Ratings and Reviews

Crashes continually


Unusable crashes continually on my iPad 2.

Excellent but would be nice to see access provided for paper subscribers

Christopher Harvey

It's an excellent app and I'm glad to have finally found my favourite magazine on iPad, but being a subscriber to the physical magazine I'd rather not have to pay for a digital copy too. I have subscriptions to several other magazines that I can download to my iPad for free, hopefully will see this added soon. Otherwise this app is smooth and runs well and a welcome addition to my iPad

Very enjoyable


PFK covers the range of fishkeeping topics really well and is an informative read throughout. I keep tropical and pond fish and, even if a particular issue doesn't include a totally relevant article for my needs, I learn something new every month. Highly recommended.
