Customer Reviews

Must have magazine for the science enthusiast

Great depth and scope of articles, up to date news, and explained in terms a novice in any field could understand. Great for staying up to date with the scientific community.

Needs better UI/UX

I love the content, it's great. My problem is with the app, not the quality of the articles. The app is functional, but needs UI improvements and iPhone 6/6 Plus support.

Great magazine, terrible distributor

I've been reading New Scientist for over a decade. Digital distribution through Zinio was bad, the Reed Publications dedicated app is far worse. The app kept forgetting I was a subscriber, renewals shorted my subscription by a few weeks shy of a year repeatedly. My subscription expiration was confused with a gift subscription I gave, The app finbaly refused to allow me to register (the day I renewed), as did the website.

Reed Publications tech support promised to extend my subscription by a few weeks to make up to me the hours of frustration,dozens of hours on hold and numerous conversations having to explain my situation from scratch- instead they set the end date for my subscription a year short. You can't make this stuff up.

It took several days of phone calls to finally iron it out, but the jig is up for this awful company.

A magazine this good doesn't deserve to be distributed by an organization this bad.
