Love the content and the interface, but the lack of ability to download issues for offline reading is a serious problem. Please address this!

Since the latest revision, downloads stop at 65%. I have contacted the Science membership customer service and they can't resolve the issue. I will have to go back to getting hard copies I guess.

I’m an AAAS member but this app does not recognize email. This app doesn’t appear to be connected with AAAS. Totally useless.

seems to download same issue multiple times

the app should only download an issue (especially the “current” issue) one time. but it seems that each time i launch the app it (very slowly, though that may be my own network connection) re-downloads the issue. and, maybe, having downloaded the “page view”, it *still* needs to download the “text” version of articles? network latency is important to minimize, so it would be great şf these issues could be fixed. cheers.

I too can not login. Credentials work correctly on Chrome and Safari. Why have an app with your organization’s name on it that isn’t fixed quickly. Total embarrassment for the AAAS.

Offline mode doesn’t work correctly - quality issues

Pharmwheel's Review of The Journal Science

Since they have introduced the revised interface, the offline mode is not working properly. I was looking forward to catching up on about 3 issues on a flight but despite selecting the “Download” issue button on each issue at home on Wi-Fi and allowing the progress bar complete for the 3 back issues, once I was out of Wi-Fi range, I get the “offline mode doesn’t allow using this feature” message. This is extremely frustrating since the whole point of downloading an issue is to read it when I don’t have a Wi-Fi connection. Previously, the interface would tell you which issues were downloaded and which were not downloaded but despite repeated attempts to download an issue, the interface never indicates any changes. Although, for some strange random reason one back issue was viewable offline but others were not. Why does the revised preview interface show progress of downloading but then disappears after 65%? Additionally, this download progress is confusing because it’s separate from the downloading of the older magazine view via clicking on the magazine cover image. It’s unclear what exactly is being downloaded in the newer preview mode. Please spend some time fixing these quality issues. As always, Science articles are valuable and well written. Accessing them is now the issue.

A joy to use

The latest update to the app vastly improves usability on mobile devices. It is a far cry from the old version. I urge you to try it.

Greatly improved since March 2018

Seamless transitions from the journal format to a digital-friendly format. Very impressive. You should try. The journal format allows one to appreciate the work of editors and journal designers, to catch one’s attention, while the digital-friendly format makes reading a real pleasure. Thank you!

Same authentication problem as most of the 1 star reviews. These reviews go back a year, so you would think the problem would be addressed by now. Back to the browser for me!
