QST -- There's an App for That!

ARRL members who use Apple iOS mobile devices -- iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch -- can now download a new dedicated app https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/qst/id531766442?mt=8 to access and browse all issues of the digital edition of QST. This app allows ARRL members to read QST online or download individual issues of the journal for offline reading. This free app is available https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/qst/id531766442?mt=8 to ARRL members in the Apple App Store.

Using the New QST App:

- From your iOS device, go to the Apple App Store to search for and install the free QST app. Or simply click here https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/qst/id531766442?mt=8 to download the app now.
- Verify your Apple ID password.
- Open the app and go to the "QST Catalog" to browse available digital issues.
- Tap on the cover of an issue and select "Read" or "Download."
- Log in with your ARRL website username and password. If you do not have an ARRL website username and password, please register here http://www.arrl.org/myarrl.
- Each time you download an issue in the app, it is added to the "My QST Library" to view offline. Note: Before viewing issues offline, you must first initialize each issue online using your ARRL website login.
- To stream embedded video and audio, you must be connected to the Internet.
- This app may send anonymous usage statistics to ARRL and our service providers to help us improve QST and to better meet the needs of our members. To disable sending usage information, turn ON the "Disable Tracking" feature for the QST app in your iOS device settings. For more information, visit the Digital QST FAQ page http://www.arrl.org/digital-qst-faq and the ARRL Online Privacy Policy http://www.arrl.org/online-privacy-policy.

Using an Android or Windows Mobile Device?

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/qst/id531766442?mt=8 At this time, a native app is only available for Apple iOS devices. Users with Android or Windows devices can access the digital edition of QST from a web browser http://www.nxtbook.com/fx/archives/view.php?id=4d8f3fb65736c8b1e83e4879a8b0ef57. The web version runs in an Internet browser on nearly any device, including desktop or laptop computers, smartphones, tablets and e-book readers.

QST -- There's an App for That!

I wonder who keeps selling the League on stupid IT decisions. First it was the train wreck website, now an "app" for a platform that is used by a quarter of the smartphone market and half the tablet market, and losing ground from there.

If you're going to market yourselves in this manner, why not at least support the majority, or why not everyone? Is an android app really that hard to write? Hams are cheap. They buy $200 tablets, not $600 ones.

The thing crashes, it doesn't work on the Iphone I have.


It's one thing to have a stupid idea but one that doesn't work is sorta over the top.

The ARRL in my opinion and 37 years of being a Ham has always tried to instill an "Elitest" attitude.
Remember, they would never pay authors of articles because according to statements they made since the 1950's.... "an Amateur should be proud to contribute his article free of charge.... it is his duty".

Is this a product of the same top-notch programming team that produced LOTW?
