Why did they have to leave a working app for a disaster? I'm cancelling my subscription. I had been reluctant to renew since they switched to the ever-changing google, I finally decided to do so and my fears were confirmed. I haven't read a single issue since my renewal. Google play asking for my card details before I can access something i already paid for is ridiculous, and then I'm asked to go through google play and then, No !!, I can't read on google play, now I have to go through newstand and there I can only view 3 pages of the only issue that seems to open, pop ups don't work. I have to go through play store>>magazines>>newstand>> view a whole lot of rubbish magazines I'm not interested in before I can find the TIME mag. Maybe I'm doing something wrong or not going the right way but the TIME app on my galaxy tab was a lot more convenient to use, it was nice and working perfectly. This old app was perfect with a shortcut on my homepage and a library where I could view all my TIME issues at once and select what I wanted. Why did they have to leave a working app for a disaster?
Surprisingly Good Ever alert for quality content for my Nexus 7, I signed up for a whole slew of magazines that offered free trials. Time is one of very few that I'll continue after the trial is over. Although hardly highbrow, the content is nevertheless well worth reading. The feature articles are well-written and intelligent, the digital edition is nicely-designed (not merely a scan of the print version as so many other magazines are), offers interactive content that actually enhances the reading experience, and also includes several worthwhile bonus sections. And the price of the magazine is certainly right too. It seems clear that in this information-saturated, personal-device-dominated web-based era, content producers who want to get people to fork out actual money for their product must offer more than what's available everywhere else for free. In this respect, depth and high journalistic quality are certainly necessary ingredients, and Time (perhaps taking their lead from The Economist) is to be commended for moving in this direction.
I think TiME has always been on the mark for accurate news reporting and fact checking. They have an experienced excellent team of worldwide journalists and they put theyre lives in danger to get the story! My experiences with information I read about the overturning of the SADDAM HUSSIEN regieme was excellent front line information.. and they had an inside hook to OSAMA BIN LADEN and had information that was of value to the US at the time. good magazine and it should be written in a objective standpoint so the reader can draw their own conclusions. Time magazine delievers that.. and its hard to come by in the social media age innudated w propaganda. PAM TOLL PARK FOREST IL JULY 17 2016
The Worst Ever I don't know who field tests this app but it is the worst ever. It simply doesn't work. The iOS version that I used on an iPad was great. I could always download the magazine wherever I was traveling whenever a new issue came out - usually late Thursday night or early Friday morning. Now I can't download an issue at all. I have no idea who to call to help me. I've been reading Time for decades -- till now. My comments have nothing to do with the magazine itself but only with this app. I am NOT a computer neophyte but this app is absolutely terrible. How can anyone get help with this terrible piece of software?
Great content but bad digital copy I used to read Time magazine with its own app. It had a few problems, but they were tolerable. Ever since Time started deliver digital copies with Google Play, the situation has gotten worse. I have seen pages not showing up, pictures getting blocked by another layer, etc. Those problems interrupt normal reading flow and are very annoying.
Pretty Good but some annoying problems I like to read Time through the Google magazine app. However there are a couple of annoying bugs. The most annoying is that sometimes a layer will block the layer below. For example a gallery of thumbnails of photos. If I tap one thumbnail the photo appears *under* the gallery of thumbnails and so 1/2 or more of the underlying photo is obscured by the thumbnails. The app is also sometimes very sensitive to a slight tap which causes it to bring up the "choose a page" overlay. It is sometimes difficult to get the overlay to disappear.
