Help needed I like the app but...I need help. After downloading the magazine to my Nexus 7 (1), I usually cannot get the Read button to work. A black screen results. Sometimes it has worked, but I cannot tell whether there were any different circumstances. Can the developers or anyone offer any advice? P.S. OK, I just shut down the app (after downloading) and reopened, and now I can read the magazine just fine. Obviously, not a big problem. Is it normal?
Wasted subscription? Just subscribed to the magazine so that I can read it on my nexus 7 - except it doesn't appear to work and I can't read the content. Does the developer not read the feedback as there are lots of similar comments and reviews as I've now discovered.
Horrendous Awfully designed app, unresponsive - someone should introduce the developer to the concept of threads, maybe the async task for Xmas? Great magazine, terrible app
Simply doesn't work Running on a samsung galaxy s5, crashes every time I try to open the most recent magazine within the app. Unusable in its current form. Very disappointing, especially considering there is a prominent full page advert within the Spectator magazine encouraging you to download the app!
I am having the same problems as the majority of readers. Unstable app, constantly crashing, unacceptably slow to respond. Spectator magazine is a brilliant publication, and I expect better than the current app from them. Why have they released this application with their name attached to it, and why, after all the negative comments have they failed to replace it with a superior one? Please take responsibility for this failure and rectify it Spectator!!
Content great, but unusable for the commuter Excellent magazine let down by a poor app. Downloading cannot take place automatically or on the background; app takes a long time to load and often hangs at a black screen when opening an issue and navigation is clunky and unresponsive. Suggest the designers look at The Economist app and do the same. UPDATE: Now even more glitchy and frustrating after recent Android update to Lollipop.
