Can't read articles and way too many ads
on January 11, 2012
I thought I'd give this a shot, right along with Details and The New Yorker, because of the free trial. Gotta say I'm very disappointed in it. Yes, it's fast and easy to use and the pictures look great but you can't read the articles without constantly zooming and scrolling. Plus, you have to scroll past countless ads just to get to any content. Maxim on the Fire is useless if you want to comfortably read the magazine. But if all you want are the pictures, then it's great. I gave it two stars instead of one because the photos look great. If I was rating it on legibility, then I'd have to go with one star. Compare this to The New Yorker, which is an app, and you'll see the difference between a great layout for the Fire and a horrible one.
