  • Good but can be better Jan 14, 2019

    By Apple3gs
    While the interface works well on iPhone and iPad, the web interface is little clunky. Barring these missing features, I think this is a great value: * no sync across devices - I have an iPhone as well as an iPad and if I read a magazine on one device, the app on other device should continue from where I left off. * favorites organization is severely lacking - I have many magazines as favorite and I can only see magazines in the order I added them. There should be some way to sort/group items * there is no visible download queue and the downloads stop when the app is in the background. I usually like to download few magazines before I leave for a trip but have to keep waiting for the downloads to finish. There is no easy way to know if the downloads have finished so I have to remember the last magazine I put in the queue and see if it is done

    Not so good. Slow to download (my connection is fine), not interactive (can't click on and open links or fill in crosswords). Would like to be able to tap on the side of the screen to change the page as well as swipe. Only on the trial and not convinced to pay for the subscription (yet). Needs work.

    Great app and gold subscription service. Website could be better, such as zooming and skipping pages of issues, not quite as seamless as readily. However really like the selection of daily newspapers. No / little puzzle and interactive magazines though. Overall a good value unlimited magazine service, with a few more improvements it could be 5 star.

  • Worth a million times over! Feb 21, 2018

    By NicolasHookk5
    If you are someone who purchases even 1-2 magazines per week, you are wasting your money at the store. You need to stop now and get a subscription to this app. You have access to hundreds of online issues, also available to read offline. I no longer have piles of magazines laying around. I’m also able to save articles and pics of things I like, and share with friends electronically. I’m saving hundreds of dollars per year by canceling my other subscriptions, yet I have so many more magazines to read! A great gift idea, too!

    Awful experience! My subscription expired 2 years ago and I am still getting recurrent charges. Since is 0.99 I was not bothered, but when I tried to cancel... doesn't work. Their website is quite misleading and there are no clear management of the subscriptions. In any case, their business model is a scam or what else can you call billing for a cancelled subscription? Stay away!

    I purchased a 1 year subscription of magzter about two months ago. The app was working well for the first few weeks. Now, I am not being able to access any of the old editions of the magazines I want. I had subscribed to this app hoping to get hold of some quality magazines and their older editions, but it mostly contains magazines that nobody ever reads and none of the old editions for the good ones are accessible. The subscription is definitely money down the drain.

    I tried a 30 day free trial for gold service. Unlimited access to a wide variety of magazines. Liked it so decided to subscribe to gold service. What is very unclear with this service is the unlimited acess to all magazines does not apply once your free trial is over. You pay $9.99 a month for a store front to purchase any magazines you are interested in. It is presented as a Netflix for magazines for one price but it is not. Feel this is very misrepresented. Won’t be paying for another month subscription. Update: was told via email from Magzter customer service, reason I could not access magazines was they had no record of me purchasing their $9.99 plan. I paid through my apple account. Money was taken to pay for Magzter. I ended up requesting a refund from apple. Apple being the awesome company they are gave me my refund. Can’t recommend Magzter. (Loved Magzter form letter response to any issues users having)

  • C’mon Magzter, really??? Oct 17, 2018

    By bdhdiebxbfkdkxbfhwjfh
    So I read some of the negative reviews but figured I would try out the free version. I really liked what I saw. I immediately accepted the offer for the Gold account, which was free for 30 days, but requires you to allow the monthly billing through iTunes. So you have to go into iTunes settings if you want to prevent charges after the 30 day trial period. OK, I get that. Spent some time reading and was happy with the choices I had. 12 hours later, Magzter is telling me I don’t have a Gold account. I’ve read other reviews with similar complaints with responses from the company. Obviously, the company either doesn’t care or doesn’t have the know-how or expertise to fix the problem. Think about this, Magzter: what if your readers contact the magazine publishers that you carry and let them know that your faulty app is giving their magazines a bad rap? Do you understand what I’m saying?

  • Subscription Issue Sep 24, 2018

    By Ging Raye
    I am unable to contact customer support as there is not a phone number or preferably, an email address to contact them. Today, I was offered a 7 day free trial to Magzter Gold and I took them up on it, signed up, etc. Then I went to download the app to another device and as soon as I opened the app it offered me a 30 day free trial - huge difference there. I would love to have the additional time to review the app, as I am already a subscriber to Texture...want to see which offers more, which I like better. But no way to contact them about this. I have screenshots of both offers as well as proof of the offers, but if someone would get back with me, would be fabulous! I’ll certainly give it a 5 star rating should I get a response...as a business owner myself, it makes a huge difference to me if a company has good customer support.

    Magzter App is an excellent ' made for reader/enthusiasts '. It's a ' powerhouse of news,knowledge and information '. It serves interest of almost every reader. However, Many voracious readers like me require to read international newspapers, magazines like NYT ,Guardian, Washington Post, Newyorker etc. P V Prakash

  • Works perfectly on iPad Air Feb 21, 2018

    By Christopher Arnold 5
    For years I have wanted to read magazines online. This app does the job. On an iPad Air, pages turns are quick enough to be similar to reading a printed copy and the resolution is high enough to not be annoying. Unlike a home computer where there is not enough resolution, this works very nicely. Thank you for making this available. I like that the next time I open it, it keeps my place where I am reading in each magazine.

  • I already have an account. Oct 21, 2019

    By Kadeegirl
    My name is T.Gail Chavis. I already have an account with Magzter, on my phone. I just got a new IPad, and wanted to have the best of both worlds. I just don’t want to be charged twice. Some how the company was going to charge me twice , when I put the app on my old IPad. I didn’t want to use it at the time because I didn’t want to be charged twice. I believe that won’t happen again. I look forward to enjoying your product for many years. Sincerely , T.Gail Chavis

  • Bought a $30 subscription, no magazine Jun 11, 2018

    By Mike_Monty
    iPhoneX with iOS 11.4, bought a magazine subscription but the app said it was not successful. My iTunes account though was charged and it shows a good subscription. The app Restore function fails and I have no access to what I paid for. Deleted and reinstalled app but same result. ***** Update: Within 48 hours technical support fixed the issue and I changed the rating from 1 to 4 stars accordingly. Follow the guidelines within the app for reporting problems.

  • Get your bookmarks together Jan 15, 2019

    By Userthree
    I love access to the magazines but I’m frustrated with the viewer app that now requires network access to change bookmarks. Often I’m in a location without WIFI access with my tablet, but I still want to be able to add and delete bookmarks to mark my progress. I’m also frustrated with the buggy, changing interface for managing bookmarks, the inconsistencies of their management and the current failure to keep track and usefully sort those bookmarks for a particular issue—what was working pretty well is now a minefield of errors and frustration.

    Favorite magzine, continue reading, recently visited section are not shown in website on laptop, it shows only in Mobile App, It doesn't synchronize with website. IT BECOME DIFFICULT TO READ ON WEBSITE AS I have TO SEARCH AGAIN AND FIND THE CURRENT READ PAGE. SYNCHRONIZE THE APP DATA WITH WEBSITE SO THAT I CAN READ ON ANY DEVICE. Please add some Valuable Science Magzines Like- IEEE Magzine, MIT , THE HINDU NEWSPAPER ETC. and many more, i will mail you,

  • Hit or miss reading while disconnecting from the internet Dec 22, 2018

    By Smizno5380
    this app let me read my magazines while traveling only 40% of the time. I travel a lot and I like to be able to read while flying or boating, and constantly this app has let me down. This last trip the app was completely blank for the duration on my trip! It’s unless if you don’t have a constant internet connection.

  • Have to pay extra for some magazines Oct 19, 2019

    By pitmama71
    When I seen the ad in Apple Magazine, read that for $9.99 unlimited magazines, yes there are a lot of magazines included in the monthly subscription but majority of the magazines I’m interested in have to pay extra so this app isn’t worth it because you pay the same if you just subscribe to the magazines you want.

  • Used to be a great app Jun 2, 2018

    By MFMFMfmfmfmfmfmfmfm
    Ads started showing up in my magazines that did not used to be there. I am not interested in the ads nor the product. The ads are for a product that is totally unrelated to the content of my magazine. I find them irritating and a nuisance. These are not magazine ads but apparently are now embedded in the app and came with the latest update. No way to opt out. No way to tell Magzter I don’t want them. This used to be a 5-star app. I guess somebody at Magzter figured out a new way to get more advertising revenue. I am seriously considering going back to paper copies of my magazine.

  • Not as advertised-trouble canceling subscription Oct 24, 2017

    By Flower tunes
    Upon signing up for the free trial I discovered much of what I wanted required additional purchases. I tried to cancel through both the app and directly through Magzter's website but received an error. Essays saying they could access the data and to try again later. This needs to be fixed....first and foremost the error for canceling a subscription. You also need to better explain that the gold plan does not provide unlimited access to all of your titles.
