What you want?

Makes sense to fit a large magazine in an iPad? Depends what you’re looking for, if you want to save space, have 100s of issues on a letter size device, take screenshots, checking studio websites on the run, and read some good stuff here and there; then you have your answer. Enjoy!

Waste of money

Imagine a large-format magazine, normally printed in smaller than usual type, shrunk down to the size of an iPad. Yep. Completely unreadable unless you reverse pinch to zoom it out, then you have to slide the pages left, right, up, and down to read them. Even Zinio offers better options than that.

There's little more here than a PDF version of the magazine itself, locked in a fixed format with no ability to adjust for the size of the device it finds itself in. You'd think a magazine that spends so much of its space writing about working on the web would at least *try* and take advantage of the interactivity possibilities in a tablet, but no, they couldn't be bothered to do more than snap a picture of a magazine page, reduce it by 35% or so, and wave it in front of you.

Utter crap. Complete waste of time and money. I'd have rated this as zero stars, but Apple won't let me go below one.
