Mixed bag

The content is awesome and the layouts often make use of being digital instead of just a "PDF in an app" like a lot of these I have tried.

However... the app itself seems buggy. I downloaded an initial mag to check things out and everything worked great. So I went in for a years subscription... two weeks later and I still cannot download the current edition. Have two or three stories that just say "downloading" and on the content screen it looks like I have only 28Mb of 244 downloaded. I have left it open, I have uninstalled and re-installed, deleted and started over all to no avail.

Id rate the Make content at 4-5 stars, the app at 1-2 stars if I could separate this hence the middle road rating. Really hope they fix this.

Great magazine, bad app

I'm a long-time Make subscriber and I recently renewed my paper subscription. I saw the opportunity to add digital content at a modest cost, so why not? I can take Make with me on my iPad and not have to carry the magazine when I travel.

I was able to download the current issue, but every other download fails. "Error connecting to server", and when it does download it only gets a few percent of total and the download fails again. The rate of download is incredibly slow, several minutes for maybe 10% of an issue.

I don't recommend paying for the digital subscription until the app issues are resolved. It's not worth it at this time.

App is Bad. Seems Fixable.

Content Good. App Bad.

I gave this app a low rating because:

1) I bought a 1-year subscription last weekend through the Make: Magazine iPad app. The current issue MAKE 44 did not become available when I paid for the subscription and is still prompting to "Buy Issue". [UPDATE June 20, 2015] the next issue after the date I paid for the subscription, MAKE 45, became available for download when it was released. The waiting time from date I purchased the subscription until the next issue was about 3 or 4 weeks. I suspect I may not be the only one who gets confused about this.

2) Make: Magazine iPad app is not in the iOS News Stand with all other magazines. Instead, it is with other general purpose apps. I hope Make: Magazine will fix this.

Now that the subscription has started, the content is great.
