Not just the magazine you want to read
by theydontwamtreviews on 2021/02/25 12:14
You will be continuously bombarded with ads for their upgraded service and “1000s of magazine titles” — I didn’t want thousands of magazines — just one title I love to read, in a clean, accessible interface. They’ve made digital reading an abilities chore.

Unkept offers

Magzter continuously promotes subscription offers with not way for the customer to access them.
Too much restriction on non gold

Continuous push to buy Gold even when my employer paid....
Don’t get this app rip off
by lindablando on 2021/02/04 19:56
My credit card was charged 3 times. 9.99 twice and 49.99 once Still do not have access to any magazines or any information. It blocks me and asked me to pay for the reading material. It says I’m not a gold member. When I tried to email them they said my device is not set up for email. Although I use email on that device every day.
Very nice
by Arvindrao42 on 2021/02/02 07:57
Very very nice app excellent. On this app I am getting so many magazines and newspapers. Some magazines which I never heard that magazines I can read now. Very very nice app
Gold Trial Doesn’t Work
by Country Tune on 2021/01/16 20:50
Like the other reviewer below, I tried the 7-day free trial to Magzter Gold to see if I would like the content and ease of access to it. After verifying my info through Apple and getting a verification email, I kept getting an error message telling me I did not have a Magzter Gold account and could not access the magazines I wanted to read. VERY frustrating! Sure not a good way to get new subscribers!
Gold subscription issues
by daveb1971 on 2021/01/14 03:16
I wanted to try the seven-day free trial to Magzter Gold to see how I liked the content and the app. However, after verifying my info through Apple and getting a verification email, I kept getting an error telling me that I don’t have a valid Gold subscription. I then sent an email to customer support and I was told I would get a response with 48-72 hours. In other words, the seven-day free trial is more like four or five days (at best). Sounds like another scam and I won’t be wasting any more time. I’ll just stick with Apple New Plus as it works like a charm without any drama.
Billed and Not getting the service
by AD Penn Hills 4 Life on 2021/01/13 09:20
I am currently being billed for $3.99 for a subscription to Black Enterprise. I have not seen or had access to the digital subscription. The worst part is finding someone to contact about it. Very poor app!
Depends on what you want to see.
by WltDavisII on 2021/01/10 11:59
Some mags are original some are modified to meet certain social standards and content is removed. More of an apple issue than a magzter issue.
EVE
by VENUS42610 on 2021/01/09 02:16
I’m not Dennis My name is EVELYN DE JESUS AND MY ACCOUNT ITS UNDER MY NANE EVELYN DE JESUS It’s not true that you have access to more than 5,000 magazines for $9.99 a month That’s a big lie, I don’t recommend this magazines
Not USA titles
by emjay159 on 2021/01/02 13:22
Most of the popular English language magazines are the Canadian, English or Indian version not US. And you can’t filter on county only language. Also you can’t tell until you open it up and start reading. It’s pretty annoying especially if you end up liking a product or recipe. There are really only about 10 decent US titles not the thousands they claim to have. They should just be honest and up front about what their product offers.
Can’t sign in on app
by I like trying new carriers. on 2020/12/21 00:53
I can’t sign into my account on the app. The menu “buttons” are not responsive and you might want to include a link on your web app when to the Apple and google App Store.
Some good titles and many mediocre magazines
by Shiva RK on 2020/12/15 02:31
I subscribed as Magzter showed number of quality magazines. However upon subscription, I found there are many mediocre magazines and rest of good magazines need extra payment.
Most magazines require additional subscription
by Ssukesh on 2020/12/14 11:56
Please fix this soon.
Arnaque
by hjklfert on 2020/12/11 06:24
L’app fait croire que tous les magazines sont inclus dans l’offre mais il faut payer pour la majorité. Ne perdez pas votre argent Don’t waste your money - the app makes you think you are getting more magazines than you will have access to
Terrible App
by Lycan Master on 2020/12/10 13:39
I bought magazines - verified thru Apple Pay and never received the magazines Total scam - customer service never responded after sending them proof of the purchase

Terrible App. Doesn’t work at all
iOS app is terrible
by Marcmen on 2020/11/29 01:03
It takes over a week to download 1 magazine
Annoyed
by Derrickjay on 2020/11/27 18:11
I purchased the “Gold” subscription through Apple but Magzter keeps denying my access saying that the payment didn’t go through, although I have confirmed it with Apple subscriptions (per account instructions) and have receipt of payment. I can’t really speak on the app quality because I CANNOT ACCESS IT!
Subscription doesn’t give access warning
by iReview35 on 2020/11/27 01:47
Paid for yearly but app does’t give access. Tried the monthly option also and still doesn’t work. If you want access create an account on the magzter website and pay there instead and it works fine. I will be requesting a refund from apple. Dev must not want to have apple as middle man so buyer beware if purchasing through the app store, use the magzter website instead.
Problem?!
by Mšhārī £: on 2020/11/23 22:00
I downloaded from 2 days and start free trail ( 7 days ) now but it is not working and say to me "you are not subscribing in gold" ?? I canceled free trail because it is not working , This app so bad.. close it or fix it 🤨
My missing books.

I am concerned about my priceless digital books I bought on this App which are lost to me. I am seriously looking for those books. Anything to have them will be appreciated.
Picture & account renewal
by jrmanwani on 2020/10/28 23:51
This application does not allow u to take picture , where in Apple news allows u to take pictures, This application has a auto renewal even if you don’t want , even if u send them a email to stop the renewal u will not get a reply ... Better stay with Apple news ...
Great app
by JoeCapez on 2020/10/21 13:04
Magzter is amazing. A great service filled with may mags for all the family.
Scam
by skytheguy1987 on 2020/10/08 21:50
I have been suscriben for several months, however, I can’t open any magazines!!!!
I give up
by RLLatta on 2020/10/06 23:44
It was good when it worked right. I have had a Gold subscription for a long time, but there have been several times the app has suddenly dropped my membership, and I have to contact customer service to get it back. Lately, it does it every month, and customer service makes me provide them a receipt each time before they restore the subscription. It did it again today, so I cancelled my Gold subscription. Going with Apple News+ instead.
Not as advertised
by Bowey36 on 2020/10/04 19:26
Misleading and not as advertised. I paid for a year and then saw I would have to pay for other mags if I wanted. What a ripoff. I got a refund. Disappointing and definitely not recommended
Scam
by kidinacandystore415 on 2020/10/01 14:10
Advertises that they can give you 5,000 + magazines to read. The majority of them are useless. Most all credible magazines they list require you to buy a regular subscription to read. In some cases, the price you would pay through Magzter is more expensive than if you order directly from the publisher. What a scam. Been waiting 2 weeks to get back my promised payment. UPDATE: See the developers boiler plate, lame response to my negative review. A marketing pitch but no answer to my complaints. After 10 emails over 2 weeks I still haven’t received my refund on the 7 day “trial” even though I cancelled the subscription the 2nd day. It’s a fraudulent scam and my credit card company is investigating. Run, don’t stop and buy this worthless piece of junk. The 2 founders are nothing but con artists and should be investigated for deceptive advertising and fraud. Apple needs to get their act together and remove losers apps like this from the store.
Don’t do it!
by Tiana =^..^= on 2020/09/13 14:17
Don’t sign up for a GOLD trial subscription - the option to cancel it doesn’t work, some of the magazines don’t even load and they’ll take your money before bothering to reply to a mail and letting you cancel. I’ve been waiting days for a response and still no valid option to cancel. It’s a hoax to steal your money!
No real offline download!!! Scam!!!
by 9thShadow on 2020/09/09 19:20
Need internet to read your downloads!!! So don’t bother subscribing! No internet no mags! Constantly have to find internet to just read my downloads! Does not keep my purchases on my iPad or phone app!!! DISGUSTED WITH THIS SCAM AND INCONVENIENCE!!! Sept 9, 2020 Still the same hastle! Now issue #4 isn't opening. Still having to download what's rightfully mine. No real sustainable permanent download for offline viewing or storage.
No way to cancel subscription
by Chuckeh on 2020/09/09 02:23
There is no way to cancel my subscription. The website and app don’t have a way to cancel subscription. It just sits there and says it’s loading but never loads the page. This is a horrible app.
Hard to read
by Angry in Africa on 2020/09/08 03:08
I wish I had never subscribed through you I can’t get it in a text format
Bad interface
by malmulla on 2020/08/12 13:45
The annual subscription with discount is cheap, but otherwise the app design and interface is really bad. Not easy to find the latest issues of your favourite magazine. A redesign focussed on what the reader actually wants to read will be great.
Very good
by اوحلي on 2020/08/08 10:33
Great app , National Geographic Arabic
Annual plan doesn’t work
by Syappi on 2020/08/04 05:47
I subscribed and still can only preview the magazines. This is apparently a common problem if you Google it and they’ve even been reported to the Better Business Bureau. But they can’t seem to figure out this bug. Watch out!
Gold but not gold
by cjay212 on 2020/08/03 13:44
Even though I paid for a Gold subscription, I am prompted to pay for a subscription after I log in and with every magazine choice I make. And if I select a subscription option while trying to open magazines, I am told I already have an active subscription. What am I doing wrong??
Definitely a bad buy
by nayanabeauty on 2020/08/02 15:40
The ads are very tempting - thousands of magazines available to read. The reality is very different. Innumerable magazines require additional subscriptions which are not cheap - they are far more expensive than direct subscription with the magazine. The interface is not very intelligent. From the table of contents of a magazine, you cannot navigate to the story. Something one can do in a simple ppt or pdf. Zoom is rather limited even on the browser version. All in all - I will not be continuing this subscription.
Can’t Cancel Subcription!!
by Jinandout28 on 2020/07/27 01:13
I did the free 7 day trial and now I am trying to cancel it but it would not allow me! I saw online that I can cancel it through Apple iTunes, but Magzter doesn’t even show up as one of my subscriptions! Also, the “Manage Subscription” on the Magzter website does not even work! It kept loading for 30 minutes and nothing popped up! To the developers of Magzter, please fix this immediately! I just saw many reviews about this and it seems like you guys have not taken steps in improving this! I have already emailed the company and hopefully they will respond soon because this is just unbelievable!
Everything is edited.
by No name is available so die on 2020/07/14 06:26
All the magazines available through the gold membership are edited.

Not happy
by magsterblows on 2020/06/26 03:56
Just purchased 2 magazines this evening and neither of them showed up on my purchased list. Of course, I was still charged for them. Not happy. Get your act together.
Ripoff City
by #magsterripoff on 2020/06/21 19:35
Do NOT give them your credit card info! Once they get your monthly payment “cancel at any time” becomes a worthless phrase to them. I’ve been trying to cancel for three months to no avail. No good don’t buy!
App crashes Not worth. Very irresponsible team
by BRNS... on 2020/06/18 04:50
I have iPad and I have installed the latest ios too. But the app crashes the moment I open news papaer such as "The Businessline" or any other news papaer. This I am facing last 3 months. I have also deleted the app and reinstalled it. I have informed 1 month back by Mail also. I was promised rectification in few days. After that new version on iPad has come but still it crashes. Not worth the subscription if you want to read on iPad
Hopeless
by Mah0511 on 2020/06/09 02:00
After taking money, many newspapers are missing. The only response is “ we value feedback and do mail us”. Even if you mail nothing happens. Papers like the Hindu, business line, live mint , the new Indian express all have vanished off the shelf. It is obvious that this is cheating for a gold subscriber. Taking money and then removing magazines and papers is fraud. Will file a suit in court
Not great
by marie196834 on 2020/06/07 10:01
A lot of outdated magazines and yes over 5k magazines but these include old issues that are no longer available or ones where you still have to pay. Will stick to Readly and Apple+
Most of the popular magazines like Time, Newsweek etc are not included
by USA-NRI-all on 2020/05/26 00:59
Very disappointed. Wherever I click, most of the popular US magazines like Time, Newsweek etc are not free / not included.
Have not been able to access anything
by 2crackerj on 2020/05/17 23:04
I am still in my free trial and as yet, have not been able to read any of Magzter’s articles or magazines. When I try to read a magazine I get a message that my subscription rents in June but doesn’t let me read anything. I’m going to have to cancel my subscription.
Good reading App

best magazine content in all language
Even the bad reviews are fake. THIS APP IS TRASH!
by ka7130630 on 2020/04/29 16:38
DO NOT GET THIS APP!!! I was offered a free subscription and my card is being charged $9.99. There is no phone number to call customer service. I see the charges on my bank account but when I go on the Magzter app it says I have no purchase history. It says the same on my Apple ID so this is definitely a scam and I want my money back. I will not allow them to withdraw money on my account every month for this garbage app with outdated magazines. And the reviews are fake, even the bad ones because every criticism is followed with slight praise. They’re not fooling me one bit
EzRead

WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO TO YOUR SITE?!?
by Gobin56 on 2020/04/22 01:55
What is wrong with this site? I reloaded the site because I lost all the magazines in my collection; now I can’t restore ANYTHING (as of April 21st.) Now I can not only read the site-only magazines but have also lost magazines I have PURCHASED! Every dollar I spent purchasing books and magazines on your site I HAVE LOST!! Do you not understand why I am pi$$ed?!? I will make this as short as I can - FIX THE SITE OR I WILL DROP MY SUBSCRIPTION AND FILE A COMPLAINT WITH APPLE APPS AND THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU!!!
No way to unsubscribe
by The Big Sister on 2020/04/12 15:48
Tried to find a way to unsubscribe so I wouldn’t get charged $99.99 for another years worth of service. I can not find a way to unsubscribe on the app or through iTunes subscriptions. Beware of signing up for this service. I will contact my bank tomorrow to stop payment of the charges taken out of my account today.
Awesome app

Cannot Cancel Free Trial
by ecin333 on 2020/04/01 15:49
DO NOT sign up, it is impossible to cancel the free trial. There isn’t a straightforward cancellation option nor is there a phone number to call for support.
Really great but one major flaw
by Bendeegaga on 2020/03/31 13:02
I love this app. Except for one thing. I am a Gold subscriber but every time I open the app it asks me if I want to be a Gold subscriber. Really annoying and no way (that I can see) of turning it off.
Some magazines but not all of them
by louis69jc on 2020/03/30 03:13
When I considered whether to get the subscription or not I assumed that I would get all the major magazines out there but they don’t tell you that you won’t. After signing up I was surprised that I didn’t get the ones I really wanted instead I get most of unpopular ones. Very disappointed.
MISLEADING - I Want my Money Back
by StopTheSpamEmailsPlease on 2020/03/27 09:57
Magster claims their Magster Gold subscription will provide access to 5000 magazines, and because it includes thumbnails of of all popular magazines I thought I would have access to these. Instead, only obscure magazines are included. As for the popular ones, Magster just gives access to a 5 page “preview” teaser after which you have to purchase a separate subscription to each magazine to see more. Even worse, Magster is now sending me annoying notifications hyping stories in these non-included magazines. Since I am not interested in the magazines included in Magster Gold and I do not want to spend more money on additional subscriptions I could have just bought directly from the magazines themselves, pretty much all my $49 bought me is more Magster ads. Big waste of money. NOT CLASSY! I want my money back.
Need to cancel
by tongueking on 2020/03/21 00:25
Please tell me me how I can cancel my subscription.
Misleading and a hassle.
by hgyrdvjuedghyfv on 2020/02/20 17:52
Gold subscription was advertised as unlimited access but it is a pathetic selection of magazines. I tried to cancel the auto renewing membership but had no way to do so myself and had to send an email to customer support. Who knows if I will get an answer. Don’t waste your time.
Great Resource
by RobJWheeler on 2020/02/14 17:56
Magzter is a fantastic resource for magazines, news, clips etc. if it isn’t here I don’t think it is anywhere!👍🏻
Too few quality free magazines.
by paulmock on 2020/01/31 20:42
Nice app. Easy to use. But far too few big name and quality magazines at no additional charge.
Not all mags are free with subscription
by peacefulruler on 2020/01/21 14:59
Many business magazines are $29.99 to subscribers within the app. The app is great but your yearly fee may not get you what you’re really after. If you only want specific magazines then the yearly fee might be better spent on those magazines directly.
Prompts with no solutions in sight. Arrogant support
by itsSoldier on 2020/01/21 05:45
Kindly review all of your pop up alerts. Do they guide you to resolve the issue. NO.
I CANCELLED it within minutes. [30 Day Trial]
by f obama on 2020/01/21 03:59
First magazine I looked for they don’t have [Dirt Bike]. Not interested in the non USA editions or other similar sounding mags. Second mag I looked for they didn’t have either. I cancelled immediately so I wouldn’t forget & get charged $10/month.
Good app but
by Osiittoo !!! on 2020/01/16 09:17
It’s great app I’m not gone lie it help me a lot about health magazine . , but if Im paying for gold at least uncensored the adult magazines. It look weird when is bad photoshopped or when it vanished. Please fix that or charge a little more on the adult magazine that will be totally uncensored... Thank you very much.
Last update not working in ios with company license
by Jatzibe on 2020/01/12 03:41
Hi! The company I work for gave us a license which we sign in with our corporate accounts (SSO), and since last update in ios is not working anymore, only on androids. Please help, I used to read the magazines in my iPad.
Why bother?
by galactanoran on 2020/01/07 08:27
Why am I paying $10 a month for an app that makes me buy magazines in the app? When I had a subscription to Texture I was able to read all of the magazines they offered.
No help
by jls1942 on 2020/01/06 02:36
I should have shared access but can not get access to magazines and have not been able to get any help response
Not getting proper access
by #%~<> on 2019/12/27 04:30
Purchased Gold subscription but keep being told that I need to buy it again or pay for individual magazines.
Buggy, does not work
by philgriffusmc on 2019/12/22 10:29
I have tried for the last hour and am exhausted. I downloaded and subscribed to the 1 month free of “gold” but have not been able to access anything at all. I uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times with no luck. I contacted the customer support email so waiting on a response. Beyond that just exploring the app and clicking things they are buggy and often do now work as intended. Also the layout of the account and setting are very odd.
Buyer beware
by Ajpendo on 2019/12/21 16:25
Be aware that you cannot get a refund once paid and locked in for a year. So far I have also been unable to reset password and login. I am therefore paying for a year for content I cannot access.
Good when it opens correctly
by mikesmail1 on 2019/12/18 14:02
After purchasing this app. It only works on one of my devices. It keeps asking me to repurchase it on others. So it still has a ways to go. Loading takes a while even on a 100mb network. Once loaded the app works great.
Magster
by Matt from Schuyler on 2019/12/13 04:31
Awesome app, easy to use.
Waste of money
by Rakesh999 on 2019/12/09 03:15
The major us magazines are not part of subscription. They want you to pay for those magazines separately. All the free magazines they have in gold subscription are the ones that you never want to read anyway. They are all international magazines in other languages. I emailed them to downgrade my subscription from family sharing to individual - I’m still waiting for their reply You will be better off with Apple news plus if you want to read all the standard USA magazines.
BUYER BEWARE! FALSE ADVERTISING
by Loves2shopsales on 2019/12/06 23:25
I purchased a year of Magzter Gold in advance only to realize you can only get the “B” grade magazines to view. If you want to view the “A” grade - just think of any like Oprah Magazine, The New Yorker, Glamour, Vogue, People, Variety, etc. you get the picture you have to subscribe to them. You’re better off going to Apple News or Readly. I’m waiting from them to see if I can can get a refund on on credit card ASAP
Update is crashing in IPhone 11

This is the biggest bait and switch scam in the history of the world
by markfeil on 2019/12/02 02:44
They advertise access to 5000+ magazines, but after I became a member I found that nearly all of those I was interested in are available for purchase from those publishers for the price of a regular subscription. They are not included with my membership in Magzter. Fortunately, they have a one week free trial after you give them your credit card number so you can request a refund, which you will likely do. Unfortunately, this refund will take up to 30 days to process! Don’t bother with this app. Remember the old saying – if it seems too good to be true it probably is? It is! Don’t waste your time!
Doesn’t work
by tasha32217 on 2019/11/14 00:31
Doesn’t do anything but tell me I don’t have a subscription. Don’t waste your time
Total Misrepresentation
by Dini_sg on 2019/11/12 17:12
If you are a US reader do not use this App. The App touts the largest digital collection. Here’s the reality - little to NO mainstream domestic lifestyle, fashion, home, beauty etc. magazines are in included - they all require additional subscription/issue fees. AND I bought the all-in subscription for year!!!!!! The magazines that are included are the type you find at hotels or free magazines. The highend magazines Vogue, Elle, Glamour etc. are versions from Philippines, South Africa, India etc. and some are very old i.e. 2015. Magazines like US market Glamour, Vougue, Glamour, Elle, Marie Claire Real Simple, Oprah, People, Martha Stewart, Shape require additional subscription/issue fees. Total Misrepresentation!!!
Deceiving
by descieved on 2019/11/04 19:11
Does not make clear that you are paying 9.99 per month to buy individual subscriptions to magazine. Who needs that ? Also make it extremely difficult and unclear how to cancel subscription. Deceiving !
Amazing app
by SeemaMirchandani on 2019/11/03 15:13
Amazing app especially love the Indian magazines don&#39;t get time due to work but will surly take sundays and beach reading together
Bunch of fraudsters
by Kingy8578 on 2019/10/27 15:44
Cannot get out of an auto-rewel. Stay well clear unless you want to be locked into a subscription for the rest of you life!
Bad Time Management
by AS Radhakrishnan on 2019/10/25 02:38
The app promises to deliver thousands of magazines but cannot manage the simple task of uploading the newspaper in time. The newspaper print comes home by 7am IST but the digital copy is still not uploaded. Some newspapers load some don’t. Also the app needs to get rid of the crappy magazines which are no longer published like futures daily
Useless app
by MimiJ1023 on 2019/10/22 22:06
Should have known when there is no contact information app is usually garbage. Signed up and received nothing. App won’t work. Contacting credit card company to disallow
I already have an account.
by Kadeegirl on 2019/10/21 05:13
My name is T.Gail Chavis. I already have an account with Magzter, on my phone. I just got a new IPad, and wanted to have the best of both worlds. I just don’t want to be charged twice. Some how the company was going to charge me twice , when I put the app on my old IPad. I didn’t want to use it at the time because I didn’t want to be charged twice. I believe that won’t happen again. I look forward to enjoying your product for many years. Sincerely , T.Gail Chavis
No Unlimited Access
by scifichic77 on 2019/10/20 06:25
My unlimited access is not unlimited. Only some magazine titles are available as unlimited. Most of the titles that are ‘free to read’ are magazines I’ve never even heard of. Most of the popular titles I want to read are asking me to pay a subscription fee on top of the monthly fee I’m already being charged on a monthly basis. Really? Come on, man. I won’t renew.
Have to pay extra for some magazines
by pitmama71 on 2019/10/19 21:08
When I seen the ad in Apple Magazine, read that for $9.99 unlimited magazines, yes there are a lot of magazines included in the monthly subscription but majority of the magazines I’m interested in have to pay extra so this app isn’t worth it because you pay the same if you just subscribe to the magazines you want.
Free trial issues
by Painter Jane on 2019/10/12 17:33
I got the gold trial membership and it won’t allow me to read magazines. Only samples.
not worth it
by not it isn't on 2019/10/06 12:39
Had I known most of the magazines I’d like to read require further purchases,I would not have paid $49.99 for a yearly subscription.And don’t bother writing the developer.They send you the same response they send everyone and don’ care what you think.
Great value, terrible UI
by ChrisParker12 on 2019/10/02 18:08
Great price and replacement for the awful Apple News app. But the UI on the devices and website, are really bad. The interface just does not work properly.
Not what I expected
by design enthusist on 2019/09/29 05:50
I have been disappointed since I signed up. I have been a member of other magazine services and this one has the worst selection for the fee. I complained the first month and was promised more would be added as they build library. That has not been the case. . So far, a majority of magazines I’m interested in, are available at extra fee only and not part of the included monthly membership fee. It’s Not worth it. I can get access for less money else where, and will be cancelling this soon.
Very disreputable company.
by scottc06 on 2019/09/15 18:08
I purchased a Woodcraft Magazine subscription by mistake. Went in and tried to cancel the subscription and receive a refund the same day. I tried three times to contact them to fix this problem. They told me they would get back to me. They did not do this. They have my money. And I do not want this magazine. Please do not do business with this company.
Good but can be better
by Apple3gs on 2019/01/14 19:07
While the interface works well on iPhone and iPad, the web interface is little clunky. Barring these missing features, I think this is a great value: * no sync across devices - I have an iPhone as well as an iPad and if I read a magazine on one device, the app on other device should continue from where I left off. * favorites organization is severely lacking - I have many magazines as favorite and I can only see magazines in the order I added them. There should be some way to sort/group items * there is no visible download queue and the downloads stop when the app is in the background. I usually like to download few magazines before I leave for a trip but have to keep waiting for the downloads to finish. There is no easy way to know if the downloads have finished so I have to remember the last magazine I put in the queue and see if it is done

Not clearly explained
by Kyhobbit on 2019/07/09 15:52
I tried a 30 day free trial for gold service. Unlimited access to a wide variety of magazines. Liked it so decided to subscribe to gold service. What is very unclear with this service is the unlimited acess to all magazines does not apply once your free trial is over. You pay $9.99 a month for a store front to purchase any magazines you are interested in. It is presented as a Netflix for magazines for one price but it is not. Feel this is very misrepresented. Won’t be paying for another month subscription. Update: was told via email from Magzter customer service, reason I could not access magazines was they had no record of me purchasing their $9.99 plan. I paid through my apple account. Money was taken to pay for Magzter. I ended up requesting a refund from apple. Apple being the awesome company they are gave me my refund. Can’t recommend Magzter. (Loved Magzter form letter response to any issues users having)
Scam
by kidinacandystore415 on 2020/10/01 14:10
Advertises that they can give you 5,000 + magazines to read. The majority of them are useless. Most all credible magazines they list require you to buy a regular subscription to read. In some cases, the price you would pay through Magzter is more expensive than if you order directly from the publisher. What a scam. Been waiting 2 weeks to get back my promised payment. UPDATE: See the developers boiler plate, lame response to my negative review. A marketing pitch but no answer to my complaints. After 10 emails over 2 weeks I still haven’t received my refund on the 7 day “trial” even though I cancelled the subscription the 2nd day. It’s a fraudulent scam and my credit card company is investigating. Run, don’t stop and buy this worthless piece of junk. The 2 founders are nothing but con artists and should be investigated for deceptive advertising and fraud. Apple needs to get their act together and remove losers apps like this from the store.
C’mon Magzter, really???
by bdhdiebxbfkdkxbfhwjfh on 2018/10/17 12:41
So I read some of the negative reviews but figured I would try out the free version. I really liked what I saw. I immediately accepted the offer for the Gold account, which was free for 30 days, but requires you to allow the monthly billing through iTunes. So you have to go into iTunes settings if you want to prevent charges after the 30 day trial period. OK, I get that. Spent some time reading and was happy with the choices I had. 12 hours later, Magzter is telling me I don’t have a Gold account. I’ve read other reviews with similar complaints with responses from the company. Obviously, the company either doesn’t care or doesn’t have the know-how or expertise to fix the problem. Think about this, Magzter: what if your readers contact the magazine publishers that you carry and let them know that your faulty app is giving their magazines a bad rap? Do you understand what I’m saying?
Subscription Issue
by Ging Raye on 2018/09/24 22:38
I am unable to contact customer support as there is not a phone number or preferably, an email address to contact them. Today, I was offered a 7 day free trial to Magzter Gold and I took them up on it, signed up, etc. Then I went to download the app to another device and as soon as I opened the app it offered me a 30 day free trial - huge difference there. I would love to have the additional time to review the app, as I am already a subscriber to Texture...want to see which offers more, which I like better. But no way to contact them about this. I have screenshots of both offers as well as proof of the offers, but if someone would get back with me, would be fabulous! I’ll certainly give it a 5 star rating should I get a response...as a business owner myself, it makes a huge difference to me if a company has good customer support.
MISLEADING - I Want my Money Back
by StopTheSpamEmailsPlease on 2020/03/27 09:57
Magster claims their Magster Gold subscription will provide access to 5000 magazines, and because it includes thumbnails of of all popular magazines I thought I would have access to these. Instead, only obscure magazines are included. As for the popular ones, Magster just gives access to a 5 page “preview” teaser after which you have to purchase a separate subscription to each magazine to see more. Even worse, Magster is now sending me annoying notifications hyping stories in these non-included magazines. Since I am not interested in the magazines included in Magster Gold and I do not want to spend more money on additional subscriptions I could have just bought directly from the magazines themselves, pretty much all my $49 bought me is more Magster ads. Big waste of money. NOT CLASSY! I want my money back.
I’m not sure if I want to keep subscribing
by EmpresaRose on 2019/07/23 23:27
I am currently on a free trial of Magzter Gold and I like the UK magazines but what I don’t like is that they want to charge me for reading the American magazines which is crazy considering I live in the US. Also another thing I don’t like is that there are too many magazines that are of another language (different languages to be exact) and less of the English language magazines whether it’s UK or US version. Please change my mind and consider including the American magazines as part of your gold subscription? Otherwise I’ll just stick with Apple News + and purchase UK magazines a la carte.
Worth a million times over!
by NicolasHookk5 on 2018/02/21 15:55
If you are someone who purchases even 1-2 magazines per week, you are wasting your money at the store. You need to stop now and get a subscription to this app. You have access to hundreds of online issues, also available to read offline. I no longer have piles of magazines laying around. I’m also able to save articles and pics of things I like, and share with friends electronically. I’m saving hundreds of dollars per year by canceling my other subscriptions, yet I have so many more magazines to read! A great gift idea, too!
Bought a $30 subscription, no magazine
by Mike_Monty on 2018/06/11 12:03
iPhoneX with iOS 11.4, bought a magazine subscription but the app said it was not successful. My iTunes account though was charged and it shows a good subscription. The app Restore function fails and I have no access to what I paid for. Deleted and reinstalled app but same result. ***** Update: Within 48 hours technical support fixed the issue and I changed the rating from 1 to 4 stars accordingly. Follow the guidelines within the app for reporting problems.
Get your bookmarks together
by Userthree on 2019/01/15 16:53
I love access to the magazines but I’m frustrated with the viewer app that now requires network access to change bookmarks. Often I’m in a location without WIFI access with my tablet, but I still want to be able to add and delete bookmarks to mark my progress. I’m also frustrated with the buggy, changing interface for managing bookmarks, the inconsistencies of their management and the current failure to keep track and usefully sort those bookmarks for a particular issue—what was working pretty well is now a minefield of errors and frustration.
Works perfectly on iPad Air
by Christopher Arnold 5 on 2018/02/21 15:58
For years I have wanted to read magazines online. This app does the job. On an iPad Air, pages turns are quick enough to be similar to reading a printed copy and the resolution is high enough to not be annoying. Unlike a home computer where there is not enough resolution, this works very nicely. Thank you for making this available. I like that the next time I open it, it keeps my place where I am reading in each magazine.
This is the biggest bait and switch scam in the history of the world

Why are the prices hiding?
by 2julisa on 2018/12/15 20:51
They are NOT transparent in pricing. First, when you download the app there is only one option, a 30 day free trial where some mags are available but others not and are sold at $4.99 some, I didn’t check all. Are you kidding? I thought the subscription was unlimited like my other app that I can see all a available for the same price per month. Comparing apples to apples, my other app is a bargain and this one is a rip-off. Now I have been looking for 30 mins inside the app for other pricing options and where to cancel. I can’t find anything. I am going next to the website. Wish me luck. If I can find it I going straight to Apple customer service.
Won’t Work?
by RogueReader on 2018/08/10 16:31
I tried signing up for the 30 day trial. Everything I try to open a magazine, it will not download yet it shows I’m a subscribed member. Help? The response from the app developer resolved the issue, no pun intended, which was on my end. Everything works flawlessly now. I am so impressed with this app. I will never buy another magazine again. Thank you and keep up the great work! Finally, something that is too good to be true....really is!!
Horrible product: don’t subscribe!!!
by PoliticalStrategist on 2019/04/12 13:27
I signed up and paid for Lite and haven&#39;t been able to subscribe to any magazines with the IOS app. It&#39;s not possible to sign into the web version since it simple shows a circle on the screen as if it were logging in. It never happens. There is no way to get any support, cancel or resolve any issues. If I could, I would have given them -10 for wasting so much of my time and the frustration they have caused me. Worse yet is since I’ve been trying to figure out how to use it for a couple of months I’ve forgotten how I paid them and will likely be billed again for renewal since there is no way to cancel.
WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO TO YOUR SITE?!?
by Gobin56 on 2020/04/22 01:55
What is wrong with this site? I reloaded the site because I lost all the magazines in my collection; now I can’t restore ANYTHING (as of April 21st.) Now I can not only read the site-only magazines but have also lost magazines I have PURCHASED! Every dollar I spent purchasing books and magazines on your site I HAVE LOST!! Do you not understand why I am pi$$ed?!? I will make this as short as I can - FIX THE SITE OR I WILL DROP MY SUBSCRIPTION AND FILE A COMPLAINT WITH APPLE APPS AND THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU!!!
Poor interface, missing issues
by Guykaro Metta on 2019/08/03 22:31
The UI is very poor. You are immediately shown everything and the kitchen sink but not what you came here for: to read what you already own or want. The purpose is clear, to sell you more of what you don’t already own or want. It’s like a Kolkata bazar, not a good experience. Staff is helpful though restoring previous purchases manually when the restore button doesn’t work. Thanks.
Can’t Cancel Subcription!!
by Jinandout28 on 2020/07/27 01:13
I did the free 7 day trial and now I am trying to cancel it but it would not allow me! I saw online that I can cancel it through Apple iTunes, but Magzter doesn’t even show up as one of my subscriptions! Also, the “Manage Subscription” on the Magzter website does not even work! It kept loading for 30 minutes and nothing popped up! To the developers of Magzter, please fix this immediately! I just saw many reviews about this and it seems like you guys have not taken steps in improving this! I have already emailed the company and hopefully they will respond soon because this is just unbelievable!

Not as good as Texture
by California 1234567 on 2019/05/14 22:06
No auto download, no indication that a magazine was read. What do you have against alphabetical lists? HATE the random order for listings. I hoped it would take the place of Texture, but it is really not even close. Too many magazines that were included with Texture are not part of Gold. I guess it is back to paper subscriptions. Reply to developer: I had 29 ‘favorite’ magazines in Texture, all included with the monthly subscription. The following magazines are available in MAGZTER for additional money: Car and Driver Food Network Health Money Magazine Naturally O (Oprah) Prevention Real Simple Sunset I could not find the following magazines in search: All Recipes Chatelaine Consumer Reports Eating Well First for Women History (from National Geographic) Living (Martha Stewart) National Geographic (US version, found other countries, did not see one for US) New Beauty Rachel Ray Smithsonian Woman’s World Available (Part of Gold?) Clean Eating Motortrend National Geographic Traveler PC Magazine PC World Simple &amp; Delicious Sound &amp; Vision Taste of Home
Used to be a great app
by MFMFMfmfmfmfmfmfmfm on 2018/06/02 16:10
Ads started showing up in my magazines that did not used to be there. I am not interested in the ads nor the product. The ads are for a product that is totally unrelated to the content of my magazine. I find them irritating and a nuisance. These are not magazine ads but apparently are now embedded in the app and came with the latest update. No way to opt out. No way to tell Magzter I don’t want them. This used to be a 5-star app. I guess somebody at Magzter figured out a new way to get more advertising revenue. I am seriously considering going back to paper copies of my magazine.
Even the bad reviews are fake. THIS APP IS TRASH!
by ka7130630 on 2020/04/29 16:38
DO NOT GET THIS APP!!! I was offered a free subscription and my card is being charged $9.99. There is no phone number to call customer service. I see the charges on my bank account but when I go on the Magzter app it says I have no purchase history. It says the same on my Apple ID so this is definitely a scam and I want my money back. I will not allow them to withdraw money on my account every month for this garbage app with outdated magazines. And the reviews are fake, even the bad ones because every criticism is followed with slight praise. They’re not fooling me one bit
five stars...
by Michael+_+ on 2019/04/11 10:07
This app has the most comprehensive selections of magazines and bookazines plus they give you a bunch of free money to buy some more of the stuff you love it also has a web reader so you can read your stuff on iOS devices if you want. I will and do recommend this app to everyone who has an interest in digital magazines.
BEWARE of Gold Subscription
by jmaFW on 2018/09/21 00:23
App description and website say 10,000+ magazines. Gold subscription states 5,000+ magazines. Website on another page states “thousands of”. However, I counted 1,020 available to me under my Gold subscription. Of those about 1/3 are borderline pornography. Of the 1.020 only about 1/4 are current. Many are months or years behind. Anything actually good is additional cost over subscription. I hardly ever write app reviews but thought people should know. Apple will not refund and Magzter never has returned any of my emails or calls where I left messages.
My magazines disappeared!
by Rads1970 on 2018/11/28 07:47
I have been using Magzter regularly for the past few years. I have generally been happy but recently I have had lots of problems. A couple of times, all my downloads just disappeared .... my old issues of Yoga journal that I have paid for have all disappeared and are not accessible to me any more. I boarded a flight and tried to access my downloaded issues but none are available and I have to now download them all again which is a real nuisance. I am a Magzter gold subscriber and I wasn’t expecting this to happen.... super disappointed and dissatisfied
Gold subscription issues
by daveb1971 on 2021/01/14 03:16
I wanted to try the seven-day free trial to Magzter Gold to see how I liked the content and the app. However, after verifying my info through Apple and getting a verification email, I kept getting an error telling me that I don’t have a valid Gold subscription. I then sent an email to customer support and I was told I would get a response with 48-72 hours. In other words, the seven-day free trial is more like four or five days (at best). Sounds like another scam and I won’t be wasting any more time. I’ll just stick with Apple New Plus as it works like a charm without any drama.
Not USA titles
by emjay159 on 2021/01/02 13:22
Most of the popular English language magazines are the Canadian, English or Indian version not US. And you can’t filter on county only language. Also you can’t tell until you open it up and start reading. It’s pretty annoying especially if you end up liking a product or recipe. There are really only about 10 decent US titles not the thousands they claim to have. They should just be honest and up front about what their product offers.
Gets annoying
by Jigarankita on 2019/06/22 03:43
it constantly asks to send notification even after declining for couple of time. Same applies to subscribe to gold subscription. The app is being pushy. Instead of pushing the sales, they should offer a simple feature to auto download your subscription. That kind of feature will nudge me to subscribe to more content. Also there is no page or tab to view only your subscription or purchases. Many book stores and digital publishers offer this as a standard feature. I wouldn&#39;t recommended Magzter to others.
Single page and double page mode
by Ketankothari on 2018/12/15 23:14
Can you make app remember single page and double page mode. Everytime I open the app it goes to double page mode. Also it will be nice if you can open the last magazine by default like ibooks and kindle instead of opening the main menu.
Not as advertised-trouble canceling subscription
by Flower tunes on 2017/10/24 03:28
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&#39;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.
Read my review
by Prof. Anderson on 2018/02/15 06:55
Magzter is a magazine lover&#39;s, magazine enthusiast&#39;s, and life-long learner&#39;s dream. Everything from magazines, best selling books, languages learning books, and everything in between can be found here. All for free and many of them can be downloaded. Magzter deserves a Nobel Peace Prize (or some equivalent recognition) for making such an amazing resource freely available to the public.
No way to deactivate auto renewal
by Redtrooper33 on 2018/08/13 20:55
This advises you can cancel auto renewal at anytime. Which was big reason for signing on this site. So of course, when I went to manage my subscriptions to deactivate auto renewal you couldn’t. So then went to the contact us link and after filling out a email request to ask for instructions on deactivating auto renewal. The email wouldn’t send saying my account wasn’t activated? Not to mention that with the “so called” gold membership doesn’t really give you unlimited access as claimed. Certain magazines can not be accessed. I.E.:VOGUE, TIME, Martha Stewart’s LIVING and ELLE.
Love the article based reading!!!! 
by PTOson||Paul on 2018/02/15 14:40
Wow. I love the newest version with interesting articles that makes it easier for me to choose and based on my interest. I feel this is more personalised reading experience. Have been using this app for the past 1 years and it&#39;s amazing. I get to read all my favourite magazine at very reasonable cost... Highly recommended.
I give up
by RLLatta on 2020/10/06 23:44
It was good when it worked right. I have had a Gold subscription for a long time, but there have been several times the app has suddenly dropped my membership, and I have to contact customer service to get it back. Lately, it does it every month, and customer service makes me provide them a receipt each time before they restore the subscription. It did it again today, so I cancelled my Gold subscription. Going with Apple News+ instead.
Love it! Honestly
by Aaron lempriere on 2019/04/30 03:20
After less than a month the magazines offered to me are exactly what I would have picked, without having to search for them, not to mention those I would have otherwise missed. No more subscription fees to see local, state, and national newspapers, lots of which I&#39;m not interested in anyway!
Easy Navigation, Good Features
by Evirrssso on 2018/02/21 13:50
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
Charges, Charges, Charges....
by Perla012 on 2018/12/21 07:39
Just as others have complained, they promise to offer a ‘free’ trial (Which was free.... for two days before they started charging my account!!). They either offer a 7 day ‘free’ trial or 30 day ‘free’ trial depending on the package you get i believe. I received a whole statement from the apple store stating my purchase was $0 but not even 48 hrs after, they started out with a charge of over $10 when I had infact canceled my ‘free’ trial the very same day I downloded the app. Oh &amp; good luck trying to contact Apple Support about this as they won’t be much help.
great app
by Locon+conheoma on 2019/04/18 01:17
I&#39;m using this app for one magazine so far. No problems encountered. Easy zooming, two-page landscape view, ability to read only the text on any given page. I would definitely recommend this app and use it to read other magazines as well.
Definitely a bad buy
by nayanabeauty on 2020/08/02 15:40
The ads are very tempting - thousands of magazines available to read. The reality is very different. Innumerable magazines require additional subscriptions which are not cheap - they are far more expensive than direct subscription with the magazine. The interface is not very intelligent. From the table of contents of a magazine, you cannot navigate to the story. Something one can do in a simple ppt or pdf. Zoom is rather limited even on the browser version. All in all - I will not be continuing this subscription.
Buyer beware

This is not a good app. I had Texture previously and loved it! $9.99 a month for all my favorite magazines, easy to use, and organized. I have Apple News and hate the format, not easy to use, bookmark, or keep magazines. So I signed up for this app, and it is terrible! Half of my favorite magazines were not included, I would have to pay extra to read them. That is just plain crazy. Working to get a refund back! Guess I am stuck with Apple News for now, even though I hate it, at least it includes the magazines for $9.99!
Unable to view Gold Subscription
by Lefty516 on 2018/07/16 16:21
I started the free trial for the gold subscription last night. iTunes shows a gold subscription, as does my account. When I try to read while filtering for Gold subscription magazines I get a pop up that says I do not have an active gold subscription. I looked on the website and did not find any link that would allow me to email support. The contact link instead takes me to a webpage with a series of how to articles; none of which appeared to be my issue. Please advise.
Where are the new magazines?
by Visualink on 2019/01/10 08:16
A subscription was paid for and yet, I can’t get a magazine that’s current. Just pulled up the app and decided to see what’s available. Saw a publication I used to get by mail. The Oct 2018 edition is all that’s ready for me to read. Already read that issue — twice. Where are the current editions? All I notice is that I would need to pay more to see anything that’s brand new. I’m going to tell the individual who purchased a subscription that’s we are not getting a good deal with this app and to get rid of it.
Disappointing!
by TriHealth on 2017/08/05 19:21
The subscription worked and was able to have access to my magazines for about a month and then it didn&#39;t. Waste of money! Wasn&#39;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&#39;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&#39;t work the way it should!
Not what I expected
by design enthusist on 2019/09/29 05:50
I have been disappointed since I signed up. I have been a member of other magazine services and this one has the worst selection for the fee. I complained the first month and was promised more would be added as they build library. That has not been the case. . So far, a majority of magazines I’m interested in, are available at extra fee only and not part of the included monthly membership fee. It’s Not worth it. I can get access for less money else where, and will be cancelling this soon.
Couldn’t recommend more!

A top class app!
by Jhin.Ahlan on 2019/04/12 08:03
 Why would you need it when Magzter is so good? The app is easy to use and makes browsing the downloaded magazines super easy. The prices are reasonable too, and I now have access to India magazines which are not available through other digital media channels. Hurray for magzter.
Paid for trial and more and nothing works
by Espresso Red on 2019/06/05 00:04
I have signed up and paid and received confirmation that payment was accepted. Like others it does not show up on the app on any device and keeps asking me to sign up again. I am unable to download magazines without paying subscriptions or issue and magazine. Not a good customer experience. Will change to five stars if this is remedied quickly as it appears that the features are like texture’s. 3 days later and still not fixed. Really poor

Not just the magazine you want to read
by theydontwamtreviews on 2021/02/25 12:14
You will be continuously bombarded with ads for their upgraded service and “1000s of magazine titles” — I didn’t want thousands of magazines — just one title I love to read, in a clean, accessible interface. They’ve made digital reading an abilities chore.

Don’t get this app rip off
by lindablando on 2021/02/04 19:56
My credit card was charged 3 times. 9.99 twice and 49.99 once Still do not have access to any magazines or any information. It blocks me and asked me to pay for the reading material. It says I’m not a gold member. When I tried to email them they said my device is not set up for email. Although I use email on that device every day.
Very nice
by Arvindrao42 on 2021/02/02 07:57
Very very nice app excellent. On this app I am getting so many magazines and newspapers. Some magazines which I never heard that magazines I can read now. Very very nice app
Gold Trial Doesn’t Work
by Country Tune on 2021/01/16 20:50
Like the other reviewer below, I tried the 7-day free trial to Magzter Gold to see if I would like the content and ease of access to it. After verifying my info through Apple and getting a verification email, I kept getting an error message telling me I did not have a Magzter Gold account and could not access the magazines I wanted to read. VERY frustrating! Sure not a good way to get new subscribers!
Gold subscription issues
by daveb1971 on 2021/01/14 03:16
I wanted to try the seven-day free trial to Magzter Gold to see how I liked the content and the app. However, after verifying my info through Apple and getting a verification email, I kept getting an error telling me that I don’t have a valid Gold subscription. I then sent an email to customer support and I was told I would get a response with 48-72 hours. In other words, the seven-day free trial is more like four or five days (at best). Sounds like another scam and I won’t be wasting any more time. I’ll just stick with Apple New Plus as it works like a charm without any drama.
Billed and Not getting the service
by AD Penn Hills 4 Life on 2021/01/13 09:20
I am currently being billed for $3.99 for a subscription to Black Enterprise. I have not seen or had access to the digital subscription. The worst part is finding someone to contact about it. Very poor app!
Depends on what you want to see.
by WltDavisII on 2021/01/10 11:59
Some mags are original some are modified to meet certain social standards and content is removed. More of an apple issue than a magzter issue.

by VENUS42610 on 2021/01/09 02:16
I’m not Dennis My name is EVELYN DE JESUS AND MY ACCOUNT ITS UNDER MY NANE EVELYN DE JESUS It’s not true that you have access to more than 5,000 magazines for $9.99 a month That’s a big lie, I don’t recommend this magazines
Not USA titles
by emjay159 on 2021/01/02 13:22
Most of the popular English language magazines are the Canadian, English or Indian version not US. And you can’t filter on county only language. Also you can’t tell until you open it up and start reading. It’s pretty annoying especially if you end up liking a product or recipe. There are really only about 10 decent US titles not the thousands they claim to have. They should just be honest and up front about what their product offers.
Can’t sign in on app
by I like trying new carriers. on 2020/12/21 00:53
I can’t sign into my account on the app. The menu “buttons” are not responsive and you might want to include a link on your web app when to the Apple and google App Store.
Some good titles and many mediocre magazines
by Shiva RK on 2020/12/15 02:31
I subscribed as Magzter showed number of quality magazines. However upon subscription, I found there are many mediocre magazines and rest of good magazines need extra payment.
Most magazines require additional subscription
by Ssukesh on 2020/12/14 11:56
Please fix this soon.

by hjklfert on 2020/12/11 06:24
L’app fait croire que tous les magazines sont inclus dans l’offre mais il faut payer pour la majorité. Ne perdez pas votre argent Don’t waste your money - the app makes you think you are getting more magazines than you will have access to

Annoyed
by Derrickjay on 2020/11/27 18:11
I purchased the “Gold” subscription through Apple but Magzter keeps denying my access saying that the payment didn’t go through, although I have confirmed it with Apple subscriptions (per account instructions) and have receipt of payment. I can’t really speak on the app quality because I CANNOT ACCESS IT!
Subscription doesn’t give access warning
by iReview35 on 2020/11/27 01:47
Paid for yearly but app does’t give access. Tried the monthly option also and still doesn’t work. If you want access create an account on the magzter website and pay there instead and it works fine. I will be requesting a refund from apple. Dev must not want to have apple as middle man so buyer beware if purchasing through the app store, use the magzter website instead.
Problem?!
by Mšhārī £: on 2020/11/23 22:00
I downloaded from 2 days and start free trail ( 7 days ) now but it is not working and say to me &#34;you are not subscribing in gold&#34; ?? I canceled free trail because it is not working , This app so bad.. close it or fix it 🤨

Picture & account renewal
by jrmanwani on 2020/10/28 23:51
This application does not allow u to take picture , where in Apple news allows u to take pictures, This application has a auto renewal even if you don’t want , even if u send them a email to stop the renewal u will not get a reply ... Better stay with Apple news ...

Scam
by skytheguy1987 on 2020/10/08 21:50
I have been suscriben for several months, however, I can’t open any magazines!!!!
I give up
by RLLatta on 2020/10/06 23:44
It was good when it worked right. I have had a Gold subscription for a long time, but there have been several times the app has suddenly dropped my membership, and I have to contact customer service to get it back. Lately, it does it every month, and customer service makes me provide them a receipt each time before they restore the subscription. It did it again today, so I cancelled my Gold subscription. Going with Apple News+ instead.
Not as advertised
by Bowey36 on 2020/10/04 19:26
Misleading and not as advertised. I paid for a year and then saw I would have to pay for other mags if I wanted. What a ripoff. I got a refund. Disappointing and definitely not recommended
Scam
by kidinacandystore415 on 2020/10/01 14:10
Advertises that they can give you 5,000 + magazines to read. The majority of them are useless. Most all credible magazines they list require you to buy a regular subscription to read. In some cases, the price you would pay through Magzter is more expensive than if you order directly from the publisher. What a scam. Been waiting 2 weeks to get back my promised payment. UPDATE: See the developers boiler plate, lame response to my negative review. A marketing pitch but no answer to my complaints. After 10 emails over 2 weeks I still haven’t received my refund on the 7 day “trial” even though I cancelled the subscription the 2nd day. It’s a fraudulent scam and my credit card company is investigating. Run, don’t stop and buy this worthless piece of junk. The 2 founders are nothing but con artists and should be investigated for deceptive advertising and fraud. Apple needs to get their act together and remove losers apps like this from the store.
Don’t do it!
by Tiana =^..^= on 2020/09/13 14:17
Don’t sign up for a GOLD trial subscription - the option to cancel it doesn’t work, some of the magazines don’t even load and they’ll take your money before bothering to reply to a mail and letting you cancel. I’ve been waiting days for a response and still no valid option to cancel. It’s a hoax to steal your money!
No real offline download!!! Scam!!!
by 9thShadow on 2020/09/09 19:20
Need internet to read your downloads!!! So don’t bother subscribing! No internet no mags! Constantly have to find internet to just read my downloads! Does not keep my purchases on my iPad or phone app!!! DISGUSTED WITH THIS SCAM AND INCONVENIENCE!!! Sept 9, 2020 Still the same hastle! Now issue #4 isn&#39;t opening. Still having to download what&#39;s rightfully mine. No real sustainable permanent download for offline viewing or storage.
No way to cancel subscription
by Chuckeh on 2020/09/09 02:23
There is no way to cancel my subscription. The website and app don’t have a way to cancel subscription. It just sits there and says it’s loading but never loads the page. This is a horrible app.
Hard to read
by Angry in Africa on 2020/09/08 03:08
I wish I had never subscribed through you I can’t get it in a text format
Bad interface
by malmulla on 2020/08/12 13:45
The annual subscription with discount is cheap, but otherwise the app design and interface is really bad. Not easy to find the latest issues of your favourite magazine. A redesign focussed on what the reader actually wants to read will be great.
Very good

Annual plan doesn’t work
by Syappi on 2020/08/04 05:47
I subscribed and still can only preview the magazines. This is apparently a common problem if you Google it and they’ve even been reported to the Better Business Bureau. But they can’t seem to figure out this bug. Watch out!
Gold but not gold
by cjay212 on 2020/08/03 13:44
Even though I paid for a Gold subscription, I am prompted to pay for a subscription after I log in and with every magazine choice I make. And if I select a subscription option while trying to open magazines, I am told I already have an active subscription. What am I doing wrong??
Definitely a bad buy
by nayanabeauty on 2020/08/02 15:40
The ads are very tempting - thousands of magazines available to read. The reality is very different. Innumerable magazines require additional subscriptions which are not cheap - they are far more expensive than direct subscription with the magazine. The interface is not very intelligent. From the table of contents of a magazine, you cannot navigate to the story. Something one can do in a simple ppt or pdf. Zoom is rather limited even on the browser version. All in all - I will not be continuing this subscription.
Can’t Cancel Subcription!!
by Jinandout28 on 2020/07/27 01:13
I did the free 7 day trial and now I am trying to cancel it but it would not allow me! I saw online that I can cancel it through Apple iTunes, but Magzter doesn’t even show up as one of my subscriptions! Also, the “Manage Subscription” on the Magzter website does not even work! It kept loading for 30 minutes and nothing popped up! To the developers of Magzter, please fix this immediately! I just saw many reviews about this and it seems like you guys have not taken steps in improving this! I have already emailed the company and hopefully they will respond soon because this is just unbelievable!
Everything is edited.

Ripoff City
by #magsterripoff on 2020/06/21 19:35
Do NOT give them your credit card info! Once they get your monthly payment “cancel at any time” becomes a worthless phrase to them. I’ve been trying to cancel for three months to no avail. No good don’t buy!
App crashes Not worth. Very irresponsible team
by BRNS... on 2020/06/18 04:50
I have iPad and I have installed the latest ios too. But the app crashes the moment I open news papaer such as &#34;The Businessline&#34; or any other news papaer. This I am facing last 3 months. I have also deleted the app and reinstalled it. I have informed 1 month back by Mail also. I was promised rectification in few days. After that new version on iPad has come but still it crashes. Not worth the subscription if you want to read on iPad
Hopeless
by Mah0511 on 2020/06/09 02:00
After taking money, many newspapers are missing. The only response is “ we value feedback and do mail us”. Even if you mail nothing happens. Papers like the Hindu, business line, live mint , the new Indian express all have vanished off the shelf. It is obvious that this is cheating for a gold subscriber. Taking money and then removing magazines and papers is fraud. Will file a suit in court
Not great
by marie196834 on 2020/06/07 10:01
A lot of outdated magazines and yes over 5k magazines but these include old issues that are no longer available or ones where you still have to pay. Will stick to Readly and Apple+
Most of the popular magazines like Time, Newsweek etc are not included
by USA-NRI-all on 2020/05/26 00:59
Very disappointed. Wherever I click, most of the popular US magazines like Time, Newsweek etc are not free / not included.
Have not been able to access anything
by 2crackerj on 2020/05/17 23:04
I am still in my free trial and as yet, have not been able to read any of Magzter’s articles or magazines. When I try to read a magazine I get a message that my subscription rents in June but doesn’t let me read anything. I’m going to have to cancel my subscription.

Even the bad reviews are fake. THIS APP IS TRASH!
by ka7130630 on 2020/04/29 16:38
DO NOT GET THIS APP!!! I was offered a free subscription and my card is being charged $9.99. There is no phone number to call customer service. I see the charges on my bank account but when I go on the Magzter app it says I have no purchase history. It says the same on my Apple ID so this is definitely a scam and I want my money back. I will not allow them to withdraw money on my account every month for this garbage app with outdated magazines. And the reviews are fake, even the bad ones because every criticism is followed with slight praise. They’re not fooling me one bit

by Gobin56 on 2020/04/22 01:55
What is wrong with this site? I reloaded the site because I lost all the magazines in my collection; now I can’t restore ANYTHING (as of April 21st.) Now I can not only read the site-only magazines but have also lost magazines I have PURCHASED! Every dollar I spent purchasing books and magazines on your site I HAVE LOST!! Do you not understand why I am pi$$ed?!? I will make this as short as I can - FIX THE SITE OR I WILL DROP MY SUBSCRIPTION AND FILE A COMPLAINT WITH APPLE APPS AND THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU!!!
No way to unsubscribe
by The Big Sister on 2020/04/12 15:48
Tried to find a way to unsubscribe so I wouldn’t get charged $99.99 for another years worth of service. I can not find a way to unsubscribe on the app or through iTunes subscriptions. Beware of signing up for this service. I will contact my bank tomorrow to stop payment of the charges taken out of my account today.

Cannot Cancel Free Trial

DO NOT sign up, it is impossible to cancel the free trial. There isn’t a straightforward cancellation option nor is there a phone number to call for support.
Really great but one major flaw
by Bendeegaga on 2020/03/31 13:02
I love this app. Except for one thing. I am a Gold subscriber but every time I open the app it asks me if I want to be a Gold subscriber. Really annoying and no way (that I can see) of turning it off.
Some magazines but not all of them
by louis69jc on 2020/03/30 03:13
When I considered whether to get the subscription or not I assumed that I would get all the major magazines out there but they don’t tell you that you won’t. After signing up I was surprised that I didn’t get the ones I really wanted instead I get most of unpopular ones. Very disappointed.
MISLEADING - I Want my Money Back
by StopTheSpamEmailsPlease on 2020/03/27 09:57
Magster claims their Magster Gold subscription will provide access to 5000 magazines, and because it includes thumbnails of of all popular magazines I thought I would have access to these. Instead, only obscure magazines are included. As for the popular ones, Magster just gives access to a 5 page “preview” teaser after which you have to purchase a separate subscription to each magazine to see more. Even worse, Magster is now sending me annoying notifications hyping stories in these non-included magazines. Since I am not interested in the magazines included in Magster Gold and I do not want to spend more money on additional subscriptions I could have just bought directly from the magazines themselves, pretty much all my $49 bought me is more Magster ads. Big waste of money. NOT CLASSY! I want my money back.
Need to cancel
by tongueking on 2020/03/21 00:25
Please tell me me how I can cancel my subscription.
Misleading and a hassle.
by hgyrdvjuedghyfv on 2020/02/20 17:52
Gold subscription was advertised as unlimited access but it is a pathetic selection of magazines. I tried to cancel the auto renewing membership but had no way to do so myself and had to send an email to customer support. Who knows if I will get an answer. Don’t waste your time.

Magzter is a fantastic resource for magazines, news, clips etc. if it isn’t here I don’t think it is anywhere!👍🏻
Too few quality free magazines.
by paulmock on 2020/01/31 20:42
Nice app. Easy to use. But far too few big name and quality magazines at no additional charge.
Not all mags are free with subscription
by peacefulruler on 2020/01/21 14:59
Many business magazines are $29.99 to subscribers within the app. The app is great but your yearly fee may not get you what you’re really after. If you only want specific magazines then the yearly fee might be better spent on those magazines directly.
Prompts with no solutions in sight. Arrogant support
by itsSoldier on 2020/01/21 05:45
Kindly review all of your pop up alerts. Do they guide you to resolve the issue. NO.
I CANCELLED it within minutes. [30 Day Trial]
by f obama on 2020/01/21 03:59
First magazine I looked for they don’t have [Dirt Bike]. Not interested in the non USA editions or other similar sounding mags. Second mag I looked for they didn’t have either. I cancelled immediately so I wouldn’t forget &amp; get charged $10/month.
Good app but
by Osiittoo !!! on 2020/01/16 09:17
It’s great app I’m not gone lie it help me a lot about health magazine . , but if Im paying for gold at least uncensored the adult magazines.

Last update not working in ios with company license
by Jatzibe on 2020/01/12 03:41
Hi! The company I work for gave us a license which we sign in with our corporate accounts (SSO), and since last update in ios is not working anymore, only on androids. Please help, I used to read the magazines in my iPad.
Why bother?
by galactanoran on 2020/01/07 08:27
Why am I paying $10 a month for an app that makes me buy magazines in the app? When I had a subscription to Texture I was able to read all of the magazines they offered.
No help
by jls1942 on 2020/01/06 02:36
I should have shared access but can not get access to magazines and have not been able to get any help response
Not getting proper access
by #%~<> on 2019/12/27 04:30
Purchased Gold subscription but keep being told that I need to buy it again or pay for individual magazines.
Buggy, does not work
by philgriffusmc on 2019/12/22 10:29
I have tried for the last hour and am exhausted. I downloaded and subscribed to the 1 month free of “gold” but have not been able to access anything at all. I uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times with no luck. I contacted the customer support email so waiting on a response. Beyond that just exploring the app and clicking things they are buggy and often do now work as intended. Also the layout of the account and setting are very odd.
Buyer beware
by Ajpendo on 2019/12/21 16:25
Be aware that you cannot get a refund once paid and locked in for a year. So far I have also been unable to reset password and login. I am therefore paying for a year for content I cannot access.
Good when it opens correctly
by mikesmail1 on 2019/12/18 14:02
After purchasing this app. It only works on one of my devices. It keeps asking me to repurchase it on others. So it still has a ways to go. Loading takes a while even on a 100mb network. Once loaded the app works great.
Magster
by Matt from Schuyler on 2019/12/13 04:31
Awesome app, easy to use.
Waste of money
by Rakesh999 on 2019/12/09 03:15
The major us magazines are not part of subscription. They want you to pay for those magazines separately. All the free magazines they have in gold subscription are the ones that you never want to read anyway. They are all international magazines in other languages. I emailed them to downgrade my subscription from family sharing to individual - I’m still waiting for their reply You will be better off with Apple news plus if you want to read all the standard USA magazines.
BUYER BEWARE! FALSE ADVERTISING
by Loves2shopsales on 2019/12/06 23:25
I purchased a year of Magzter Gold in advance only to realize you can only get the “B” grade magazines to view. If you want to view the “A” grade - just think of any like Oprah Magazine, The New Yorker, Glamour, Vogue, People, Variety, etc. you get the picture you have to subscribe to them. You’re better off going to Apple News or Readly. I’m waiting from them to see if I can can get a refund on on credit card ASAP
Update is crashing in IPhone 11
by Dan1982123 on 2019/12/04 12:24
The app is very good. But it started crashing after the latest update. Hoping that you guys will promptly fix...
This is the biggest bait and switch scam in the history of the world
by markfeil on 2019/12/02 02:44
They advertise access to 5000+ magazines, but after I became a member I found that nearly all of those I was interested in are available for purchase from those publishers for the price of a regular subscription. They are not included with my membership in Magzter. Fortunately, they have a one week free trial after you give them your credit card number so you can request a refund, which you will likely do. Unfortunately, this refund will take up to 30 days to process! Don’t bother with this app. Remember the old saying – if it seems too good to be true it probably is? It is! Don’t waste your time!
Doesn’t work
by tasha32217 on 2019/11/14 00:31
Doesn’t do anything but tell me I don’t have a subscription. Don’t waste your time
Total Misrepresentation
by Dini_sg on 2019/11/12 17:12
If you are a US reader do not use this App. The App touts the largest digital collection. Here’s the reality - little to NO mainstream domestic lifestyle, fashion, home, beauty etc. magazines are in included - they all require additional subscription/issue fees. AND I bought the all-in subscription for year!!!!!! The magazines that are included are the type you find at hotels or free magazines. The highend magazines Vogue, Elle, Glamour etc. are versions from Philippines, South Africa, India etc. and some are very old i.e. 2015. Magazines like US market Glamour, Vougue, Glamour, Elle, Marie Claire Real Simple, Oprah, People, Martha Stewart, Shape require additional subscription/issue fees. Total Misrepresentation!!!
Deceiving
by descieved on 2019/11/04 19:11
Does not make clear that you are paying 9.99 per month to buy individual subscriptions to magazine. Who needs that ? Also make it extremely difficult and unclear how to cancel subscription. Deceiving !
Amazing app
by SeemaMirchandani on 2019/11/03 15:13
Amazing app especially love the Indian magazines don&#39;t get time due to work but will surly take sundays and beach reading together
Bunch of fraudsters
by Kingy8578 on 2019/10/27 15:44
Cannot get out of an auto-rewel. Stay well clear unless you want to be locked into a subscription for the rest of you life!
Bad Time Management
by AS Radhakrishnan on 2019/10/25 02:38
The app promises to deliver thousands of magazines but cannot manage the simple task of uploading the newspaper in time. The newspaper print comes home by 7am IST but the digital copy is still not uploaded. Some newspapers load some don’t. Also the app needs to get rid of the crappy magazines which are no longer published like futures daily
Useless app
by MimiJ1023 on 2019/10/22 22:06
Should have known when there is no contact information app is usually garbage. Signed up and received nothing. App won’t work. Contacting credit card company to disallow
I already have an account.
by Kadeegirl on 2019/10/21 05:13
My name is T.Gail Chavis. I already have an account with Magzter, on my phone. I just got a new IPad, and wanted to have the best of both worlds. I just don’t want to be charged twice. Some how the company was going to charge me twice , when I put the app on my old IPad. I didn’t want to use it at the time because I didn’t want to be charged twice. I believe that won’t happen again. I look forward to enjoying your product for many years. Sincerely , T.Gail Chavis
No Unlimited Access
by scifichic77 on 2019/10/20 06:25
My unlimited access is not unlimited. Only some magazine titles are available as unlimited. Most of the titles that are ‘free to read’ are magazines I’ve never even heard of. Most of the popular titles I want to read are asking me to pay a subscription fee on top of the monthly fee I’m already being charged on a monthly basis. Really? Come on, man. I won’t renew.
Have to pay extra for some magazines
by pitmama71 on 2019/10/19 21:08
When I seen the ad in Apple Magazine, read that for $9.99 unlimited magazines, yes there are a lot of magazines included in the monthly subscription but majority of the magazines I’m interested in have to pay extra so this app isn’t worth it because you pay the same if you just subscribe to the magazines you want.
Free trial issues
by Painter Jane on 2019/10/12 17:33
I got the gold trial membership and it won’t allow me to read magazines. Only samples.
not worth it
by not it isn't on 2019/10/06 12:39
Had I known most of the magazines I’d like to read require further purchases,I would not have paid $49.99 for a yearly subscription.And don’t bother writing the developer.They send you the same response they send everyone and don’ care what you think.
Great value, terrible UI
by ChrisParker12 on 2019/10/02 18:08
Great price and replacement for the awful Apple News app. But the UI on the devices and website, are really bad. The interface just does not work properly.
Not what I expected
by design enthusist on 2019/09/29 05:50
I have been disappointed since I signed up. I have been a member of other magazine services and this one has the worst selection for the fee. I complained the first month and was promised more would be added as they build library. That has not been the case. . So far, a majority of magazines I’m interested in, are available at extra fee only and not part of the included monthly membership fee. It’s Not worth it. I can get access for less money else where, and will be cancelling this soon.
Very disreputable company.
by scottc06 on 2019/09/15 18:08
I purchased a Woodcraft Magazine subscription by mistake. Went in and tried to cancel the subscription and receive a refund the same day. I tried three times to contact them to fix this problem. They told me they would get back to me. They did not do this. They have my money. And I do not want this magazine. Please do not do business with this company.
Good but can be better
by Apple3gs on 2019/01/14 19:07
While the interface works well on iPhone and iPad, the web interface is little clunky. Barring these missing features, I think this is a great value: * no sync across devices - I have an iPhone as well as an iPad and if I read a magazine on one device, the app on other device should continue from where I left off. * favorites organization is severely lacking - I have many magazines as favorite and I can only see magazines in the order I added them. There should be some way to sort/group items * there is no visible download queue and the downloads stop when the app is in the background. I usually like to download few magazines before I leave for a trip but have to keep waiting for the downloads to finish. There is no easy way to know if the downloads have finished so I have to remember the last magazine I put in the queue and see if it is done

Not clearly explained
by Kyhobbit on 2019/07/09 15:52
I tried a 30 day free trial for gold service. Unlimited access to a wide variety of magazines. Liked it so decided to subscribe to gold service. What is very unclear with this service is the unlimited acess to all magazines does not apply once your free trial is over. You pay $9.99 a month for a store front to purchase any magazines you are interested in. It is presented as a Netflix for magazines for one price but it is not. Feel this is very misrepresented. Won’t be paying for another month subscription. Update: was told via email from Magzter customer service, reason I could not access magazines was they had no record of me purchasing their $9.99 plan. I paid through my apple account. Money was taken to pay for Magzter. I ended up requesting a refund from apple. Apple being the awesome company they are gave me my refund. Can’t recommend Magzter. (Loved Magzter form letter response to any issues users having)
Scam
by kidinacandystore415 on 2020/10/01 14:10
Advertises that they can give you 5,000 + magazines to read. The majority of them are useless. Most all credible magazines they list require you to buy a regular subscription to read. In some cases, the price you would pay through Magzter is more expensive than if you order directly from the publisher. What a scam. Been waiting 2 weeks to get back my promised payment. UPDATE: See the developers boiler plate, lame response to my negative review. A marketing pitch but no answer to my complaints. After 10 emails over 2 weeks I still haven’t received my refund on the 7 day “trial” even though I cancelled the subscription the 2nd day. It’s a fraudulent scam and my credit card company is investigating. Run, don’t stop and buy this worthless piece of junk. The 2 founders are nothing but con artists and should be investigated for deceptive advertising and fraud. Apple needs to get their act together and remove losers apps like this from the store.
C’mon Magzter, really???
by bdhdiebxbfkdkxbfhwjfh on 2018/10/17 12:41
So I read some of the negative reviews but figured I would try out the free version. I really liked what I saw. I immediately accepted the offer for the Gold account, which was free for 30 days, but requires you to allow the monthly billing through iTunes. So you have to go into iTunes settings if you want to prevent charges after the 30 day trial period. OK, I get that. Spent some time reading and was happy with the choices I had. 12 hours later, Magzter is telling me I don’t have a Gold account. I’ve read other reviews with similar complaints with responses from the company. Obviously, the company either doesn’t care or doesn’t have the know-how or expertise to fix the problem. Think about this, Magzter: what if your readers contact the magazine publishers that you carry and let them know that your faulty app is giving their magazines a bad rap? Do you understand what I’m saying?
Subscription Issue
by Ging Raye on 2018/09/24 22:38
I am unable to contact customer support as there is not a phone number or preferably, an email address to contact them. Today, I was offered a 7 day free trial to Magzter Gold and I took them up on it, signed up, etc. Then I went to download the app to another device and as soon as I opened the app it offered me a 30 day free trial - huge difference there. I would love to have the additional time to review the app, as I am already a subscriber to Texture...want to see which offers more, which I like better. But no way to contact them about this. I have screenshots of both offers as well as proof of the offers, but if someone would get back with me, would be fabulous! I’ll certainly give it a 5 star rating should I get a response...as a business owner myself, it makes a huge difference to me if a company has good customer support.
MISLEADING - I Want my Money Back
by StopTheSpamEmailsPlease on 2020/03/27 09:57
Magster claims their Magster Gold subscription will provide access to 5000 magazines, and because it includes thumbnails of of all popular magazines I thought I would have access to these. Instead, only obscure magazines are included. As for the popular ones, Magster just gives access to a 5 page “preview” teaser after which you have to purchase a separate subscription to each magazine to see more. Even worse, Magster is now sending me annoying notifications hyping stories in these non-included magazines. Since I am not interested in the magazines included in Magster Gold and I do not want to spend more money on additional subscriptions I could have just bought directly from the magazines themselves, pretty much all my $49 bought me is more Magster ads. Big waste of money. NOT CLASSY! I want my money back.
I’m not sure if I want to keep subscribing
by EmpresaRose on 2019/07/23 23:27
I am currently on a free trial of Magzter Gold and I like the UK magazines but what I don’t like is that they want to charge me for reading the American magazines which is crazy considering I live in the US. Also another thing I don’t like is that there are too many magazines that are of another language (different languages to be exact) and less of the English language magazines whether it’s UK or US version. Please change my mind and consider including the American magazines as part of your gold subscription? Otherwise I’ll just stick with Apple News + and purchase UK magazines a la carte.
Worth a million times over!
by NicolasHookk5 on 2018/02/21 15:55
If you are someone who purchases even 1-2 magazines per week, you are wasting your money at the store. You need to stop now and get a subscription to this app. You have access to hundreds of online issues, also available to read offline. I no longer have piles of magazines laying around. I’m also able to save articles and pics of things I like, and share with friends electronically. I’m saving hundreds of dollars per year by canceling my other subscriptions, yet I have so many more magazines to read! A great gift idea, too!
Bought a $30 subscription, no magazine
by Mike_Monty on 2018/06/11 12:03
iPhoneX with iOS 11.4, bought a magazine subscription but the app said it was not successful. My iTunes account though was charged and it shows a good subscription. The app Restore function fails and I have no access to what I paid for. Deleted and reinstalled app but same result. ***** Update: Within 48 hours technical support fixed the issue and I changed the rating from 1 to 4 stars accordingly. Follow the guidelines within the app for reporting problems.
Get your bookmarks together
by Userthree on 2019/01/15 16:53
I love access to the magazines but I’m frustrated with the viewer app that now requires network access to change bookmarks. Often I’m in a location without WIFI access with my tablet, but I still want to be able to add and delete bookmarks to mark my progress. I’m also frustrated with the buggy, changing interface for managing bookmarks, the inconsistencies of their management and the current failure to keep track and usefully sort those bookmarks for a particular issue—what was working pretty well is now a minefield of errors and frustration.
Works perfectly on iPad Air
by Christopher Arnold 5 on 2018/02/21 15:58
For years I have wanted to read magazines online. This app does the job. On an iPad Air, pages turns are quick enough to be similar to reading a printed copy and the resolution is high enough to not be annoying. Unlike a home computer where there is not enough resolution, this works very nicely. Thank you for making this available. I like that the next time I open it, it keeps my place where I am reading in each magazine.

Why are the prices hiding?
by 2julisa on 2018/12/15 20:51
They are NOT transparent in pricing. First, when you download the app there is only one option, a 30 day free trial where some mags are available but others not and are sold at $4.99 some, I didn’t check all. Are you kidding? I thought the subscription was unlimited like my other app that I can see all a available for the same price per month. Comparing apples to apples, my other app is a bargain and this one is a rip-off. Now I have been looking for 30 mins inside the app for other pricing options and where to cancel. I can’t find anything. I am going next to the website. Wish me luck. If I can find it I going straight to Apple customer service.
Won’t Work?
by RogueReader on 2018/08/10 16:31
I tried signing up for the 30 day trial. Everything I try to open a magazine, it will not download yet it shows I’m a subscribed member. Help? The response from the app developer resolved the issue, no pun intended, which was on my end. Everything works flawlessly now. I am so impressed with this app. I will never buy another magazine again. Thank you and keep up the great work! Finally, something that is too good to be true....really is!!
Horrible product: don’t subscribe!!!
by PoliticalStrategist on 2019/04/12 13:27
I signed up and paid for Lite and haven&#39;t been able to subscribe to any magazines with the IOS app. It&#39;s not possible to sign into the web version since it simple shows a circle on the screen as if it were logging in. It never happens. There is no way to get any support, cancel or resolve any issues. If I could, I would have given them -10 for wasting so much of my time and the frustration they have caused me. Worse yet is since I’ve been trying to figure out how to use it for a couple of months I’ve forgotten how I paid them and will likely be billed again for renewal since there is no way to cancel.
WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO TO YOUR SITE?!?
by Gobin56 on 2020/04/22 01:55
What is wrong with this site? I reloaded the site because I lost all the magazines in my collection; now I can’t restore ANYTHING (as of April 21st.) Now I can not only read the site-only magazines but have also lost magazines I have PURCHASED! Every dollar I spent purchasing books and magazines on your site I HAVE LOST!! Do you not understand why I am pi$$ed?!? I will make this as short as I can - FIX THE SITE OR I WILL DROP MY SUBSCRIPTION AND FILE A COMPLAINT WITH APPLE APPS AND THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU!!!
Poor interface, missing issues
by Guykaro Metta on 2019/08/03 22:31
The UI is very poor. You are immediately shown everything and the kitchen sink but not what you came here for: to read what you already own or want. The purpose is clear, to sell you more of what you don’t already own or want. It’s like a Kolkata bazar, not a good experience. Staff is helpful though restoring previous purchases manually when the restore button doesn’t work. Thanks.
Can’t Cancel Subcription!!
by Jinandout28 on 2020/07/27 01:13
I did the free 7 day trial and now I am trying to cancel it but it would not allow me! I saw online that I can cancel it through Apple iTunes, but Magzter doesn’t even show up as one of my subscriptions! Also, the “Manage Subscription” on the Magzter website does not even work! It kept loading for 30 minutes and nothing popped up! To the developers of Magzter, please fix this immediately! I just saw many reviews about this and it seems like you guys have not taken steps in improving this! I have already emailed the company and hopefully they will respond soon because this is just unbelievable!

Not as good as Texture
by California 1234567 on 2019/05/14 22:06
No auto download, no indication that a magazine was read. What do you have against alphabetical lists? HATE the random order for listings. I hoped it would take the place of Texture, but it is really not even close. Too many magazines that were included with Texture are not part of Gold. I guess it is back to paper subscriptions. Reply to developer: I had 29 ‘favorite’ magazines in Texture, all included with the monthly subscription. The following magazines are available in MAGZTER for additional money: Car and Driver Food Network Health Money Magazine Naturally O (Oprah) Prevention Real Simple Sunset I could not find the following magazines in search: All Recipes Chatelaine Consumer Reports Eating Well First for Women History (from National Geographic) Living (Martha Stewart) National Geographic (US version, found other countries, did not see one for US) New Beauty Rachel Ray Smithsonian Woman’s World Available (Part of Gold?) Clean Eating Motortrend National Geographic Traveler PC Magazine PC World Simple &amp; Delicious Sound &amp; Vision Taste of Home
Used to be a great app
by MFMFMfmfmfmfmfmfmfm on 2018/06/02 16:10
Ads started showing up in my magazines that did not used to be there. I am not interested in the ads nor the product. The ads are for a product that is totally unrelated to the content of my magazine. I find them irritating and a nuisance. These are not magazine ads but apparently are now embedded in the app and came with the latest update. No way to opt out. No way to tell Magzter I don’t want them. This used to be a 5-star app. I guess somebody at Magzter figured out a new way to get more advertising revenue. I am seriously considering going back to paper copies of my magazine.
Even the bad reviews are fake. THIS APP IS TRASH!
by ka7130630 on 2020/04/29 16:38
DO NOT GET THIS APP!!! I was offered a free subscription and my card is being charged $9.99. There is no phone number to call customer service. I see the charges on my bank account but when I go on the Magzter app it says I have no purchase history. It says the same on my Apple ID so this is definitely a scam and I want my money back. I will not allow them to withdraw money on my account every month for this garbage app with outdated magazines. And the reviews are fake, even the bad ones because every criticism is followed with slight praise. They’re not fooling me one bit
five stars...
by Michael+_+ on 2019/04/11 10:07
This app has the most comprehensive selections of magazines and bookazines plus they give you a bunch of free money to buy some more of the stuff you love it also has a web reader so you can read your stuff on iOS devices if you want. I will and do recommend this app to everyone who has an interest in digital magazines.
BEWARE of Gold Subscription
by jmaFW on 2018/09/21 00:23
App description and website say 10,000+ magazines. Gold subscription states 5,000+ magazines. Website on another page states “thousands of”. However, I counted 1,020 available to me under my Gold subscription. Of those about 1/3 are borderline pornography. Of the 1.020 only about 1/4 are current. Many are months or years behind. Anything actually good is additional cost over subscription. I hardly ever write app reviews but thought people should know. Apple will not refund and Magzter never has returned any of my emails or calls where I left messages.
My magazines disappeared!
by Rads1970 on 2018/11/28 07:47
I have been using Magzter regularly for the past few years. I have generally been happy but recently I have had lots of problems. A couple of times, all my downloads just disappeared .... my old issues of Yoga journal that I have paid for have all disappeared and are not accessible to me any more. I boarded a flight and tried to access my downloaded issues but none are available and I have to now download them all again which is a real nuisance. I am a Magzter gold subscriber and I wasn’t expecting this to happen.... super disappointed and dissatisfied
Gold subscription issues
by daveb1971 on 2021/01/14 03:16
I wanted to try the seven-day free trial to Magzter Gold to see how I liked the content and the app. However, after verifying my info through Apple and getting a verification email, I kept getting an error telling me that I don’t have a valid Gold subscription. I then sent an email to customer support and I was told I would get a response with 48-72 hours. In other words, the seven-day free trial is more like four or five days (at best). Sounds like another scam and I won’t be wasting any more time. I’ll just stick with Apple New Plus as it works like a charm without any drama.
Not USA titles
by emjay159 on 2021/01/02 13:22
Most of the popular English language magazines are the Canadian, English or Indian version not US. And you can’t filter on county only language. Also you can’t tell until you open it up and start reading. It’s pretty annoying especially if you end up liking a product or recipe. There are really only about 10 decent US titles not the thousands they claim to have. They should just be honest and up front about what their product offers.
Gets annoying
by Jigarankita on 2019/06/22 03:43
it constantly asks to send notification even after declining for couple of time. Same applies to subscribe to gold subscription. The app is being pushy. Instead of pushing the sales, they should offer a simple feature to auto download your subscription. That kind of feature will nudge me to subscribe to more content. Also there is no page or tab to view only your subscription or purchases. Many book stores and digital publishers offer this as a standard feature. I wouldn&#39;t recommended Magzter to others.
Single page and double page mode
by Ketankothari on 2018/12/15 23:14
Can you make app remember single page and double page mode. Everytime I open the app it goes to double page mode. Also it will be nice if you can open the last magazine by default like ibooks and kindle instead of opening the main menu.
Not as advertised-trouble canceling subscription
by Flower tunes on 2017/10/24 03:28
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&#39;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.

Magzter is a magazine lover&#39;s, magazine enthusiast&#39;s, and life-long learner&#39;s dream. Everything from magazines, best selling books, languages learning books, and everything in between can be found here. All for free and many of them can be downloaded. Magzter deserves a Nobel Peace Prize (or some equivalent recognition) for making such an amazing resource freely available to the public.
No way to deactivate auto renewal
by Redtrooper33 on 2018/08/13 20:55
This advises you can cancel auto renewal at anytime. Which was big reason for signing on this site. So of course, when I went to manage my subscriptions to deactivate auto renewal you couldn’t. So then went to the contact us link and after filling out a email request to ask for instructions on deactivating auto renewal. The email wouldn’t send saying my account wasn’t activated? Not to mention that with the “so called” gold membership doesn’t really give you unlimited access as claimed. Certain magazines can not be accessed. I.E.:VOGUE, TIME, Martha Stewart’s LIVING and ELLE.
Love the article based reading!!!! 
by PTOson||Paul on 2018/02/15 14:40
Wow. I love the newest version with interesting articles that makes it easier for me to choose and based on my interest. I feel this is more personalised reading experience. Have been using this app for the past 1 years and it&#39;s amazing. I get to read all my favourite magazine at very reasonable cost... Highly recommended.
I give up
by RLLatta on 2020/10/06 23:44
It was good when it worked right. I have had a Gold subscription for a long time, but there have been several times the app has suddenly dropped my membership, and I have to contact customer service to get it back. Lately, it does it every month, and customer service makes me provide them a receipt each time before they restore the subscription. It did it again today, so I cancelled my Gold subscription. Going with Apple News+ instead.
Love it! Honestly
by Aaron lempriere on 2019/04/30 03:20
After less than a month the magazines offered to me are exactly what I would have picked, without having to search for them, not to mention those I would have otherwise missed. No more subscription fees to see local, state, and national newspapers, lots of which I&#39;m not interested in anyway!
Easy Navigation, Good Features
by Evirrssso on 2018/02/21 13:50
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
Charges, Charges, Charges....
by Perla012 on 2018/12/21 07:39
Just as others have complained, they promise to offer a ‘free’ trial (Which was free.... for two days before they started charging my account!!). They either offer a 7 day ‘free’ trial or 30 day ‘free’ trial depending on the package you get i believe. I received a whole statement from the apple store stating my purchase was $0 but not even 48 hrs after, they started out with a charge of over $10 when I had infact canceled my ‘free’ trial the very same day I downloded the app. Oh &amp; good luck trying to contact Apple Support about this as they won’t be much help.
great app
by Locon+conheoma on 2019/04/18 01:17
I&#39;m using this app for one magazine so far. No problems encountered. Easy zooming, two-page landscape view, ability to read only the text on any given page. I would definitely recommend this app and use it to read other magazines as well.
Definitely a bad buy
by nayanabeauty on 2020/08/02 15:40
The ads are very tempting - thousands of magazines available to read. The reality is very different. Innumerable magazines require additional subscriptions which are not cheap - they are far more expensive than direct subscription with the magazine. The interface is not very intelligent. From the table of contents of a magazine, you cannot navigate to the story. Something one can do in a simple ppt or pdf. Zoom is rather limited even on the browser version. All in all - I will not be continuing this subscription.
Buyer beware
by Lacanter on 2019/08/24 23:50
This is not a good app. I had Texture previously and loved it! $9.99 a month for all my favorite magazines, easy to use, and organized. I have Apple News and hate the format, not easy to use, bookmark, or keep magazines. So I signed up for this app, and it is terrible! Half of my favorite magazines were not included, I would have to pay extra to read them. That is just plain crazy. Working to get a refund back! Guess I am stuck with Apple News for now, even though I hate it, at least it includes the magazines for $9.99!
Unable to view Gold Subscription
by Lefty516 on 2018/07/16 16:21
I started the free trial for the gold subscription last night. iTunes shows a gold subscription, as does my account. When I try to read while filtering for Gold subscription magazines I get a pop up that says I do not have an active gold subscription. I looked on the website and did not find any link that would allow me to email support. The contact link instead takes me to a webpage with a series of how to articles; none of which appeared to be my issue. Please advise.
Where are the new magazines?
by Visualink on 2019/01/10 08:16
A subscription was paid for and yet, I can’t get a magazine that’s current. Just pulled up the app and decided to see what’s available. Saw a publication I used to get by mail. The Oct 2018 edition is all that’s ready for me to read. Already read that issue — twice. Where are the current editions? All I notice is that I would need to pay more to see anything that’s brand new. I’m going to tell the individual who purchased a subscription that’s we are not getting a good deal with this app and to get rid of it.
Disappointing!
by TriHealth on 2017/08/05 19:21
The subscription worked and was able to have access to my magazines for about a month and then it didn&#39;t. Waste of money! Wasn&#39;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&#39;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&#39;t work the way it should!
Not what I expected
by design enthusist on 2019/09/29 05:50
I have been disappointed since I signed up. I have been a member of other magazine services and this one has the worst selection for the fee. I complained the first month and was promised more would be added as they build library. That has not been the case. . So far, a majority of magazines I’m interested in, are available at extra fee only and not part of the included monthly membership fee. It’s Not worth it. I can get access for less money else where, and will be cancelling this soon.
Couldn’t recommend more!
by MeMoRi^^ on 2018/09/10 14:48
It has become my go-to app for news on everything. Its intuitive and easy to use interface makes browsing--or &#34;flipping&#34; through articles and stories feel natural and its constantly improving algorithms tend to deliver relevant

A top class app!
by Jhin.Ahlan on 2019/04/12 08:03
 Why would you need it when Magzter is so good? The app is easy to use and makes browsing the downloaded magazines super easy. The prices are reasonable too, and I now have access to India magazines which are not available through other digital media channels. Hurray for magzter.
Paid for trial and more and nothing works
by Espresso Red on 2019/06/05 00:04
I have signed up and paid and received confirmation that payment was accepted. Like others it does not show up on the app on any device and keeps asking me to sign up again. I am unable to download magazines without paying subscriptions or issue and magazine. Not a good customer experience. Will change to five stars if this is remedied quickly as it appears that the features are like texture’s. 3 days later and still not fixed. Really poor
