Customer Reviews

PopSci App is GREAT!

I have read PS for nearly 50 years starting with my father's subscription (both PS and PM). The added content possible with the electronic edition is amazing, as I still get the paper edition as well it is a great contrast. I can see how the digital edition expands on the story and brings more life to it!

Only request would be that I could have my iPad in "landscape mode" or turned horizontal if I choose. Would allow me to see more at one time and other digital magazines I get do this.

Very disappointed

Looked at 3 paper issues.
I've seen more skill & inventiveness in 1927 PM issues than current articles that lend me to believe men now days don't even know how to hammer a nail.
Three PM locations for "create password" the web page buying a digital subscription, then sign in on my I-pad, then change password via e-mail link, ALL have different requirements! One requires a capital letter, another you cannot use a symbol like $, and one min 6 digits, another more didgets! What do you call a mag that can't manage its password requirements!


Love this mag should be where the tabloids are in the grocery stores maybe then people will learn useful info instead of who got plastic surgery lol
