This app is trash 1/5
Not even worth downloading.
Every time I try to log in it says my info is wrong and I even go as far as changing my password and it still says it’s not correct.
You need to pay. 1/5
With this app you can buy their magazines.This is not free.
Can’t Even Log In 1/5
I’ve reset my password several times, still can’t log in. And yes of course I’ve tried email address, user name and display name, none of them work.
Can’t login 404 page comes up 1/5
I’ve had nothing but trouble getting my magazine that I paid for.
Too much hassle 1/5
I love the game informer magazine but the app has been a constant problem. The app barely works and it’s difficult to download my monthly magazines. Recently went through all of the steps to re-link my account to the app, only for it to give me an error message. Please fix. If I would have known it would be this difficult I would have kept getting my physical copies in the mail.
It’s been broken for months with no ability to log in!
Not Worth Extreme Password Hassle 1/5
This magazine offers a good product. Never opt for digital. Some how, the biggest magazine in the US can’t figure out digital and certainly can’t figure out usernames and passwords. If you download, I hope you have fun trying to figure out how to log in. Subscription cancelled and I will now buy games from Amazon and not Gamestop. You just lost a very very good customer.
STILL can’t log in.... 1/5
Unreal that this has yet to be fixed...
Fix Access ASAP or I’m Out... 1/5
If I can’t read the magazine on my phone anymore I will cancel my subscription and stop purchasing from GameStop through my Pro Account... Target has the same games... and in better stock.
Login doesn’t work all my issues gone 1/5
By Obsidian knoght
The app and no longer allows me to login And all of my downloaded issues have disappeared.
Did they design it to be bad? 1/5
I tend to read things on my phone in landscape, and the app doesn't support landscape. Your forced to read it in portrait. I might be in the minority but this is a deal breaker. Aside from all the bugs everyone and their grandma is reporting. Game informer just does not care.
Broken app 1/5
You can’t even log into the app anymore and they just redirect you to view the issue on their website.
Not at all functional 1/5
What is the point of the app if it indicates logging in availability is currently down then directs you to the browser site. Making me really regret not going with the physical issues of the magazine. At this point a refund should be in order for anyone who purchased the membership and opted for digital copy.
Can’t log in to my account 2/5
Plz fix your app I can’t log into my account
Needs improvement 1/5
I can’t even log in to the app or browser version to read the magazine. What’s going on here?
Can’t log in 1/5
By Manfred Blark
Can’t log into my account. Keeps saying information not authorized on our system?!
Doesn't log in 1/5
Registered with an account on the site and it doesn't allow to log into the app.
Very buggy and won’t even let me log into my game informer subscription account to view the magazines. Trash app.
Love the idea, wish I could say the same for the app. 2/5
I love the idea, I can take away and not have to remember to grab the physical copy. This has a lot of bugs that are annoying more than anything, the app randomly flips the page back after just touching the screen to scroll. Pages also turn with no input from touch screen. I have had this app for almost a year and yet this known issue is still not being corrected. I ask the the editor try to read an issue on the app ( iPhone X) and tell men then he is happy with the app.
Over all I love Game Informer just not the app.
Broken App 1/5
Won’t let me use my subscription I got at Game Stop.
Failed login 1/5
By P3t3r C
I just logged in on my laptop and when I try to on the app it says my username and password aren’t in the system. Very aggravating when I just want to read the new issue on the go.
Can’t log in 1/5
I can’t log in with any username or password. This app is worthless.
Too many bugs 1/5
Paid for the subscription and the app doesn’t accept my new membership and staying I have restrictions. I guess I’ll stick to the browser
Won’t even log me in 1/5
I love the magazine but this app is terrible, I can log in to the website and read my issues there but when I try using the app I can’t even log in, it says my account doesn’t exist even though it clearly does.
Can’t log in 1/5
Won’t let me log in on mobile app
Can't purchase anything 1/5
Horrible app. You can't purchase anything!
I can sign into the gameinformer website just fine but when I try to sign into this app it tells me I’m not authorized. This is such a joke.
Crashes all the time 1/5
I’m subscribed and opted for the application. It took way too long to download the issues and when I try to open it crashes! So I have a subscription and can’t read none of the issues.
Not User Friendly 1/5
For a gaming and technology magazine their app is garbage. I found it to be virtually impossible to connect my subscription to my online account. Then I was unable to connect that online account to the app. Pretty disappointing coming from a gaming magazine that I really do enjoy reading.
Always Crashes for iPhone 1/5
I never make it more than 2 pages into any issue and the app crashes. It’s been like this for months.
Failure to Launch 1/5
This app has a lot of potential. When it works, it works well. However, there are several issues under my subscription that force the app to close without any error messages. It doesn’t matter if I remove it and find missing issues. Either way, certain issues cause a crash. If this can be fixed I would gladly give it a 5 Star. In its current state, it is too frustrating.
Lags out every time i try to read a magazine!!!
Broken mess 1/5
Almost completely unresponsive or will crash after a long delay. This app is worthless as it is. I am unable to read my paid for subscriptions.
I renewed my subscription but I don’t get the new issues when they appear I tried 2 ways delete the app an logged out.....
2.3 fixes issues 4/5
Newest revision fixed a glaring issue with the UI. It’s a great mag with nice exclusives and good articles that make for fine think pieces on gaming and its industry. The awesome covers make me long for the days when I received physical copies, but I appreciate how I have all my issues at my fingertips (or with an easy download).
By Ethan Campbell brown
Please fix where the pages keep turning back. I’m reading or scrolling and it automatically flips to the previous page. I love GI. Please fix and I’ll give it 5 stars.
Crashes on iPhone X 1/5
Just got the new version. Still crashes as soon as you hit “read” on an iPhone X. I will not be renewing my subscription.
Waste of (life, time, money) 1/5
By DJ:JR Burrows
Thought I’d be cool with my iPad and read all the latest gaming news. Not only does this app not work, it denies you from logging in most of the time. Go on, try calling for help. You’ll get the dumbest person whom ever existed on the other end (after over an hour of holding). Save yourself the headache and kill a tree... stick to the print
Filled with bugs. 1/5
App crashes trying to delete old issues. Have to call support every year when I renew because this app can’t recognize I’m still a subscriber. GameStop/GameInformer should be embarrassed to have their name associated with this program.
Misdirected hate in the Reviews—App and content 5/5 5/5
By Sparky Guru
I don’t understand why this app is rated so poorly. The only thing I can think of is that Gameinformer is receiving a lot of misdirected Gamestop hate.
I am running this app on the newest version of iOS on an iPad Pro 9.7 inch and the digital magazine is beautiful. 99% of the complaints users have about Navigation is resolved if you read the User Interface Demo that pops up after opening the app for the first time. To address one complaint I’m seeing pop up in a lot of reviews: to back out of an issue and access the main menu again, tap and lightly hold the screen and the User Interface will pop up. The demo is also available for access at any time in the “help” tab in case if you forget the gesture controls.
I have had absolutely no issues running this app. Magazines download fine, pages turn beautifully, the scroll feature works great, imbedded videos and their sound play seamlessly. There have been zero crashes with my use over the past year since switching to digital.
As far as the content of the magazines — no, these are not PDF copies of the print magazines. All of the text is there, but the arrangement is catered to being on a digital device and digital users actually get MORE than people receiving print magazines. For each game or event mentioned, you get direct links to view additional previews, reviews, and features on the Gameinformer website. You even get direct links to purchase games from game-stop—should you choose to purchase games from there. Imbedded videos are wonderful. When I see a new game that I’m interested in, a lot of times Gameinformer will have a trailer right there on the page for me to watch at that exact moment.
My experience with this app has been incredibly user friendly. Images, videos, and sound are beautiful on my iPad and I don’t regret switching my subscription to digital. Also, I really enjoy the high quality editorial presentation of the features. The writing is adept and packed with information. We live in a world where we get news every second of every day, so monthly magazines are struggling to compete. Gameinformer is succeeding in maintaining relevance through this app.
Just Bad 1/5
Haven’t been able to link my subscription or read an issue without paying for the issue again in over a year! The worst part is that the company just doesn’t care. No one has bothered to update this app since it launched.
Poorly made 1/5
By French Toast FT
I love the idea of the app but there are way too many bugs for me to remotely enjoy using it. A lot of reviews say they can't back out of a issue, which I've never had any problems with (just press and hold on the middle of a page and it will give you the option to back out), but I've had major problems with things as simple as turning pages. I will turn the page and it will get stuck half way and it won't let me continue turning or reading. I have to turn back a page and go forward again about 4/5 times before it skips the page I want to goto and then I can back into the page in order to read it. Also the purchase and other links at the problem are generally buggy. It won't actually launch the site but instead, it will just sit there and act like I never pressed it.
Also the biggest issue I have is that I can't load some issues that are in my library. I have a subscription, and yet it won't let me read the issue unless I spend $5 to buy it individually. I am currently having that issue with my monster hunter world December 2017 issue.
If you have the choice to get the physical copy, do that instead. The app has been broken forever and a day and no one's doing anything to fix issues that have been around since the app launched.
iPhone 4 stars/iPad 1. 2/5
Works great on the iPhone even though issues take forever to Download. However I find it useless on the iPad. Who buys a iPad to read a magazine in landscape rotation? Every other magazine on earth is in portrait.
Doesnt work 1/5
I click download and it just stays at 0% forever. I have force closed, restarted, reinstalled app and ofc made sure my subscription is current. Very frustrating.
I see what this app has two stars 1/5
By DeVante D
I can't find out how to get back to he main library without closing and reopening the app a thousand times.
Great mag, horrid app 1/5
Downloading the app takes forever like 10 to 20 minutes or more and if u multitask while it downloads it stops n u gotta start all over again. Get the paper backs.
This App is Horrible 1/5
I went to GameStop and i always turn down the pro membership. I know I was going to be purchasing the Switch and Xbox One X this year, so I joined to earn points. I was also interested in the game informer magazine. So, I downloaded the app in attempts to view the magazine. It NEVER happened. I was never able to link my subscription! I called the help line and they reset my account and it still didn't work. Also, the help line takes $20 minutes to get in touch with a rep. Don't waste your money!
