  • Subscription through iTunes is frequently not recognized

    By Bri9989
    It frequently disregards your subscription through iTunes. I’ve tried using the restore function and it doesn’t work.
  • Overall very good

    By jedomann
    Like others have said, this app dies the job, and the magazine content itself is great.
  • Just kinda weird

    By Tonyval36
    The app is not as functional as it should be. It’s not like reading a digital book on a Kindle app, it is more like a scanned version of a print copy. Not practical as you must make an effort to zoom in and out of each page so that you can read the font. I cannot recommend this app
  • App startup takes a long time (if online), does not fill full ipad pro screen

    By jkgarrahan
    PROS: This is the highest quality version of the mag, out of all the online options. Almost no noticeable compression and no formatting errors (vs Kindle, Zinio). Zinio does offer Text-to-Speech, which is great. FIXED: I can now read issues offline and it fills up the full iPad screen. It’s really fast if you are on airplane mode. I added two more stars! :-) CONS: Store take a long time to load. (updated November 2020)
  • Great but could be better

    By Greg The Incredible
    Love the content. Pages are very clear and easy to read. Only complaint is offline viewing & library are annoyingly slow. Would like to see significantly better performance here.
  • Love the magazine, but the app is subpar.

    By Danny Welch
    There are several areas for improvement with the app, and I really hope the developers will address some of the many complaints over time. The performance is pretty terrible. The library section still has tons of screen space consumed by store, sub, and sign-in. There is a separate store section, so taking up real estate for the library view seems like overkill. There are so few options for organizing the library. Just adding the ability to manually adjust the order would be a huge plus. Anyway, I love the magazine enough to tolerate the issues with the application, but things good be so much better.
  • Fantastic

    By Dlcraddock
    Easy to use and gorgeous images, especially on my iPad Pro.
  • The magazine is great, the app is terrible

    By McPicklesJr
    I subscribed a few months ago and ended up buying the back catalogue of issues and enjoyed reading them until I’d discovered some of the apps quirks: no reading issues offline, no reading issues until the publishers store loads, the publishers store won’t always load, loading the publishers store often causes the app to crash. It is at a point where I can longer read the magazines, instead I watch the app load and then crash out. Don’t download this app, if you want to read Retro Gamer, get the physical subscription.
  • The app does Not work.

    By Sywlyn
    Downloaded the app. And also the pc gamer app. Purchased a few issues and nothing. Nothing in my library. But. Billed. They take your money but literally give you nothing in return. Going to escalate this Apple to try and have the app removed as it doesn’t do what it says it does. Don’t bother trying to restore purchases in the app. I’ve tried that off two IPads now and it doesn’t work.
  • Please allow library access without online connection

    By raizingsun
    Twice now a bug has occurred where the app locks up trying to access the store and so I can’t access my library. I’m then forced to delete the app reinstall and redownload load all my issues. It just happened a third time prompting me to write this review. If you remove the need to access the store and allow me to just read my issues I’ve paid for I’ll change my star rating, which reflects the app and not the magazine itself, which is good.
