MAD Magazine (Cheap!)

By DC Entertainment

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


The MAD Magazine app offers all of the humor, stupidity and satire of the magazine – with none of the looming threat of paper cuts! Once you download the FREE (Cheap!) app, you’ll have special access to classic MAD articles, plus you’ll be able to buy the newest issue, catch up on back issues, or subscribe (so you’ll never know the heartbreak of missing an issue again)! Each issue of MAD features new, cutting edge parodies of pop culture, movie and TV shows, politics, sports and more – as well as classic MAD features like Al Jaffee’s Fold-In, Sergio Aragaonés’ “A MAD Look At…”, and Spy vs. Spy. You’ll also get new features like The MAD Strip Club, The Fundalini Pages, and Planet Tad. The MAD app: There’s no better way to tell the world, “I have an iPad and I’m not afraid to squander its potential!”

Customer Reviews

Great magazine, horrible app.

The app has had issues its entire digital life; missing issues, signing in repeatedly required, general badness in app form. It got better for a while; now, the last two issues have lost the ability to navigate back to the Library, so, once you’ve downloaded and opened an issue, that’s all ya got. You can read that issue, but you can’t get to the main menu, delete the issue, download and read other issues, nuttin’. I love having Mad Magazine on the iPad (my son confiscates my paper copies on arrival), but sadly, due to horrendous app issues, I’m stuck on a desert island alone. Again.

Great mag. Crappy app keeps getting worse.

It used to just be a no-nothing app that at least provided digital copies of a classic mag. Vertical-only format, very limited table of contents to figure out if you wanted to purchase and a limited number of mags to choose from. But now they are offering 99 cent sales on issues I can't even find on the app. And there's no contact link to even tell them there's a problem.

Horrible app

Purchased current issue for $4.99. It wouldn't open so I purchased the bimonthly subscription for $1.99. Still will not open any issues. Now I am out the $6.98 and have no way to retrieve it or cancel future subscription payments. Very mad at Mad Magazine right now.
Zero stars, I had to rate it and one is too many.
