QST App on Android N5TEV on 14/1/19
First, if this is posted in the wrong place, mods please move it.

What is the deal with the app? I have not had issues with the app for nearly a year, but starting with the February 2019 issue of QST there seems to be a bug with downloading the magazine.

The progress spinner (0-100%) seems to move much quicker after starting the download, but once the issue is "downloaded", only the first dozen or so pages appear. Reading any further into the magazine results in an indefinite spinning circle.

And, yes, I've tried all the usual stuff to resolve, including clearing the app cache and date (loosing my downloaded magazines), rebooting the device, and even uninstalling and reinstalling the app from the Google Play store. No dice.

I can go back and redownload the January and prior issues fine. Either something is wrong with the February 2019 issue, or some changes have been made on the server side that has borked the content.

Anyone else having issues? Can I get someone on the ARRL staff to respond?

ARRL QST Android app is Potentially Dangerous NS6Q on 18/7/16
Why not just allow members to log in to their ARRL.org accounts and download QST as a PDF each month?

The current app is quite poor.
