Ratings and ReviewsSee All
A magazine I subscribe to, "Movie Maker", announced they are now using Pocketmags for digital distribution. So I gave it a try. The app was slow to download my magazine, even at 20 Mbps download speed, and when I switched away to do something else on my iPad, the download paused. So that's not very convenient. And once the magazine downloaded, any article that was white text on black background was unreadable. Bye bye. Now deleting this app.
Once I did finally get my download finished, I found the magazine viewer to be unusable, at least for this publication. This magazine prints some pages as white text on a black background. When viewing the whole page in the app, the text is unreadable. And when I tried to zoom in, all I got was big white rectangles with no visible text. My guess is that there's a design flaw in the app whereby zooming forces a re-render of the screen, but that the re-render assumes a white background. So the text was white on white. Regardless of the cause, the end result is that some articles are completely unreadable.
So I deleted the app and will shortly cancel my account. Then I'll suggest to the magazine that they use some other less buggy and more standard mechanism for digital distribution.
Not Perfect, But Not So Bad
I already subscribe to Majesty, and I have received every issue. The navigation is easy once you figure it out, but it isn't always obvious. I had a subscription to Hello! via Zinio, but they appear to no longer stock it, and in any case, I didn't want every issue, just specific ones that I found of interest. I purchased an issue that I wanted to read and downloaded it. Once it was downloaded, I could leave the app without losing the issue. The search unction is a little buggy, and frequently booted me out of the app. At one point it told me there was no Hello! but I was able to get the past issues page to pop up to browse. I will buy more issues in the future, but a year's subscription is steep when I have no interest in most of the content, so an occasional purchase when I want to read it, seems like a good fit for me. Everything is easy to access because it shows what I have purchased, and I can just click on it. In the past I have noticed that when you subscribe to a a magazine through this app, it will notify you that it is available before it actually can be downloaded and read, but as I now am aware of that, I wait until the next day and then download it.
Crashes on New IPad 3
I received an email promo about PocketMags so I took a chance and downloaded it (running iOS 5.1.1). Once it finished installing I opened the app and clicked on the categories at the top to navigate thru the app... I was pushed out of the app (in other words it crashed) and sent back to my home screen. I tried entering the app and once again it crashed!
I didn't attempt a third time; as you know what they say about doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result... It's the definition of insanity!
I gave just one star because it wouldn't allow me to write a review without grading the app... Don't bother downloading this app. I went to my diagnostics page and it showed me the crash report.
Tri Active Media, if you want me to write a better review about PocketMags make a better app or at least one I can use. Time is money and I've just lost time reading your promo email, installing an app that doesn't operate according to its/your directives and last, explaining the process of what happened in my experience so other eager consumers chomping at the bit to get a quality app that delivers what's promised avoids the apps that are time wasters.
Unfortunately I'm very direct and to the point; don't confuse this as anything less, such as an insult, but merely constructive criticism. I'm deleting the app for now. Please don't send me anymore emails until you get under the hood and turn the proverbial I.T. wrench... Good luck!
