Review from A Google User
Good overall I've been using this app for a couple of days now, and I love it. The only drawback is that the magazines take awhile to download, but that's not a huge deal. I like the interactivity, such as being able to scroll through screenshots, or that you can view trailers straight from the link on applicable pages. I recommend!
Unable todownload magazines Since new update everytime I try to download an issue it says download failed. Please fix
Where is 0 stars. I have not been able to read a digital copy of my subscription since July. The "PC" version fails to work for both Chrome and Firefox. Can't link to my Google Play Magazine and this piece of garbage "app" won't let me "log in" and the "my account" tab is blank. All it lets me do is pay $5 per issue for something I already have with my Power card. Epicially regret ever switching to digital.
Charging you for the "privilege" of not being able to read the magazine 2/5, would not buy an issue again. If the phone is in power saving mode when the download completes, the app will never register download completion. Ergo, downloads will not work unless the phone is tethered to a PC during the download process. Two stars, because it worked /eventually/, but provided no appreciable information about the issue and - thanks to the notoriously unresponsive menu bar - terrible user experience with actually getting the menu to appear to perform any actions in the app.
Aweful!!! It begins the download process but then gets stuck and never finishes. I haven't been able to read anything yet. Fix this and I will re-rate.
Good, needs some work, but good Good app, little time to get used to it, I use a galaxy tab A and everything downloads fine, and the magazines load without problem. You do have to sign into your gaminformer online account so that they do not charge for the magazines you are due, but once signed in it clears the prices and allows the ability to download.
Clunky menu and touch options It's extremely difficult to navigate through the app by touch. I can't seem to find the motion or touch area to bring up the menu options to change between magazines. Also, the app need an ability store the downloaded magazines the external SD card.
