Ratings and Reviews
Doesn't work in landscape orientation
The images are beautiful, the recipes are pretty diverse, but why would anyone design a cooking app that requires a vertical orientation? Initially looking at the magazine homepage, landscape orientation is an option, but as soon as you download an issue and try to use it, you're forced into a vertical orientation. But I want to prop up my iPad on my cover which requires a landscape orientation to stay upright! This is painfully frustrating and clearly a major design flaw.
Also, I find it a challenge to navigate back and forth from various areas on the app. One needs to rub the top of the screen "just so" to get the options like "library" to show up. It's annoying.
Note, I'm using an iPad Pro and paying digital subscriber.
Cool navigation, but missing some features
I'm really impressed with the navigation of the Bon Appetit app. This is the first time that I've actually preferred the tablet version of a magazine to paper! It's fun to page through and easy to get to recipes.
I've been waiting for greater functionality over the last year, but haven't seen a few items that would really add to the experience... there is no way to save or bookmark recipes. On the magazine's website, it allows you to save recipes to Pinterest. Each time I read the magazine, I have to jump to the browser, find the recipe and pin it if I want to save it for future use. I would also be thrilled if I could save recipes to Evernote (like the NYTimes allows).
Subscription Means Nothing
I got a special free year subscription and I was excited to get digital access to all the issues... but you don’t. It only applies to the monthly issues (of which 2 were posted) the others are specials like “thanksgiving” or “party ideas” and that would be awesome except those aren’t included with the subscription! They have to be paid for by issue! So, 50+ issues available to browse in the app and only 4 were accessible with my paid subscription. Useless.
