Without prejudice. The app design is for a 3d experience, not the magazine. It steals your info including your bank details. I did not click on the payment option or give it my bank details. After having it in my cell for a week. I see a payment was taken off my account of the same amount it was charging for the experience. Terms & conditions state that as you download the app, you agree to it's terms & conditions, regardless whether you have read them or not.

you will never, ever find a surface thats ok for the app.... nothing happens. :( Ok. It took me a day to get it work. Here"s how to do it, because description says nothing: 1. download google arcore from the appstore 2.run the time app 3. when prompted to scan the surface and this is the key - point to a well lit surface and !!!!!slowly start circling your phone, drawing a circle on the surface!!! 'till moon appears. My original score was one star because the lack of proper instructions, but I modify to 3 stars, because it"s a great experience after all.

Extremely bad user experience. I gave up trying to use this app as nothing worked. Apps should be simple to use and leverage proven technology ensure reliability. I subscribe to Time and just want to read the magazine on my phone or tablet since I'm not always sitting at a computer. Will there be a Time app for just reading the damn magazine that actually works?
