User reviews of New Scientist
I already get the magazine each week but it's nice to have the app too in case of boredom.

"this content is not available for this app" and a link that doesn't open when clicked. Utterly crap.

Love the content, hate the app. Trys and fails to update all the time and crashes. Needs to be made to work like the Guardian UK app whereby you can download the daily content in one file for review offline

Browse news stories within the app. (I don't think it supports auto DL over Wifi so that you can browse without internet connection)

Great app, which can be even better Thanks for the fantastic digital subscription model folks. I realise you are probably hard at work on new versions but there are a couple of simple interface issues that need addressing: • Better handling of pulling the notification drawer down causing text to scroll • Access to night mode/text size options without having to close and reopen issues • Auto-download of new issues, by WiFi only or WiFi+3G • Visual cues in issue cover flow view of which issues you are partway through reading. Thanks team!

Full content now only on website They have started putting in short versions of full articles. To read the full article you are redirected to the non-mobile optimized website... With ads. I have always liked the readability and ease of navigation of this app but it is totally negated if I have to navigate out if it to read the content I paid for.
