Customer Reviews

Gesture controls are maddening

Forbes. I love this magazine and content. However, the digital content via app is difficult to navigate because the interface is too unwieldy and clumsy, in my opinion. I am sure this will improve over time.
Overall, I love having these issues on my iPad for when I'm traveling or on the sofa.
Unfortunately, like Fortune Magazine, even you are an active subscriber, back issues (before the subscription start date) must be purchased a la carte, and the $5.99 price seems pretty unreasonable.

Unreliable but good when it works

As a frequent flyer, i like reading Forbes offline. Like the download % complete you added, but the lack of dependable behavior unlocking content is maddening.

I have an apple subscription to forbes, but app frequently forgets this and shows me preview. Restoring purchases tells me it has failed and to write to support but then works....

Love the convenience of readings mags on ipad but lack of reliable delivery means is maddening

Stuck in share

Accidentally hit the share button on an article and there is no way to back out. The app is frozen. Also, can't jump from table of contents directly to an article. Pretty clunky app, even if the content is worth reading.

The app freezes or crashes several times in a one hour period while reading. Pity. I like the content (ex Steve Forbes' inane editorials).
