Better but still annoying

3.5 stars. They seemed to have finally figured out that having autoplaying movies with loud engine noises it not something everyone wants when READING a magazine. So at least now you don't have to constantly dive for the mute button when you decide to read quietly in public.

The content and imagery is excellent but it's still wrapped in erratic, annoying and inconsistent design. Are you swiping up, down left or right to continue reading the same article this time? Why am I being told to swipe in a particular spot when i should be swiping next to the item instead? Why don't all images go full screen? If you can't zoom in to an image then at least make it enlarge. Thumbnail galleries are pointless. Plus, many more interactive "activities" to make every page more difficult to read.

It's still forced landscape too (which as everyone knows is the most comfortable way to read on an iPad! Hope you all bought an Air!) but at least now they made the library forced landscape too so you are not spinning around.

On the upside it's still far, far cheaper than buying a physical magazine subscription if you are in North America. So, pay less work harder to read it, or pay more and you'll be able to read it in more comfort and less time.

Great iPad content rendered unusable by update

I have enjoyed reading Top Gear Magazine in its printed form for years, but living in New York it was always expensive and late to get hold of.
I couldn't help but think there had to be a better way. Apple rolled out the iPad and as soon as it was available I subscribed to the magazine through Zinio. Their rubbish delivery (late) felt like a step backwards, and I leapt onto the app distributed through Apple's Newsstand. All the waiting was gone and I could enjoy the magazine as soon as it came out. Hooray!
Then came the latest update, and suddenly it's all gone very wrong. No portrait view? No zoom? I can only guess that they released this app without testing it at all. I'm sure there must be lovely features and lots of bells and whistles, but I haven't experienced any of them because they have rendered the magazine unreadable.
Maybe it's all part of an upcoming episode of the show where Clarkson, Hammond. and May take it upon themselves to re-design the iPad app? I don't think so, because even the Hammerhead Eagle iThrust was better conceived, and tested according to the video footage of testing that the boys put together, and the Reliant Robin Space Shuttle was more successful.
