The official magazine of the hit TV series, Grand Designs Magazine is one of the best modern homes and interiors titles, packed with inspiring projects, expert advice and must-see shopping. With more than 50 pages of real homes every issue, dozens of pages dedicated to the latest launches and innovations, and fact-filled features dedicated to kitchens, bathrooms and decorating, it's an essential read whether you're embarking on a total redesign or simply smartening up your existing rooms.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is quite jerky when it comes to turning pages and does not flow - annoying with a magazine that puts photos across two pages. However, the most infuriating thing is the non-appearance of the regular supplements that the print editions carry. Other magazines manage to do this perfectly well so I cannot see why Grand Designs cannot provide a digital version of supplements. I have asked, but have been totally ignored. I won't be renewing.
Very poor and no easy way to cancel subscription
Very poor and no obvious way of cancelling subscription
This has become a waste of money in a very short time. The first issues were well worthwhile. Now, almost every swipe leads to an advert. Most articles are thinly- disguised sales pitches. The original concept was a highly entertaining and educative free-to-air tv programme. The magazine and the app originally offered something similar.
But these publishers now seem to be living in the past - a world where people paid money to read adverts. Thanks, but I can do that for free elsewhere.
Give me good content with links to relevant suppliers and I will make links to the things that interest me. Or give me free content and I'll accept the adverts ... But I won't read them, just hasten past. That's the way of this technology.
