Great idea, but a poor selection of magazines.
Nice ❤️ good job
After trying several buffet-style digital magazine services over the past few years, I had just about given up on anyone pulling it off. Zinio - terrible interface, priced per magazine. Texture - few titles of interest. Magzter - scam. Finally, Readly comes along and hits a home run - great titles, great interface, great price! Readly's offerings are mostly high-quality British mags, superior in every way to today's American mags, which are 90% ads and 10% unsubstantive filler "content". Readly's interface is very intuitive, but most importantly, it gets out of the way and lets you enjoy the magazines... but I do recommend the largest tablet you can get - I used my Readly subscription as an excuse to spring for a new iPad Pro 12.9", and the entire experience is glorious.
I love the app when it works. Lately I’ve been getting a black screen when I open the app and there’s nothing I can do to make the app work. I’ve done all of the recent updates and it’s still happening. Is this common??
Few good titles and half want download
Love the app
Used to have texture which was bought by Apple. This blows them both out of the water!
I have been a subscriber for years to two rival magazine readers. Then I tried Readly, amazing software, elegant in design and use added to an extensive list of titles from around the world with titles the competition cannot match. Never going back.
Little value for high price. I wanted an all access service to popular American magazines, plus a few niche, to replace Texture, now Apple news. Readly costs 11.99/mo, more than Texture, and offers a fraction of quality publications. Ninety percent of the magazines are British, including fashion magazines like Bazaar, Marie Claire and Vogue. Popular mags like In Style, Glamour, Allure, Bon Jour, Vegetarian Times, Better Homes & Gardens, and Family Circle are NOT even listed! Oh, but they offer a watered down version of Playboy. Readly is heavy on British tabloids, guns and hunting, British cooking and health mags, and tech mags. The only pro was the random, niche special interest issues on things like music, crime, history, and specific technology like iPads.
There is such a plethora of magazines on here that you won’t know where to begin.
