The MagPi Raspberry Pi Reviews

    Don’t buy if using iPhone!

    If you plan to read MagPi on an iPhone, DO NOT buy the subscription. The digital subscription is really only usable on a big screen. Even then I does not take advantage of the screen orientation. I sent the developer a question asking if this was usable on iPhone - specifically if the content formatted for the screen. I never received a reply. I purchased a single issue to test. It is just a digital representation of the magazine. I want to support the Raspberry Pi foundation but the digital subscription is not a usable option.

    Money Grab

    I paid for a subscription but old issues don’t stay downloaded and I am asked to pay for them over just to read. Emails to support go unanswered. Don’t waste your money. Update after a month... still no response from support, another email to them sent.

    Bad support

    Lost access to editions I had already paid for. Emailed support and after a week still no response. Cancelled my subscription and will just download the free version from now on. If you’re going to take money for something that is normally free you need to provide a measurable advantage.

    Don’t buy this 🙁

    I commend the raspberry pi foundation’s commitment to free education by making the PDF issues available for free on the raspberry pi web site, but the PDF download button is disabled in the mobile app. Why discriminate against mobile app users vs. laptop users? 🙁

    Works well. Can't read for free even when you can on their site

    The fact that I cannot just download the issue for free like I can on their site is a bad move. I understand that they have to make money, and it is for a great cause but I do not want to buy a physical issue of a magazine. I will buy and donate when I can but forcing like this is not a great move. I was looking for a way to organize all the issues I download rather than just have a folder in my dropbox

    Really like the magazine however I bought the subscription using my iPhone but can seem to remember my login and can't move this over to my iPad without it. I've not found a way to recover a password or login. No response when I email support on their website . Really poor interface for such an interesting magazine .... Basically wasted $35 at this point..

    Great app but...

    Not all of the magazines are free and I don't know why because u can get the pdf of every magazine and then save it to iBooks on THEMAGPI website. But otherwise great app

    Paid in app purchase never got sub

    Sent emails to support at both Magpi and apple. Never heard back. I'll be doing a chargeback. Can't believe they won't even respond. Really was hoping to have this help me get started on my new Pi3.

    App has issues

    (Original review follows; update after that with workarounds and notes) Not recommended at this time. Tried on IOS 9.02 and 9.1 with IPad Mini 4. Purchased two issues and neither will load. When try to repurchase app says they are already bought and will be reloaded. At that point app freezes. Reported problem twice to vendor with no response. It's a good magazine but the app and supporting vendor are not doing their jobs. Out $7.98 for two issues I cannot download -- money is not the issue but it's a bad policy precedent on the vendor's part. Reporting issue to Apple is my next move. (updated October 30 2015) After the above noted issues with support, I changed paths and reported the issue directly at the app vendor site. This resulted in a reasonably quick reply with an acceptable solution. While the freezing issue still exists, the simple workaround is to do an all purchase reload. The restore purchases button is "hidden" in the "Subscribe" dialog page -- click "Subscribe" and the button is there. Not exactly intuitive or obvious but at least it works. Note that restored issues show as "Free" after restoration. I've upgraded my score to reflect these points but feel the app still needs work.
