Customer Reviews

Love it so much!

As the mother/step-mother of 3 very unique individuals, life is never dull. Two of the children are incredibly resourceful & self-sufficient. The third (and oldest) either forgets that he has a project altogether or just doesn't care. Getting this child to do anything is the most stressful thing in my life. The battles span the gamut from his wearing deodorant to washing the sheets I purchased for him 5 months ago (and he hasn't laundered them not even once).

THIS, my friends, is where Real Simple comes into the picture. Aided by the fantastic articles, checklists, demonstrative photography, plus the handy take-along apps, I am never without the calming influence that is Real Simple.

While one very small corner of my life is in total chaos, thanks to Real Simple, the important parts of my family's life is fresh, comfortable and organized...all thanks to Real Simple.

Great portability of an excellent magazine with few glitches

I love Real Simple magazine. Being a collector (subscriber) of various Home,Garden, Fashion, Photography, Architecture, Financial, and Travel magazines - I have often said if I had to pare down my subscriptions - Real Simple would be my first choice to keep.
That being said, availability of an e subscription made it easy to keep the issues I love without the clutter. Downloading an issue was fairly easy - removing an issue was a little trickier as even tapping the issue for selection to delete would open it.
Most of the links to websites for items in the magazine worked flawlessly (even links within those websites that were opened) and navigation back to the magazine was a breeze.
Color quality of pages was almost perfect - had a slight "washed" quality to my eye (compared with other e versions of magazine that I have).
Type size was reasonable for reading - and zoom was easy.
All in all It was good - with one star deducted for pains in deleting issue, slight fuzz on colors, and glitchy website links (I am picky about my 5 star rating).

Great magazine...minor complaint

Love this magazine. Great content and the digital version is done really well. It feels special and isn't just a scanned copy of the print magazine.

Minor complaint...The Real Simple icon that appears in the Newstand shelf has been the special Wedding issue for SEVERAL months. I'd prefer to see the cover of the current issue, so I can see the newness. Seeing the Wedding cover feels SOO stale - especially since I'm not planning on getting married any time soon.
