Customer Reviews

Flashy, but audio and other UI could use testing/improvement

Audio is a neat feature but not useful. No way to forward/rewind or mark your place. Exiting the app and returning causes a full audio restart. Really bad since anyone using an iPad for audio is likely to multitask and not stay on an open audio story for a lengthy feature read. Way to improve is to allow background audio play with full control of the stream (fwd/rad/pause/resume) even if app is left. Subscribers will love being able to queue up stories to be read during a run/commute/etc.
Pages should support pinch/zoom. Love that the orientation can be changed from landscape to portrait.
Also many of the UI elements lack visual cues to show the user they are there and what they do.
Also, subscribers should be able to highlight/copy/paste. This doesn't cut piracy since content is available to subscribers on web with copy/past, it just frustrates note takers using the app, makes reference lookups for copy/paste into search, etc, impossible. You can do better. Think about how users can really leverage and consume content for a truly "better than web and print" experience.

Time, the semi regular old news magazine

Half my dissatisfactions are with the e version and app, and half with a publication I've subscribed to for 50 years but which is rapidly becoming useless. So, just the app issues here: this is basically a print mag with some lame little gadgets. There are rows of dots to use to scroll for additional content; these usually do not work. There are nice big photos and graphics, but they sometimes take up so much space that the text must be scrolled through in a narrow window with only a few lines at a time visible. I'd love to be able to scale up the font size as you can with the Discover magazine, but no. I have been repeatedly asked to purchase issues, though I am a subscriber. There are lots more issues, but one really good thing is that I can get the issue the day it comes out instead of waiting for whenever the post office gets around to. Ringing it.

Great app never a problem

Have been a Time subscriber for more than 40 years. Do not understand previous review. Opening the current week issues a few minutes ago, opens right where I left off. If you have closed app, (I don't normally while reading an issue) when reopening it usually opens at cover then quickly jumps to last read page. (Patience fellow reader).

Audio/video links are great. There is so much extra material with the electronic version. Particularly love Lightbox.

U S News and World report app is painfully buggy. App usually opens issue at cover and you have to figure where you left off. But, do like more than a single news source. And, the subscription price works out to only 25 cents a week.

After more than 40 years reading Newsweek, the last few electronically only, gave up my subscription due to terrible app and zero customer service. Also feel cost of electronic subscription way over priced.
