What's New in Version 0.0.7
Works well enough
I decided to make the switch from paper to digital and the app is a mixed bag. Problems I have with the app is that the digital version does not have the same layout as the print and is formatted to be viewed in landscape mode, with no option to view content in portrait mode. Also, there is no support for iPhone and the downloads are huge, about 400mb. However, a nice feature is that you have access to the back issues and the digital layout of each page is pretty good. Technically, I haven't had any problems other reviewers are having. No abnormal crashes, issues download completely, and switching between issues is fast and simple.
Game Informer is the very best video game magazine and their website is also fantastic. the digital edition of their magazine is definitely worth getting over the actual print version, simply because it has more content that is just not possible on print like video reviews, previews and trailers. I was skeptical about trying out the digital version at first, simply because I thought the print version was good enough, but now I couldn't go back to print. There is just more content going digital.
Seriously needs work
For a company that touts its 22-year publishing credentials, you'd think that more effort would be put into ironing out some of the hideous bugs in its iPad app which has been frustrating to use since day one. It's pure luck of the draw that seems to govern whether a download will successfully complete or not, and the pause/resume fails more often than it works. I was also annoyed to discover that after letting my subscription lapse, the issues I had previously downloaded and paid for (including ones actually on my device) were no longer accessible. All this is a crying shame because the design and layout of the magazine itself is great.
