Practical Classics has a 30-year tradition of delivering the very best, hands-on classic car experiences to its readers.

Every staff writer and contributor works on and restores their own classics, and each issue is packed with rigorous buying advice, real-world product tests, inspirational classic driving features and fascinating historical insight.

Practical Classics is also a campaigning title, taking the concerns of classic car owners to Parliament and keeping its readers' classics where they belong - on the road.

Excellent magazine, poor app

The magazine is excellent, however I still prefer the paper version. What really bugs me is that instead of picking up the magazine and reading I have to open the app, then wait (and wait) while an ad for the publisher appears. Then wait some more until the ad fades. The app then takes me to their store. Finally, I press my magazines in order to read.

I usually just buy the paper copy and save myself the bother.

In-app purchases don't work w/iTunes

Good magazine and content but, while app offers additional, one-off editions for sale, it won't let me purchase them. I suspect it's because I subscribed through iTunes instead of the Great Magazines website but in a well written app, that wouldn't matter.

Also, for a zine with this much content, the app should be searchable, like a PDF.
