  • Good update

    By charlesmuncy181
    Recent update fixed all my issues from previous versions. Thank you!
  • They NO listen to feedback!

    By HonestMannnnnnnn
    I have been reading PopSci for years in print. I switched the the app a few years ago. The app text is too small and the app does not support landscape mode. These features have been requested by users for years but PopSci has ignored the requests. I have waited long enough but I will wait no longer. When my subscription is up in March, I will be parting ways with PopSci in all its forms. Thanks again for not listening to PAYING CUSTOMERS feedback and simple requests!
  • Issue problems

    By YakAttack8889
    Once I start reading a issue I can not close out of the issue and go back to pick another issue. The only way I have been able to do this is fully deleting the app and reinstalling it. Then I can read the next issue. Anyone else have this problem?
  • It's crap

    By Rwtx
    Have print edition and there is no way to access digital edition without buying another subscription.
  • Great way to read Popsci

    By mhold3
    I've been using this app for over a year with no issues. After reading the physical magazine for many years I've completely switched to the app now. It's a fair price for the content in my opinion, especially if you have a yearly subscription.
  • Acts berserk when downloading

    By staunchnortheasterner
    Title says it all. Please do something about it!
  • Awful app by a "technology" magazine

    By neurodoc70
    This app is complete garbage. The access for print subscribers does not work properly at all. The password you create never gets recorded. You need to request your password by email to get a password that can actually be used. The sign in is unintuitive. The username is the email address you used to subscribe and not the name you used to subscribe. Changes pages does not work reliably. The app only works in portrait orientation, which is great for an iPhone but awkward on an iPad Pro with the Apple keyboard.
  • Awful

    By Estrato
    Even though I signed up with a valid account it won't let me log in to actually use it. After communicating with customer service for a week in an effort to get my account to actually work I am still unable to log in. Awful app don't bother downloading, just read the physical magazine. If I could give it 0 stars I would
  • What happened?

    By Kyle, Virginia
    Haven't had this app for some time, but good lord what happened to it? You used to be able to read articles on here without paying, now you have to pay? I realize they need to make money, but what happened to advertising? I feel as though science is already falling to the wayside in America, but now a popular science, no pun intended, magazine must limit even further those who would like access to their material?
  • PLEASE add support for landscape view!

    By Andy R. I.
    I love popular science! I have no problems with this app other than the absence of landscape view. Please add support for this! I often read it on my iPad and I would much rather be able to stand it up on the table in front of me with my case than hold my iPad out in front of me while I read and risk dropping it. Not to mention my arm gets quite tired.
