Love Wired, Hate Google PLAY For whatever reason my phone shows no option for Subscribe and as a print subscriber to Wired I would appreciate if Google got their ish figured out so I could access my free Digital Subscription. There is no Subscribe option no matter where I look. I have LITERALLY looked everywhere.
Really!? This is what I get for $20? A lifeless PDF..... In order to move to different bookmarks it seemed like it was downloading the whole thing so I just went page by page until I got tired of zooming in and out to read the thing. Huge disappointment from my favorite magazine. It's amazing on the iPad, too bad I don't like iOS
Nothing special, but better than nothing Living in Canada it is nice to have a fairly priced edition that I can get as the paper version is 4x more than if you live in the US. But it is fairly bland. You get a full scan and a text version. The scan is terrible and hard to read, the text version works fairly well and skips over all the ads. Basically it is what I wanted as I am mostly interested in the longer articles. I do wish I could read them on my kindle though, as reading on a tablet is not the best experience for longer articles.
Subscriber since 6th ed... Not any more! I've cancelled my subscription and will no longer subscribe to a company that is a) obviously biased against Android & b) run by money grubbers. BTW... my father & uncle are following my lead and have cancelled their subscriptions also. Congratulations Wired, you just lost 3 long term clients!
Great Content, Awful Execution If this review were based on content alone I would give Wired 4 maybe even 5 stars. Unfortunately it's not. Reading the digital issues I often have to reload the page in my browser because articles will not load. Furthermore, I'm allegedly a print subscriber, but I have yet to receive a hard copy or a satisfactory answer to my service requests. Conde Nast is doing a disservice to the writers and readers.
Happy with the digital edition It seems that a large number of the complaints here are those who have a print edition subscription, and want a free digital edition. As somebody that doesn't have the paper edition, and have only purchase this digital edition, I was very happy. The table of contents made it easy to jump around articles. And the "Reading Mode" made the articles simple to read; allowing me to easily getting back to the "Print Mode" to see what the page looked like in the magazine. The only slight annoyance was that all of the pictures / graphics don't show in the "Reading Mode". I sometimes would have to go back to the Print mode to see the graphics.
