A good start but... Like others have said, it's the rework of the paper version without the ipad extras. I've cancelled and gone back to the dead tree edition for now. I do like the 'text' version method though. Given the paper deals out there and also the fact that another year has passed with ZERO progress on Android, I'm downrating this to 2 stars. This is a tech/business magazine and it fails to acknowledge that large-scale penetration of business by mobility will be on Android due to cost and device management capabilities.
Strenuous This magazine is a chore to read on this device. There is little interactivity, which would be useful for skipping to interesting articles with ease. The pages also seem to stock every three swipes back or forth and you need to trap the screen (opening options) to rectify this problem constantly.
Why the discrimination against Android users? I'm a print subscriber, 'fooled' by the claim that I would get the digital addition free, only to find that in the UK I can only get a digital addition on an ipad. I don't have and don't want the inferior IOS tablet I do have a perfectly capable Android tablet and quite frankly I don't expect to pay to get the tablet version. Currently exploring the possibility of taking action for misrepresentation!
12 months on and still no digital sub? My iPad is the kids' toy so I can't/refuse to use that. Why do I not get an Android digital sub with my paper sub? 12 months after first asking this question and still no difference.
Doesn't feel complete I like the magazine and have been a subscriber for a few years. I have just switched to the digital version. The adverts were present and over the top in the print version, but they do frustrate more on the digital version. You feel like you are swiping for ages before you get to an article. Another issue is that text mode is only available for some parts. Others, you have to zoom into the page and scroll around to try and read it. Why is it only half done? I was reading in text mode without realising I was missing half the articles. I then had to go back to reread the parts I missed. I like the content, but the digital experience was quite poor.
An interesting read. It is an interesting read; for what is in it thats worth reading. Which, to be honest isn't a lot. You have to go past 4 adverts just to reach the contents page. THen its another few before the first article. The online version should at least feature some extras; such as links going to the webpage. And maybe, the contents linking directly to the page which the story is on. So you don't have to go and trudge your way through immense crap to find something worth reading. Been subscribed for 3 months; have had to unsubscribe. It just isn't worth the £1.99 a month that I pay.
