Writers Forum

This may or may not be a good app -- I can't get the damned thing to work to find out. Extremely frustrating process so far, with little support from the 'App Support' function. I bought the app expecting it to be a simple process to download the one eZine included in the app price but this has proved impossible. Having paid my money I cannot download anything, because it keeps crashing. I have tried setting up a pocket age account ( something which is not mentioned in the original Writers Forum app description) but even this seemed to make no difference. When I log into this pocketmags account I am prompted to pay again to download the Writers Forum mag. So far I am £1.79 out of pocket, extremely annoyed at the lack of logical explanation for any of this, and have wasted an hour of my life I can not get back. I am not a tech-phobe, I work in telecoms, and so if I find this awkward and non-friendly then I expect others will too.


It works well for me

On first run it closed unexpectedly. After re-opening I was able to download the complimentary issue and three previous issues with no problems whatsoever. On opening the first issue there are a series of interesting show off graphics. All very impressive and very smoothly done. I have not had a repeat of the initial premature closure. Page turning was very smooth. Enhancements for the future would helpfully include navigation to any part of the magazine from the contents page, directly. The ipad is such a good platform for this magazine, the pair complement each other well.


Worth it

The purchase of the app entitles you to download one issue of the magazine. Additional single issues can be purchased or you can subscribe to receive regular issues when published. I was not sure what to expect from the magazine but I found the content to be very informative and useful for developing my writing skills. This is the best writing magazine I've come across and cheaper to buy this way than fork out £3.60 for the printed version in the shops.
