    Although another reviewer had trouble with the app/publication, I have found it generally quite good. (Although not perfect.) The magazine is high quality and worth my money. I have subscribed for 2 years now and will continue to renew. Thanks!
  • Buggy and Slow

    It takes forever to connect to the store, and then when I finally get to download the issue I paid for, the app crashes. Waste of money.
  • Works when it wants to.

    Store doesn't seem to work, the issues crash. I don't know what changed lately, but the app from from useable to useless pretty quickly.
  • Good App

    This is your typical magazine subscription app. Works as expected on those features. It is a little annoying that every time you open the app, you have to locate the issue or special issue you were last reading and then go find the page you were last on. Would be nice if it either had an option or defaulted to the last page and issue you were on.
  • Pretty good

    At the time of writing this review, the in-app price of an issue was $5.99. Far cheaper than print, at least where I am. At a local bookstore the the cost is $16.99. As another reviewer mentioned, the pages blur when changing pages. Also smaller screenshots of terminal output is somewhat blurry. Zooming in doesn't help much if at all. In portrait mode part of the screen on the right side isn't used. That might allow another font point size increase to be used? There was a page that had five videos on it. I don't know how much space that takes up. All in all, not a bad experience. The digital version is faithful to the print version so far as I can tell. I will start purchasing issues through this app, and hope the developers keep working at improving the experience.

    Try to create login and it crashes before asking my age. Fix that and I'll add stars.
  • Great! But a few things...

    It is great having this magazine on my iPad. That being said, I think there are a few things that would make this a better experience: 1- The pages appear blurry when they first load and then end up focusing. This might sound like a small issue but after flipping through the magazine for some time it does become a nuisance. 2- From what I could tell, even with a membership and after downloading an issue into the iPad, if you take your reading offline some of the pages will come up blank. Not sure if this is a bug or an intended restriction. 3- Each individual page appears to be floating in your screen. To me, it makes the magazine feel like many pages put together rather than a single piece of work. This one is tough to explain so I guess you would have to compare it to other magazines like Wired in order to know what I mean. Personally, I do not regret buying the membership but I would like to see the items above fixed before I would renew.
  • Not free

    The app is free but the magazines are not, the entire apple magazine store is like this. Cheaper to buy the paper edition.
