Plus, we feature products, equipment and supplies that all urbanites should use. Topics covered in the magazine include survival gear, food preparation, medical care, protection, and communications, as well as prepping your home and vehicle.

Great compendium. Needs more interactivity

Very good mag that brings together tons of useful information in an easy to follow format.
Needs workable links and maybe a summary of reviews, to decide which things are best in their categories.
Absolutely stunning photography is a big plus. Wish other magazines, catalogs would have such attention to light and detail.
Would be nice to see more medical articles. Knowledge is more important than gear, though I guess hard to make money on it...

Very good

Updated: I am able to download and read my purchased magazines on multiple devices. My iPad and iPhone.

So far I have really enjoyed the app. I recently stumbled across a more recent, hard copy issue of Offgrid and loved the articles, layout, and photography in it. I wanted to get earlier editions but realized that they are hard to come by and I am not paying $90+ on eBay for early hard copy issues. So I took a chance on this app and downloaded the first issue. No bugs or problems yet. I am using an iPad mini without retina display. I have not upgraded my OS software to 8.0+ Others seem to be having some issues with the latest OS. Most all products listed have hyperlinks to their website which I find very helpful for researching. Easy to navigate. Double tap to zoom, double tap to zoom out to flip the page. Pretty simple. I will most likely download additional issues. Very nicely written magazine.

Good Magazine, Terrible App.

The magazine content is great, but the electronic version is just a static copy of the file sent to the printers to produce the physical magazine. At least the URLs could have been made into hyperlinks. Even better, some interactive content or additional hyper-content would've been nice to add some value over paper media.

Also, purchasing electronic issues of the magazine is just a straight download and doesn't link it to you iCloud account or the AppStore. I bought electronic issues via my iPhone, but now can't read it on my iPad unless I buy it again.

As others have mentioned, why is this a separate app instead of an integrated part of the newsstand? What kind of amateur chose these hacks to put this together for OffGrid? Couldn't they have at least asked Shelley for her advice first?
