Ratings and Reviews
Looks bad on iPad Pro
Not optimised for larger screens so looks pixelated.
Where has the interactivity gone?
Not generally a reviewer, but wanted to highlight this to the Edge/Future Mag. I’ve been collecting Edge since the 90s, during the days of Sega Dreamcast.
I have subscribed to the digital version for 3yrs now and of recent did not read the 2017 issues due to my iPad mini 2 screen cracking. Recently I had picked up the iPad mini 4 and going back to reading the back issues especially connecting the articles based on the games I have played on my PS4, FFXV, Horizon Zero Dawn and many reviewed on these back issues.
I was very surprised to see the interactivity of the digital print disappearing. The e-mag is now just a plain old side to side kindle page turner, as suppose to the bench mark of what a great e-mag was supposed to be and why I was blown away and transition to digital version 3 years back.
Where were the little pop up comments, supposed vertical scrolling to the page, enjoyable small animations. All I see in recent issues are a button on gallery and a video. The UX of the e-mag has tunes bland, whilst the article is still top notch, it is now different from reading an article on a webpage, with the additional zoom in and out for the text on a iPad.
I hope to see the interactive design come back in 2018, to what makes this digital version, where I once benchmark all digital mag to what is should be.
So disappointing, and still no update
Going from a fantastic interactive magazine to this is devastating. A huge step backwards on all accounts. Once a great example of how digital literature should be done, now has downgraded all selling points to a that'll do standard. If we wanted what is now being given we'd of gone for a printed subscription as edge magazine has always out shined others on quality and attention to detail, even down to the quality of the paper. This new version lacks any of this. Just pdf's of what is printed, lazy work from future publishing.
Content from the writers is still second to none, but execution on delivery is abysmal in comparison to previous versions.
Damaging to the brand of what is an extremely well respected magazine.
6 Months on from writing this review nothing has changed.. sad to see the readers are not being listened too.. with a heavy heart I am cancelling my subscription and switching back to physical copies. Such a shame as loved having all my copies in one place without taking up space and prior editions having the class to impress friends with what the future of the medium looks like. Looks like this goal to innovate what literature is to become has been abandoned as well as its readers.
