Customer Reviews

Worst in class

Aside from being one of the poorest apps for reading a publication of this sort, the overall reading experience is awful. It's easier to read on a laptop. Anyone who has read the Economist or the Times on an iPad knows the difference. For the price of the subscription, the app should be better--much better. Assign the design to some students.

Worst app ever

Have had to repeatedly download app. Every time there is a problem, customer service's response is to delete and re-download the app and all the magazine issues. Done it maybe 5 different times. Sheer incompetence in every sense - technical and business. They should take some of the advice from the pages of their magazine.

Atrocious user experience. This is not an App!

This is not an app! This is just a crippled proprietary PDF reader, and at best it's just a lame attempt at it...

I was hoping you would bring back the old app with the multimedia features and with the iPad-compatible design grid. Now you have to zoom in, zoom out, and drag around to make the content accessible. There are no links anymore in the Contents page either. It's just a magazine in static PDF format.

Please get design cues from Bloomberg Businessweek, The Economist, Intelligent Life, and others.

Like the magazines above, HBR used to leverage the technology and great user experience of the iPad.
