Ratings and Reviews

I love this magazine!


This magazine is packed with useful Mac reviews and other cool and interesting articles. A must have for the Mac Addict, and I want to know your graphic designers/creative director, because the cover designs are always eye-popping.

The Best Magazine To Read on an iPad


What an awesome magazine! This is the best magazine I've ever read on an iPad and should be used as the standard of how to make one on an iPad by every other content publisher out there, especially Apple related mags, many of which are very poor transfers of their otherwise excellent print versions. The content of Mac Format takes every advantage there is in creating a magazine for an iPad which makes for full interactive use; text is swipe-able, videos are integrated for watching, as are buttons for accessing related content. As soon as I discovered all this through one of their samples, I immediately signed up for a subscription and moved the app icon to the very beginning of my Newsstand to know where to start first whenever I want to read a Mac mag. Thank you Mac Format team for making an excellent mag app.

If u have a question they have an answer.


I was really surprised to see the vast amounts of information in each issue. I was thinking it would probably be like every other product specific magazine and just praise and glorify everything that Apple does but not so with this publication. If there is a problem issue with a Mac product this Mag will tell you and then tell you the best thing to do fix or go around the problem. Of course, on the other side of the spectrum, they do make issue of the things that are new and worth hearing about that make life a little easier to deal with. My subscription remains on my wish list to my family when it comes time to think of a Christmas, birthday, or Father's Day gift. Keep up the good work!!
