If you're a fan of Maximum PC, and want to move up a notch (in my opinion), subscribe to the Nook Color or Kindle Fire digital version. I'd been a reader of the magazine in print for several years, but my subscription lapsed about a month before I got a Kindle Fire. Now, I'm glad because I find the Kindle version even more useful than the print version.

The "native" mode presents the pages in "page view," which is essentially a full-color reproduction of the printed pages of the magazine. Every page is included - even the ads. Since Maximum PC is one of the few publications where even the ads can be pretty educational, that's a good thing. However, on the Kindle Fire's 7-inch screen, the pages are pretty hard to read. You can use the traditional two-finger "pinch zoom" gesture to zoom them up to a readable size and then pan around the magnified page. Double-tapping on any page zooms into it. Double-tapping again toggles back to the original view. This works, but can be tedious. Swiping to a new page returns the magazine to the "fit-to-window" size. Even when you immediately go back to a previous page which you had magnified, it no longer will be.

That's where "Text View" is a lifesaver. Tapping on any page brings up the menu that allows switching between Page View and Text View. Text View shows the text and pictures from the articles, but independently of the magazine page's layout. The text is the same basic size used with books (and can be changed in the same manner as with books). In this mode, the "pinch-zoom" gesture does not work - just as it doesn't work with books. For text that's fine, but images sometimes need to be zoomed in to read. Clicking on an image will open in on a separate page. Rotating the page will re-size the picture, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great content for a great price December 23, 2011
I've picked up this magazine once or twice over the last year and enjoyed it. Decided it might be a nice reference for idle time while traveling. Love the breadth of topics and depth of the articles. Nice tricks for maintaining my computer, and informative pieces regarding current and future tech. Highly recommended to those that are interested in keeping their tech current...

5.0 out of 5 stars Best cutting edge magazine with gaming always in mind. January 9, 2012
This magazine has been the hands down most entertaining and best read for PC technology AND gaming that has ever existed. I have been a long time reader, and will continue to be so even if it did not come kindle compatible. But thankfully it is and the more I love them. Good job guys on making an amazing read, day in, and day out!

For everyone, there is a kindle app for Android and it allows you to get MaximumPC.
It even works on your PC so I am tired of people saying that they don't have a Kindle to get the download on. I read MaximumPC in print and except for missing some of the photos love the Kindle version. It is nice to carry your tablet and read when you have down time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the best computer magazine around! June 2, 2014
I have been a subscriber to Maximum PC magazine since it's creation, including when it was called Boot. It has provided me many years of enjoyable and informative information about the many changes in technology, written in a style that makes even the most complex subject easy reading. As my current "physical" magazine subscription was expiring I decided to try the Kindle version to read using the Kindle app on my iPad. It is an exact duplicate to the printed version, including the advertisements, and is easy on the eyes....literally! As a senior citizen I benefit from being able to enlarge the text size, something the printed magazine obviously lacks. The only downside is reading in bright sun but that is Apple's "fault!" I highly recommend Maximum PC for anyone interested in the evolution of computer technology. Try the digital download version if you have a compatible device. You won't regret it!

I love Kindle for books and finally decided to try a magazine. Long story short, I won't be buying another. First of all, you can't view this on cloud reader; I.e. a PC or anything via web browser. Secondly, you only get text view on Kindle for android, at least that's the case with my nexus 7 (no flash maybe?). This same mag is available on Zinio for the same price and compatable with all platforms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the good. November 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
Like the print just without all those adds. If you like the articles in the print mag this is the way to go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great all around magazine for computer users. March 28, 2014
Always liked Max/pc, they give you all the info on new products and anything to do with computers and tablets. Then you have the readers mail, where questions and problems involving computers are asked and fixed. Then you have the reveiw section where everything from led monitors to laptops to video games are reviewed. This magazine has stuff for everyone. I am switching from a magazine to e-reader. But have been a fan for over 5 years. keep up the good work.

I am wondering the same thing. As I have loved this mag for some time and thinking that books look great and the pics that I've seen are colorful and of real good quality, I'd like to switch my paper copy sub for this digital subscription. Any thoughts? I have gotten the Kindle Fire 2nd gen.
