this did not work right away. I had to wait two days for this "magazine" to autoupdate, so I could read and interact with it on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. Works alright now. I do not recommend reading any magazine on a phone less than 5 inches, especially with full page pictures. This magazine dl right away on my moto g, but I did not enjoy reading it on that small screen. I think the digital version should be cheaper.
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!
Excellent Issue I don't understand why people are bitching about this issue. I downloaded it on my device (Google Nexus 7) and its working just fine. Sounds like user error. Honestly I don't think cell phones are the best devices to read digital editions of magazines. Putting the issue on the device helps (Select keep on device) - great issue, great app. No complaints.
This app is so bad The functionality is god aweful. Load times are long as hell and it's SUPER glitchy. It would be cool if it was actually formatted for phone screens too. Some pictures take up multiple pages in the actually magazine so it is horrible on the phone; models face, *flip*, load time, models mid drift, *flip*, load time, legs, *flip*, load time, picture of some dude posing for cologne. Soooo many ads too. You'd think it would be way cheaper producing it for the phone so why all the ads?
no zoom, portrait only i was excited to download the app for this issue when i turned down buying the paper copy at the store. the magazine flaunted video features and more perks to the emagazine. so i dowloaded it. first problem i encountered was portrait only mode. forget about viewing two page spreads it is not possible. the three page fold out is cut into three separate pages which on my nexus 7 displays black bars between each page. the next issue is no zoom! how in the world are you not going to include zoom?! ok? instances where images may be clicked on to enlarge them are then cropped to fit the screen. very poor. and finally my last complaint is that tthe videos do not download with the magazine. online streaming i could have found free online. so disappointing. wish i could get a refund and buy the paperback instead.
