App Reviews

  • Better than most magazine apps... but still worse than a pdf

    By Apoolla
    This is better than most magazine apps developed by so called Maz such as hbr, inc, Forbes etc. But still, magazines within this app are nothing more than scanned image files. Even a basic pdf has more interactivity and functionality.
  • Used to be much better

    By TonyMan13
    I still like Time but a while ago the format changed to a kind of two dimensional, flat looking document. The biggest problem is there is no marking pages for later reading. I get a few magazines on my iPad and this is the only one missing that feature. I like to browse the issue, mark pages, then read at my leisure. Now I have go through the whole issue and try to remember what I wanted to read. Another problem is the deletion of old issues. The process for this is clunky and confusing. C’mon Time, this isn’t hard stuff to correct.
  • New iPad app a major step backwards

    By holmes4
    Time recently replaced its iPad app with a very different one. While the new one makes reading the magazine somewhat easier (including a “reader view”), it has a major flaw - you can’t see new issues unless you log out and in again each time! The old app would alert you when a new issue was available and made download easy. The new one won’t - and worse, when you look at the cover view for a new issue, you’ll see a lock icon and a demand for payment, even if you’re a current subscriber. In order to download and read the issue, you have to log out and then in again. Even after doing so, it exhorts you to subscribe, even though you are a subscriber! I contacted the app’s help desk, and they told me I had to uninstall and reinstall each time! (Thankfully that isn’t the case.) I can’t understand how such a serious usability flaw made it out the door, much less why it hasn’t been fixed in several months! The help desk was unhelpful when I asked what the plans were for fixing the bug.
  • Terrible

    By Mike D19691986
    This app stinks. I download issues, then they disappear when I’m offline so I can’t read them. The update from the old version was not necessary and made the experience ten times worse. I only use this because the new issue is available Friday, but the mailed copy doesn’t come until Monday or Tuesday. This magazine is going down the tubes.
  • Did you fire your entire software team and replace it with a parrot?

    By nawilco
    In the ten years or so that apps have existed and I have used them, this is the most astounding regression in quality I have ever, and probably will ever witness in any sort of software. WOW.😶
  • Hate the new version

    By K2Rooster
    New version has gone backwards for the iPad. It seems super slow to bring up issues and readability is worse. I still don't know how to delete old issues as gear icon is gone. I enjoy reading my issues offline on the airplane and it is focused on giving me warnings on not being online and it is slow to bring up the stored issues
  • Major step backwards with new app

    By CynthiaJean
    Sometime in December 2017 the Time iPad and iPhone app changed. This new app is a huge step backwards - user unfriendly, have to re-sign in to download, and it keeps indicating “Buy or subscribe to Time” even when signed in. Display is unwieldy. Bring back the prior version which was great. You will lose subscribers in droves if you don’t fix this. Look at your ratings... lots of 1’s and if there were a zero, I’d assign that.
  • Miss the previous version

    By michael-f11
    Was good until they changed it… trying to be nice, but it really isn’t very good now.
  • New app is awful

    By Jcarter387
    This latest update has made it almost impossible to read my favorite news magazine. Takes forever to load. Doesn't return to the same page next time you login. Settings don't give you any options over the app. The list goes on. Of course there is no way to return to the previous version that worked just fine for me.
  • Every major update makes it worse

    By Ilonkam
    I wish I could roll back to the last iteration of this app. The new one is incredibly slow and clunky. I’m not impressed with the reader mode and it’s annoying that it tries to remind me I can use reader mode on every article. The app seems to get periodic amnesia that I pay for a subscription and needs me to sign in again to download the magazines I want to read. It’s inconsistent in saving my spot if I close an issue wanting to come back to it later. They also did away with bookmarks without warning, so I lost the book reviews list I had kept in the app. Would love if Time would go back to two versions of this app ago... in 2016, they were creating issues optimized for iPad viewing with digital content. In 2017, I was disappointed that this was done away with, but at least the app was still useable. And now, I’m disappointed with the app altogether.
