Ratings and Reviews

Lack of service by Australian publisher

Komputer knerd

Previous subscription to US Popular Science was great until new distribution arrangement in Australia meant that my last year's subscription paid for in advance would not be honoured. Australian publisher should respond to email complaints and negotiate subscription deals for existing subscribers.

did not download - waste of money


The app took over 5 hours to try to download, but couldn't quite get there. I then deleted it from iphone and computer, then downloaded again. This time the picture of the front cover came up quickly but still when I tried to open the app it was just a black blank screen other than the words "Popular Science Australia" at the top.

Emailed Popular Science with my issue and still no reply after 72 hours.
Emailed Apple iTunes and got a reply within 16 hours. They credited me with the money that I had paid. Well done Apple iTunes.

Finally. It actually works. But it is overpriced.


Got the original PopSci eMag and had nothing but problems with it. Downloads not working or taking hours upon hours to download... then failing.

This time around though. It actually works. Been hanging out to read PopSci again (and I refuse to buy a print subscription).

One thing though guys... The price is a little over the top, don't ya think???
