Ratings and Reviews


Barrington Smythe

Good quality editorial content and objective reviews I have come to trust since issue one. The only PC magazine I still subscribe to, having tried pretty much all of them. Mind you, the “CPC Elite” section is getting a bit bloated, and no longer has the handy reference build components bundled together. Probably due a layout/regular content refresh as well

App is rather unambitious for a tech publication, but fine if your main objective is reading a digital version of the mag.

Strange bugs but functional


I have installed this app on my iPad 1 but the icon is a different size to normal iOS icons. Also, if you put the icon in a folder it disappears, which isn't great. The app itself seems to work as it should though. Previous versions have been fine on this device.

Update: It appears this now uses news stand instead of being a stand alone app. Reinstalling and syncing with iTunes fixed the issue. I'm much happier now so I'm going to give Custom PC a better rating.

Quality of app could be better

Happy Rabbit?

It's handy now that I can download my copy of Custom PC and browse it at my leisure but it is very lazy of Dennis Publishing to use the 'Interactive Replica' format (which is basically the equivalent of a scanned copy of the printed magazine) over the 'Interactive Tablet' format which gives gives much clearer and sharper text and images (especially when you zoom in). There is no excuse for this as there is already software on the market that can convert the created magazine pages into an app!
