Ratings and Reviews

Price of the app a bit too high

Beachie1988

The price of the app for one month is a little high given that there is a lot of value in the hard copies. I still have all my favorite Essence magazines and often loan them out to friends. Many times when I am taking a hot bath, I pull out a pile of my favorite Essence magazines and read an article that I never got to read. So you could say, I was a bit reluctant initially to purchase the app. I think $3.00 would be fair. Then one can realize the bargain of reading the magazine on their electronic device and still buy the hard copy if it turns out to be one of your favorite editions. I am really happy to have the option to purchase the app. Thank you. Finally, I would be remiss if I did not complement the photographers. The pictures are excellent, the women look beautiful and the colors make the edition come alive.

My app has a few kinks

I love Essence magazine in print form so I thought it would be nice to try the digital version. The photos are crisp, clear and vibrant. I love being able to read anytime or anywhere. I also love going back and reading past issues. Which brings me to the cons. When I done download I would prefer the issue to remain in archive form instead of having to download every time I want to read an issue. The other problem I have encountered is accessing or downloading each monthly issue. There seems to be glitches with accessing it. I hope this resolves eventually as I would love to continue being an Essence magazine digital subscriber.

Decent app

I like this app. I've enjoyed the subscription service for more than 2 years and I don't have any major complaints. I am comfortable with the updates made to the effectiveness and functionality. I also like customer service because they respond and make every effort to resolve issues and problems. I was an Ebony subscriber, but I dropped them after continuing problems with their app and their extremely poor customer service. I will continue my subscription as long as the service is positive.
