I really want to read it, but the app keeps saying “unable to update”

Works for me! Beautiful - Interesting - Entertaining


Thanks so much for this magazine Hipstamatic. Been loving collecting all the lenses and packs over the years and the photo booths as well. As a professional photographer, I have to tell you some of my best pics come from using hipstamatic. Seeing your magazine Snaps makes me so happy. There really is such an interesting community you have built.
There are so many photo apps out there, but yours will always be my favorite. Not only because the output of imagery is so great, but your interface is phenomenal. Your graphics are definitely the thing that sets you so far apart from everyone else. And now that you are translating this into a magazine... Wow! Just wow !! Thank you for everything to date. I love you guys!!

I want to like this...


But it isn't really doing anything for me.

First the app itself

I'm not experiencing the crashes others are reporting, but I do find it highly irritating that if I don't read the mag for a day or so it forgets what page I'm on and I have to search for it again. This has happened three times so far. I'm able to read the mag with no problems otherwise.

I don't understand the layout and design. Why would anybody laying out an iPad publication focused around photography create two page spreads with photos crossing the virtual page gutter? That's just idiotic. I don't want to be constantly flipping my iPad back and forth so I can see the two page spread with the whole photo in landscape mode, and seeing two thirds of a photo in portrait orientation and then the other third when I turn the page is just frustrating.

The content

In this first issue it's kind of "meh". Some of the photos are nice, but overall I'm not terribly inspired by it. The articles are sort of hipster, which is to be expected, but they lack a real spark of interest. I'll give it some time to grow into itself, assuming the app quirks are worked out, but if the content doesn't improve I won't stick around too long.
