The pics are crucial. V. best to you and thanks to all for your feedback. We've just taken delivery of the new mag about one hour ago. Looks good and I hope you all like it when it drops through your letter boxes! HMS
The image quality is really really poor on my ipad. The text when zooming in maintains its quality but the images are v v poor. Can all the magazines in archive be re uploaded with a decent resolution. I just paid for the years subscription but am not enjoying it with the current quality.
Please let us digital users know when this will be done.

Fully agree. Very poor image quality. Other publications appear ok on the ipad?

Image quality

Yes, all other publications are fine.
It seems it is the method being used to compress the files is probably the issue. Ensure the dpi / ppi is being set above 300. Currently looks like dpi of 100 or less for the images. Readers don't mind waiting a bit longer download the editions if it means you can actually see the images properly.

Agreed - very poor image quality.
Digital edition of RIB Mag doesnt come close to competing with other IPad mags. It appears to be just like a PDF copy of the paper version.

Good content though, but let down by viewing quality.

Totally agree - doesn't work on an ipad at all yet they advertise it that way.

Paid up subscription for this and I'm regrettting it. If there is a more non user friendly and un intuitive piece of software for browsing digital print I've yet to see it. I've spent the last 10 minutes trying to navigate to a review.

If I'm missing something please put me out of my misery.

Very poor.
