Ratings and Reviews

Not good


First, understand that reviews older than 2017, apply to the previous app which was excellent!

Automobile is a premium magazine. The previous app was a premium app. This is comparable to a pdf, with the added disadvantage that you have to put up with banner ads telling you to subscribe even though you have been a subscriber for over 20 years.

You, also, have to put up with deleting the app multiple times a year in order to “fix” a problem the developer cannot otherwise resolve. This might be days or weeks after a magazine is found to be unreadable.

Of course, while the previous app let you access any magazine going back many years, this one gives you around a years worth, no matter how long a subscriber.

Sad, very sad, but I doubt the new publisher will change their decision, despite the need for a good digital product as people continue to move away from print. False economy!

I read it less now because of the frustrations, especially the deleting, reinstalling and downloading the magazines, repeatedly required. At this writing, most lately required to read the March 2018 edition.

My subscription, initiated when David E. Davis Jr. created the magazine, will end soon, and this time will not be renewed.

Perhaps this detailed review will create a response more appropriate than the “tell us what’s wrong and we’ll help you ‘fix’ it”, again, and again, and again..................................

No haters please


Not sure where all the crying is coming from because this is an excellent app. For those complaining about price, three things. I just signed up for the print version for two years, $18 and comes with the iPad version. Secondly, if you only get the iPad version there are like four ads per issue, hence the $20 price tag. I like how people are naming the price they think is acceptable, like they work at a magazine and have some idea of how much time and effort it takes to put out an issue. Lame. And thirdly, upon signing into my iPad automobile account, I was presented with the option of downloading the past 6 months'(!) issues at no extra charge. Value for money? I think that's a big check.
About the app itself, its beautiful. There are tons of little extras like video, beautiful full screen pictures, and facts that are there if you want and gone if you don't. The best integration of print to iPad though is Robert Cumberfords's grumpy design analysis. Tap on a description and the specific area he's talking (complaining) about is highlighted. Very very cool. Also, the app downloads each story as you read them so the wait time to view an issue is measured in seconds. Very smart.
The only downside i can see is that the issues are a bit big so ill have to eventually delete some off my hard drive. Overall a very very good app. Thank you Automobile!

nicely done


The low reviews for the pricing are not fair to the APP. It's free for magazine subscribers. The account-creation for exising subscribers is a little wonky, but try this: put in your 5 digit zipcode first (without the +4 digits), then go up to account number, then submit. it worked for me and I am now reading current and older issues. Also, it sends a confirmation email to the email associated with your subscription, then you have to open the confirmation email to complete the process (of creating a username/password for the app). I did it all in a few minutes (but I had my subscription reminder complete with my account number in front of me, so that helped). Also, I received the confirmation email on my ipad, so that helped even more. 2 clicks later I was reading this months issue.

The ability to see high res full screen images is a huge plus. Pictures that are little thumbnails in the print magazine are full screen hi res shots. Also the ability to scan through all the available pictures is a really good feature, I thought.

Overall, a good conversion of a print mag to ipad. Don't knock down the rating because of Apples magazine pricing requirements. The paper mag is about $15/year and they give you the app for free. A good deal in my book.
