    Subscription works, buy one issue and you have to read it all without shutting down or it loses the purchase even though Google play remembers.

    No problems with the magazine content, but the image looks fuzzy as if it has been scanned in. Navigating is fine but I could not get the+ button to work in the crossword so not sure if this isn't supposed to be accessible or simply doesn't work.

    The best magazine app for tablets I have been using so far. Very pleasant reading experience, nice articles with visuals, quizzes etc. It's just a pity the app does not include access to the archives.
