This app is a ripoff will not load after paying almost $37 for subscription.
App is fine but release date for digital can be three weeks after print version. Very dissatisfied with purchase. If you have Beckett online just stick with that.
Beckett Baseball is the insiders guide to baseball card collecting. The digital version not only gives you the complete issue found on the newsstand, but also an expanded price guide in the back portion. Now you can always check the prices of all the years of all the different company's card sets. Basically it is a must for the serious card collector. Great articles and a guide to contacting the major collectors for any of your card needs.
The new issue is available 2 weeks or more after it hits the book shelf! I rather pay $2 more an issue then buy cards that went down in value because I didn't know, do to basing it on the previous issue!
Can't get through four pages without the app closing involuntarily. Very frustrating!!
Save your money,, they don't upload issues on time. The February issue is out in less than 2 weeks and they are still on December This is a ripoff
I love the Beckett magazine. Been a big card collector since I was a little kid. The app makes it easier and less space consuming then collecting the actual magazine. I give it 4 stars it's great but there is some room for improvement.
I hadn't purchased a Beckett in about 15 years but I am trying to get my 5 year old into the hobby. I looked in several stores trying to find a paper issue but they are almost nonexistent. So I figured I'd give the app a whirl...big mistake. There are a number of issues with this app: 1) Scrolling through the pages to find a year and set is tedious to say the least...especially on the small screen of a phone or tablet. There really needs to be tabs or an index that can take you right where you need to go. There are so many sets now that just going through one year can be a pain. 2) As mentioned previously, this format it not good for a price guide. The writing and numbers are horribly small. So small that when you zoom in you only see a tiny portion of the page. 3) The app freezes constantly! And by constantly I mean every 1 to 2 minutes. Absolutely ridiculous. This is the last Beckett I buy digitally. Worst $8 I've spent in a long time.
I'm no longer able to open any of my issues or buy new ones without the app freezing & shutting down on its own. Now I have numerous issues I have no access to. Money well spent (sarcastic tone). Thanks a lot (sarcastic tone). If I could give zero stars I would. Update 11/6/15 When I open the new issue it will not stay open for more than 30 seconds and crashes. What a waste of money
Beckett is a HUGE company that has been in business for decades and they can't hire someone to write a decent functional app?!! Their app is HORRIBLE!! These magazine subscriptions are HORRIBLE!! They're both completely useless!! Shame on them!! Don't download and waste your time and/or money! Luckily I paid thru PayPal so I got a full refund!
