Dishonest developer with regards to renewal 1/5
Subscribe to their trial and didn’t like the range. Made a conscious effort to cancel the subscription but the app would not let me do so until they auto renew. I suspect they are forcing people to renew
Pretty bad payment matching with account 1/5
Having torrid time enabling Gold membership with my account details and it is irritating to see the pop up for same Gold subscription every time when you click On Magzter newsletter links
Ugh. The app. 1/5
By Account Nickname
The mag selection is great. The app is horrible. It deletes without notice the mags I download so I can’t read them offline when I’m ready.
Excellent app 5/5
Really it's a super application for those interested in journals and updating day to day affairs across the world!
Worth downloading 5/5
It provides access to so many magazines across different genres! Videos content is awesome! Great app for readers
Great collection! 5/5
Happy to have one app that provides access to magazines across all categories and languages.
Awesome magazines and articles 5/5
The video articles looks cool! Easy to read my favourite international magazines and articles.
Awesome App 5/5
Hundreds of magazines available at fingertips. I like the selective articles from all the magazines.
Simply the best 5/5
Huge collection of magazines with simple user interface, which makes it easy to navigate. Must-have app for all magazine lovers!
Poor updating 2/5
This app is very slow and does very little up
Once I paid for the subscription, I found out that there were extra fees to view many of the magazines, the ones you actually want to read. I immediately looked for a way to cancel and get a refund, but there is no way to do this. Very unhappy
This app was once GREAT in regards to having access to all magazines under the GOLD membership. Not any more. ALL of my favorite magazines are now NOT included in the GOLD magazine membership. Very disappointing.
Membership does not allow all magazines 2/5
Subscribed, lots of magazines will not read such as seventeen, vogue, teen vogue, girls world, and lots of others, downloading slow, downloads into memory no matter if just read or browse will fill memory on your iPad, only work around is uninstall and reinstall, will cancel trial.
Family Share 3/5
Family share option is not available at this time. It gives a cancel option but not an add option of four members as advertised.
Not working 1/5
Just paid for gold subscription, processed, and no access to magazines, restore will not work, logged out and no cannot log in again. Worthless at this point. Very upsetting.
App doesn’t work 1/5
Haven’t been able to download any magazines even though I have a gold membership.
New update killed it 1/5
No more magazines are downloading after This new update... I am a gold member for three years now and will be forced to cancel if this is not fixed
Not as advertised-trouble canceling subscription 2/5
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.
Ever since you updated your app on Apple it now has a frustrating bug that it didn’t have before the update. It is very frustrating to be reading a magazine on your app and get kicked off the app after about 5 minutes. Please fix this!
Spam should be effortless opt out 4/5
Update: I appreciate the effort from the publisher to respond to my comment.
— — — — —
Original comment: They sent junk mail to the address I used to sign up. I tried to unsubscribe and the webpage required my Magzter password.
Seriously? A password to prevent spam? App deleted.
Very poor customer support 1/5
I have a gold subscription. For the past 10 days the app doesn’t open on my iPad. The only solution being offered is to reinstall the app and redownload all the magazines. This is in the FAQ section. Magzter support doesn’t bother to reply to complaints. Every other app on my iPad is working fine.
Update crashes 1/5
By Arvind K
The latest 6.15 version crashes on iPad 9.3.5. Please fix immediately as we are unable to open app for many days now.
Or working for iOS 11 1/5
Magzter has been a good app but isn’t working for iOS 11. Please look into it ASAP.
Crap, Crap and more Crap 1/5
Most of the "magazines" are bogus. 10-20 pages. Even the people in the pictures look scared!
On top of that, you are continually ask to subscribe to things...where your Magzter 'subscription" should give you access to everything.
RUN AWAY! The folks are crooks!
A Real Gyp 1/5
Holds you hostage until you commit to pay $50.00! Then offers you "free" 30 days if you don't cancel, they wack your card! Pass them by!
The subscription worked and was able to have access to my magazines for about a month and then it didn't.
Waste of money!
Wasn't available to gain access to the magazines even though I paid for it.
When contacted costumer support was told to do whole bunch of technical staff to gain access, needless to say the problem wasn't solved!
The idea behind the subscription model is great but in reality be careful and think twice or you might be throwing your money away on something that doesn't work the way it should!
Trash App 1/5
Bad load times
Save your money and avoid
Good stuff 4/5
I like it it has a majority of the magazines that I read and their are a few that are not on it but that's ok!
Stole my money 1/5
Never got the app to work and they never refunded my money. Too bad I really wanted that mag subscription.
Cancel membership 1/5
I want to cancel my membership but I don't see that feature any where on the app or website, not cool...
By D. Hill
Magtzer itself is less a magazine subscription service and is more a portal serving as a gateway to read and discover magazines you know and don't know. Upon setup the app lets you select your interests and after you are finished it sets up on the main page a lists of publications that fits what you like. The publications are endless covering the most popular such as Entertainment Weekly, GQ, Wired and many more to the more niche. The application basically functions as a way to set up your own magazine store where you not only quickly access publications you enjoy but the featured articles from the issues as well. In the article section is a stream of featured and popular stories. This is great for users who may not want to always dive in on a whole issue and rather read bits from various magazines covering similar topics. Like with almost any reading based application articles can be shared and saved for later. All the content in the app can be managed in the My Collection section. Magtzer is a unique application and therefore has a unique payment structure with the ability to subscribe to individual magazines, purchase individual magazine issues or subscribe to the service allowing you to access any of the 8, 000 plus publications. Magtzer sweetens the deal giving users a taste of the service with a free 30 day trial. For users of Zinio Magtzer will be familiar but it can be described as richer more complete platform that allows you to completely manage your magazine lifestyle.
Poor not worth it 1/5
Too many magazines require extra purchase. No information on how to quit if you are not satisfied.
Very easy for magazines
Deceptive subscription offer 1/5
Watch out! I was led to think that I would have annual access to all of the shown magazines that were offered. The ad shows magazines that require an additional subscription. Very misleading!!!!!
Not a good app..... 1/5
By Magzter is a mess!
This app bombards you with useless promotional messages and needless notifications and does not give you an option to opt out! Lousy app!
Wonderful Buy 5/5
Magzter is simply wonderful - so easy to read, listen to and broaden horizons - glad I found this app
Family sharing is an issue 3/5
They said i can share access with four family members but it doesn't Offer a way to do it. It was the main reason why i resubscribed.
Also, it turns out that they show you all kindsbbqof magazine covers but it turns out you can ONLY read the ones with the yellow circle with the book logo ... The rest you have tocvapay extra to read ... Why not just be honest and explain that ... Which isn't explained until you try to use the system and you find that everything you want required a separate charge.
That's not right
Extremely disappointing purchase 1/5
Deceptive advertising doesn't explain the most desirable magazines require additional paid subscriptions. Most of the choices are obscure, e.g., Elevator World, tons of Asian, African and Indian magazines. Many publications haven't had issues posted for a long time, e.g., last available issue of The American Scholar was published in 2014. Avoid this rip-off site like the plague!
Very useful app 5/5
There is a variety of magazines to suit my needs, from Finance, Health to my regional magazine.
Just subscribed and paid 3/5
Cannot get access???
Really need auto download features for mags I read every month 3/5
By Reviewer 90034
Have gold. But it looks like magzter makes us make extra effort for downloading periodicals that I have interest in. Why do I have to search every month. Why cants it automatically be downloaded?
Wasn't exactly user friendly 2/5
After much frustration I was able to access my purchased digital copy. Once I got it was was good. I may try another mag at some point.
By Sultan Abbas.
It's just amazing application for those who love reading.
Awesome App and unlimited options 5/5
Having been gold subscriber for last two years. This has provided amazing reading platform across my devices and great content. Family plan feature is fabulous. Recommend this for anyone who likes to read.
Organizational Issues 3/5
Speedy downloads, but improvements needed in organizing these magazines. Prefer to have each issue under heading of each magazine title, instead of showing all of them in thumbnails. Total clutter and difficult to find older issues. Results in scrolling forever.
By Can't delete old mag apps
It's great for current subscriptions. Though once they expire or the mag quits production is a problem. I have not been able to remove any of them and Magzter told me to talk to Apple Store??? Still have all old mag apps on Magzter and can't find anyone to tell me how to delete!
Nice app... 5/5
Keep adding more magazines...
A good tool 4/5
By Blueteeth 35
This is a good APP. If more information, its better.
Great collection 5/5
It has a huge collection of articles with a wide variety of topics covered in one place. The app also contains exciting videos which keeps me entertained.
More Than A Magazine App 5/5
Magzter's iPhone app now offers tremendous content beyond the magazine. First articles and, now compelling videos. Keep innovating!
