App Reviews

  • Great service, app needs updates

    By Ol_Patchy
    Needs to be updated for newer iPhones/landscape mode etc... only reason for 3 star reviews. Love the service, used to receive the paper copies and was excited when I could get it on my iPad mini. App is a little wonky on my iPhone XS Max.

  • So Good

    By Dac1943
    I have to read every issue front to back, well not everything but I just enjoy this magazine and bonus issues
  • Love this App

    By Yodaman70
    Great reading app. Just a few tweaks to get a 5 star needed. Should be able to read in Landscape Mode and read as just text. App opens quickly. Easy to find the issues you own or to see list of regular or special editions. Images are HD quality on my iPad Pro even when blown up to maximum size. And magazines are wonderfully written and displayed.
  • Excellent Magazine

    By ChrisJBooth
    Easy to read, informative, well written and researched.
  • Great....but

    By Suze from Texas
    This magazine is great but many times the articles that are supposed to have audio, they don’t work. Would love more audible since I have vision issues.
  • Don’t buy this it’s a trap

    By smbuck62
    I accepted their offer of a trial and then failed to cancel in time and was charged $67. I attempted to use the app and registered to use the library but can never get in. It’s a constant barrage intended to get you to purchase more subscriptions. I have not been able to access and read anything. I’m going to complain to Apple about this app.
  • Beautiful Magazine

    By Edna Millay
    If you already love history, this magazine is a fun way to take a break from your 500 page tome and read short, beautifully illustrated articles on a variety of topics. If you're just getting into history, it's a good way to sample a variety of topics. That said, the mag is almost completely Anglo-centric and caters to already well-developed English audiences enamored of the Tudors, the middle-ages, World War II, Vikings and Celts, and these basic areas get covered over and over again, albeit from many angles. Nonetheless, I really enjoy it. Another mag, World Histories, may be more palatable to those wanting a less England- focused dose of history.
  • Enjoy

    The articles are great being about little known facts about well known people and stories about not so well known people. The app itself can be a problem as it does not always download easily
