    I would like to download issue one on to my iPad (I already have it on my laptop) as I intend to store them all here. However, I can’t seem to do this. Is only one download per email address / account possible? Secondly, I want to pay for issue 2 via PayPal as this means I don’t have to fill out credit card details etc. Can’t seem to access this option either…
