very annoying!
It does not let you read the magazine when you are offline Great magazine, but this app is horrible. It take ages to open the pages and it does not allow you to read the magazine when you are off-line (In an airplane for example).
No offline reading Overall it's OK but I'd appreciate the ability to read offline and why does it take so long to download a magazine? Please can you improve the app some more?
