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.
Oct 13, 2010
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)

Buggy The articles are pretty great, but the app has lots of bugs and is laborious to use. When I share an article, it scrolls all the way back to the top, for example.

The magazine is as good as always, shame that the app is very basic and buggy.

Phone identified app as malware Didn't get very far as my phone locked the app down while I was downloading the first free issue. App flagged as malware uninstalling recommended?

Needs a LOT of work Regret loosing my print subscription for this barely usable crap. Needs to store current location in issue and reopen there after yet another not responding error.Zoom on images and charts and improve touch handling as scrolling is chaotic but judging from other reviews I got off light as mine actually works but is a royal pain to use. At the very least this rubbish should be bundled free with print subscription
