  • Can’t access prior issues

    By KW in SC
    I just purchased the app today. I can access the current issue, but no prior issues. The app keeps asking me to login, but won’t allow me to.
  • Love

    I love the magazine and I love the app.
  • Great content. Terrible app.

    By djbky
    For one thing, image caption text often covers article text making it difficult or impossible to read some parts of some articles. Really, this app is just part of the paywall to the web-site. I don’t mind paying for good content, of the calibre provided by SN, but I mind that I am forced to use a second-rate app that amounts to being an out-dated browser with serious formatting problems.
  • It regularly forgets my subscription

    By bugfolder
    About once every two months the app won’t add new issues, instead offering only “preview” or purchase options (though it remembers already-downloaded issues). A few emails with customer service eventually fixes the problem...and then a few to several weeks later, it happens again.
  • “Show Text”

    By HenryMudd
    A “Show Text” blue box pops up on every page. It alone is bad enough, but it’s placement could hardly be worse. If it was at the bottom of the page, at least I could read the text while it is Popping up.
  • Good—with a couple flaws

    By FrankieMouse
    I am rather enjoying the app. I have an electronic subscription, but found I haven't been keeping up with reading the magazine since I've stopped receiving them in the mail. This app helps me to get back to reading every issue. I have found one bug so far and a little annoyance. First for the bug. I am unable to share anything to social media. Every time I try to shave via Twitter, or Facebook the app crashes. So, effectively I can't share via social media. Second the annoyance. If I close the app, when I re-open it I am taken to my library and not the article I was reading. I've tried downloading the issue to my phone, but the app still opens to my library. This app would be just about perfect if it saved my reading location. You can't really use the bookmark feature to save your issue progress, it basically puts a copy of the article on your phone. If you return to your bookmark you can't continue to the next article if the issue. This is fine as it allows you to keep certian articles handy regardless of the issue it was published in. I would just really appreciate being able to close the app and open it to where I left off.

  • Annoying “Show Text” popup

    By Mr. Chaswick
    Please remove, or provide an option to suppress, the annoying “Show Text” popup that appears, and reappears, on every page. Makes reading the magazine a pain. How many people use that option anyway??
  • Getting to know it

    By bclark96
    Initially, I gave only one star because I was unable to access the most recent issue. However, I discovered that previous issues are available. Seems odd, but not a dealbreaker.
  • Latest update does not work

    By JohnGalt43
    Will not download anything but current issue. Have you ever heard of TESTING???
