I recently subscribed to the electronic version of Genii and am having trouble with the apps on my 7" Android tablet (An ASUS MemoPad 7) and phone (Samsung Galaxy S3).

(1) On both the phone and the tablet, when the app is first installed it asks if it should store issues on my internal memory or SD card, but it shows the same amount of free space for each (corresponding to actual free internal memory). When I tell it to use the SD card, the app fails to go further (gets stuck at "loading...") and I have to uninstall/reinstall. Using internal memory works, but I'd much prefer to use the SD cards as they have more free space. Any ideas on how to get that to work?

(2) When I tap on a page on my phone, the app switches to the text-only view which lets me scroll up/down for much easier reading. Great feature. However, on the tablet when I do the same thing it switches to a split screen mode -- only half of the available space is given to the scrollable text, the rest is a smaller version of the page images. This leaves the text-only area not much larger than on my phone, pretty much defeating the purpose of using the tablet. Is there a way for the text-only mode to use all (or at least most) of the tablet's screen?

68 views and no one else has these issues?
Or no one has a solution?

Re: (1) The Genii app works fine on my Acer. There are 2 Genii apps on the Play Store. If you are using the first one, delete it and download the second one by Tecnavia. Also, when you search for the app, search for "GENII." Do not search for "IGENII" or you won't find it. The search engine is stupid. If you are now using the Tecnavia app and you are still having problems then contact Mr. Kaufman and he will let the programmers know.

re: (2) As far as I know, that's the way it works.

I saw Richard's answer "over there" and now I realize that the answer to both of your questions is, "That's the way it is." I have never tried to save issues to an SD card and did not realize that feature is unavailable. Sorry if my answer was misleading.

We are hoping to upgrade our Android apps within the next month or two.
