The 1874 Digital Magazine is a great design - but can we lose the interface? It’s tediously slow and unnecessary. How about just sending the PDF as an attachment?
Darn thing wouldn’t download first time. I deleted it and tried the link again to get, after some time, success.
I don’t need or want to sound effect as the page turns - but in real life when a magazine page turns, one sees the new page. Not a blank with a moving icon showing pages turning as the lousy interface gathers its energies to present the text and picture to its readers.
With a real magazine and bare PDF one can flick/scroll through the pages to see what’s there, here it takes time to load.
Once you have gone through the whole thing, you can go back quicker for a few pages them the delay comes again.
Please; ditch the interface, just send the PDF
