Please create an Android app for American Rifleman. Android is installed on more devices than iOS and Apple does not align with my political views. I'm a little surprised iOS got their own app first. Please make it available on Android and other digital devices. I just renewed my membership and elected a digital edition just to save trees. For now I'll have to use my Win8 tablet to read AR.

In addition to a request for access from Android devices, why not make it available on Kindle or any of the many other e-readers?

98[%] of the equipment in business runs Windows. The best mobile devices today are running Windows... I know this is new but check for yourself. Best photos, best hardware, best of all it looks like it is a grown up version of the kiddie stuff from Apple. Please expand to include additional platforms. Apple isn't even philosophically operating on our wavelength!!

My wife gets Southern Living on android, and it looks great. Why is the NRA not as modern as Southern Living?

The February 2014 American Hunter says the digital magazine is available for iPad and desktop. Where is the desktop app?

Great app, lots of features. I don't own an Ipad. When will the NRA app be available for my Windows 8 Surface tablet? I would love to have it or have access to pdf versions of the magazines. Thanks!

Last two months I have gotten my American Rifleman and when I try to save to PDF I get nxtbook.com not responding due to long running script message. I have no trouble downloading my other digital magazines to PDF. PDF makes it som uch easier for me to read. I'm a lifetime benefactor member and have been receiving digital downloads for several years. With no problems, just lately. Anyone else having problems?

The magazines dump after a certain period of time, and you have to re-download them, I would prefer to download the magazine than use the iPad app. How do I do this?

Would be nice if the app could remember our member number so I don't have to keep taking my card out.
