Currently useless's Review of Future Music

Reviewed on 1/15/20 12:57 PM

I purchased the latest issue. It got hung up downloading and just says waiting. When I close the app and re-open the purchase button is back. When it try to purchase it tells me I already own it and gets hung up on waiting again. So far it is unreadable which makes this app currently useless.

Good magazine, buggy software

alarmed7781's Review of Future Music

Reviewed on 1/15/20 12:57 PM

'complete your collection' purchase option doesn't work (linked from the back of each issue) - and it is not available on the main store page on iPad3 (although in others like Total Guitar, it is). It works on iPhone5. Some videos don't not work. I have reported it to them last year, but the same videos that had issues before, still do. Jody Wisternoff interview in Aug 2012 will not play and others

Great content, crap app

The content of the magazine is great, but the app crashes a lot, is slow and not really interactive. I think it deserves better technology.

Good!

Had this for a year or more and am VERY satisfied. Great publication and great app. Far better than some of the others I've tried.

Disapointing

You'd expect to be able to tap on an story title in the table of contents and be zoomed to the article of your desire. Nope. As well, all url's within stories are not hyperlinked. And, there is no sound coming from the embedded videos. I want this iPad version of the magazine to work and be the interactive experience it should be at nearly $5 a pop. Hurry up!

Great magazine, but peak at table of contents needed

Ignore the large number of 1-star reviews here. Folks don't understand how Newsstand works (and pricing is up to the publisher, not Apple) and think they're going to get free magazine issues. Gimme a break. This magazine is hard to find where I live, so having the digital version is very convenient (I miss not getting the extra goodies that often come with the printed version). It's a UK-based magazine, so you'll see some differences in how content is written. Overall, very valuable magazine for electronic musicians and those who record at home. One suggestion: it would be nice if there was a way for us to view the table of contents of each issue before buying. I don't expect full pages for free…just the topics covered. Some issues may not be useful to me, so I like to buy a la carte, not subscription. But Newsstand doesn't seem to allow publishers to show off an issue's contents page. Need a fix there. Otherwise, 4 solid stars for a great magazine worth paying for.

App Runs Slow

Had a hard time even purchasing an issue on iPhone 4s and restoring older purchases. I have yet to see a video thru the app. Great potential but def not there yet.

The best

The Uncanny Valley's Review of Future Music

Reviewed on 1/15/20 12:57 PM

I've been reading Future Music since 1999 when I worked for Barnes & Noble bookstores in the US. They have the best blend of informative essays, reviews, tutorials and insightful interviews in my opinion. They're not Mix or Sound On Sound, nor are they meant to be. Future Music & Computer Music are more about the artists & producers and how they work, in turn, that which works for fans too. I have 28 issues on my iPad alone without ever having any problems. Highly recommended!
