Ratings and Reviews

Poor Quality App!!


When I first installed the App it would not load past the front screen, it kept crashing. I checked for a solution via the support link and it suggested uninstalling and re-installing which I did. It allowed me to download my not really free mag and set up an account then crashed again. I did the same thing, uninstalled and re-installed the app. How many times will I have to do this before I can read the magazine???? This is one of two apps I have that are powered by Pocketmags and I have the same problem with the other. My advice, if you really want it, buy the paper copy!!!!

Rip Off


First issue downloaded fine, second issue won't download. Money taken. Contacted pocket mags support, they asked for my receipt which I sent and I haven't had any further response in weeks. They are happy to take money but not so happy to provide the product. iTunes 'report a problem' with purchase didn't work either. All round disaster!!!!

Crashes after down load.


I was able to flick through straight after down loading but once closed it hasn't work. It attempts to load for 2 seconds then crashes. Until its fixed don't waste ur time or money. Just buy the shop version.
