New issues don't appear on release and take a week or more to pop up in the app. Push notifications are great and all but not when you click and see nothing new.

Awesome magazine, awful app

The magazine is worth every penny. No worries there.

The app is awful. I mean truly awful. Not an ounce or a crumb of effort has been made to present the magazine well. All the effort has gone into bombarding you with a tonne of advertisements and trying to pressurise you into spending more money. The app is one of the ugliest eyesores of an app I have ever seen. Downloads are painfully slow. Just unprofessional and completely amateurish from start to finish.

This is not a criticism of the people who staff Metal Hammer. This is wholly and entirely on the publishers.

This app is awful. I’d give zero stars if I could.

Stick to Readly

I downloaded the Metal Hammer app to try and order a physical copy of the latest edition.
I paid £3.99 and then a download started on my phone! It wasn’t made clear to me at all that i was only buying a download! I wanted, and thought i was purchasing an actual physical real printed copy.

I can’t hand a digital copy to my son, you can’t stick a poster in a download to your wall.

Not impressed at all, if i don’t get a refund, that £3.99 is the last money Metal Hammer will get from me.
