Review from A Google User
Total Garbage Please just give us a download code to get this the digital version in the play store. The app is junk. Maybe it will download the magazine...maybe I'll be able to read the crappy small text. I'm ready to call them back and ask for the printed copy again. What a waste of time.
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.
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
New issues should download automatically New issues should download automatically in background rather than sending an alert telling you that new issue is available. App should also give option to save issues to SD card rather than onboard storage
version 1.9.0 ---- readers can now access issues that have already been downloaded while they are offline.
