It should be hitting the Apple store within the next few days. The Android version will be available shortly there after.

2 - Will it be available in the Amazon store for Kindle Fire?

We're looking into whether or not we can get the Android version in the Amazon store.  Amazon does not make it easy to add new apps to their store.

I gather that the browser that comes with Kindles does not play well with eZymurgy, either.

The Android app's release is imminent, but unfortunately a technical issue with the Apple version has delayed its release until sometime next week.

I guess it is an app that provides reading content - sort of competing with Amazon's core market.

Got the app for my Samsung S3 / Nook and loving that i can read it anytime -- anywhere. Only suggestion i have is to improve on the reading format. Most readers allow for an article focused view for easier reading.

Beyond that great work.  ;)

Post by: denny on July 06, 2013, 04:37:33 PM
I can tell you that initially the AHA was going to use Newsstand for Zymurgy.  Apparently Apple did't like their app, so the AHA went back and designed an app specifically as app.  When they resubmitted it for approval, Apple didn't realize there was a change in focus and denied it.  When the AHA pointed out the change in direction, it set the approval process back.  Hopefully it'll show up this week, but it's kinda up to Apple.

Yeah I saw it last night in the app store on my iPad but was unable to download it because it is not supported on ios 5 and the first gen iPad with not support ios6.

I did see that it is missing from the store today.

The app is killer!  There is one slight bug that has been fixed, but the fixed version isn't in the store yet.  Sometimes, the app will hang on the splash page on opening.  Hard close and reopen the app and all is well.  Hopefully Apple will approve the fix and it will be available before too long.

So what exactly is supposed to happen?

The Zymurgy app showed up at the App Store yesterday? so I downloaded it.

I was able to download it to my iPad 2 with OS 6.1.3 and my iPhone 4S which has the a OS version.

I can login fine and the nice icons of past issues of Zymurgy show up.

I select one of those issues, usually the most recent one, and the download spinning gear pops up and spins and spins and...spins. Eventually it stops. The issue of Zymurgy is nowhere to be found. Is it supposed to show up in one of the ebook readers? I looked in iBooks but it was not there.

I've tried this with both the iPad and the iPhone with the same results.

Am I doing something wrong? I don't really see how I could be but...

At this point I am seriously underwhelmed by the new app.

Am I alone in this?

Oh well....

The issue you just downloaded is right where it was before you downloaded it, in the display of available issues.  The "Download" banner that was across the front of it is gone and the issue is available for reading.

I thought that might be the case but it does not seem to be happening. After the downloading stops the download banner is still there and all of the issue icons are locked up (i.e. don't respond in any way when tapped) until I turn the iPad off and on.

The downloading takes awhile so the iPad goes to sleep. I noticed that it seems that whenever the iPad is "awakened" while downloading Zymurgy the download stops shortly thereafter. I wonder if perhaps the issues are simply not finished downloading when I check on the progress. About how big are these files we're downloading anyways?

Perhaps tonight I will start the download up before going to bed and let things run hopefully to completion.  I hope this will resolve the issue but....

Thanks for the help.

I really don't know how big the files are.  I didn't time my d/l but I'd guess it took between 5-10 min.  Maybe you should adjust your sleep settings when you d/l?

Did not fix it.

I turned the sleep time to "never" and tried again. Eventually the spinning download gears when away and still nothing.

I guess I will wait for a new updated version of the app to come out and then give another go later.

Bummer...I was looking forward to reading Zymurgy from my iPad. Oh well...fortunately, I have DRAFT magazine, Beer Connoisseur read on my iPad in the meantime.

Hi Everyone-

Sorry if you're experiencing some bugs, we do have an update waiting for approval in the app store which will resolve the splash screen freezing issue, as well as enable iOS5 users to download and install the app.

Regarding the downloading issues bug - we have not experienced that on our end, but are looking into it. The files are quite large (50-75MB) and require a decent internet connection to download (we don't recommend downloading over cell networks). Also, we had to move the app out of Apple's Newsstand due to the AHA Model (members only benefit, the magazine isn't for sale). Because of this, we can only download one issue at a time and it likely the culprit for your buggy experience.

Generally speaking, if you 'hard close' the app and restart, most issues will resolve themselves, but please continue to post bugs here!

Thanks!

-Nate

UPDATE: 7/29/2013

The Apple app has undergone a round of updates. The changes include:
-Resolved issue with frozen splash screen: Some users experienced a frozen splash screen when running the app for the first time. This issue was being resolved with a hard restart of the app, but now it should not be an issue.
-Download Status Bar: The download status of individual Zymurgy issues will now be displayed
-iOS5: The app should now work for iOS5 users.

Thank you to everyone reporting bugs in this thread. We take into account all feedback and use what we can to further optimize the app. Please continue posting your experiences!

Cheers,

Before I got around to uninstalling and reinstalling, an update of the app came available in the app store.  I downloaded that and it started to download perfectly.  I also like the new clock that shows that it is downloading.  So, my issue is resolved, even though I don't know why.

Now, about that Kindle app?  It would be nice to have it on the device I actually use for reading.

I love having the issues on my iPad, since as a road warrior its nice to read them on the go, but that also leads to my biggest frustration. The app requires a data connection to keep you logged in. So sitting on a plane, with hours free to read, and I cant because the app can't confirm my account, and logs me out after a couple of minutes, assuming I could open the app in the first place.

I already logged in to download the issues, so why do i need an active data connection to read them? To me that undermines the entire point of downloading the issues v cloud browsing.

That is a great point.  I would love to hear an explanation.  In my experience, that is not how other magazines work.

Another app question - is there a way to delete issues once they are read?  If there is, I have missed it.  Unfortunately, I am space limited on the iPad and need to balance reading and music for each business trip.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I was told that you could read downloaded issues off line, but I just tried it and it didn't work.  There is unfortunately no way to delete issues at the moment. Believe me, I let them know that wasn't a good thing.  They plan on adding that, but there is no word on when.

OK, heard from the AHA IT dept.  They're looking into why it doesn't work if you're not online.  Like I said, it's supposed to.  They have also gotten a quote for the programming required to put in the delete feature and will get it done as soon as the quote is approved.  I think that will be pretty soon, but no definite timeline.

When will the next issue show up in the app?  I've already received it in the mail.

+1 to being able to delete issues.

+1 to being able to read without connecting to the internet first.

Looks like AHA has a way to go to get up to speed in the digital world. I got my BYO email and e-issue before the paper version hit my mailbox. Even on their Web site I have to log in to the site and then again to the message board. Just a little behind the times on the Web.

That being said I still can't wait to my eZymurgy!! Please hurry!!

Odd, I consistently get e-Zymurgy a week before I see my paper copy.

I can still only see the Jul/Aug 2013 issue on my iPad and my android phone?? I got the paper copy in the mail yesterday. Tried logging out and back in to see if it showed up but nothing yet.

I couldn't see the new issue on my Ipad either. Comes up fine on the computer though.

Yes, there was a couple hour delay between the email and when the app had the new version.  It looks great.

Any update on the app and the proposed improvements? I have another long trip coming up and I would love to have offline access.

I got a beta version to test yesterday, but I don't know what the release schedule is.

App update for iPhone/iPad is in testing now and should be released shortly. Android update will follow shortly there after. The new release will fix problems with deleting issues and accessing downloaded issues while offline.

Many of the problems with the apps stem from the fact that we want to offer the apps and associated content for free to AHA members. Membership is different than purchasing an individual magazine or a subscription. That model didn't play well with the Apple Newsstand (Google Play is a similar, but different story). In any case, the new releases should make the Zymurgy apps a really great resource for members.

Can anyone else access the Jul/Aug 2005 issue on the iPad/iPhone Zymergy app?  I get a document error message.

Additionally, when I touch the "X" to close the document error, the app downloads the issue behind the message, May/Jun 2003.  This may actually happen because the document error window goes away on its own.

Otherwise I think the app is great.  This version is much better than the previous one.

Thanks for pointing this out Scott.  I get the same error you are seeing.  Our Web Architect is looking into what might be causing the problem.

Glad you like the new version, it is indeed much improved!
