Does not work for print subscribers
on July 10, 2012
I was excited to see with my print issue today information about using the tablet edition. I followed the instructions and pressed the button for "Current Magazine Subscribers Tap Here" and it goes to a loading page that does not load. Disappointed as the advertising that came with the print edition had me excited and then I met with a buggy, unusable application. Giving 1-star for now; will be reviewing again when the app is fixed and allows print subscribers to view the magazine.
UPDATE: I was able to go to this URL:
and add my print subscription to my existing Conde Nast account. After that, I was able to log into the application. I had to free up space on my KF though before I could download an issue (the issue I am downloading is 241MB and is slow to download (1/3 of the way downloaded after 10 minutes), I'm pretty sure it's not my connection; also does not load in background so I have to keep the BA application and can not do anything on my KF).
I'm assuming that when the issue loads it will be a nice reading experience, much as the New Yorker app is, but all of the other hassles has given such a bad impression that I do not feel this application is a good user experience.
