Enjoying this app

Love having a way to read the magazines I like without having to carry paper copies of them with me everywhere. I did not have any problem reading the pages once I enlarged it. Looking forward to reading more with this app.

Works great

The Texture app works well on my both my Windows 8.1 Surface RT tablet and Surface Pro 3 tablet/laptop. I love having a huge variety of magazines with me online or offline whenever I have a little time to read.

Like It

I enjoy reading magazines with Texture on both iOS and Windows 10. I lie in an area with limited download speeds so it takes a while for this heavy lifter to load, but the wait is rewarded with excellent content that would cost much more via another delivery method.

Windows 10 PC- app now works for me.

It takes a while to download. 1st screen that came up was a list of magazines and I could not do anything; appeared to be frozen. But I waited 15 min and the screen changed to show larger pics of mags and options: 30 min and it is still downloading. Once you get into a magazine and want to go back to main screen or see additional issues- right mouse click and another menu will appear giving options. Like it so far.

Would have been 5 stars

I like the app because I don't have stacks of magazines all over my house and I can read it anywhere. However, I wish it worked on Windows 10. I like the bigger screen, especially in the mornings.

Useless if not supported in Windows 10

Have used this for about 18 months and is a great way to get access and read a wide variety of magazines. Worked fine after Win10 upgrade. However, since the latest update to Win10, and after Norton upgrade, cannot get access to a magazine. It downloads and then shuts down. Will see how support responds to the trouble ticket. UPDATE: Not supported, it has lost 90% of its usefulness to me by only being supported by my tablets and phone. So sad. Good by Texture.

Slow, doesn't have all features

The app is "OK.". It gets the job done but lacks in the features available on the Android app, and is way behind the development on the IOS app format. Would be great if the app for Microsoft was updated to have all features such as bookmarking and marking a magazine UNREAD and READ. I would hope to see an update coming out in the near future.

Does not work on my Windows 10 laptop

The ap does download but I have no access to the ap commands in either tablet or pc mode. The home screen is shaded as well. Works beautifully on my Kindle but what a waste to not be able to use this on my laptop. Since this is not compatible with Windows 10, please either remove it from your ap store or post that it's not compatible.

Support says this is no longer available on my laptop

I really liked the access to such a great variety of magazines. It is very disappointing this app no longer works on my Asus Windows 10 laptop. According to the Support rep, the current focus is the mobile market and no longer works with pc or laptop. Bummer! Why is this still in my apps choice?

Love \ Hate Relationship

I love the variety of magazines, but.... it sucks. Every new issue download takes no less than 10-15 minutes and typically crashes my Surface in the process. If there were comparable options, I'd dump this faster than you can toss back issues in a recycle bin. Grrrr.
