What's New in Version 2.7.52
- Bug fixes and performance improvements
A giant step backwards!?
First, the positive: This latest update allows the app to work if you have iOS8. Before this, it would crash every time and you'd have no access to your magazines.
Now, the negative: A few months back, the iPad edition took a giant step backwards and my hopes for a return to that excellent app have been dashed with this latest update. How can TEN decide that going from a terrific version of the magazine for the iPad with landscape formatting, interactive features, full screen slideshows and imbedded video to a version that looks like a PDF copy of the paper mag be a good thing!? I understand that a magazine needs advertising to survive. There's no way $10/year is paying for a magazine's cost. So if that's the problem, I'd be more than happy to have ads in my interactive iPad version. Just bring it back, or risk losing your subscriber base for magazines that do embrace the digital age, starting with me...
UPDATE: A year after the last interactive issue and we're still stuck with an on-screed "PDF" of the paper magazine. I dropped my subscription to Automobile for this reason, and I'm about to drop my Motor Trend subscription and move to Car And Driver which still embraces modern interactive magazines on the iPad. Way to go Source Interlink/TEN.
Love Motor Trend, hate this app
It took me about 12 seconds once I downloaded this app to realize that I don't want it anymore. Now I have to go figure out how to turn off my subscription. Publishers have to realize that the National Geographic app is the gold standard, and any serious Magazine app has to provide equal or better features than NG. I would gladly pay $20/yr for a MT iPad magazine that was more than simply the hardcopy magazine scanned in and showing on my screen. It's pathetic and frustrating. My hardcopy subscription to Motor Trend has lapsed, that's why I was at the App Store and find out if they had a suitable electronic replacement. They don't. So I guess, motor trend won't be getting any of my money until they figure out how to "wow" their audience with a digital product.
Oh, and one more thing- going to the App Store and finding three distinct motor trend apps was another very confusing experience. There should be one app for motor trend, not three. Roll all content into a kick-butt single app.
Disappointing iPhone version
I love this app on the iPad. The magazine looks great and has awesome interactive features.
However, I recently replaced my iPad with an iPhone 6 Plus, and I have to say I'm quite disappointed. The awesome interactive version on the iPad is replaced by what seems to be just a PDF of the print version on iPhone. You have to zoom in to see the text and it's just too static. No videos, no interactivity, just pictures of the print version. National Geographic does fine with both the iPhone and iPad versions of their Newsstand app, including interactive versions on both, so I don't know why Motor Trent can't either. Definitely canceling the yearly digital subscription I've had for years due to the awful reading experience on the iPhone.
