    Issue downloads but the loading screen freezes the app.

    Crashed pretty much reliably the first time you launch it after it hasn't been used for a few hours or longer. Often forgets the login details so need to re-enter password. Reading occasionally freezes preventing thing such as scrolling down on articles. No ability to alter brightness of screen from within the app. Could be a LOT better.

    App has improved a lot since early version. Subscription price is very high though.

    Two weeks of figuring out how to use it, looking back at past issues, lovely. Now won't open anything, sticks on what I assume was the last thing I looked at, though there isn't actually a way of picking up from where you left off unless you leave the app open - is there another way of accessing my subscription please?!?

    The text size cannot be adjusted to the right size to read on my phone. The Google Play subscription does not include full access to material on the New Scientist web pages. Don't subscribe through Google Play. Subscribe directly through the New Scientist web page.

    Can't delete old issues, can't mark when read, just horrible to use.

    5 stars if you provide more control over style. Just changing font size is not enough. I would like to change the background to black/dark and the font to white for example. Like kindle app which easier on old eyes at night in bed. Plus navigation is not intuitive with redundant indeces.

    I've cancelled my subscription as New Scientist have not helped me to resolve a problem I was having with the app. I can't find the option in the app to delete old issues, the instructions on their website do not seem to apply to this app. Customer support have simply ignored my query, which should not be difficult to resolve.

    I installed this app a few months ago and I upgraded my New Scientist subscription. The app had some limitations, but I expected it to be updated regularly, however I haven't seen a single update in all this time. Old issues cannot be deleted, pictures cannot be zoomed, there is no search function, the app doesn't keep track of where you are, it crashes and so on and so on. And to add insult to in

    This app and the nonexistent website access to the articles make it impossible to read each weeks articles. Don't get me started on the support which treat you like a fuckwit which hasn't logged in even after screen shots of being logged in and not seeing the list of articles for the magazine.
