The new interface is better, but still not there. The update completely reinstalled the app and with it comes my four years worth of magazines. Archiving all but the current issues is still a long process (200+ magazines), but it's better than it used to be. I archived them on my tablet, now I have to go through the whole process again with my phone. Wouldn't it be great if the archive status was saved in my account? Then I wouldn't dread having to reinstall this app.
The previous version of Zinio had three functions that I liked 1. Great selection of magazines 2. The ability to jump straight to the library screen when opening the app. 3. The ability to save the sizeable data to an sd card due to the limited space on my Galaxy Tab A. The latest version has failed miserably at what I require from it. 1. The great selection of magazines is still available. 2. I can no longer just jump straight to the library but have to view the home page which is just annoying. 3. I can no longer rely on my stored downloads on long haul flights as i can no longer download them to my sd card. WHAT WERE THE DEVELOPERS THINKING?!?!?! They took a great app and basically destroyed it. I am struggling to find a reason to maintain my subscriptions!!! Since iI cant have them all on my tablet all the time!!!
Who decided that the latest upgrade was fit for purpose? This is the most error riddled, badly designed app that I have used. Give me access to the previous version because at least it worked. The attempted clean up and recovery of downloaded magazines after the upgrade was mammoth time waster and not successful as the app continually gave errors.
I use a Galaxy Tab A and recently downloaded the new version of the app which is similar to the RB Digital format. The format is nice, but now does not work. Swiping left - right changes the article. But up - down does not have the functionality to read beyond the first page of text. I am no longer able to read the entire article in text format. Please help fix this bug in the text functionality. Thank you.
Badly designed app. Still doesn't use low profile mode which removes the Android nav bar when not needed. Updated app is functionally worse than previous iterations. It looks nicer but there's no way to select multiple issues to archive or delete. Text view doesn't work. You can only read page one of each article. Zinio support are also useless but they didn't design this appalling app. When my subscriptions expire, I will be looking for an alternative.
Downloaded update and now cannot download magazines to my Samsung Tab 3. Each time get error message - "error occurred - try again". Please fix! Update - thank you for your prompt response support ref #657084. Downloading works brilliantly now. 😁
