Great magazine, terrible digital edition I love Pop Mech but I will not renew my digital subscription until I see that it works completely on my Android devices. The interactive content is great when it works, which is rare and I miss a good portion of each issue. Fix the problems and I will renew, otherwise it's back to the (cheaper) print edition. I'd ask for a refund but the Play store seems to strictly enforce "buyer beware." Update : Still missing a lot of content due to yellow buttons that are broken. Some work, most don't on a Nexus 10. Going back to print so I don't know what I'm missing.
Saves Trees! I don't see why everyone is complaining. Complaints should be used for the magazine not working properly not for the price. I enjoy the paper edition as well but with this I can carry it around in my phone which is more convenient. $1.99 a month for stimulating content is nothing to gawk over. Geez! Thank you for going digital!
Good effort I like the magazine so far. I'm glad to see a push towards interactivity, which the play magazine market is sorely lacking right now. All the interactive content works great for me on my Nexus 7, though you can't play any of the videos without being connected to the internet. Would like to have the ability to have it all downloaded for complete offline reading. Also the ability to zoom would be nice, although it's not the end of the world since the majority of the magazine is formatted really well.
best magazine ever. this magazine truly shows the coolest in new age gadgets and electronics; I have loved this magazine since I first saw it when I was 13, it provides easily comprehensible articles for the elderly aswell as the little ones. I am proud to say that this is the best magazine I have ever seen, thank you popular mechanics team for putting so much effort into this magazine. -Ryan from Victoria BC.
Too many broken interactive features I just cancelled my subscription (which was very easy, thanks for Google ) because I was tired of so many of the interactive features not working on my Android device. As often as not, the product review articles would only display the first page/item because the buttons/icons/etc. meant to take you to the next page/item wouldn't work. I would gladly subscribe again if Popular Mechanics either fixes the problems with the interactive edition or offers a non-interactive version.
Best Magazine on Android! I don't understand why people are giving such bad reviews. This is the only magazine so far that's actually designed for widescreen Android tablets, like my Transformer, and it's awesome! The interactive content is also great, and includes videos and animations that really improve the experience. The only problem is the performance isn't buttery smooth, but it's still functional. This is the best magazine available on Android, because it has great content, is designed for the tablet, and has nice interactive features. You should definitely consider subscribing.
