You screwed up. 1/5
In the spirit of trying to make things better I think the app has become worse. Your app locks up when downloading. I think your app was o much more friendly in the past. Oh well. It's still a good deal on reading magazines.

Don’t sign up for Texture. I got the week’s free trial and then tried to find a way to say “no thanks please cancel.” But they don’t offer any easy way to cancel. They’ll probably take at least one month’s fee until I can figure out how to disconnect from Texture. Lousy customer service.
I signed up for a free trial before a long trip last year so I could have a lot of reading material without the bulk. At fury I was delighted. I downloaded magazines before my sixteen hour flight and it helped pass the time. Then I started to experience more and more glitches. The app would close every few pages and when I would reopen it, it forgot my place. I decided it wasn’t worth it. Then before my free trial period was over and I could cancel I was charged for the first month. I followed this up with Apple and they helped me cancel my subscription and refund the money. I also emailed texture to let them know how disappointed I was both with the glitches and with the fact that the charged me within the free trial period. I never heard back. Then later this year I started getting charged for it again out of the blue on my credit card. It was not through Apple, but when I contacted them they insisted that I had signed up but cancelled anyway. Fast forward to Christmas when someone gifted me a subscription to texture. As it was a gift I decided to give it a try. I do love how much content is available but I am still disappointed that downloading is so slow and that it still glitches. I can’t read one magazine without the app closing. At least now it remembers my place. If it didn’t glitch and if Customer service was better I would love this app but as it is there is still improvement to be had before it’s outstanding.
All the good stuff and at a low price. Love this app.
One complaint 4/5
Magazines that are no longer in print/digitally produced are still advertised as part of their offerings. Within the app they are listed also with no indication that there will be no new issues in the future.
The best APP ever 5/5
I don’t leave home with out it! I travel and it’s so nice not having a pile of magazines to carry.
This is one of my top apps. 5/5
By Max Hall
This is an app I use almost daily. It has helped clear out my mailbox of the paper copies. I love being able to download he magazines before jump on a flight or hanging out at the pool or beach. Have turned a number of friends onto it and all of them have thanked me. Simplifies life with less clutter.
Best App Ever 5/5
By St. Aiden
All the mags I enjoy but can’t justify purchasing every month. Great travel companion.
Up to date 5/5
It took me a bit of time to transition from paper magazines to digital magazines. Now that I have made that transition I love Texture!
All my favorite magazines are delivered online monthly and I don’t have stacks of paper ones to take to the recycle each month.
I can also save specific stories and share them with friends!
In the Highlights section I can read interesting stories from magazines I am not familiar with.
GREAT CONTENT 3/5
This has to be one of the most frustrating apps I’ve experienced. The content is absolutely great, but the app itself is so frustrating. If you’re reading an article and decide to stop and finish later,it would be nice to go to that article when reopening the app. I’ve also have had the app close on me while using it.
Great variety, enjoyable experience. 5/5
I would have to spend a hundred dollars a month to buy as many magazines in print form vs. what I can view digitally thanks to Texture. Some digital issues also include live interviews and extra photos not available on the print versions. Love Texture!
Needs Discover Magazine 5/5
I wish it would get Discover magazine in the lineup.
No brainer 5/5
While traveling, buying two magazines and schlepping them is expensive and cumbersome. Trashing out articles is less than optimal if you want to share them. With Texture I have full access to any magazine plus I can save an article or share then to other subscribers or convert to pdf. Now I can walk past newsstand, eyeball the covers and then download them all. I can use my iPad or my phone. What can I say? It's awesome. Thank you Texture!!
Need SCUBA and Astronomy Mags 4/5
Please add SCUBA DIVING magazines and Astronomy or Sky &Telescope magazines
Pages go blank when I try to scroll to read them 1/5
This is an on-going problem that I see others have also reported. Across magazines, if the page requires scrolling to read, you can only get about halfway down the page before the screen goes blank and resets back to the top of the page. It makes the app unusable. I tried contacting support but received an error message "Invalid or unverified nonce." No idea what that means, very frustrating.
This is perfect 5/5
Finally a magazine app that’s more than just a pdf reader!!! Thank you for creating such a beautiful app... hopefully you will be able to add international magazines and more business magazines such as hbr... whatever you do, please do not outsource the development of this app to the likes of Maz... you’ve just earned yourself another subscriber for live! Kudos...
I feel liberated from all the paper! 5/5
No more magazines to recycle! I feel informed & organized!
I think it’s great but..... 4/5
This is my second go around with Texture. I’m reviewing after using it few a months.
-Often I’m only interested in a single article. They usually have that publication.
-Search engine works well.
-Deals, they are out there. Find them and decide.
-Ability to cancel and renew.
-Ability to save articles for later.
-There has to be more but it escapes me know
-It’s not easy to navigate
-It doesn’t have the feel of looking at a magazine section in a newsstand or bookstore or even the table in your doctors office.
-I don’t understand the limitations on zooming in to read. Most mags utilize the full 2 pages to tell their story. I’m only able to zoom one side at a time.
-Even though they have almost everything the way it’s laid out it is not not a fun browsing experience.
-Favorites. The stars r confusing.
I will renew but it is easy forget you have.

I love when I go to the checkout at my local grocery store and see racks and racks of magazines. I just smile. I don’t have to pay $5.99 for People, my fav. For just two dollars more I can get just about all the magazines. I don’t have piles of magazines littering my house either. Everyone could use a little Texture on their phone or IPad Pro.
Easy Navigation, Good Features 5/5
This app provides a variety of features including news and article highlights. I love that I can download my magazines to my iPad and read them offline too, it’s great when I travel!
I’m very pleased with the service and look forward to any new titles offered in the future
Got rid of a lot of magazines I liked. 2/5
It seems they’ve downsized their selection or at least got rid of many of the ones I was interested in. Moreover, it seems like much of the magazine offerings are geared toward women so keep that in mind when subscribing.
Don’t bother unless you have an iPad 1/5
The iPhone version of this app is abysmal. Non reader mode in most magazines. Very unpolished interface with clunky controls.
Love it 5/5
Love this app, it’s like Spotify for print. I really hope it stays successful and isn’t run out of business by content owners. Physical print is somewhat dying...and this can save it. I love that I can get a wide variety of magazine ( pretty much everything I want) at my finger tips without paper bulk.
BEST MAGAZINES APP 5/5
By Ellie, CO
Most magazines I love is on this app. It removes my angst of having to throw out beautiful glossy magazines and I get to read my mags at my whim. Great app
No forgot password function?! 1/5
No forgot password function and I need to email to support team for this. Are you serious?
Close to Perfect 4/5
I love this app, but it has an annoying fault that needs to be corrected. It takes longer to open than I would like, but I wouldn't complain about waiting once. But if I have to or want to do something else and leave (without closing), it takes just as long when I return. Please fix this!!!
Best app ever. 5/5
This is the app I use the most to just relax and read some great articles on the subjects I enjoy!
Love it! 5/5
Have been a subscriber for a year. Highly recommended
really excellent concept but 4/5
By Reading Rita
I love Texture and have been subscribing for years. What a bargain! It is a bit glitchy and magazines that require scrolling can be maddening.
Great App 5/5
Love the easy access to magazines & being able to save articles, well done
Kept billing me even after I cancelled 1/5
Even after I cancelled, my credit card continued to be billed. Customer service has not been very helpful.
Orientation of app 4/5
I like to read the magazines in portrait mode. I think it is essential to have an orientation setting that can be locked only for the app (without changing screen lock setting for the entire iPad). Reading magazines in portrait mode all the time while the rest of the iPad is in landscape mode.
Best App ever 5/5
I’ve enjoyed Texture now for almost 2 years. The magazines available are lots of the best available. In the words of a Hollywood legend, “try it, you’ll like it.”
This is the best app
Love it 5/5
Very entertaining . And relaxing. My escape sometimes. My guilty pleasure is reading
Lots of Fun! 4/5
By Maldenite Productions
I open this app and devour some of the best reading and most interesting magazines available to the digital user like myself.
A couple of things should be added. I Seoul’s give the developers a five star rating follows:
1. When I re-open Texture it would be very convenient if I could return to my last open read.
2. Having bookmarks could be a major improvement. Presently, I can save a story to read later but there is not a bookmark capability to take me to my last page read.
Great app! 5/5
I really love Texture. I can read my favorite magazines without having to worry about the waste.
You can also go back to old issues and/or save favorites.
Good quality reading 5/5
This app does a great job of presenting good, quality reading material from trusted sources. On the iPad it’s perfect for virtually paging through magazines. But I’m also surprised how well it works on the iPhone. Lots of articles are formatted for the smaller screen.
ALL MY MAGS , IN 1 PLACE 🤔😝🙋🏽🙌🏽 5/5
One Low Price. Seriously ENOUGH said, but I will say this , I definitely have discovered some mags I've never read before as well . Now to me, that is worth the price AND the 5 stars !!!
Is sports illustrated supported in 2018 3/5
One of the primary reasons I signed up was SI was included in Texture. Is that still the case? Last issue updated is college football playoff preview dated December 25.
Best app ever! 5/5
Totally addictive. All my favorite magazines at one convenient location. And I can save the stories for later.
More fields on interest 4/5
By Superfun xD xD
Great, but needs more medically or scientifically based magazines/journals.
Absolutely love this app! 5/5
I was not sure how I would feel about digital magazines but I love them. I am slowly but surely ending all my paper subscriptions. One advantage it has for those of us on the elderly spectrum ( I am 74) is that our visually impaired can easily enlarge the text to readable size. And no bulky magazines to deal with.
Best out there 5/5
Read tonnes of magazines and this is cheapest way to read them. The ability to clip and save stories is like Evernote. Also the fact that you have access to back issues makes this fantastic.
Great Reads 5/5
I've heard about this app from a number of podcasts I listen to (shout-out to Vox and Crooked Media), and so far I love the app. I've gotten a number of great recipes from the cooking magazines, and I love having easy access to Reuters. I only wish I could get a few more publications like the L. A. Times and the Washington Post, but I suppose I have the News app for that. I'm really enjoying myself in the meantime. Thanks, Texture!
Superior App 5/5
Best App in the market for accessing premium content. Huge assortment of major magazine titles coupled with all the bells and whistles one has come to expect in an app package. It doesn’t get better than this....other than the VALUE proposition. Access to everything at a fraction of the cost of individual titles. GO TEXTURE !!!!!
Love it when it works 1/5
I like this app when it works. I have downloaded and re-downloaded my magazines 4 times now. Somehow the app doesn’t like the magazines to be saved in SD card. It will work but then it would totally disappear randomly. Then you have to download them again. And again. And again. Developer— please fix this problem!
Great way to read magazines!!
Great Bargain, Greater App 5/5
Can’t Express the value “Texture” represents. Simply the best value in Information sharing!
Great selection of magazines! 5/5
I love Texture! There are so many magazines! They also highlight articles so I don’t have to read the whole magazine, I can just read the articles that interest me!
