Great zine, horrible app
I got half-way through the first issue I dled and then the app crashed. Any time I try to open it, it crashes. Glad I hadn't bought a subscription yet. If the app worked I'd still only give it ⭐⭐⭐ because its only an over-glorified PDF of the print version. The content is fantastic but needs to be better translated into electronic format. In this digital age of technological marvels I expect more than just a picture of the pages I have to zoom in on. Check out The British Journal of Photography's app; there's so much more to e-zines than scanned pages.

took my money nicely … but won
the magazine is great … the app is buggy .. ditto with icreate, others in the same stable .. if they download, they're fine, if the print copy is unavailable ..

Text too small
App has great potential but is really only. Digitized version of magazine. Text is too small because it try's to display entire view of page, so when you tap to zoom in a bit text appears somewhat blurry. App is not interactive like some others.

Previous versions much better
When this App went into the Newsstand App in iOS4, the App went from good to bad. The App crashes frequently, or simply freezes, and user friendliness went way down with being tied to the stupid newsstand. I have several other stand alone photo magazine apps all nicely grouped together on my iPad, but not this one. I have to lunch the newsstand app, then the Pixel Mags app just to see my issues.

Fix the bugs please-crashes and locks since update
After installing the newsstand version of this eMag I was pleasantly surprised to discover I could log into my Pixel Mags account and download all the issues I purchased from their standalone app for this periodical without having to double dip. All functionality has been ported over as well, including bookmarking as well as seamless viewing in landscape mode on images that spread across 2 pages, a feature that other emag publishers seem to be struggling with and will hopefully improve. I'm an avid reader of this UK digital photography publication and will be subscribing. Thx Pixel Mags for retaining functionality and importing back issues for Newsstand! Keep up the good work!!! Update 1/27/12 After the latest update either locks or crashes sporadically. While this emag is still a personal favorite an update is needed to fix the bugs currently plaguing this title.
