Description

The Wire is an independent, monthly music magazine dedicated to informed, intelligent coverage of a wide range of progressive, adventurous and non-mainstream musics. Although The Wire is a London based publication, it serves an international readership. The iPad/iPhone edition brings you selected pages from the latest issue as soon as it is published. Within the application you can upgrade to full access, which brings you every page of the issue and a searchable archive of every issue of The Wire published since issue one from summer 1982. Issues are not sold individually - for the duration of your subscription you have access to every issue in this archive. During your subscription you can sync back issues to your device. These will remain in place if your subscription expires, unless your device removes them (for example when running low on disk space). Re-downloading issues requires a current subscription. • Swipe or tap the page edges to flip to next/previous page. • Use the animated thumbnail view to flick through the pages. • Pinch or double-tap pages to zoom. • Switch between single or double-page view. • Search the current issue or the archive. • Tap any page links to web sites, email addresses, phone numbers or maps. • Tap contents-page links to jump to a particular article. • Sync the latest issue to your device for offline reading (requires wi-fi). • Sync additional back issues by tapping the stars beside their names (requires wi-fi). • Network connection required otherwise. We recommend first running the app within a wi-fi area so it can sync the latest issue to your device - after that you can use it anywhere. Subscribers will receive new issues automatically via Newsstand. Subscriptions are available within the app at the following prices: £3.99 per month £29.99 per year In addition, please note the following standard features of auto-renewable iTunes subscriptions: • Your payment will be charged to your iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase. • Subscriptions will renew automatically unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. • Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. • You can manage your subscriptions and turn off auto-renewal by going to your Account Settings in iTunes after purchase. • No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during active subscription period.

    And follow suit! This magazine is too good to have such a lousy reading experience on the app. Please fix ASAP!
  • Extraordinary content compromised by a terrible app

    The superb information, reviews, stories, and interviews provided by The Wire suffer to the point of being unusable in this clumsy app. Impossibly slow load times and raster text (RASTER TEXT!) fail to keep pace with even sub-par contemporary electronic publications. This product makes a strong case for the continuation of the print medium.
  • Cutting-edge content, antiquated format

    Great content but annoying to use due to snail-paced load times and clumsy navigation. The publisher should look at a really well-done example (New Yorker for one) to learn how to do this properly.

    Ignore the low star ratings if you recognize the actual music this mag covers, because it's the best of its kind, for those of us that appreciate the genres they highlight.
  • Long time subscriber - disappointed by app

    I love the content of The Wire. In fact it's the only mag I subscribe too. I was excited at the prospect of having downloadable versions of the entire back catalogue. Unfortunately, the app is so crippled and slow that it makes a delightful reading experience of the print edition into a real pain. Please Wire - have someone write you a proper app!
  • Exact Editions apps stink

    Why do so many good magazines use these guys? It's better to not have an app at all than to foist something like this on the world. Please, Wire, release a proper app.
  • Great content, poor app

    The paper edition is beautiful. The content is worth the price, but this app is wretched. It feels like reading a series of JPEGs. Text does not reflow if you want the font larger: you simply have to zoom in, like reading a newspaper with a magnifying glass. Links and the table of contents are similarly tacked on. Obvious enhancements like sound clips are not made. I hope they re- approach this app in the near future. Stick to paper for now.
  • I Used to be a Paper Subscriber

    I would like to subscribe to this App, but there is no "example" content by which I may evaluate whether the 40 buck subscription is worth it. I know the paper version is totally worth it. The Wire is the kind of magazine you read cover to cover. Give us a small, tiny example of what were paying for. Thanks.
