Combining product reviews, valuable tips, and analysis of the latest news developments, every month Macworld magazine provides you with what you need to know about the universe of Apple products.

If it was possible...
If it was possible, I would rate this app with negative stars. Very possibly, the most confusing and subscriber unfriendly thing that I was exposed to doing the last calendar year. Even though I am a subscriber, this application charged my account for the December issue and I have not received any response back from my complaint to MacWorld. Apparently, I was supposed to know how to log in to their application, despite the fact that I had not read their email indicating all of the changes that took place. I get about 100 emails a day. I regularly/weekly read this magazine. This was a highly non-intuitive process for existing subscribers because, even after I read the email, it was a confusing process. It is too bad, because the Macworld Magazine staff deserves a better app interface particularly since this new one is worse than what it replaced.
After two days of trying to login and carefully reading the lengthy email instructions sent out from Macworld, I'm finally logged in. However, the new format is terrible. It's basically the same as a plain old PDF reader. If you change it to reader mode, it looks awful but hey, you can make the text bigger!! It's a sad state of affairs for Macworld when the only magazine left standing dedicated to Apple can't deliver on a true digital experience. The old version constantly lost my place but at least it was better. Please fix. And fix the ridiculous login issues.
Why are magazine apps generally bad and this one even worse?
I do not understand why magazine apps are so bad. Whether in managing the subscription or in the interface, they are all frustrating, clumsy, non intuitive and wildly inconsistent. MacWorld truly fails and sets a new low bar for this generally terrible app domain because it seems impossible to get to my subscription. My help request from Dec 24 just got an answer on Jan 4. How is that for prompt service?
