For someone who lives the nomad life style, technology here really is a life saver!! I'm able to keep on hand and read any issue anywhere at any time. I'm normally not a fan of tech pad gadgets, but this is great! Friendly user interface, no glitches nor hiccups that I've noticed. Great deal!!
This is the one magazine I eagerly anticipate each month. Stunning photography, excellent and informative articles, and more. Highly recommend to all climbing enthusiasts! UPDATE: seems the overly contrasty photo issue has been corrected. Good work, guys!!
For the last few months issues, the images have too much contrast. It's really noticeable with the cover of the November 2015 issue. Initially the cover looks good, but then the details load and the contrast is boosted way too much. Detail is lost in the dark spaces, in this instance most of the rock. I don't notice this In older issues, just the last few months. I'll be going back to the print issues if this continues.
I think that this is an excellent app for anyone who enjoys the varied sports of rock climbing and mountaineering. The app is very stable and the content is excellent. I highly recommend this app to anyone.
meh, nothing special. same as print
Love this magazine. R&I covers everything and everybody in the climbing world - sport, trad, alpine, it's all there. Every article is written by a climber, and the language of each article reflects this. R&I has a tone and theme to all of its articles and stories, and it's that the life of a climber is nothing elegant or magnificent, but for a climber, there is nothing greater in life than to climb, period. "The real heroes of climbing are people who climb until they drop, who hold climbing as the antidote for this slave-like way the world is going - this politically correct, pathetic, SUV-ridden, color-coded two-week holiday-and-back-to-work nonsense." -Steve Haston, Issue 215
Reinstalled several times. App won't finish loading magazine. Luckily still receiving print magazine.
Great mag but subscription pricey
It is much better than a paper magazine.
