    I hate having to leave such a negative review, as I read and enjoy AFP regularly. However, I purchased a digital-only subscription via the AAFP website and am not able to access my subscription via the app. I purchased the subscription specifically for use with my iPad, so I'm extremely disappointed to find that the app has issues with access. I've contacted both AAFP and the app developers, so I'll hope to adjust my review accordingly once the issue is resolved.
  • App needs work

    By Samueltlogan
    There are problems in how the app acts. Like when you go to a quiz, press back, etc the app gets a little confused and doesn't act the way you'd think it would. The other problem which is huge is that whenever there is a table or figure in the article, you can't click to enlarge or zoom in which makes the nearly unreadable. I would also like to "star" articles instead of bookmark them.
  • Better than individual pdf downloads falls short on usability

    By Raptordoc
    Annoying how each time i return to the app I have to download the issue over. This is the only limitation.
  • Too many ads

    By Hospital Doctor
    I have never seen so many advertisements in an ap. You have to scroll through up to 5 or 6 pages to get to each article, unless you navigate using the contents tab. The content is great, but do you really need that many advertisements using extra memory for the downloaded content?
  • In addition to our $800 annual membership fee...

    By Mini Jimi
    ... the Academy wishes to extort an additional $200 annually for the privilege of reading the magazine supported by our membership?! Just for the convenience of not having to download the PDF from the website?! Because the bean counters behind this nickel and dime policy have no respect for the family physicians without whom the AAFP itself would not even exist?! I am disgusted...
  • A decent first effort, but behind the times...

    By TrueB
    It may be my lack of imagination, but it is difficult to see wha sort of use case this app envisions fulfilling. While it allows a sort of idle perusal of the contents of the magazine, a medical journal is typically engaged in more interactively that idle flipping. It is nice to be able to open up a plaintext view of the article devoid fo the formatting, but being unable to export that article to PDF or import it into apps where one can highlight, underline and otherwise annotate severely limits its functionality. To add to that, the app is achingly slow.
  • Crashes

    This needs to get fixed!
  • Crash app

    By hmngomez
    This app has only had one successful launch from my phone. It crashes every time. I have deleted and reinstalled - no luck. I have installed and powered off/on the phone - no luck. iOS 7 issue?
  • Great app, but limitations

    By FP Doc
    Works well and easy to use and read. Very disappointed that, despite my costly membership in AAFP, I have to buy issues that are older than 3-4 back-issues. Ridiculous! Agree with other reviewer that a highlighting tool would be useful.
  • How about a highlighting tool?

    By Mykewithay
    Great App. Very functional and practical. I like that links can be easily referenced on the device. But, you guys really dropped the ball not having some kind of highlighting or mark-up tool. How many doctors that you know don't highlight when they are reading educational content that they will reference later for studies? Guys, please spend the time writing an update that has a mark-up tool and then you will have a perfect App!
