Ratings and Reviews
Excellent information, highly recommended. Apps works excellent
Good App Great Magazine
This app works great. All the people giving bad reviews.. Read the description before you "waste your time downloading it." Really? It's free because these folks don't want to charge us for an app that lets us buy their magazines and/or subscriptions. How can they give away magazines for free? What's wrong with you guys? This app is for people that don't want to go to the bookstore to buy an issue bc it's easier to have on ur idevice. Get real people. Use ur brain b4 you give a great thing a bad reputation. By the way.. I don't in anyway whatsoever work for this company, I am just annoyed by stupid people.
Great mag, horrible app
App takes over 5 min just let me view my purchased magazines. Horrible navigation to find the mag I am looking for. Canceled my subscription.
