Customer Reviews

Fair, it with limitations

Works mostly as one would expect, with swiping sideways moving to new items, down to continue with a longer piece. The multimedia is mostly useful. The limitation come with saving, sharing and book marking. Bookmarking works, but as usual, only when the issue is loaded, which wouldn't be a problem if one could save or share a page. Doesn't work with Instapaper, my preferred software, and one can't post pages or quotes. I.e. It's not designed well for Social Media, or really the 21st century. Rather, it's a fancy magazine that fits on one's iPad, and can't move or be shared.

Bad app recommendation by AARP

I just tried the CareZone app your last magazine recommended. This app didn't scan one rx bottle, said type in instead. It made you register before you even tried. It's a way for them to get your info and sell it to everyone. I can't believe AARP recommended it. It's the last time I'll use anything recommended by AARP. Too and I can give no stars.

Also, I don't appreciate the constant AARP related advertisements mailed to me all the time. Take a break and really help protect us from identify theft by stopping all the mail.

Good app

This app has great graphics and is easy to use. However, I think it frustrating that AARP makes you download so many apps for their various services. For an organization that gears itself to an older community you would think they might make it more concise for the possibly (not implying here - I said possibly) less tech savvy.
