This is the worst App ever developed. I have two paper and 2 digital subscriptions and they never work on this App. Whatever you do don’t subscribe through Apple and use a web browser for access. If this App is representative of American Science, our time has passed. 3 years of constant misery.
I’ve been trying .... wait, I cannot see what am I writing,
What started off as a wonderful intuitive app that allowed you to zoom in to view figures and insights and bookmark articles has morphed into an app that is barely useful. To views figures now you have to use a tiny zoom window (what genius came up with that) photos can no longer be zoomed. Going back to paper here
I prefer to read the printed version, but with the app I can keep reading the issue wherever
Really handy. But it’s a bit easier to navigate in iBooks. Page lay out in a row at bottom. Would be god to have book mark and underlining capability. The app should look and feel like the magazine.
You have been reading Scientific American for years. The articles are top quality, written by experts in the field, and beautifully illustrated.
The Scientific American app is great. But you should not subscribe through Apple. You should only subscribe through the Scientfic American we site. The reason is that subscribing through the web site gives you access to Sci Am on all platforms, including the IOS app, but not the other way around. If you subscribe through Apple, your subscription is not recognized on the web site, and you cannot access the huge amount of additional timely material that they provide there. This restriction makes no sense, because both subscriptions are the same price. But you get so much more by subscribing on the web site. This is not made clear in the app store description. Very frustrating, and not something I would expect from Scientific American.
Why? It can't remember you login ID from one session to another. I always have to provide my login data each time I use the app to download an issue. If they can fix that one MAJOR issued then this would be a decent app to use.
I love bringing this with me everywhere I got my favorite publication, and I have every issue ever made in the palm of my hand. I wish there were a way on iPhone to download multiple issues at the same time though.
