Navigation Hell It's worth note that the magazine is not optimized in any way for tablet reading; it's a direct copy of the pages. Unfortunately, the magazine is difficult to read on either my Nexus 7 or phone, and there's a few things that I wouldn't consider to be particularly burdensome with a paper medium that are terrible for an electronic copy. For starters, flipping through 100+ pages of advertisements for everything from cigars to suits. Equally irritating is the "Story continued on Page 200" nonsense. The magazine was dirt cheap, which is why I'm giving it two stars. There was a couple good pieces in here, including a love letter of sort to the American sandwich, but the overall experience is seriously lacking.
Boy at his best Esquire had a wonderful history of publishing great fiction that they have now abandoned. Although they still publish some good articles, most of the magazine is filled with advice for 20 somethings who don't know how to grow up. Disappointing...
No free access for print subsribers? Lame. For a magazine that is supposedly on the cutting edge of all things manly, the fact that it's not free for print subscribers really blows chunks. I've already paid through the nose for my 3-year print subscription, it'd be nice to get a little somethin' nice in return.
Great app for fashion advice I have been wearing a Swatch since 1987 and found out via Esquire that these are no longer rad with the ladies. The articles are great and have helped me hone my pickup skillz.
Didn't cast my vote How do these magazines pick the sexiest people alive? Is there a ballot I've never heard of?? I didn't cast my vote. There are SEXIER actors out there! Just because an actor is popular at the time, does not make them the sexiest. Am I the only one who knows what the word sexy means???? My girlfriend, yes I said girlfriend... Is way SEXIER having a bad hair day, during a hail storm, in the pouring rain with make-up running down her face.
Ads, ads everywhere Opened up the free issue with my nexus 7. Needed to go through 21 pages of ads to get to the first piece of content, the table of contents. So this is how print media dies.
