Now working on Lollipop, but did take too long to fix. Navigation works better too. Still needs some work.

Unusable - authorisation service permanently down. Requests for a refund have met with no reply. They take your money then do not provide the advertised goods. Should be removed from the app store until they figure out how to deliver what people have paid for.

I have changed my password 6 times and still cannot log on. I can view the latest issue on a Web page but not on the app!

Updated App has deleted all my previous downloads. Worse I am now not even able to login now. What a mess.

Was great. Had all back issues downloaded to read. New update wipe them all and only goes back a couple of months so cannot get them back. Incredibly annoyed.

Just when I was beginning to tire off this app, they introduce a serious upgrade that's addressed many of its problems.

Pretty average app. I suspect the bean counters decided this was a better option than using kindle or whatever. I still hate the way it loses authentication randomly. How could anyone mess up the simple process of what a back button is for? And why is the index so weird?

The new Android OS 5 did present some problems (It didn't work at all) but these have been solved and some extras provided in the new ' international' version. Thank you new scientist for a great Christmas present, I can once more enjoy your fantastic magazine on tablet and smartphone.

The new version has more sensible UI and finally works on Lollipop.

Never miss an article but now it is painful in not being able to use the android app for more than a month though have fully paid subscription. Since I read only when offline, app is the only one I use to access the magazine. So 5* for content and 0* for app.

Long term subscriber no longer using this app. I don't get why I now have to pay more in subscription to use this app when I can log in and view the site through my phone/ tablet browser for no extra (or just read the print copy I get every week)!
