Great info weekly and useful news
A magazine which I have read for nearly 40 years
Great content but slightly shifty control
I love the AP and cannot think of another photography magazine that is nearly as informative and down to the earth at the same time. So I was very thrilled to find that they have introduced the iPad version, because I no longer live in the UK and subscription overseas is rather pricy..
As always, the content is awesome and never disappoints. The control is a bit of a let down, however. Once zoomed in, dragging the page sometimes does not move you to the hidden areas of the current page but sends you to the next or previous page instead, which is irritating. Also, I would like to see the drop down menu for the content to show not just always the same four entries, but the actual list of all articles in the current issue.
Another criticism is that for overseas subscribers, there is hardly any point in viewing the adverts of Park Camera & Co. I would like to be able to skip over those relatively easily. I doubt it is the intention of the UK dealers to reach overseas photographers with their adverts so I cannot imagine it would hamper the advert revenue if they introduce such a function for overseas subscribers.
And just when you thought this app couldn't get any worse...
Oh dear, unresponsive, still no hi-res, still unforgivable for a photography app, error messages, sticky, and actually plain not working. Awful. Basically fire anyone associated with this rubbish. Did you, Amateur Photographer, pay for this flop? What a load of absolute disastrous rubbish. There's nothing good about it. And if you put it in the context of what is actually a half decent magazine, the contrast is even more stark. The magazine staffers must look at this and be frankly ashamed.
As a photography magazine I expect high resolution reproduction of images and content. This is only a reproduction of a scanned version of the magazine. If there is a small photo on a page and you pinch and zoom all you will see is pixelated blocks in the image. The magazine also explains some photoshop techniques with PC screenshots of the settings used, and will say "use the settings shown" in the tutorial. However if you zoom in to see the settings they are literally impossible to read.
If you are going to produce a magazine fit for iPad, particularly one about photography, ,you need access to high resolution imagery. I think this magazine is owned by Time so it's not like it's a small company with no access to resources, this is part of a global publication company.
Very poor and it fit for purpose.
The articles are good as are the equipment reviews, but if you're interested in photography and images then steer clear.
