Scientific American App Reviews

  • Good enough if you can get it to recognize you as a subscriber

    By Ocean Renter
    I LOVE SciAm, so I’m stoked I can read on iPad. One minor issue is every time I open the app it doesn't recognize that I am a digital subscriber and asks me to pay for the issue. Workaround is to sign out and then in again.
  • App is terrible

    By catsueaig
    The app itself is terrible. You’re better off reading the content from a better app like the ones from apple or google.
  • Scam alert

    By Chris2468642
    I was offered four years of digital content if I subscribed. Once I did I was told no such offer exists. I even sent them a copy of the offer I responded to and they have yet to rectify the situation.
  • Confusing. Hard to use. Easy to make a mistake and get carved for issue you paid for already

    Confusing. Hard to use. easy to make a mistake and get charged for it an issue you’ve already paid for.
  • Great content, frustrating app

    By jdawgnickname
    I always enjoy the content of SA, and I liked the features of being able to download issues for offline use. I had about 60 hours of flying ahead so I said, hey why not subscribe and download some backlogs. So I downloaded 8 or so issues, ready to kill some time. I get on the plane and get on the app and my issues are gone.. I’m told they were automatically deleted to save space. I check my storage, had 9 or so GB of space left. Feel like a chump that wasted his money big time.
  • Secure login needs improvement

    By Mark8591
    Too often when launching the app you are forced to log in. This should not be so difficult. If a banking app allows for seamless touch ID, a magazine app should be just as easy.
  • Idiots

    By ajsjjjfjfjjffjfkkdk
    These fucwits could not work their way out of a paper bag. I will never buy this magazine in any format again... ever
  • User interface needs little basic attention

    By DrGeorgeB
    I would like to be able to dynamically increase/decrease font size. Also, be able to change font style to non-serif. Sometimes the typeset is hard to read. Adjust the lightness/darkness of the background and tone to adjust contrast, especially with a mind to the environment I’m reading in. All for now. Nice little app.
  • No. Zoom. Feature

    By m. armenta
    This. App is not any good. As there is no zoom. Feature Last year you could download your copy to acrobat And any column could be expanded. We need to go back to the old way.
  • Problem buying subscription

    By Eclectic Listener
    If I’ve done everything I know to make an app purchase, including up dating my payment method and all my other app purchases open, then I just wasted 20 minutes of my life trying to subscribe to a ‘scientific’ magazine. Fix it!
