As promised, the company we use has been testing the app to see what the problem is with offline access. Here are the results (written by the tech):

These are the steps I completed:
1. Opened the Genii app.
2. Selected the "issues" icon on the black navigation bar
3. Selected the "Settings" tab at the top of the page that loads
4. For the "Choose your network settings," Selected the "Offline"
This automatically downloads the entire edition at start up for
offline reading. However, it is NOT instant. There are many pages in
each edition, so you NEED to make sure the download wheel that appears
on the black navigation bar reaches 100% before you disconnect from
the internet.

When I tried this, I made sure the wheel finished spinning. Then I
went to the thumbnails page and made sure all pages were showing up. I
then disconnected from the internet by selecting airplane mode in the
iPad settings. I flipped through every page of the 11/01/14 edition
and they were present.

I then completed the same steps for the 5/01/15 edition. However, I
skipped waiting for the wheel to reach 100%. I then disconnect from
the internet. I found pages 3 and 4 were missing.

I reconnected to the internet and opened the edition back up and
flipped to those pages. I then disconnected from the internet again
and the pages were there. I did the same for the 1/01/15 edition. When
I disconnected from the internet, I found that page 3 was missing. I
connected back to the internet, flipped to that page and then
disconnected. It showed for me when I was later offline.

Readers should follow steps 1 through 4 above. For now, they can
double check before they loose access to the internet by switching to
airplane mode on their device and checking for the pages.

Chief Genii again: Please check whether this solves the problem of off-line reading for you!

When I hit the settings icon it just says the version and a drop down menu for how many issues to store. There is no option of network settings...
