I wanted so bad for this to be worth it. I had a paper subscription for Wheels however I let it expire to wait for the digital version. I'm not disappointed by the price, however there is absolutely no 'WOW' factor with this. It really is a glorified PDF version of the mag. If an image is split across two pages you either view one page at a time in portrait mode and have to flick to the other page to see the other half of the image or see the while lot, in tiny unreadable writing, in landscape mode. On top of this, why not make the pages come to life with videos and interaction? It still has the Viewa logo i have to scan, why not make this a link I can click and launch the video automatically? Come on guys, this is basic stuff. Needs to be a better experience then a magazine.
Thick as...... Six months of complaints about the cost of this product has had no effect on the price. Clearly the publishers of this mag either do not read these comments or as so many other hard publishers(and retailers)are, have thier heads stuck in the sand. I suspect that it is a Mexican standoff but the consumer will prevail eventually. Suck it up guys and get your act together.
Wheels $70, Automobile $9.44 per YEAR. #FAIL Wheels is now owned by the GERMAN Bauer Group. Look it up on Wikipedia. So it's not even friggin Australian any more!!! No wonder they rip us off for a PDF scan and don't care one bit about these comments. All Wheels seems to do is pat themselves on the back. Well sadly, you're not getting my money.
Expensive I still have another year on my hard copy issues and I'm only paying $69 for TWO years delivered to my door. How can you justify $7 when your hard copy is $9. Looks like your ex editor got out just in time.
Worth every dollar I see a lot of gripes here about "glorified pdfs" and outrageous subscription prices. For $45 a year I get to read and support quality Australian car journalism, and it's a magazine so I'm not sure what people are expecting from the digital version. Some overseas mag might be a fraction of the price but it's overseas, it's not relevant to me. Considering how our car industry has now died I would have hoped people would be a little more interested in keeping local car journalism alive a little while longer.
How much? That price is ridiculous. Someone really dropped the ball when comparing the market. But then not fixing it shows a company that isn't willing to cater to the consumer. Guess I will look for other options.
