  • UI Options

    In ADDITION TO the other 1-star commentary, I find the lack of offering options to change/increase text size to be a Technical Foul, ejection from the stadium, and even grounds for suspension. Adjusting fonts, text size, backgrounds, and any other visual settings to me are THEE MAIN FEATURES digital reading! .... duh. What a contradiction this app presents to the very content provided within the pages of the magazine. Unless this is a dubious scheme to get free user-centric advice on how to design the next app version, it is just deliberate irresponsibility and disregard for PAYING CUSTOMERS. I understand the fear-based POV to protect content and strict adherence to proprietary/copyrighted material, but this is HBR... FIGURE IT OUT and MAKE IT HAPPEN.
  • Horrible- not user friendly

    Swiping through stack is not the best way to find things. List format of titles would be very useful. Still can’t figure out how to return magazine to free space up on my iPad. Badge indicator is on, no clue how to figure out why? Please update this app so subscribers can enjoy content digitally
  • Unusable

    This app keeps getting worse. You can’t bookmark pages or stories. You can’t even tell which issues you purchased. This is very unfortunate as they have great content.

    If HBR cannot figure out something as simple as user experience and nail it down, its not worth surviving as an org. The magazine in this app is worse than your average pdf. No interactivity at all. Maz is the worse publisher you could’ve chosen. Inc, Forbes and others who have chosen Maz have gone to trash as well. Improve your app and maybe I’ll be back. Yes the default view has been changed from stacked to grid, but once I click on a magazine it takes me to the stacked version and there is no way I can go back to the grid. Why can’t you just make it just a carousel? And can’t you figure out simple things like clickable links inside the magazine? If you can’t look at Magzter. Somehow Maz got a chokehold on you guys and it’s bringing you down with terrible experience.
  • Terrible app

    This mobile app is terrible. They’ve just taken the printed magazine and put it onto a screen. It’s not possible to scale the font(you need to zoom in and then move the page on the screen to read the entire page, then repeat for the next page!), no search, you can’t go to a specific article, no bookmarking, nor can you share a link. Check out the competition! For an organization that prints many articles about keeping up with the digital world this is a woeful attempt. Please read some of the stuff that you yourselves publish! I will not pay for a subscription if this is how I will be forced to consume the content.
  • Should be a ZERO

    This is one of the few reviews I have written. The application is terrible - I wanted to give HBR the benefit of the doubt but all the negative reviews here are correct. It's sad to see that a publication as expensive and and institution as prestigious as Harvard would allow this to bear their name. I am a health care professional and an executive - I travel, and want to carry articles with me in a useable format. I am astounded. HBR, please listen to this feedback and change your solution ASAP, otherwise you will lose subscribers.
  • Piece of crap

    This is probably one of the worst apps I have ever used. It is absolutely impossible to connect my subscription to get an issue of HBR. The customer service for HBR is pathetic, in the same way this app is useless. They take at least 2 days to reply my emails, and once they reply they simply copy a script somebody wrote and hit send.... no real customer service from HBR. From the app perspective it is the same problem. It is not user friendly and simply doesn’t provide real support to get things gong. A total shame that a brand like Harvard even allows its name to be put in an app like this. The programmers for this app should get fired today! Worst app in the whole app store
  • Awful. Just awful

    The updated version of this app is absolutely horrendous. Not that the previous version was amazing, but it was far better in terms of functionality. After the update I lost all my content, had to reconnect my account and then download everything all over again Now you have to thumb through a virtual stack of mags to find anything. No list view. No library. What 1st year app developer designed this??? I cannot believe for what this magazine costs that your team would allow such a horrible digital experience. Fire who ever was in charge of this project. Updated: so the app was changed to show all available content as tiles to start. Then you select one and your back to the stupid carousel view. You can’t get back to the tiles. Look, if you need my help to make this UX better, I’m willing to do it for free just so I’m not tearing out my hair every time I open this app.
  • Worse app ever!

    This app is awful... How has HBR put its brand on such a horrible software. It is unusable by all measure. I will be cancelling my subscription because I can’t use this app to read my favorite magazine.
  • Pointless

    What is the point of this app if I can’t even easily access or download my purchased books and content? HBR please look at improving this app, as I am starting to regret my decision to subscribe if I can’t get content easily.
