MAD Magazine (Cheap!)

By DC Entertainment

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


The MAD Magazine app offers all of the humor, stupidity and satire of the magazine – with none of the looming threat of paper cuts! Once you download the FREE (Cheap!) app, you’ll have special access to classic MAD articles, plus you’ll be able to buy the newest issue, catch up on back issues, or subscribe (so you’ll never know the heartbreak of missing an issue again)! Each issue of MAD features new, cutting edge parodies of pop culture, movie and TV shows, politics, sports and more – as well as classic MAD features like Al Jaffee’s Fold-In, Sergio Aragaonés’ “A MAD Look At…”, and Spy vs. Spy. You’ll also get new features like The MAD Strip Club, The Fundalini Pages, and Planet Tad. The MAD app: There’s no better way to tell the world, “I have an iPad and I’m not afraid to squander its potential!”

Customer Reviews

Ironically, this app is a joke

Mad magazine is a pretty good publication, which is why it saddens me to see such a poorly thought-out app. For starters, even parts of the help screen are obscured, hidden by the rubber banding behavior. Then there are the subscriptions, which are listed in the store section, looking just like any other magazine with the exception of the title being "subscription" instead of a magazine title. It took me 5 minutes to realize where they were. The app also comes with a preview issue, but unlike most newsstand apps where the preview is the first thing you see, it is stuffed under the my issues section. The magazines themselves are pretty good, but the app consistently fails to hold my place, with it jettisoning me back to the cover more often than not.


The Obama dog issue, designed for iPad, goes grey, indicating you can turn it sideways. It doesn't work and tapping the screen doesn't allow the issues selection to pop up. So I can't get to any of my purchases. About $35 dollars down the drain...or complete reinstallation and the high cost of all the megabytes downloaded again. :( booooo!

What is going on

The app is not working at all can someone please fix this,I can't download any of my back issues I purchased and my subscription doesn't even show.
