Like the new version
I like the new one and it is deeper than apple news for many things. However, it is shallow in breadth of content since it only has mainstream set of interests from their magazines. I do like the deeper content though, magazines tend to have real articles rather than blog entries. I still love love blogs for news, but it's hard to go deep on them.
It seems they are also doing a better job of showing articles I might like to read. However, it does not seem personalized yet in those suggestions. The magazines I have starred are of interest and should be used to guide those article suggestions. There is not much in Cosmo or vogue that I would ever read, so don't show me articles from them. I presume it will get more personalized as they watch what articles I read.
I also would like more specialized magazines, but I am not sure these guys own them anymore. Perhaps go find those niche publishers and get them on board. Some of the other magazine apps out there are terrible.
I like that I don't have to download or favorite a magazine that has an new and noteworthy article in it, just because I want to read about Elon musk, does not mean I want to subscribe to vogue.
I just hope the magazines get more flexible in orientation, I don't like having to turn my iPad for some magazines and not for others. Aren'tthey all using the same publishing engine?
Quality content, enjoyable reading
This is quickly becoming one of my favorite apps. I like the slick new look and awesome new curated collections of articles. I hope they continue to be curated smartly.
This app almost seems too good to be true. One monthly fee and you have unlimited access to all the great magazines. I'm giving it a try and, it actually works great. The digital magazines are high quality and have lots of interactive content. Typically I would just limit myself to a few magazine subscriptions, but now I have full access to whatever I feel like reading, so I'm kind of a kid in a candy store.
The new name and new app are both worse
Next Issue is now known as Texture. With that name change come a bunch of features that you don't want or care about, which serve only to make magazine reading more cumbersome. You'll also get a few new bugs and slightly slower performance as additional "benefits" of this latest upgrade. The good news is that you can't see too many magazine covers on the screen at once, since Texture insists on showing you article previews everywhere you go in the app. God forbid you get to see more than one row of magazine covers on a single screen! While Texture's app designers have been busy inventing junk you're not going to use they haven't bothered to fix ANY of the problems that have been plaguing the app since its launch: slow downloads, lack of background downloads, etc.
