  • AP iPad Aug 7, 2012

    By haztam
    The AP iPad app is great. I live in Mexico and AP is hard to find, so I was excited to see that there was still a way for me to receive my AP. Being able to hear the bands that are in the magazine with the touch of a finger is awesome. It has made sampling new music super easy. The only gripe I have is that it downloads super slow (but that may be because of the crappy Internet in Mexico). Overall, if you like the magazine, you'll love the app.

  • Wow, just wow. Jan 10, 2012

    By madridsfinest2006
    I've been a fan of AP for a long time now, and when I got my iPad, 1 of the first magazines I got from Zinio (because Newsstand wasn't around) was yours. & it ruled. But this Newsstand version blew me away. @ first, I was a little confused (and not gonna lie annoyed) about why the Paramore (jan 2012) issue was almost half a gig, but when I got to open it up, all was forgiven. It's interactive, You even gotmyers tinkering with the ads & I don't need wifi to preview the tracks (like I occasionally do with Zinio). I love it!!, I showed all my coworkers & they were wow'ed too. THIS IS EXACTLY HOW A MUSIC MAGAZINE SHOULD BE. The other magazines I have with Zinio & Newsstand are gonna have to keep up.

  • Alternative Press Is absolutely Horrible Oct 11, 2018

    By Selena sanchez vhhffhhgt
    The app is awful, i had stopped getting my monthly mobile subscription for some reason. I still haven’t gotten my Twenty One Pilots Hard Magazine yet. They said that they would ship the My Chem Magazine on the 5th of October, still not in my hands. I get my rock sound Magazines before the Alternative Press and rock sound is in the UK. They always ship late. I once had to wait for my order for 2 months cause it kept getting delayed. I feel like it all went down hill ever since they changed it up. I had payed $20 for a two year subscription of a hard copy of magazines. Then they changed everything, they switched my subscription to Electronic, so my $20 went down the Freaking drain. Over all, do not ever get a subscription or buy anything from them ever! I repeat, ever!

    The app crashes every time I try to turn a page, utterly unacceptable since I paid to read it.

    Dies every time I try to turn a page. Downloads take multiple attempts, if they work at all. Alternative Press may have the worst digital division in magazine history.

    For $15 I am very disappointed in this app. Over half of the pages of one of the magazines I was trying to read were completely blank and the app keeps crashing. As I said, not impressed at all.

    Great app for my favorite magazine but it takes a while to download each new issue....and then it screws up and has to start over.. And over... But once you get it fully downloaded the pictures and articles and music is great! :) a good app over all, definitely worth the money

  • Great app, issues no longer loading Dec 12, 2012

    By Anonymous0790
    Once the (beautiful) app starts working again, I'll change my review back to five stars. If this continues any longer, I'm looking into canceling my subscription. Update: if you get this error just reinstall it.

  • Very fun Apr 14, 2012

    By Mchlbmbd
    I have enjoyed the iPad editions of GQ and Wired, but the iPad AP is by far the most beautiful e-mag. I mean, wow. They make extensive use of dual layers, so you'll be viewing static pictures while scrolling through the text. All the while listening to tons of song by bands featured in the same issue, using their playlist. I don't like half the bands that AP covers, but I want to read it just for the experience. The bad thing is that it freezes up and crashes ALL THE TIME. It may be due to the playlist; I'm not sure. It gets on my nerves.

  • Great but one little thing.... Mar 11, 2016

    By kountrygentlemn
    I love this app and I love supporting companies that support music so 5 stars as far as that goes, but one thing that I find irritating is that I have to click "source" at the bottom of an article to be directed to the page that the video is on. While this isn't a "problem" I would get so much more out of the app and I highly think you should consider embedding the videos in the articles for the app if that's possible. Thank you!

    Really a pretty good digital magazine with some great features like links to band sites and an included playlist each issue. Unfortunately a bit buggy, crashes a little too often and the interface can be a bit awkward and clunky at times. Still, at a little over a $1 per issue I'd say it's a solid contender as a replacement for the physical thing. Fix the bugs/maybe improve the interface a bit and easily 5 star worthy on content alone

  • Love the content Mar 7, 2012

    By dbecker33
    I'm a big fan of AP mag and I love the content, but the app is a bit unstable, it sometimes won't read my gesture to turn the page or to try and view more of the content on a specific page, its kind of annoying but I'll deal with it since I love the magazine!

  • Annoying. Apr 29, 2012

    By Stupidappisstupid
    I get the physical copy at home but wanted it on my iPad so I can read it whenever and it's a pain. I get the magazine in the mail and it takes like a month for me to get the issue on my iPad and even then I have to 'check for missing issues' every time to get the new ones. When info get it it's pretty good. I like how it's interactive with music and such.

    It's a great idea in concept, but why do I want to pay for subscription on here when I get the magazines in the mail. I wanted this when I was on the go, but I'm not going to pay for two subscriptions for the same magazines.

  • Never worked Apr 24, 2015

    By Boomer1950
    I have a iPhone 6+ and I was never able to open this 'magazine' properly. It would open to a black page - or perhaps to the top or bottom of a page. When I tried to move from one page to the next, the pages would flutter & go black. The most obvious clue as to the complete dysfunction of this app is that it crashed my iPhone EVERY time I opened the app. I have asked for a full refund from Apple with no response from them. I tried to cancel my subscription, but all I could do was to stop it from charging me again next year. I have erased this 'magazine' from my iPhone because I was afraid of the damage it might be doing as it continually crashed my phone upon opening it. I would like to think that the developer will see this & arrange my refund. I will be as persistent as their app was dysfunctional - & that's saying a lot - I won't stop until I get my money back!
