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.
This app is awful since last month’s update.
IT CANNOT SAVE YOUR PLACE. IT IS A MAGAZINE APP!
Every time you restart the app, i.e. every time you want to read a magazine, you are back at the cover, with its stupid animation. Then you have to swipe to the first page, and go to bookmarks (be sure to bookmark a page when you’re done!) and then go to your place.
Which, of course, isn’t your place, because each article is a set of vertical pages. And the bookmark only records the top page of each article.
So, when I want to read an article where I was the previous day, here’s what I do.
1) Tap newsstand icon
2) Tap Macworld magazine inside icon
3) Tap latest issue
4) Swipe cover to first page
5) Wait a second or two for first page to display - you need to do this for the bookmarks menu to be available
6) Tap bookmarks icon
7) Select your most recent bookmark
8) From that page, manually swipe down 3 or 4 pages (I forget, I was falling asleep when I put the iPad down), and try and resume reading where I left off.
But this is better than paper I guess. So glad they canned their entire staff and came up with this gem of an implementation.
FWIW, the previous update was better; it at least saved your place, saving about 4 steps and 20 seconds of startup time over this version.
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!
