A few design flaws make these articles difficult to read. Swiping left or right when in the reader view goes to the next article, which seems like a fine idea on paper. In practice, this functionality misfires constantly, reloading the article from the top of the page each time. The tables are difficult to read because although there is functionality to zoom in on small text, you can not scroll across the rows of the tables once zoomed in. It’s hard to read and process the content smoothly while constantly zooming in and out on various aspects of the table. Put together, these small design issues really limit the readability of the articles on the app. Although I read other journals and magazines on my phone/tablet without issue, I much prefer the print version of AFP to this app.
Been reading AFP on paper for years but just discovered on line app. Same wonderful journal and have read several months of journals plus taken quizzes on my phone- handy but if I tap or try to enlarge or reduce a table it will often jump back to beginning or completely out. However AAFP Is a great organization and I am confident app will be even better over time
Articles appear as downloaded however, articles are not available
I have an active membership but the app won’t recognize my login information. Poor performing app
Despite having an active subscription, when I enter my valid email, the app is not recognizing my subscription, as a result I am not able to use the app. I hope AAFP can hire quality programmers to overhaul the entire app.
AFP is a great journal. Nice to be able to read articles on the go. However the main benefit I see of this app would be to submit CME quizzes. Why is this functionality not in the app?????
Does not load any journals, crashes all the time!
It’s great when it’s working - which is rare. Even when an issue is supposedly downloaded, the next time I open the app to continue reading, I have to download it again. When trying to access a particular article once downloaded (supposedly), it won’t load right the first time at least half of the time. Downloaded issues should stay downloaded, it they don’t, and navigation is super glitchy.
I haven’t experienced the other problems people are reporting because I can’t even log in!
I like that I can read on the go, but I downloaded the app so I can take the quiz as I go. This app would be much more widely used if the CME quizzes were available in the app rather than through the link to the aafp website.
