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.
Was able to login and start downloading my issues fairly easy. My biggest problem with the app is that when I leave the app and try to come back, I get an error message saying that there was a problem with the app. After I hit ok I'm able to get into the app but it happens all the time when trying to go in on the 1st try to open.
It's clunky, unintuitive, and barely works. I managed to read an issue after a lot of struggling to get pages to turn, and now the app is stuck on that issue because the app opens to it after closed, the back button just closes the app entirely, and the menu only gives basic navigation of the issue you are in. Was this app made when smartphones were just becoming viable? The design is horrendous, the functionality is almost non-existent, and the worst part is it seems to be more or less working as intended.
This app was never flawless but I enjoyed reading my fav magazine so I dealt with it. I live in Japan so it was convenient for me. So when Game Informer changed its website, the app no longer worked for me when it was time to renew my subscription. Customer Service was absolutely horrendous!!!! I went back and forth with them and the situation led to me having to pay over $100 for a renewal with international shipping. No thank you!! I have switched to X box Magazine ... much better with less hassle . Update* I live in the U.S. now so the app is downloadable. It's absolutely terrible. One of the most unstable apps I have ever used.
Couldn't even download my digital issues. Press download, shows it starts then just stops. Did it several times and restarted my phone. Guess it doesn't work with my phone model.
After the last update I couldn't ever get to a new issue without uninstalling and then reinstalling. I suggest using Google newsstand. It is much easier. The text wraps better than older versions. Missing features: font size adjustment option, zoom and an intuitive way to move from one magazine to another.
Well it won't let me download my issues. So I think that's the biggest problem. It's pretty so I gave it 2 stars instead of 1.
