    Sounds nice, but is it Android-compatible as well?

    I'm guessing only the first issue will be free but it is only fair. Congrats, the mag looks great (I've crashed it already but don't worry, I have cursed fingers...)!

    @saidseni -> Currently there are no plans to charge for this magazine! This is just another way for showing great content! So please also tell your friends and everyone you know about the lomo mag ;)

    @stratski -> We started for now with the iPad version to see how the feedback will be and hopefully we will also be able to add android later one!

    I can't get it to download it gets to 85% then stops........ Been waiting all day to download hehehehee

    @snoop from what i saw it looks dope. and nice to see there is one of my pics inside. anyway atm it´s hard to have a closer look at it because it breaks down from time to time when scrolling. 5 minutes open 5 downs. besides that: thumbs up!

  11. snoop
    snoop ·

    @bloomchen do you see any pattern here? We will also look into this more!

  12. bloomchen
    bloomchen ·

    @snoop nope, didn´t notice a pattern. but it just broke down again after opening.
    btw: features i like to see: can´t really name it but i think everyone has seen this spot he´d love to visit to take a pic of. for people who did this it would be great to see the inspiration pic and the one shot when finally making it to the place.

    @snoop: Cool! I'm spreading the word already!

  19. stratski

    @snoop: I'll keep my fingers crossed for good feedback then. Maybe all android people could drop a line to show that we're longing for mobile lomo too...

    I have been trying all night to download the content - unfortunately it's always stuck at around 30/40%...

  22. objectionableconformity

    more people have android at this point, an android market app is necessary. I can at least still check on flipboard, though I spend an appalling amount of time in front of a computer so it doesn't matter to me much either way.

    Please make one for Android, too :-)

  25. snoop

    @kaye1110: what ipad are you on? so we can try to figure this out!

  26. snoop
    snoop ·

    @objectionableconformity : currently a big majority of tablet users on our website are on iOS. this is why we also decided to start with the iOS version, but we obviously want to expand! thanks!

  27. objectionableconformity
    objectionableconformity ·

    @snoop no biggie. I like that you're on flipboard, but I do far more on my PC when I really want to engulf in the vast lomo world. I would be eager to see what your app actually entails though. I am patient.

  28. slerched

    How about adding a Windows 8 App? And Windows Phone 8 App? And Android? I would love to use this app, but don't currently have a device that would allow me the capability. And when I get my Surface 3.... definitely won't be hitting here with anything else.

    Awesome work! Cool to see Lomo pics with this beautiful layout. The app works well, the "Awesome Album" section is much more readable with it. A tipster section would be cool in the succeeding issues.

    I feel like I'm missing out as the mag won't download. Tried loads of times and the download keeps stopping just after 50% (around five minutes). Any ideas??

  31. snoop
    snoop ·

    concerning the download issues we are now trying out different things. we think it is because the download times out if you have a slower wifi connection. at the moment we can just suggest to re-install the app and download it again. and we are working on an update currently.

  32. bgoh29
    bgoh29 ·

    I was having the same issue on download, will try tonight.

  33. kaye1110
    kaye1110 ·

    @snoop I'm on an iPad mini Retina. I'll try re-installing the app tonight too.

  34. bgoh29
    bgoh29 ·

    Yup, still not working. Why can't the connection time be doubled?

  35. piercarlot

    i wait the android version please do it soon

    i want this but always gets stuck..... i'll try deleting and reinstalling the app. wish me luck

  37. kaye1110
    kaye1110 ·

    It's still not quite working... And every time I tried, the download starts from zero again. Is it possible to make it pick up just where it was left off? Thank you!

  38. snoop
    snoop ·

    we are now also changing the way of storing the issues and the download, which we will update also soon!

  39. chrisg35mm
    chrisg35mm ·

    Hey - why not just have a monthly magazine in PDF as well to download so it can be viewed on any device?

  40. stouf
    stouf ·

    Same question as @chrisg35mm : )

  41. guanatos
    guanatos ·

    I'm loving the way the content flows! Congrats you guys, this first issue is amazing :)

  42. snoop
    snoop ·

    @chrisg35mm: we are working also on a web version of this. the way that the content flows now it is difficult to showcase e.g. slideshows in a nice way in the pdf. but we are now working on solutions for this too! We will now need to first also solve any problems we have with the current app version and will for sure also look into the webview / pdf solution.

  43. kaye1110
    kaye1110 ·

    Thank you, it's finally working! The layout is beautiful!

  44. iamtheju
    iamtheju ·

    Instead of making an Android app, could you just make it available in PDF format. That way it will work for everyone and there will be no app crashing issues!!!??

  45. iamtheju
    iamtheju ·

    lol, just read the other comments. Alternatively it would be great on Kindle and probably flow better!

  46. jeriane

    @adi_totp congrats my friend ! You make the cover man !!
