I’ve been wanting to find a magazine like this for months!

Happy to have finally found it. Content is great!

Great content, mediocre app

The magazine is fantastic, and the regular posts are interesting and informative. But the app on iPad, which I feel is the most natural place to expect readers to read the magazine, needs a significant amount of work, both on the design side and the technical side. I think the app should open to the magazine, or have the magazine accessible more immediately - especially on iPad, opening and having to tap through to get to the main reason I downloaded the app isn’t a huge hassle, but is annoying. I imagine most subscribers feel similarly.

My main gripe is that if I open the app in landscape on iPad, it will open in a vertical view - this would be fine, if it did it properly, but instead half the screen is black and the only way I can get it to open with the proper view is to force close the app and reopen with the iPad held vertically.

Like I said at the beginning, I think the content is great and really interesting and I’m happy to subscribe. But the app leaves something to be desired.

An amazing magazine covered Chinese culture stories

I cannot help adoring this magazine, with appealing cover and interior design (how they can create such an amazing design by using Chinese Red color? Please tell me more!) . Each issue can be a collection in my magazine shelve. I really believe that the magazine enable to offer users a wonderful tour in Chinese culture by reading its stories and photographies. Keep tuning pages, I’d like to be infatuated with China Dispatch magazine!
