How it works: economy
My god I'm fed up of reading reviews from people that are so ignorant...do you really think they are going to give this stuff away! Seriously!!! How exactly did you think they would make money from it? And don't use the excuse that you paid a lot of money for you phone! Because guess what theres a 100 other phones you could of bought instead! So don't blame the billion pound company for you wanting to buy their shiny product! The app it's self seems fine ive never had any problems with it, it's easy enough to use unless you are brain dead although it is definitely designed with the iPad more in mind, but still it does exactly what is supposed to so unless you are just another complainer it's fine!
Be aware, my wife bought a subscription to this mag, but despite having family sharing turned on, and it previously being accessible, the app no longer seems to support family sharing.
Very disappointing, I was enjoying the content.
We need to try it out
The problem with many magazine offerings on iOS (and all the other platforms), is that the interface can be tediously slow and the layout, dull and unimaginative. We really require these days to have a sample version to move through and test.
I think I would enjoy a good number of these issues but…
a. I have no idea what is included in each magazine
b. I feel reluctant to pay for a random issue, only to be disappointed by the same old scanned PDF offering all over again (it may be brilliant, but how do I know?).
So, please provide a sample few pages to view and include an index to the subjects covered in the various issues. Thanks.
Oh… and by the way, sure you can orient to landscape mode for a static preview (although it wasn't clearly mentioned), but that is no indication of the interactivity within the magazine itself. Also, the contents page is far too tiny to be legible.
I think this typifies the problem with the thinking surrounding mobile development. These are not magazines, they are something different. Delivering the same content, albeit digital, in the same format is not the answer. Magazines are tactile. It's about the glossy pages and scanning from one page to the next. It's not possible to do that on a tablet without panning, swiping and zooming. It's a lot of work for not much reward. You have all this extra power at your disposal, so use it. Make the page dance.
