This is an acceptable, long awaited, first release. I like the print edition layout, bookmarking, news feeds and search option. I also like the option to download and read the latest edition before receiving the printed copy. However, more features are needed, or need improvement. The zoom feature in the print edition view is far too limited. And there is no way to adjust the font size in the text view. In both cases the maximum viewing size is very small. Once an issue is downloaded to your device there is no way to remove it gracefully when you’re done reading it. The only way to remove issues is to clear the application cache and then you have to setup your login again.
New print/digital subscriber. All ok except deeply disappointed one can not use fingers to enlarge print on my Galaxy tablet. This is a REAL downer for seniors, as the print starts out small anyway. And what about graphs and pics for old eye? Whew.
After 4 days of my payment I can't access to anything! Really terrible support! I made a $25 purchase for a digital subscription, but the app doesn't recognize me and my account at all!!! I'm frustrated!
Convenient way to access your existing Science News subscription. Biggest con is that only about half of the content can be offloaded to the SD card ... So it can take up a lot of space. Also the most recent update (v32.0) seems to be broken (indicates my subscription does not allow me to download or read the current magazine).
The app is faithful to the page layout of the print magazine but the text mode has no control over the tiny font size. Other magazines do a better job of publishing their digital edition.
I paid $29.99 for nothing, twice! First, 2 days ago I subscribed but had no access to the publication. I tried multiple times that day & the next & sent email to the listed contact, member@societyforscience No answer. Yesterday, I tried to sign in to the publisher's web site to ger access. My email was not recognized. Today I called the publisher & found it has no record of me, but would not from a third party merchant. Google play is not listed as an authorized subscription agent. Google Help walked me through troubleshooting steps including a refund & reorder, but no joy. I was OK with a second cancellation & refund, but think this whole misdirection of the user & lack of transparency stinks & verges on fraud.
