Ratings and Reviews

Good Start


I've been reading Trail Magazine in the print version for about 9 months now, initially buying because an article caught my eye. I've since bought every issue though, so I think it's an excellent magazine, I've tried every other walking magazine and for me Trail is the best. I was disappointed not to be able to buy it on Newstand, so it's good to see it is now available. I do realise it's early days but I have one big problem with the app as it stands, that is the level of zoom available. As someone of advancing years with poor eyesight, I have a bit of trouble reading it, even fully zoomed in! As a comparison, take a look at What Mountain Bike, which I have read for years, and subscribed to the Newstand version for a year now. This allows you to easily read text and really zoom in on pictures and maps. Another idea for the future, links from your advertisers to their websites, e-mail links to your letters page, etc. But like I said it's early days, and it's good so far.

Works well as an app


Trail magazine on an iPad works well....almost. Photographs especially are mostly excellent. Magazine content is relatively easy to find and as an add-on to the paper subscription package it works well for us as a family; daughter gets the mag and I get the iPad version which I can read on the move.
Magazine content is well balanced now; good range of articles, equipment reviews and motivational ideas.
Only complaint is that moving around the magazine is extremely clunky and long-winded compared to other publications... no capability to press page numbers and go straight to articles (on my iPad anyway....with other publications I can).

Vectored pages would improve enjoyment!


This is an excellent magazine which is informative and humorous. I also read the paper copy but find the print very small so the digital version is great for enlarging the text and images. However, my enjoyment would be greatly enhanced if the digital pages were vectorised rather than being simple scans, as the text deteriorates and becomes illegible when zoomed. Due to poor eyesight, I rely heavily on being able to enlarge the text and for it to remain legible. Otherwise, it's all good!
