What's New in Version 4.4
We realised that the library area of the app could sometimes be a bit muddled when looking for a particular issue to read, so we have sorted this out into a logical order at all times.
You can now also complete your collection of back issues from the main store and take advantage of huge savings when you buy the entire collection.
And of course we continue to stamp out pesky bugs and improve your reading experience.
Just plain shabby
A magazine that once set the standard, not just in video gaming mags but for magazine production in general. Progressively that was chipped away, beginning with the resizing of the paper version and the insertion of standard magazine ads that disrupted the astonishing design of those earlier issues. It seemed to redeem itself with the iPad version, though only if you could afford to upgrade your iPad to keep pace with the increasing memory demands that occurred through the life of a subscription. I unsubscribed then I recall because I thought that pretty uncaring. Now I have an iPad Air and there is this great leap backwards into iPad one territory. No prior news. No apology. The magazine has a loyal following. The print in the paper version is too small. In this pdf version it is even worse. I guess we just get sucked into thinking that Apple and Edge are more than just companies after our money but this is also very Apple-like behaviour as anyone who uses a MacBook knows. One minute you have a fully functioning word processor the next you have a iPad app on a laptop! Well, Edge is cancelled and when the MacBook dies I'll go back to the PC.
Used to be fast, pretty and easy to read...
... Now it's just a lazy PDF mag like any other. The previous issues are still shiny but the latest is a slow yucky blurry whilst loading PDF. The content hasn't changed but the experience has been dragged into a darkened alley and shot. Such a shame, I may well just go back to buying the odd print copy rather than being a subscriber.
I hope this is a mistake, Future are you listening?
Used to be great, now just a pile of PDFs.
This isn't a review of the content of the mag, which remains as much of a mixed bag as it always was, but of the app.
It started out as simple PDFs of the print mag, and was a total waste of space. Then something amazing happened, and it became a beautiful digital magazine with appropriate font sizes, giant artwork, lovely transitions, zooms, and interactivity.
Sadly that's all gone now, and it's a PDF again. Subscription cancelled.
