Truly unique among magazine apps, the Forbes app acts as your gateway to the ultimate Forbes experience by combining the power of the print magazine with the dynamic and content-rich Web site — all of which is enabled for easy sharing. The app offers the freedom to seamlessly glide between Forbes magazine, Forbes.com, and the social web — to discover, to learn and to share what you find interesting, valuable and inspiring with people who are important to you. The Forbes app starts with Forbes magazine and its stories about the entrepreneurs and executives who are changing the world; the innovative companies that are changing how businesses work; and strategic insights to help shape your investment strategies. But it goes much farther from there. Throughout each issue you’ll find buttons and links, all of which launch more related content and the opportunity to interact with it. Inside the app issues, you can: Dive deeper into a story by opening related posts on Forbes.com or watching video or digging into our wealth or company lists or viewing photo galleries, and more. Join the real-time conversation around a story by following the link to its comments section on Forbes.com. Connect with a writer by simply pressing a button to access their Twitter, Facebook, or Forbes.com contributor page. Share any content from anywhere inside the app with your social networks: a magazine story, chart, or infographic; content from Forbes.com; ads and content from advertisers’ Web sites, etc. Using a simple two-finger tap, actual images of the content itself are “clipped” and can be sent directly to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Pinterest, or via email or saved to your photo roll. Experience straightforward navigation and a completely integrated environment that allows you to move clearly through the latest issue of Forbes and Forbes.com without ever leaving the app. SUBSCRIPTION OPTIONS The Forbes app is free to download.

Ratings and Reviews
Forbes is smart… But
I’ve been reading Forbes magazine almost 50 years, so they don’t have to sell me on their worthiness. Yet as we often see in business the provider has not tried to buy their own product from themselves.
I have a regular magazine subscription and am having a very difficult time figuring out how to get it digitally-which I think I would now prefer.
So many less popular magazines have this available. One stand out is The Economist which gives you a beautiful digital, and a spectacular audio version to listen to while working out or driving.
Hey Forbes– just copy The Economist digital/audio format.
It has taken a lot of effort for me to get to this point, which is nowhere.
App is not intuitive.
I have had problems for some time with the Forbes app. Tonight it said I had to pay/buy an issue despite a subscription I have. The FAQs suggest restoring purchases and if that does not work to delete and re download the app. Restoring did not work so I deleted and re downloaded. I could not successfully sign in because I must have forgotten my password. The FAQs say to click on "forgot password". There is no such link on the sign on page. Forbes needs a new and better interface. Not a good reflection at all for great magazine content.
If you're a businessman on your way up, Forbes is not just a necessity, it is almost a requirement and prerequisite for your success. The app is very easy to use. Just as the brand itself, it never disappoints. It is always a go to place where you can find the stories of the movers and shakers of modern America.
