    No problem at all with the magazine, I like it so much I subscribed for the year. I'm not sure I will renew the subscription however as, not only is it only viewable online (!) it repeatedly crashes and sometimes does not show the written content at all, just the coloured background!!!!!!!!! It has also started showing me some of an article and then cutting out mid word what looks to be half way through. I have reported these issues on multiple times and received no replies, let alone any attempt being made to fix them. Would advise you avoid subscribing.

    Either this magazine needs to be available through google play or this app needs a dedicated tablet version. Using the app on a Samsung Tab S and it constantly crashes when moving between it and other apps. The only way to get it working again is to re-install the app completely as a restart of the tablet doesn't seem to help. The negative aside, the magazine is fantastic and has some interesting
