Customer Reviews

Practically useless

Another "unable to download folio"

The most ironic app in the world

Occasionally it works. More often than it should, it shuts me out. Last time I asked for a password reset the email came with "This message has no content". A champion for "consumers" that treats consumers with contempt!

Hate this app

Every month I get a nice email from consumer reports telling me my magazine is ready for downloading. Every month I have to call customer support to get it to work. Unfortunately I renewed my subscription for another 12 months. I'm hoping to change back to a hard copy so I can get this app of my iPad
As far as the magazine goes once you get it downloaded I would give it 2 to 3 stars. It would be nice to zoom in on text but this cannot be done with all the articles. As well there is no landscape feature, so if your iPad stand only works in land scape mode you out of luck.
Have been a big supporter of consumer reports for years but they should review there app against others in newsstand and see how short they come up.
