Bead & Button magazine was the first jewelry magazine I purchased, back when it first debuted. I own almost every copy and always dreamed of having digital versions that were more portable, safe from dust and dampness and easier to magnify.

That being said, there are a couple different ways to have a digital copy. One is Amazon's method, which is like a PDF, and the other is an App-based type, which you can use on your iPad (sorry, but I don't know if this is available for Android devices).

My preferred format is Amazon's standard PDF type. The main reason being that I like to turn my iPad in portrait orientation and read my books and magazine in a larger format, just like the print version. The Amazon version will resize itself automatically and there is actually much less need to magnify stuff.

The Bead & Button App won't allow this. You read in landscape mode only, and while you can magnify, in certain areas, the magnification area is constrained, which makes the experience somewhat disappointing, Also, some content requires a left-to-right swipe, while other content has a scroll icon and wants you to move up and down through it. It's awkward in that way, because the experience is not consistent across all the pages.

You can, however, get a free sample with the app and see if its more to your liking. I'm sticking with the Amazon version, however.

My review is not against the magazine but against the Amazon Newstand version. Every once in a great while, I want to make something from the magazines. I discovered that you can't print a single page nor can you transfer a copy of the magazine to your laptop so you can print a pattern. I've had this subscription for around 4 years up until yesterday. From now on, I will just wait until the following year and buy the magazines on a DVD or download. Zinio is a much better option! You can read your magazines on any device and print a page here and there if you want.

B&B is a great magazine. I have been a subscriber for several years. The projects are well photographed and have detailed instructions. So much eye candy! Great for ideas, learning techniques, and inspiration. Covers every type of jewelry technique you can imagine. I started stringing, quickly progressed to wirework, PMC, & polymer clay. My true love is beadweaving & bead embroidery, but I will never stop learning new skills to incorporate into my work. Thank you Bead & Button for teaching me & helping me to evolve as an artist! I have been using the kindle version for the past few issues and unfortunately we had a glitch. I payed up front but the company continues to charge me monthly. Still working on that, but not such a big deal, I know it will be resolved.

This magazine is one I have sometimes picked up at the craft store. I took a chance and downloaded a copy on my Kindle Fire HD and was totally surprised that the Kindle format works great with this. The photos are crisp and clear and you can enlarge them to show the details. The colors are stunning. The issue I picked had beginner projects as well as some amazing advanced ones. This magazine would appeal to anyone interested in learning about beading. It has clear instructions and tutorials for beginners. Some of the instructions include pictures. The projects are not just average, run-of-the-mill type. They were innovative and appealing. If you are an expert beader, you will find plenty of inspiration. If you were hesitant to try a magazine like this on Kindle Fire, go ahead and give it a go. You'll find that you enjoy it just as much as having the actual paper magazine--but if you want to save it, you don't need any space on your shelf at home! Awesome for crafters. You have more space for materials!

I find the discussions about the frequency of this magazine to be very amusing - bi-monthly means every two months (just as those of you who get paid "bi-weekly" get a check very two weeks.) Semi-monthly means twice a month. No matter the frequency, I love this magazine and had to quit my print subscription when my collection became larger than my space! I am so excited to now have the digital version. The photos are incredible and the content always fresh, exciting & easy to follow.

This is a great magazine for those wanting to pick up tips; such as color selection, how to work with materials and new techniques. The unfortunate thing is a subscriber who doesn't realize that bi-monthly indicates you get 6 issues a year.

Personally, I pick this magazine up from the newstand as jewelry isn't my primary focus but I do enjoy when it covers my interests. (Polymer clay)
