Customer Reviews

Go digital

This is a very well sorted digital mag, great videos and excellent articles, I haven't had any download issues using wifi, but it does take a few minutes. Just one gripe - The paper version is out in newsagents days before the digital version which is intensely frustrating if, like me, you have a digital subscription! so one star dropped for that!


The audio on the video reviews does not work - and the issues take absolutely ages to download even on wifi !

Is this a con?

1) the app support site @ futureplc doesn't work

2) the app store promotes this as a months free trial and then ~£26 per year with £1.49 back issues.

3) the day you finally manage to download the 'free' trial, you get a message saying you've just spent ~£38 and the back issues jump to £2.99??

4) there is no support for this 'issue' with the trial and pricing so i guess ive been a sicker on this one
