They're good lads and lasses, I agree. If you've not got a digital subscription yet I'd urge you to consider it.

The freebie online viewer they are using is dreadful. It's slow and it resets the zoom level each time you turn the page. I gave up.

Thanks for the feedback but we assure you we tested this against all similar page-turning magazine platforms and it was hands-down the fastest to load for a large magazine like Sound On Sound with over 160+ pages.

Puzzled why would you want to keep the same zoom-level as you turn pages? Surely you wish to see the double-page spread or single page (you can view both ways) in its entirety before you zoom into something?

But, each to their own, and sorry if it's not your thing -- that's why we offer 4 ways to view/read our monthly content when you take out a (great value) DIGITAL subscription. Each reading medium has its own pros and cons:

* iOS/Andorid Tablet with up to 5 simultaneous device licenses
* Web access to HTML versions of all monthly articles
* Full Issue PDF download (works on smartphones too)
* Digital Magazine page-turner
