This should be a favorite app, since I love magazines on my iPad and I love Imbibe. Unfortunately, the text is fuzzy when reading in landscape unless zoomed in, it almost looked as if the last bit of progressive rendering hasn't filled in. I'm also disappointed as a print subscriber not to have any options other than paying full price for the iPad edition.

Horrible won't work with iOS 8 on iPad retina

Please fix this will work with iPhone 5s but not iPad retina. Terrible experience.

No digital subscription with print

Same as everyone else, I'm a print subscriber. I won't pay for a digital one, too.

Poor digital Experience; Broken in iOS8

I love the content, but reading images of print pages is a terrible experience. Also, I haven't been able to open the app on my iPad3 since iOS8.

Laughable

Dspn's Review of Imbibe Magazine

Reviewed on 9/17/19 1:40 PM

I don't know if it's a limitation of the pixel mags format or a business decision by imbibe. But there is no excuse not to make the digital version free with a print subscription. I was given the print edition as a gift and downloaded the app, excited to try it out, only to find no option to link up my subscription, and no explanation in any of the support material or on Imbibe's website. Coming from years of happy reading of Wired in print and on tablets, this just seems archaic and capricious.

Poor Service

Brandt McCammon's Review of Imbibe Magazine

Reviewed on 9/17/19 1:40 PM

I can't seem to figure out whether I can receive the digital subscription with a print subscription. Judging from the comments I am assuming I cannot. I tried to contact pixelmags about this issue and they couldn't have been less helpful or more rude.

Big disappointment

I have had a print subscription to this mag since its inception. I can't believe I would have to pay to read it on my phone! Boo!

Forced to purchase?

Reviewed on 9/17/19 1:40 PM

Love the magazine, but since the software update its now asking me to purchase this months magazine even though I have a current subscription. They have a couple of days to figure it out or I'm canceling my auto renew.

Huge Disappointment

lapresle's Review of Imbibe Magazine

Reviewed on 9/17/19 1:40 PM

For some reason, my review didn't appear. I wrote the piece above because I realized I didn't touch on the content. My previous review dealt with the interface. Its just not good. They deleted all back issues from my library with the promise that they'll reappear in the future. Why not just wait until they're all online before switching over? Secondly, there is a new feature or section in the app called "Live" and it's got all this content that iPad/iPhone users can't access because it's Flash based. I guess since they created the app for the app store and iPads only account for 75% of the market, they thought… I can't imagine why they went to the trouble to do it. Anyhow, I think it's a waste of money considering it's in addition to your print subscription. Just buy the magazine.

Impractical

crh1989's Review of Imbibe Magazine

Reviewed on 9/17/19 1:40 PM

I'm a long time reader of imbibe magazine, and I've always been a fan of the content, but it is unfortunately very difficult to consume in this context. The app will only allow you to zoom in a small amount, making it all but impossible to read an article comfortably. If this was fixed, I'd happily give this app 5 stars.
