Id: ideas & discoveries

This is my favorite magazine and the app works just fine. There is a email contact if you have any problems they will email you asap. I had to contact them because I couldn't login and they explain through email no problem. I get to take all my magazines with me in one small app on my iPad. Thank you!

Need a Kindle or mobile reader format

The info is great, but is impossible to get to because you literally have to move your finger around the page zoom in and out trying to read things. I don't recommend buying an electronic version.

I wrote to ID magazine hoping they would make it right with me. They did not. Very disappointing. Save your money buy the magazine.
