Reverse Gear

I understand the need to reintroduce paid-for content, so the low rating in this review in no way reflects the new charges. In fact, I would have happily paid for issues in the format of the old app - not the 'new' app though!

This app has taken what was a reasonably well-designed iPhone-friendly news reading app and thrown it out the window. What we have now is a (barely) glorified PDF reader of the print magazine, not even optimised for the iPhone 6. This means that you have to zoom in to read the text, and end up with images stuck spanning 'pages'. It is in many ways worse than visiting the Auto Express website and viewing the content for free (with Safari's excellent Reader view).

Not only that, but back issues that I had previously downloaded now have a £2.29 fee attached to them (thanks for deleting my content), and the deceitful one-year subscription is more than twice the price of the six-month, which in turn is a penny more than double the three-month - so why would you go for anything other than the shortest period?!

Update is actually a serious downgrade


The latest version of Auto Express is a much worse app than previous versions. Although it is not welcome that the previous model of giving away all but the latest version of the mag has now moved to a chargeable model this is understandable. The worst aspect is the change in format of the mag. Previously the mags were formatted with smart phones and tablets in mind whereas now it is just a clone of the paper version. This makes it difficult to read on a tablet and near impossible to read on a phone without constant zooming and scrolling around a page. The cost model is also a little strange with 2 x 6 months subscription more than 1 x 12 months.

Charge if you must but please go back to previous format.

Not a good update at all.


As others have already said paying for the content is not the issue. I'm more than happy to pay as I usually buy the magazine anyway. The issue is the format of the app. It is horrible on a mobile device. I downloaded it as I thought it would be a lot better than buying the magazine each week. How wrong was I it is just a glorified pdf viewer at the moment. Hard to read and look at the pictures constantly having to zoom in and out. If was the same format as the old app with full magazine content it would have 5stars.
