Forbes Magazine App Tips & Tricks

Forbes Magazine Reviews


App is not intuitive.  JCupset200  1 star

I have had problems for some time with the Forbes app. Tonight it said I had to pay/buy an issue despite a subscription I have. The FAQs suggest restoring purchases and if that does not work to delete and re download the app. Restoring did not work so I deleted and re downloaded. I could not successfully sign in because I must have forgotten my password. The FAQs say to click on "forgot password". There is no such link on the sign on page. Forbes needs a new and better interface. Not a good reflection at all for great magazine content.


Waste of money  Ttstewart1  1 star

Nothing works the way it should. Links don't open, issues don't load. Why can't they just fix the issues?? Does no one read these reviews at Forbes?!?!

The Way Music Should Be

This is the worst app I have seen. Forbes attempts to pride itself on its social engagement but this iPad app is pathetic and doesn't work. It forced me to cancel my subscription.

Perfect way to get their web content.


Forbes Has Become Garbage  Yano10  1 star

People don't need a timed quote ad every time they want straight up information. Let spam take over the hottest topic to generate ad revenue is down disgusting! You expect people to pay for this trash in your app now your image as a company is ruined? Ridiculous!


I would give zero stars if I could  ShahinKohan  1 star

I am not able to restore the purchases.


Horrible  Teddytessa  1 star

Hasn't updated to the current magazine. I contacted them and they said not their problem. Call Forbes. We just sold you the app. Asked Forbes why they aren't updating. Ok. Called Forbes. Said app people problem. Call iTunes. What????? I'm done.

Gui Barthel

It's worst than a rss feed  Gui Barthel  1 star

The new version of the app is horrible. It's poorly designed, the articles lost the look and feel and you can't browse through the magazine anymore. I've just canceled my subscription.


Horrible Interface, A waste of Money  insearchofgoodmusic  1 star

Forbes should pay us to endure the crashing, freezing, and constant share options that keep popping up on the page like spam ads. An additional 9.99$ per month is obscene and a low blow for this less than par app. Completely unexpected that Forbes would present something so shabby. Don't waste your money. Forbes please refund my money. Don't don't get this app. The magazine itself is looking a little weak lately also. Very little material on each page.

Needs free access to digital  John D 3  2 star

I bought the print edition Forbes a few years ago, but was put off that I had to pay extra for an iPad version. Just reviewed it again today and it still appears to be the case, so I'm passing again.


Interface difficult to use  PK2112  2 star

Concur with the other review about the app interface. Content is great but the app makes th app very difficult to use. Just slightly touching it pops up the interface that wants you to share, cut/copy content etc. I understand they want people to share content but it feels forced and that they are trying to hard to have people share. Will read mag on Next Issue until they updated app

Horrendous  Joe in wilmington  1 star

I am a long time Forbes print subscriber and software engineer and have given up trying to navigate this app. Please provide a simple way to navigate and return to TOC!!!!


One of the worst magazine apps !!!  Vic17  1 star

It is absolutely mind bugling that Forbes with all the financial backing and smart writers can't manage the simple and workable app for the magazine. Somebody in the company needs overhaul the app - starting from simplifying the jumpy and overly crazy sharing set-up and finishing by making the magazine readable off-line. I love to read Forbes on my iPad or iPhone but every time it is a struggle with unnecessary app "features". It is apparent to me that nobody that matters in the magazine staff never actually tried to use their own app, otherwise they would flip the lid and change the development team.


Great Mag / Terrible App  Jwruojv  1 star

This app has a crazy interface that tries to force the user to share content. Simply trying to zoom in or out and flipping pages is almost impossible. I can't wait for Forbes to rewrite this app and make a simple reader like every other magazine.


Great App  IsaacAjayi  5 star

Great app great magazine, handy and educative


It a really good magazine  Prettyperfpink  5 star

It awesome and so good right


Basically useless  EdG0000  1 star

Not sure why this app exists. You get way more functionality and usability by just visiting the website, even on a phone browser.


Impossible to read offline  GT COS  1 star

Very hard to use. The convergence of media with all the links is a royal pain in the neck.
