So frustrating

As an avid reader/subscriber of Macworld for 20+ years this recent evolution to the digital sphere has been abominable. You would think that such a magazine discussing evolutionary Apple products would have perfected the transportation highway from print to digital. Gaining access to my paid subscription on an iPad is difficult if not a complete failure. Further, I would prefer reading the magazine that is stored on some other server rather than being forced to download onto my devise taking valuable memory space. I do not recommend those interested in subscribing to Macworld to undertake this arduous task at the moment. I hope you are listening Customer Relations and taking these numerous complaints NOT to your boss but to the OWNERS of this magazine for their needed actions. I would prefer returning to the print edition style and pay a bit more for an annual subscription than to go through all of this. Please fix these problems or simply go out of business and let some other company succeed where you have fallen down.

Very Disappointing Implementation

It’s tough to assign a star rating to Macworld. On the one hand, it’s, well, Macworld. The content, writing, and editing ranges from above average to excellent. But the implementation of the iPad app that delivers that content is a disaster. Every page contains a popup ad at the bottom right that covers text of the article, and there is no way to get rid of it. So, if you want to read an article, just know that you will never see the final paragraph. Navigation between articles, and even pages of articles, is so difficult that it’s often easier to close the app and reopen it to move to another article. C’mob Macworld, you’re better than this. For a publication that pulls no punches (e.g., as I write this, there is a current article saying, “iTunes 12.2 is a disaster”), it would be nice to see you getting your own house in order before asking users to believe you criticism of someone else's.

Macworld is evolving.

Although I am a longtime reader of the print version of Macworld, I understand why they need to change to a digital only format. Change or die, right?
Further, I love most of the aesthetic changes in the most recent update although I do have a few suggestions.
I am no longer able to continue my reading where I last left off. Every time I go back into the magazine, I am forced to pick the issue I want to read (again) and find my place in the magazine (again). A real pain.
The log in/subscription portion of the app and interface looks and feels terribly outdated and cumbersome.
Lastly, the upgrade process from the former version was very kludgy. My guess is that this is due to sticking with the outdated log in/subscription interface (see prior paragraph).
Keep moving forward Macword Digital. The haters will come along… eventually!
