An update has just been pushed out to Google Play Magazines with a small but welcome set of improvements. Version 1.0.1 has home screen and library performance improvements, better recognition of available space for your magazines and bug fixes targeted at the Nexus 7 and Jelly Bean.

These kinds of updates aren't glamorous, but we're okay with that. Every once and a while you've got to get excited about the ones that bring stability to your apps too. If you're a magazine reader, hit the Play Store link above and get your update.

Google Play Magazines updated with Nexus 7 and Jelly Bean fixes


I liked the notification/widget hybrid system they described, where you can expand a notification into a sample of the application. Or something like that.

If anyone else is using this to read magazine this update just made the app entirely tolerable. It still has a small delay while it loads each page but it's not such an affront to the user anymore. It only delays for about 1/2 second whereas before it would sometimes delay for up to 3-5 seconds.

I'm happy with the update. :)
