very hard to read on a nexus 7, no zoom allowed I didn't listen to the other people. I thought everyone was talking about some separate SI app. Wrong. I'm using the standard google newsstand app. They have it fixed so you are not allowed to zoom any pages but the ads. Trouble is print is so small on a nexus 7 I need to zoom to be able to read the text. Okay, I'd like to be able to zoom on the women too, after all this is the swimsuit issue. Think you can get around it by viewing online on a pc in chrome? Buzzzzz. Thanks for playing. It is also restricted to a device. No PC for you. It's SI, not Google because the other magazines I read on here work great.
Bush league Where do I start? Accessing this is labyrinthine. Moving through content is horrible. Have to reactivate periodically. Can't see back issues I had via the S.I. app. ... Man, being in I.T. I just look at this and wonder, who put these asinine requirements together and what idiot users ok'ed this in test? C'mon S.I. you can do so much better....
Getting better! Nope, got worse! The old SI app had the latest issue available at midnight Thursday, using Play magazines, the latest issue still isn't available. It would be nice if SI could make the latest issue available by Thursday morning like the old app. ADD: And the Feb 11 issue still isn't available on Friday, Feb. 8. I don't know whether it's SI or Google's fault but I wish someone would do something about issues showing up much later then they did with the old SI app. Please take care of this. EDIT: OK, the Feb. 18 issue was able to be downloaded on Thursday morning, much better, thank you, so I'm increasing the rating to 3 stars but you still can't zoom in and can't access SI writers' Twitter feeds like the old SI app. Get those fixed and it's 5 stars. EDIT: March 18. 1 star, pages come in messed up, some are normal, some are zoomed in and you can't read the entire page. Text is much smaller. My eyes aren't perfect but this is ridiculous. Please, someone at Google or SI fix this!
Won't verify Subscription I am a print subscriber. I bought my tablet specifically that I could read my SI when I had a break without hauling the magazine with me. When i follow the app and enter my subscription number it brings up a cost of 0.00 a balance of X on my google play but won't accept my subscription (which is good until next april). The only other option is to buy Google credit. Which I won't be doing because I have a 0.00 cost and a balance left. What kind of scam is this? Unless I am doing something wrong, I am p'd off about this and may cancel my SI subscription entirely. Get it right!
Cancelling print subscription SI cancelled the old app and now I can't access the issues between its cancellation and my download date of this new one. Complete rip-off and scam to force subscribers to buy back issues. I'll be cancelling my subscription, both digital and in print. I will never subscribe to SI again. I have lost respect for the company, something it doesn't have for its subscribers. ESPN The Magazine here I come.
Longstanding Publication I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and it's having a bit of a problem downloading, that said I've already purchased the issue. My rating is based on the longstanding reputation of SI and this issue with Derek Jeter not on the app. If it continues to have hiccups it'll be the last edition I purchase from them.
