Ok but needs improvement

If you bough the subscription on another platform (ie: iOS) seems there's no way to transfer the license. No portrait mode baffles me.

Great mag, easy to read on a tablet and I love having it as soon as it comes out! Don't know what people are going on about in the reviews about it not being free - does a newsagent give away all its magazines for free??? The app is free, not the magazine. Simples.

Very Poor

A free app where you can purchase a subscription. Really!

For a Windows 8 app, you'd expect it to use standard touch features like pinch & zoom. Regular size is too small to read, zoomed is huge and you need to pan around the screen. You'd think you could zoom to the size that works for you... not readable format for me.

How is this app getting 5 stars from people? It looks good but is easily the most awkward tablet based magazine reading experience I've ever had! You get 2 modes for reading - full page and zoomed in. Full page shows 2 full pages and the text is so small that its not readable. Zoomed in mode zooms the pages in so far that one is constantly panning around. And you have to zoom out just to change pages. Unbelievably, you can't view a single page in portrait mode! Ridiculous.

Total garbage

Giving it one star is giving it to many. Constant crashing and exceptionally slow to download the magazine. Every you start the app it connects to the net to download the covers. That is UNSAT. Every article is glowing with praise for Win 8 hardware and totally fails to mention ANY flaws in any of it. Every piece of hardware out today has SOME flaws.

English YES, but England NO

When I purchased my magazines, I had no clue I would be getting the British version of the magazine complete with pricing in pounds and apps specific to the Queens land. Sure the reading is just the same... however.. should I ever see something I want... I would have to do some research on where to find it in the USA.

Can't Receive Latest Magazine

I have enjoyed every magazine until this March issue. I downloads but never extracts. I have uninstalled and reinstalled for nothing. Good thing they have my money.
