A completely rebuilt digital QST app for the Android platform now is available from publisher Nxtbook Media, which responded to readers’ frustrations about getting the app to work properly. The fix took longer than expected, but it is finally here!
Members who have enabled automatic updates on their devices will not have to do anything; the application will update automatically. Readers who have automatic updates turned off can obtain the new version by visiting the Google Play Store.
Functionality in the new app remains the same, although the layout is slightly different — displaying the most recent magazine at the top and two or three books per row instead of in a single column. Download times should be faster as well.
For optimal performance, it is recommended that Android users have the most up-to-date Android operating system, which is Marshmallow 6.0.
