All aboard! So my pros I have to figure where to start, so here is a list:1. The second edition paperback is printed on high quality gloss paper.2. The cover is massive duty and looks great.3. The pictures are crisp and clear.4. The illustrations are sharp5. Even though I have been a train and model train buff since I was a kid I still learned some things the very first time I picked it up to read, ie. the scale and gauge section was extremely informative6. Well written by Chris Ellis and forward by James May7. The book is 175 pages and contents include: Forward; Introduction; Before you begin; The Horby Range; Building a layout; Scenics and Stuctures; Locomotives and rolling stock; Control and operation; Practical layouts; Appendix; and Index.8. The book is a amazing escapeCons:1. The book makes me miss Amazing Britian and especially Scotland even more than I usually do.2. The book makes to wish to buy more OO Horby and Oxford Diecast goodies.
Useless. Only allows flipping page by page and the page turning bounces back often. It does not allow one go straight to the article of interest. What does it take to the AAAS to hire a amazing programer, so to give a amazing experience to the magazine subscribers? Uninstalled.
Can you please place me in touch with the application development team? I currently have a Digital subscription but the Android device application is so poor that I often just read from my mother's Print subscription instead. The Android device application is almost entirely useless in Fresh York because it requires an internet connection to function, even after the Problem has been downloaded to the device. If I test to use the application on the subway, sometimes I lose the ability to read entirely until the next subway stop. Other times I can continue to read, but the application refreshes the page when a fresh internet connection is established, disrupting my reading. In all cases the application lacks primary features like proper zoom, highlighting, remembering the page, jumping to certain pages, linking like a PDF, etc. It is time for me to renew my subscription I would like to have a Digital subscription, but only if there are plans to improve the Android device app. Otherwise I will be forced to slay trees to read Science. Can you please place me in touch with the application development team? I am a software engineer myself so I can take this conversation to a technical level with them. Thank you. P.S The application requires a Digital subscription, Print won't work
Gotten worse. Been using the Android device application for a year or two, beautiful mediocre but it served it's purpose. I have not been able to log in for 3 or 4 weeks now. Contacted customer service with no response. Steer clear of this application until it is improved.
Really one of my better subs. I have been reading it from the news stand for years but now I'm saving trees and my carbon footprint is much smaller. Plus those niggling thoughts that created for restless night's sleep are going away. Or so I'm lead to believe...
Problems with zoom. All my paid for back-issues were no longer available when I connected a Pocketmags account. BTW, disregard complaints that back problems are not free with a current subscription. I have never seen a magazine subscription that gives free access to back problems and this is a non-profit publisher. Update. Fixed access problem by uninstalling then reinstalling the application and re-downloading everything. Annoying...
I discovered by going to the skeptic www service that this is the official application for the magazine. Overall it has amazing functionality and I did not have any of the purchasing issues that other reviewers have had. 1 reviewer said that you have to pinch in and out, and this is true, this application does not have an simple read mode like the other magazines on Google Play. But for me personally I am so used to reading PDF doents on my iPhone that reading this on my Nexus 7 was great.
Nexus 7 review. The magazine reading view is janky. Page flipping almost always ends up with half previous half current page. No zoom. It's unusable. I can only assume the developers didn't target a tablet. Text mode is semi useful for reading the articles, but the presentation is totally abandoned. You lose the flow and a lot of of the graphics. It kind of defeats the point of the magazine format. Disappointing.
