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!
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.
Not worth going digital. With my latest renewal of my GameStop Pro account, the clerk didn't ask and selected digital for my subscription to GameInformer. Finally got around to installing the app, and I have to say it sucks. It forces landscape mode which is just annoying. Also the font size is not adjustable, which is pretty tiny on my Nexus 7 (and know that with some exceptions, the Nexus 7 is about the largest Android tablet). Pretty useless overall. I will be going back to physical next renewal.
Needs work This is one of those, "developers don't like Android fragmentation" situation! The developers made a killer iOS version of this so they're certainly capable, but this Android version is all but failed. It runs on my Pixel C but it's buggy, crashes, low resolution, and has a bunch of test magazines. Do I blame Android or Game Informer? Both are at fault. Here's hoping the fix it for Marshmallow and up users.
Useless Takes a really really long time to download a magazine. Progress of the download will disappear if you switch to another app. Time will tell if it actually downloaded. Not impressed at all. [Update] After 12 hours, no magazines downloaded. It seems that the app has to be active for downloads to work. [Update 2] when the screen turns off the download stops. So its an app to read a magazine that you can't get to. Ridiculous!
Worst ever Such a waste of a subscription. I haven't read one issue since going digital. DONT DO IT!
