Re: offline access on the iPad app

So, I decided to try again saving the new, suprisingly-covered issue using Richard's steps above. Did everything correctly, checked that all the pages were there, had the download option enabled, etc. Went to airline mode, scanned through a few pages, all seemed good. This morning, turned on the iPa...

Re: offline access on the iPad app

Interesting.

I downloaded the latest update to the iOS app and the offline problem is still there. Bill, I'm leaning more to your theory because the percentage counter quickly races up to 100%; it's clear that that material is not being downloaded.

Re: offline access on the iPad app

Bill, I just read your post on the other thread, and I experience all of that too -- particularly the times when some elements of the page are there but the text itself is missing. And the blurry pages too. I hadn't thought that the 100% indicator might be inaccurate. That seems like it could be a p...

Re: offline access on the iPad app

Scott, I just realized that you can set the number of issues that will be retained by the iPad. Tap the issues button on the bottom. Tap the settings tab on the top of the new window that opens. Choose a number from the dropdown menu: the iPad will retain up to--I believe--10 issues. The default mi...

offline access on the iPad app

I feel like I must be the only one with this problem or else others would have posted by now... But does anyone else find the iPad app completely impossible when it comes to offline access? I click the "offline" mode on the settings page, download an issue until it gets to 100% and note th...

Missing pages/sections in issues

Several times I've come across incomplete issues on the iPad app. Usually I just forget about it and move on, but looking for something specific in the August 2000 edition made me stop and inquire through this post. That back section of the book, including the whole review section, is missing on tha...

Re: Derren Brown - Penguin Live - Jan 4, 2015

Overall, the whole Penguin lecture thing is very good. And, yes, if there are at least two people out of the coming five you'd like to see, the $50 monthly pass is worth it. I've done this several times, the result being that I have a ton of unviewed ones on my hard drive. The thing is, the Penguin ...

Am I the only person having a problem with this trick described in the August issue of Genii? I can think of ways to correct what I think is a mistake in the explanation, but they are not very elegant. Am I just reading this wrong, or does Doug do it another way? (At least the way I am reading it, t...

Dear Richard, Thanks for the reply. It's hard for me to adjust the settings because it says my subscription is not active; I am logged in.

No, the browser based system is for your desktop and laptop computers. Apple was supposed to have put our app up yesterday, but for some reason it's not there yet.

Re: "Tim's Vermeer" (Not Magic, but ...)

It's a good doc -- Teller plays it fairly straight in terms of documenting Tim Jenison's quest to replicate a Vermeer and prove the possibility of an optical method in his painting. There's not really any of the usual P&T anarchic humor, but none is needed. The story itself is fascinating, and b...
