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.

Agreed.  It is a beautiful app, espeically on the larger iPad screen.

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 received an email yesterday that the Sept/Oct version was ready for download.  I haven't received the hard copy yet.

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

This is true for me as well.
