Ratings and Reviews

Good, but...


I'm a regular Maclean's Magazine Reader. When I bought my New iPad (3rd generation), I decided to activate my subscription. The activation went quickly, and I could download the latest issue. There were no problems downloading the issues, and when a new one was available it was downloaded automatically (no problems again). The magazine was formatted as it is in print. Everything was fine until I started reading... THERE IS NO SUPPORT FOR THE NEW iPad's RETINA DISPLAY. The text looked awful. It wasn't that visible unless you hold the iPad TEN INCHES from your eyes. Maclean's Magazine Crew: Please add support for the Retina Display on the New iPad... And then I'll rate it 5 stars!

The ads ruin it


Switched to a digital subscription thinking this would do the job. Many nice elements however the app is ruined by the overly intrusive ads that seem impossible to exit out of. Latest example was an iPhone 6 ad which was designed to show off the photography of the device. Swiping left and right brought more ad photo examples. The "tap at top for menu" function is disabled. I get that for a second or two but when you are scrambling around for a solid minute trying to get out of the freaking ad it gets more than frustrating. Exited out of the app. Hard closed it, opened it up again to find I am still in the ad. No thanks.

No support!

Andean connection

How do I get any support for problems? My app is not downloading any content. I have a good wifi connection, so the communications link is not the problem. The store does not show any covers, but it does show the issue dates and download buttons. Downloads do not work. I have deleted and reinstalled the app several times with no luck, however it registers my subscription just fine. I have used the app for 3 months with little problem, but this problem showed up this week when attempting to access the new issue.
