This app is ok ... just ok. The biggest problem is that it checks for new content several times a day and loses my place every time.
You build character as you seek to remain calm while waiting impatiently for the next issue, and you improve your information retention skills as you work on remembering which articles you read yesterday and attempting to recall the central thesis of said articles! Love it! Keeps the grey matter churning,
WHY CAN’T ONE SEE THE SCROLLBAR IN DARK MODE? WHY ARE PICTURES SO BRIGHT THAT YOU CAN’T READ TEXT? WHY CAN’T IT REMEMBER YOU LAST LOCATION IN APP? Who knows, who is John Galt?
There’s a fatal flaw where the app does not remember your last read article/issue position. Coupled by the fact that the app will check for latest content every now and then and then kick you back to home screen is making reading New Scientist a chore. I’ve previously feedback about this but somehow the developer isn’t listening.
Super relevant and engaging content.
If anyone knows how to log in AND be able to read the web version, I’d appreciate the help. Tried on safari, Firefox, chrome, everything, doesn’t work, keeps asking me to sign in while signed in -_-
This is a great app, easy to use and the content is saved on your device so you can view it off line. It will do its own housekeeping by automatically deleting old issues, or not, and you can easily browse through the older issues and download what interests you.
I was never any good at science at school - maybe it was the presentation? But I just love New Scientist. It’s ideal for picking up when you have a random 10 minutes, or sometimes I binge read several issues. The quirky British humor of the last couple of pages is worth it alone! It’s sort of the People Magazine in format, on a far more interesting level. Everyone who finds it at my house loves it. Totally worth the money.
The app does not recognize my signs on so I can use it. I’ve called customer service and IT support and still does not work on my iPad .
I have a couple of apps for weekly publications. One of them includes and audio version which I can listen to on the move. This app would definitely benefit from a similar functionality.
