Skeptic Magazine

Great articles assessing the truth or falsehood of all kinds of theories and assertions, with the truth being the only guiding light. Articles you’ll find nowhere else.

Great to have the digital version

Since I read nearly everything on my iPad or phone, the digital version of this journal makes reading the it much more accessible. I can easily read it in bed with even with the lamp turned off.

I also appreciate the Reader view feature that turns an article into a single long page for scrolling.

The only most important feature missing for me is a highlighter. When I read non-fiction I always want to annotate what I'm reading for later review. It's great that the app allows for copying and pasting selected text, but a highlighter is also needed.

Can’t access digital subscription

I purchased a digital subscription a couple years ago through Apple, and it clearly shows in my list of Apple Subscriptions. Unfortunately, when I try to read the digital version on my iPad, all I get is stupid Pocket Magazine saying that I need to subscribe. What? I AM subscribed! Very annoying and if this not quickly resolved I will cancel!
