"SHIFT (…) is a (…) magazine with unique (not copied from the website) and inspiring stories about technology, innovation and startups."
The content in this issue of SHIFT may not be copied from websites, but reads as it was written by the marketing departments of the gadget vendors. There are no stories, unless 1-paragraph quotes from people like Netflix' CEO count as a story.
Despite some videos, the only interactivity are links to vendors websites and "buy" buttons. So it's a catalog.
I was also curious because the mag was made with the tools from PRSS, and I have seen some good stuff made with their tools. Not this one. Quote from Boris, cofounder of TNW: "A lot of the digital magazines are similar to carriages with a engine thrown on top." Well, Boris, for the first issue of SHIFT you even missed to put a horse before the carriage.
An AD-magazine, but fun to read.
I enjoyed the first issue of this magazine. It is not as large as I would have hoped, and the products reviewed were really simply "described". There are a few linked music videos that took too long to buffer, and I swiped on to the next page without watching. Nevertheless I read it from cover to cover and got a couple of great gift ideas from it, so it was worth the money for me. The single-issue price is $1.00 more than the quarterly subscription price, and they only put out issues on a quarterly basis, so you can save $1.00 by buying one issue, then let the subscription auto-renew every quarter if you like it, or cancel your subscription if you don't.
1) this first mag is nothing but page after page of gadgets. It doesn't even sound like they have tried them. So basically it's just ads.
2)TNW had music you could listen to, and it was good music . I didn't see that feature on this mag. Disappointed.
3)Navigation is tedious.
4)Did I pay $2.99 for 3 magazines or 2.99 * 3 months . Who knows.
