    Great magazine, with more accessibility within the app for different mediums. Well worth the price of admission!
  • Strad review

    By bassrome
    Not enough double bass topics are covered. Too expensive.
  • Great magazine, great app.

    By chcurtis
    I love the Strad magazine. What's nice about the app is that it will play audio and video clips attached to the articles. A nice addition.
  • Violins

    By Fiddlebill
    Has always been an incredible resource.
  • Informative

    By redgerm
    ...and well thought out. Lots of interesting and up-to-date information about the strings world. I would give it five stars if it were a little bit more budget-friendly.
  • Crashes before it even starts.

    By rachelhe@
    Won't stay open long enough to even download an issue.
  • Doesn't work

    By Hhhhgffhuusdt
    App crashed a few times when I first tried to open it. Then I tried to download the July 2012 issue but got the Dec 2012 issue instead. When I tried to read it, the app crashed again. I've never experienced this with another app.
