Not worth paying for Been buying MCN in paper for for nearly 20 years, this is my 2nd electronic issue and is a complete waste of time and money. Bought 13 November edition over wifi the day it came out and it was terrible, wouldn't start the download itself, had to keep trying to read it before the download would even start, kept getting told I had to be online even 2 hours after kicking off download, once download was finished 12 pages won't render. Using galaxy note 2 so modern enough phone. Other digital magazines are ok
Sloppy journalism - just read the 12 Aug MCN Issue which I bought for the comparison of the 2015 Adventure Sport bikes. The Ducati Multistrada was inaccurately represented as having no heated grips, semi-active suspension and cruise control in a comparison table on page 19. Later the article compares the Multistrada to the BMW S1000XR and states that although the BMW is not as comfortable as the Ducati and suffers from handlebar vibration at cruising speeds, it does have all the electronic aids and so is better? This despite the Ducati having the same electronics suite and comes in cheaper than the BMW in full spec? MCN, if you are going to compare bikes then do the biking community a solid and fully research them ALL rather than deciding the winner before you've even slung a leg over any of them!
Hard to read, inexcusably slow release of new edition Viewing this mag on my Galaxy Note seems to need a long time to refresh, leaving a pixelated view for extended periods when zooming or a blank screen. This doesn't happen on Zinio. But worst of all the latest edition is 3 days late! I thought the advantage of a digital edition was speed of publication! Sort it out!
I like the MCN content but delivery is painful. The issues all seem to be with Google... I can't store the content on external storage so I can only keep 1 copy at a time on my tablet. Downloading is too slow, viewing is too slow.. I spend more time waiting for a page to load than it actually takes to read it. Sorry MCN but I just cancelled. Find another way to deliver the content.
Review your app like you do a bike - 1/5 Like others have said it can be difficult to read. It will only zoom in so far, when you remove your fingers it bounces back. It's at least readable on my Galaxy Note 8 but considering these have features designed to make text very clear its very blurry.. MCN have missed an opportunity to make a polished app and you only have to look at the ratings to see they failed. Something else , in the digital copy i download it says that if you bought the digital version you can watch a video of the review - you can't.
Late updates Its tricky to read as its not specially formatted for a table so you have to keep scrolling around the page - maybe i'll get used to it (down from 5 to 4 stars for this)? It takes up no physical storage space so I presume I can keep it for ever unlike mags that I end up throwing away and its available when ever I want to read it EXCEPT : its friday and last wednesday's copy isn't here to download yet which is really frustrating!!! So down from 4 to 3 stars
