Ratings and Reviews

Magazines as they should be


£2.99 for this magazine!!!!!! From where I am sitting this is an absolute bargain - that said I think the price point is exactly right, and I would like to see all magazines at around this price point - not up to the £5 mark!!!!!! We are saving valuable resources by taking the online edition.

Ok, I admit that the features available with an online magazine can easily outweigh those in paper format, live videos, interacting with objects - it really is cool. But then, for the first time in my Life i am actually taken by the adverts. This medium is seriously going to open up some great creative advertising. Interacting with adverts - seeing the new Mercedes Benz video advert within the advert, clicking a link to take me directly to the buy one get one free clothes offer advertised!!! It rocks. Companies should really get in on the act now, and i hope that the magazines get more from the advertisers to keep this medium cheap for us. I will never pay more for an online subscription than getting a hard copy and I hope these companies take note.

Look forward to the next issue!

Very little improvement since June...


Slow and cumbersome downloads - June edition was over 500MBs and July is still over 300MBs... this is way too big for a digital magazine download. Supposing we continue to buy the magazine for a year then we'll have maxed out close to 5GBs of our iPad storage just for a single magazine app!... surely this can't be the future of the publishing industry? Considering the sheer number of advertising spots in theses editions too the per-issue price should be much lower than $3.99. I hope Wired are paying attention to these negative reviews because they're more or less spot-on. If August continues like this then I won't be buying again. There's still no indication of a continuation page to each article so readers constantly feel as though they're navigation is all over the place. No zoom, no selectable text, no way to make notes or add bookmarks for future referencing... ie the whole Wired App experience is counter-intuitive to what we've come to appreciate with the iPad. Flattened PNGs via the Adobe InDesign compiler makes for a dreadful digital magazine experience. Also as others have noted below... you have to re-download the previous edition which will burn up another 500MB of your bandwidth. Shameful that a business like Wired could have put out such a shoddy and ill-concevived App.

bad purchasing experience


I downloaded the free app a week ago and checked the preview issue.
Even after reading some criticisms regarding the size of the issues and the awkward double purchases required if the application was updated, I wanted to check a real issue, so I tried to download August 2010 issue.
It could probably be more frustrating, but it was frustrating enough already. I tried to download the application dozens of times just to get a "regrant failed" message. "Regrant"? It was the first time I was downloading it!
In the end I needed to completely uninstall the app, just to redownload and reinstall it, in order to get the August issue, which was supposedly already available through the version of the app I had installed.
I'm not sure if I will buy more issues, it depends on the "regrant experience" (when I read the issue, delete it from the iPad and try to buy it again). I expect having access to the whole library of mags I buy, but the comments are not very reassuring about this point.
