The old app worked great the new one is horrible. It doesn’t even remember what page you were on. I’ll be going back to print version but probably won’t renew when it ends if they can’t fix what they broke. Update oct 15 still doesn’t open to the page I’m on using the iPad.
Restore back to old app asap 1/5
By customer since 1992
I paid for access and now it does not work. I travel a lot and can’t read offline. No help in the system, no bookmark, no indicator if An issue is downloaded ... come on.... go back.... fix all this and then deploy when ready.
New update doesn't work. Avoid. 1/5
Downloaded issues don't appear. Even online I often get a blank white page. Will be unsubscribing.
Update: even though I had restored purchases yesterday, I had to do it again. Then it worked, at least online. Upgrading from one star to two, but still not happy about it.
Update: Requires me to restore purchases every time I open the app. Doesn't allow me to read offline. Back to one star and have cancelled my subscription.
Update: subsequently lost access entirely, even though I have time remaining on my subscription. Wish I could give zero stars. This is unacceptable. Please beta test your apps in future.
New app stinks 1/5
If you leave the app it does not hold your place. When you go to the magazines table of contents you can not easily select an article to go to.
Not user friendly, not easy to read.
Look amateurish 1/5

New update is a huge step backwards 1/5
By Mr. Boring
Fortune magazine has had a great app for many years. It was simple, intuitive, fast, and accurately mimicked the print edition.
With this new app update, they tried to develop a whole new interface. Now we have something that is slow and glitchy. My biggest complaint is that it does not recognize what issue and what page you were on. The old app had a built-in bookmark feature. The new app loses that. It is harder to navigate to a specific page. The only advantage is that you can read it in landscape mode, but that's such a minimal advantage for me.
If don't get old app back will be forced to read paper copy 1/5
I don't get it, the old app worked great, what genius decided to replace it with a version that's all glitz and no substance? A hint, this isn't a magazine you read for the pretty interface. First I noticed the drop down list of articles was gone - replaced by pretty pictures that aren't accessible from within the issue, then worst of all exited the issue I was reading only to find when I opened it again my place had not been saved!
Replace this POS with the former app until you can get your act together enough to a least make a functional app if you're so determined to have pretty pictures
Great...when it works 1/5
No longer works offline. Huge fail. I've got issues downloaded and it says there aren't any. Used to love this app for travel, but now is useless.
New iteration 2/5
Current version does allow reading in the ipad in the landscape mode, but does not keep its place, so when you open it again, you must thumb through and try to find your place. Come on guys!
Love it 5/5
By Qris McAwesome
Has everything I need, load time is quick, super user friendly. 👍🏻
Good update 5/5
Great app. Works on my iPhone and iPad. I really like the reader view, makes reading really easy
Very good App - before Sept 2017 4/5
Great app before September 2017. The best magazine app I have used.
Now it is hard to navigate, reader mode doesn't appear to work and the font size is even smaller.
A change for the worse!
New update is a step backwards 1/5
The app is now much slower at downloading issues
In the upgrade the foolish designers erased all my unread issues
New downloads freeze 90% complete
Will probably not re-subscribe
Not a professional organization like it used to be
Downgrade from Prior Version 1/5
This was prematurely released. Reader Mode is nonexistent. It's PDF version of the hard copy issue. Painful to navigate and read the articles. Please bring back the older version.
Reader Mode for iPad 3/5
The reader mode for iPad doesn't seem to work, and the formatting of the magazine for the iPad has been modified to be a worse user experience than before!
Does not rotate 3/5
App feels old as it does not rotate.
Terrible for digital only 1/5
Takes forever to figure out how to log in, etc.
So far, So good! 5/5
I only started reading Fortune on my iPad Pro a day ado but so far I really enjoy it. Easy to use too.
So far so good 5/5
Day one- good app, thus far.
Fortune App 5/5
By Bro Derek S Craig
I love it. I'm getting my MBA. Many of my colleagues and friends have recommended Fortune to me. The app is a great compliment to the print version. You can across all devices as well. The app seems to work great i.e. No freeze ups.
Lacks customer service 3/5
By Susan Mango Curtis
Try to create a password so that if I wanted to load on my phone for another iPad I own I could use it. Found it impossible to do so other than that I love the magazine.
Great Quality-Challenging Navigation 3/5
Really enjoy the quality of production and article contents. However, navigation and flexibility leave a lot to be desired.
Overall, good quality and substance.
I don't like the format 2/5
By Some Wise Guy
I don't like the way this app is set up. Instead of having to download each magazine, I'd like to read each individual article in a format more appropriate for my phone. The words in this app are almost too small to read.
By inman girl
if you have a subscription where digital is included - impossible to get. can't seem to login to establish account, never received an account number from fortune, can't send an email to fortune (doesn't seem to work) to complain and ask for help. I will try with the phone tomorrow but so far the technology to sign up is very poor.
Fortune Magazine Application 5/5
This is one of the best applications I have ever used on the IPhone 7. This application realistically translates the magazine experience the an electronic version on the phone. The earlier versions of this app were very clunky, but this is now much improved. Congrats to Fortune Magazine.
Very disappointed 1/5
By Fairport Mike
It simply doesn't work. Even though I have a subscription, which the app itself will confirm when I click the Subscribe link, I can't get to the issues.
This app is ridiculous 1/5
By does hannah really live in montana
Doesn't work. I added a digital subscription to my print and attempted to access it to no avail. After wasting an hour I called and cancelled my digital subscription. Again, all within an hour. Surprising that a name like Fortune would be so out of it???
Sometimes slow and buggy. I want landscape mode!
No landscape 1/5
By I love Amrerica
One of the best magazine apps 5/5
I’ve tried several news and magazine apps and I think this is one of the best implementations.
Why no landscape mode. With all the keyboards and iPad Pro marketing featuring this sideways mode, how hard could it be to accommodate? I cancelled after first edition.
Quit working 2/5
By Abu Ta'ir
I have enjoyed this app since it was first released. However, it has quit working. Now when I open it, the start up screen shows for several seconds before the app shuts down. It has been impossible to get any technical support for this problem. Maybe I should go back to the paper version or just give up on the magazine.
Easy Reading 4/5
By Garage Sale redux
App works well. No major issues experienced in past two months of sporadic use. More intensive use might reveal flaws. I use to read content, view included photos and respond to questions and comments.
Similar digital experience to iPad 4/5
Works great but no landscape mode. Better have great eyesight.
Excellent Magazine App 5/5
Easy to navigate and the extras make it a great upgrade from the mag. Scrolling sidebars, videos, extra stories, I would highly recommend it.
Great companion for my subscription 4/5
I love this app. I have not had any issues so far. I can access the magazine from iPhone and iPad. I would love to see an an option to read this in iBooks app. I wish there was Newsstand App for MacBook too.
Is there a way to be notified when new magazine is available for download?
Terrible app for iPhone 1/5
Poor navigation, poor readability, no ability to print or share articles. Great Mag but not in current century with technology. 😞
Good app 5/5
By Victory Hanoi
Very good app
Half baked 2/5
Slow loading times
Always forgets subscription info
Always tries to make you buy things you have via subscription
Less than ideal
Not worth more words or more time on my review
I prefer paper.
Won't let me log in 1/5
By Wanna be reader
Even though my digital subscription is set up, I still can't open the app - it keeps saying I need to pay. No other magazine I subscribe to has this issue. Beyond annoying
Used to be better. What happened? 2/5
This used to be a much better app that created a richer experience than the print version of the magazine. It was very interactive and innovative. Now, it essentially just gives you a PDF of the print version with a few imbedded videos. Disappointing that they would go backwards. Was it due to cost? Pressure from the advertisers? Was the online subscription canibalizing print subscriptions? Micromanaging by the parent company? Could make for a good story in the magazine itself...
Great apps 5/5
Super easy to use
Fortune magazine 5/5
By Likey Clock
This knew way of reading mags is fantastic! I will slowly come to like it more as it is so convenient to use. Thanks for this step into the future.
Great App! 5/5
By South OC Guy
I downloaded this App so I can read Fortune on the go.
I love the set up and the navigation slide bar on the bottom gets me to where I want to go faster than any other App that I've downloaded thus far.
So far no crashes or lock-ups!
By Brodie mcbrokerson
Doesn't flow well.
Like Magazine, hate App. 1/5
By Westchester boy
You get an email telling you the next issue is available but you can't load it and support people have no clue.
My New Yorker appears on my bookshelf magically and all I do is press the little cloud and in about a minute - presto - my new issue appears! Fortune, hire some 16 year olds to fix your App.
Simply atrocious. Stuck in endless loop asking me to connect to iTunes to enable push notification even though I don't want notificAtions and have turned them off.
Also very hard to use. Why has it become impossible to read the content???? Very badly done by Fortune Magazine.
Can't get through the password reset process 1/5
By It’s ready
In a loop.
