Do not upgrade. Stay on v47. The old version of this app was clunky and in dire need of an overhaul. With this new version they’ve somehow managed to make it worse. It’s slow, barely responsive. It can’t seem to remember that I’ve logged in. Issues apparently can no longer be downloaded for offline reading. The whole app seems like it’s just a frontend to web pages. The interface is completely different in landscape mode compared to portrait. Good luck trying to zoom in on anything. Given how much a PW subscription costs and how simple a magazine reading app should be, this really is unacceptable. I think maybe it’s time to get rid of GTxcel and find a new vendor to develop the app.
I pay $19 a month for this subscription. But it suddenly won't let me download issues, present or past. Half the time it crashes. When I try to hit the contact button nothing happened. So I can't get the magazine and I can't make contact with anyone who might be able to help me. Useless.
Call me crazy, but when I double-tap a full page spread I expect to zoom in on a single column. When I try to zoom with a pinch gesture, I expect the text not to snap back to full page. When I select a headline from Feeds, I do not expect to see the headline on a new screen in a larger font. I expect to see the story.
