Description

Free 30-day trial with every new subscription now available in the app. Skeptic magazine examines extraordinary claims, revolutionary ideas, promotes critical thinking, and serves as an educational tool for those seeking a sound scientific viewpoint. Each issue examines a specific theme and explores various social, scientific, and paranormal controversies. We investigate claims of the paranormal, pseudoscience, fringe groups, cults and claims between: science, pseudoscience, junk science, voodoo science, pathological science, bad science, non science and plain old nonsense. Our contributors are top experts in their fields—leading scientists, scholars, and investigative journalists. The magazine has been called “stimulating and provocative" by Carl Sagan, “clearly superior…gutsy” by Edward O. Wilson, and “the best journal in the field” by Stephen Jay Gould. Our editor-in-chief, Dr. Michael Shermer, has been called the most prominent skeptic in America, and his monthly column in Scientific American, and his numerous books and media appearances have made Skeptic a respected voice in academia. Included in each issue of Skeptic is Junior Skeptic magazine. While written for younger readers, it provides an outstanding summary of classical paranormal topics, and is one of the favorite parts of the magazine for adults as well. Its editor, Daniel Loxton, recently won Canada’s prestigious Best Science Book Award for Young Readers. ---------------------------------------------- This is a free app download.

Finally, FACTS

5
Refreshing to read sober analysis. What a gift to have science based critical analysis on a range of issues.

Skeptic Magazine

5
Great articles assessing the truth or falsehood of all kinds of theories and assertions, with the truth being the only guiding light. Articles you’ll find nowhere else.

Skeptic is great, the app is not

2
The reader mode on the Skeptic app is mediocre at best. It changes article formatting in confusing ways and has typos that are not present in the magazine. The app developer has not issued an update in over a year. Does this mean that they think the app is already perfect?

Well explained articles

5
They go to the trouble to dig into the subjects related to pseudoscience and expose the tools charlatans use against us. A valuable source of info.

Critical thought.

5
Great thinking outside of the bubble.

Great to have the digital version

4
Since I read nearly everything on my iPad or phone, the digital version of this journal makes reading the it much more accessible. I can easily read it in bed with even with the lamp turned off. I also appreciate the Reader view feature that turns an article into a single long page for scrolling. The only most important feature missing for me is a highlighter. When I read non-fiction I always want to annotate what I'm reading for later review. It's great that the app allows for copying and pasting selected text, but a highlighter is also needed.

Should be part of regular education

5
The education of a society should include technical knowledge of how to continue educating yourself and how not to be fooled by bad or misleading information. This magazine does just that. From articles of atheism, pseudo science, and myths to real scientific knowledge, Skeptic magazine helps me wade through the BS to arrive at reality.

DO NOT SUBSCRIBE!

1
DO NOT subscribe to “pocket mag”! Expensive frequent charges, and very difficult to unsubscribe. I was charged a fortune for my “trial”.

Great Magazine

5
The magazine is great -- One of my very favorite. App makes my entire library available whenever and wherever I am. Just open my iPad.
By PhilofSci

A necessary evil

5
It's amazing that something like this is even necessary, and it is very much so as this country seems to be devolving into the Dark Ages. How can we have grown so much in the last two thousand years and now seem to be going back to many of the values and superstitions humanity overcame. Science is being devalued, an elite 1 percent of rich people are ruling and the middle class is shrinking, and religion that had evolved more into charitable organizations are now returning to authoritarian attacks on morals and taking over politics. Skeptic Magazine is the antidote for all of that fighting the disease and blight of ignorance and providing a determined resistance to the realities of vaccination deniers, human global warming deniers, charlatans and hucksters, and so much more. I had stacks of Skeptics going back years but now with their availability with a simple App I've replaced the stacks with a subscription and back issues on an iPad. I can now take my library with me wherever I go. Evolution is a good thing. Devolution is stupid.
