Ratings and Reviews
A worthwhile update. I had problems with the previous version which on more than one occasion froze on me. Each time I had to delete and reinstall then download the complete series. It got worse because it made me pay again for some editions. The update is more stable with no crashes to date. I can purchase a new issue on one device and a 2nd device will recognise the purchase only requiring a 2nd download. A nice touch is read whilst downloading and you then don't have to twiddle your thumbs waiting for the download to complete. In summary an overdue update which enhances the user interface significantly. Well done to the developers.
Why the format change?
Writing magazine was only recently awarded best digital magazine of the year. Why would the developers then decide to change the one thing that made them great? Before developers made use of scrolling and large letters that you could actually read. Now they have replaced that with tap and zoom or some sort of launch article view. This latest update is a mess and really makes me sad. Please reverse this decision. The scrolling feature is what set writing magazine apart from other digital magazines. Please bring it back!
You will not be a full subscriber if you purchase this app
If you just want to read the magazine then great, I can't fault it.
However if you want to enter any competitions then before you subscribe via the app realise that you do not count as a full subscriber and so will be unable to enter subscriber only competitions or be eligible for the subscriber discount.
They say, in small print, on the website:
"please note due to our apps being managed by a third party company, customers are not eligible for Writing Magazine subscriber benefits and offers."
They should have said this on the app description. They should have been up front so people will know what they are getting.
