TIME Magazine Reviews


Improved  JoelTB2003  4 star

I like the "PDF" view much better. Just wish they would increase the resolution a bit. It already looks grainy even when you zoom in just a little.

Too difficult to read on iPhone  Avid Hôrer  1 star

When I am able to expand the page so there is only one column I can read it. However this configuration is very unstable. The app as is, is nearly useless for my iPhone (6 plus)


Online version requires renewal  Northwardspirit  1 star

Even though I just bought a subscription, Time wants me to give credit card info for automatic renewal.


This app is a piece of junk  Jackson34442  1 star

I have a subscription to the print mag, & cant download the latest issue! What the hell??


Simpler than I thought it would be.  B0LK  5 star

I thought id have to call in and confirm my subscription... But no all needed was a name :D


One word, disappointment  Eeeeeern  1 star

User PlanoPilot pretty much summarised everything. I recently resubscribed because of how fun it was previously to read the magazine from iPad with all the interactive contents and great layout. Now the text is small, rich content is gone. The user experience drops from 100 to 0. No joke, if you're serious about your subscriber, you should put in as much effort to presentation as you do in content. Incredibly disappointed. I haven't written a review for very long, but the experience I used to have was very very good. Hard copy isn't the future. digital copy is, but you guys screwed up the app... going from hero to zero. Man..

Not serious about digital  a guy who reviews stuff  1 star

If Time Magazine was serious about digital releases they would make a version optimized for the iPhones aspect ratio. It's absurd that on my 5.5 inch screen there are two large black bars of unused space on the top and bottom of the magazine. I know this would involve reformatting, but if Time were serious about digital subscribers they would do it.

Bookmarks are needed!  Asian XTC  3 star

Bookmarks are still needed! The "Last Read" option doesn't always seem to work right. Also, as many have been stating the font is really small in recent digital issues. I have good vision but trying to read the long articles can get painstaking. I miss the interactive parts of the app, too. Please bring it back! I do like having the Time Magazine app, though ... My hard copies seem to make it to my APO address a whole month later.


Update  Merylras  5 star

Updated with great, user friendly (even on iPhone) article organization. Very excited! Thanks.


View  Flyman1950  2 star

Whoa.. I just bought a subscription to use on my phone and I'm shocked. I want to return it. It isn't adapted to mobile or tablets at all. I have to zoom in on the actual magazine, essentially. The font is too small, and zooming in causes me to accidentally turn the page. Look at other magazines and copy what they do with their apps. I can't even believe a magazine like Time would have this issue..

Pinch and zoom  Upper East Side Mike  1 star

I can deal with the pinch and zoom on my iPad, because it's close enough to readable, but I mostly read on my phone while commuting. I can't deal with it on my phone.

Roll back the digital version!  Ben Chung  1 star

Time is my go to magazine app on phone because of the digital version. Now it become small text PDF. What a dump


Terrible app and customer service  Kommunarska56  1 star

I have print and digital subscriptions. When I am abroad, I use the digital one. But I was unable to read the last six issues of the magazine because the app only offers a PDF view which is impossible for reading on the iPhone. A few times I complained to the customer service, as an answer I received copy paste messages that I have "to download the app from the App Store"! I wish I could return my time and money!


Font too small  Funkychick217  2 star

I like Time magazine and have been a long time subscriber. I have been reading it on the app for several years and have mostly liked the app until now. I do not like how small they have recently made the print and there is no way to increase the font size. I know that I can use the pinch & zoom feature, but guess what - I don't want to. I want to be able to read the magazine without zooming in and out and moving the page around to see everything. Time needs to either go back to the old format or add an option to increase the font size. Another few options I would like are a search function within an issue and select text to copy or look up (to get a definition or to research).


I was surprised by Time  beckinsbee  4 star

I watched a few of their videos about politics and now I think actually they are doing a good job. maybe managent changed or the world changed.


What Happened To This App?  gecox2  2 star

I used to love this app for reading Time. It was interactive and dynamic. Now, it's basically just a pdf with font that is too small to read. Why would you downgrade this app like this? Please restore. Thank you!


From best to worst!  cdgamx  1 star

It used to be my favorite magazine app because I could read it easily in my iPhone.Now it is just a pdf screenshot of the actual print magazine that I have to zoom in and out to make it readable in an iPhone.Now I wasted my money and stuck until my subscription expires unless they revert back to the old format.Do not buy a subscription especially if you're going to be reading in an iPhone.


Terrible  BMMHamburg  1 star

Wah!! I miss a few issues and come back to discover tiny print/font size and a number of my favorite sections missing??? The new year did not bring good things. Please. Have another look at these changes or this might be the end of my decades long relationship with the magazine. And that would be a shame, because we now need good reporting more than ever. TIME- It can't always be about the cheapest way to do things.

PDF View ONLY - Was a nice app before  Rp 905  1 star

This used to be a nice app that interacted nicely with a phone. It was easy to read and had some audio as well as great photos and the ability to move around in ways we are comfortable with in our phones. Now it's just a basic PDF file that is something you might have expected last century. They have gone backwards in Time and made this completely useless on a phone. I want my digital subscription retired. I will be getting my news elsewhere.
