Glitchy

I signed up for a free trial before a long trip last year so I could have a lot of reading material without the bulk. At fury I was delighted. I downloaded magazines before my sixteen hour flight and it helped pass the time. Then I started to experience more and more glitches. The app would close every few pages and when I would reopen it, it forgot my place. I decided it wasn’t worth it. Then before my free trial period was over and I could cancel I was charged for the first month. I followed this up with Apple and they helped me cancel my subscription and refund the money. I also emailed texture to let them know how disappointed I was both with the glitches and with the fact that the charged me within the free trial period. I never heard back. Then later this year I started getting charged for it again out of the blue on my credit card. It was not through Apple, but when I contacted them they insisted that I had signed up but cancelled anyway. Fast forward to Christmas when someone gifted me a subscription to texture. As it was a gift I decided to give it a try. I do love how much content is available but I am still disappointed that downloading is so slow and that it still glitches. I can’t read one magazine without the app closing. At least now it remembers my place. If it didn’t glitch and if Customer service was better I would love this app but as it is there is still improvement to be had before it’s outstanding.

Excellent App it’s replacement Apple News+ 1 star

I’ve been using Texture for more than a year and I enjoy the format and the ability to search for articles throughout all magazines. I have my favorite magazines and you can download easily and delete when you are finished.

I started my trial on Apple News+ and I’m very disappointed. Most Apple Apps are polished and intuitive but this is just a mess. The merging of news and magazines doesn’t work. Once I figured out how to get to the + part I tried to download my magazines. They downloaded, I think, but they stay mixed with the other offered magazines making it harder to find your favorites. Once you have a magazine you can’t delete it, apparently Apple will delete them for you after 30 days? If you have limited space you are stuck until the 30 days expire!

I’m very disappointed that Apple is releasing their replacement of the Texture app before it is ready for prime time. I’m ending my trial and sticking to Texture until Apple closes it the end of May. Hopefully they will make some massive improvements of the magazine portion of the app within that time. I’ll try again, one more chance, and if I don’t see improvements galore then I’ll start subscribing to my favorite PRINT magazines.

Love This Service - Apple Please Don’t Screw It Up!

I am thoroughly enjoying this service. While I generally prefer to own rather than rent (eg, buying CDs versus subscribing to Apple Music), I love being able to read dozens of new issues of the available magazines each month without subscribing to each one separately. Plus you get access to a ton of back issues for each title as well (as far as I’ve seen). Each issue is, at minimum, a duplicate of the print version, so you’re seeing the same thing; some issues are more e-friendly, where an article scrolls down rather than continuing page-after-page, which is a convenient way to skip past something you don’t want to read (just swipe to the next page/article, as opposed to swiping several times to get to the next article).

My only concern at this point is that Apple not screw up this great service with the merger into Apple News. I like using Apple News as well, for daily headlines, and I don’t object to the idea of Apple merging the two into one, as long as the content and user-friendliness stay the same.

I encourage readers to try the service either way, Texture or Apple News+, to see how cool it is to have so much diverse content to read. Both versions have a free-trial period.
