Great content and enjoy the daily fresh content on the digital app with the subscription. I was disappointed to find that without warning I am asked to pay more for the news and politics stories. Feels like being nickeled and dimed after already paying for full digital content. Please address this feature. Otherwise well worth the subscription.
Previous experience was much better. This app is functional at best. The simple fact that full bleed pages can’t be viewed full screen is sloppy. The app feels like a simple PDF reader with limited additional functions. Media isn’t integrated in an interesting way. It isn’t fun to use and has no draw to keep you returning. I’m disappointed every time I open it - which is rarely anymore.
UI could be a bit better
As a loyal subscriber to Esquire since 1982, I am extremely disappointed by the subscription model that you have adopted. Many other magazines, including Time, GQ, and Sports Illustrated, allow their print customers to access their iPad versions for free. I will not participate in this misguided approach. To make matters worse, Esquire has completely destroyed what was once a nice iPad magazine app. Now that you have “improved” the iPad app, I cannot even view the content for which I have paid! I called this morning to cancel my digital subscription. However, with this level of incompetence by Esquire, I am not certain.
This was a 5 star app before MAZ took over. The new all doesn’t work properly, is buggy and doesn’t have the same ease of use as the previous app. Perviously, the digital subscription was free with my monthly magazine subscription and it also came with the black book for free as well. And on top of all that it worked great. Esquire has really dropped the ball with this one. MAZ is garbage, they need to drop them and go back to how it was.
What a huge disappointment! I used to go to the old app daily. I also subscribe to the magazine. This new app is so bad and so utterly useless... I will un-install it. I’m so disappointed I may cancel the magazine subscription as well. Whoever came up with the strategy behind this new approach for the app should be fired.
I received a free subscription and transferred it to digital. Received a confirmation that it had been converted and downloaded the app. There is no way to login. I have a username (email address) but the app wants a password. I didn’t receive one. There isn’t a password when I login with my subscription credentials at the support site. There is no password reset option. So I have a subscription to something I cannot read. Glad I didn’t waste money on this.
The worse paid subscription apps I have experienced. Maz seems not to get that there is a problem. The publisher seems not to care if the customer receives what is paid for.
Shockingly terrible app. Clearly designed by people who still use flip phones.
I renewed my digital subscription after about a year-long break. I was sorry to find the once feature-rich and engaging digital editions had been tossed aside and replaced with soulless page scans. I can’t even revisit my old issues in the format I loved and remembered. Instead, they too have been stripped bare. What remains is lifeless. Stay away or stick to print. It’s not worth the dollar to have both.
