Content is excellent


It's a great magazine. I've not found too many mags on b&w but this is a good one.

The app works well enough. Don't be put off by people saying the app is poor, it's not. It delivers the magazine in good quality and works well. I think some people would like it to do more interactive stuff. And that's a fair request. But it's a request not a fault. This app works ok and delivers the excellent content in a professional way.

What I like about this mag is that it tackles all types of b&w and doesn't just focus on one area. So regardless of if you like portraiture, landscape, street or fine art, you will find something to relate to.

Great to have access but...


Really enjoy quick, easy and inexpensive access to this excellent magazine. However, the app version is just a PDF of the magazine with a few internal hyperlinks. Most external hyperlinks aren't active but, more to the point, no effort has been made to customize the magazine to the tablet. Particularly annoying in this regard is the fact that photos spread across two pages can't be seen as a whole - a break appearing between the pages which splits the photo in two. This is quite unfortunate when the pictures are the main attraction of the mag. It would also be nice to be able to read articles in a format better geared to the iPad, as most newspaper apps allow.


Mohammed the Greek

If you're a b/w photographer and don't know this magazine... SHAME ON YOU. If you do know this magazine, you know how good it is. This app is the magazine, on your iThing. On paper, it's a great mag. On an iPhone (which I use), not so great - difficult to read, slow to turn pages. On an iPad (which I don't have), it would at least be visible, can't speak for the speed.

5/5 for the content, 1/5 for the execution (mostly NOT BWs fault, I will admit - its a limitation of the platform I use). Maybe there's a possibility that the content could be formatted differently for iThing use? Until something changes, I won't be using it again.
