I don't have an iPad but have a 7" Nook and use a 10" Android tablet sometimes. PDFs are OK to read, at least in zoom mode, which is kinda counter intuitive when dealing with magazine formats anyway (multiple columns), and they are storage hogs because of the quite decent resolution and quality of the images. A 32GB mem card comes in handy.
The font of the eZymurgies in Flash Player is very, very difficult to read, way too thin, even zoomed in at 200% it's not sharp and the shapes are badly defined. Ultimately it remains annoying, even when all the stupid effects are turned off.
Again, if anyone downloaded the PDFs of the back issues I'm very interested in a copy. I wish I had done that. As usual, good things aren't there to last.
