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.
Used to be decent This used to be an OK alternative to the physical magazine, but now it is most certainly not. With the newest version, I can't even download an issue to read. Doesn't matter if I stay in the app or close it, no download goes past 0%. Its a download, it should work in the background like it used to...
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.
Won't work with my Samsung Galaxy s7! Give me a break. Irefuse to pay more $ for a real copy. Nor do i want to create the waste. And I haven't been able to read the magazine for over a year now due to incompatibility with my devices. Wtf am I paying you for?
Horrible. I can't use this POS. It's almost as if you wanted to make the worst digital magazine app, and I must say congratulations, you've done it. I really don't understand why it's an either/or deal, w/o the option to receive print with a little digital on the side. I've always felt that GI was such a great magazine that it was a steal for the price. After finally giving in and going digital, I feel like I'm the one being robbed. I'll be switched back to print promptly, or I'll take my business elsewhere. Assholes, you should be ashamed. If you want details, read the other comments. I'm done.
Sticky menu, crashes, doesn't respond to touch , This app is horrible and the worst thing is they make you use it if you want to read your digital subscription if you accidentally switch to digital then if you still want the paper Edition you have to call them and tell them that you accidentally switch to digital only. The menus never pop up when you touch the screen , when you go to download something they just stopped , have really good ideas about interactive touching for purchase and videos and things like that but doesn't mean nothing if the Box you put them in is torn
