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!
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.
grindingly slow and unstable This is a really interesting publication presented in one of the worst magazine apps I have come across. The developer should be embarrassed by this app and the publisher should find a new developer soon... I have this app on two well-specc'd 2014 devices (Samsung Galaxy Tab pro and LG G3) and the app is ponderous, clunky and frequently stops working. Pro tip: if you really want this magazine on your device, sign up for it through Amazon Kindle... a far better way of reading a fantastic publication than through this appalling app.
