Not a patch on PC Answers
Bought this just as the changeover came about - I was purchasing PC Answers and NOT this.
I do not like it and consider I have been mis-lead!
This app is consistently extremely slow at downloading issues -10-20 mins to complete even with a very fast (30 mBs) wifi connection is typical. But far worse though is that it will not download in the background - the moment you minimise the app it stops downloading. It also forces you to login to your Apple account each time you restart the download and also obliges you to wait until 100% of the mag has downloaded before allowing you access - unlike other mag apps that allow you access shortly after the download starts. Very frustrating and completely inexcusable.
Not just PCs, not just advice
Don't be fooled by the old fashioned name, this is a great magazine about smartphones(as you can see in the screenshot above), gaming, digital cameras, tablets etc. There are reviews, opinion columns, tips and everything you need to know about consumer technology. I used to subscribe to the magazine but I've switched to digital because it's more convenient and cheaper, and the app works fine
UPDATE - Just updated to the latest version (1.1) and the occasional bugs I was seeing before have disappeared, don't know about others but seems very reliable now
