Ratings and Reviews

Fantastic improvement


The latest app update makes a big change to reading within the NEO app - at long last, no more clunky page turn transitions! Everything loads faster and more fluidly, and the interface looks great.

My only gripe, and it is a small one, is the yellow tint that everything turns when it can be pressed. It doesn't feel necessary. Other magazine apps survive without that - maybe just an underline if its in a paragraph - but the contents pages are now bathed in a pale yellow, which subtracts from the look of the magazine. Not really necessary, considering its a contents page!

Other than that, a fantastic improvement. Looking forward to seeing what's next!

Excellent magazine


Great fun to read, plenty of great features in every issue. They have regular features including a report from Japan about various topics, a how to draw manga section, extracts from mangas, loads of reviews, features on the latest anime, movies and music, release dates, and loads more! They have every topic covered when it comes to Asian entertainment, whether you're into manga, music, movies or anime!



Not sure why people are complaining about paying for the app.
Once you buy the app you also get a free issue of your choice from their latest collection, meaning your paying for your first issue at a discount price.

Now being able to read the magazine anywhere without having to carry a paper magazine makes my day.
