Makes for easy reading across devices. The best part is that the content is the same as the print edition. No changes. Keep it up!
The app is great but the audio function still cuts off the last two or three sentences on each article! And this has been the case since over 6 months, please finally fix this issue!
Articles are top notch but the app reading experience could use some work
The earlier version used to download issues in units. It let you read each unit even if the entire issue couldn't be downloaded. The last few updates have been terrible. If you lose your Internet connection midway through the download (happens often in India) you restart the download from zero. I don't understand how this is an improvement.
I bought galaxy NOTE 4 and the app shows that I can enjoy gift subscription but I can't have access to premium subscription.. Plz resolve this issue
Also now it won't work (activating digital acees )
Keeps downloading the magazines as soon as you touch them. Also, no podcasts.
