I was ecstatic when I first heard of Texture. I used to be critical of the service in the past but they seem to have their ducks in a row and provide great service. Great selection! Mental Floss is the ONLY Magazine I enjoy they don't carry. Too many good ones to name. Give it a try you won't be disappointed. My only "complaint" with Texture is there is so much to read you get behind. Always a good problem to have.
As a writer, photographer and marketing consultant I read tons of magazines and books and was subscribing to many of them which I'm going to be unsubscribing to some to cut down on the ones I buy now and will need to store later on. I love Texture it is very easy on the eyes! Brings magazines to life!
I have mixed feelings. Texture functions well. Some magazines, like WIRED are adapted well for use on a tablet. Others, like the new The New Yorker, appear to be identical to print galleys. Those are a real hassle to use. With several long narrow columns of text, I am constantly swiping up and down and left to right. Lotta work.
I'm in the trial period of texture, so it's a good deal right now but I'm not sure if it will be worth it when I have to pay $10-15/month Really don't like the user interface. It's terrible. Magazines are good, but it is hard to switch from online to offline. Many times the cover isn't shown (offline) so I can't tell what I want to read next.
Becoming more and more unstable and laggy with each update. Frequent freezes and hung downloads. The content, however, has improved with the inclusion of more magazines. Only game in town at this point unless you want to depend on the random magazines offered by Amazon prime.
Do NOT use this program, they give you a 3 month trial, but you can't Cancel! You can't cancel or leave them a email because they insist you have a valid email address but none of my email addresses are accepted and my corporate email address is not a valid email address according to their website, so you cannot Cancel your subscription. Very very frustrating!!!!!!!
