  • Good Luck!

    By PodHed
    Good luck trying to sign in if are trying to access your existing subscription (not purchased through the app). I spent 10 minutes and wasn’t able to. First I had to activate using my confirmation number and zip code. Then the app said to log in. That didn’t work at all (using the same email and password that I had successfully set up on Wired’s website). Someone should be boxed for this inane and broken activation process.
  • UN-Wired

    By RazorVault
    After repeated attempts to register and sign into the fully paid subscription I already have all I get is an offer to pay more for a digital subscription after the app recognized my current subscription. This is about as weak as it gets.
  • I like the digital design

    By Mikie Two Shoes
    Reviewing version 4.7.2 Wired is using a portrait mode design where you move between articles by swiping left and right and read a single article by scrolling vertically. This is the first I’ve seen this design and I LOVE IT! There are many digital magazines and apps therefore, on the App Store. This is the first one I’ve enjoyed using. There are a ton of bad reviews for this app. I’m new to it. Maybe Wired introduced this style more recently than the negative reviews. Many of the reviews complain about not having a landscape mode. You can’t always get what you want, but sometimes you get what you need (paraphrasing the RS). The current version is a good app with a great design.
  • Text is too small

    By awksedperl
    just as with the print edition, the text is too small. It should be resizable in the app.
  • What?

    By Whiskey Robber
    All the issues downloaded on my iPad don’t show up on the iPhone version of the app. Come on man. You want people to pay for a product that they can’t access. A magazine about tech that can’t produce an app that is technically sound. Welcome to irony.
  • Developers: please permit zooming in!

    By RabbiJustus
    Irony: Wired content this month talks all about needs of older folk, including accessible tech. But the iPad wired app prevents zooming in, so on my iPad mini the text is barely readable by my 45 year old eyes. Stop the madness and allow readers to pinch and zoom!
  • Images look terrible

    By solipse.
    On the new iPhone edition the images are so compressed it looks like trash.
  • New version crashes.

    By Billy Boy Blue
    Now version 7 is new! But it crashes on an iPad so it’s useless. Hope you fix it soon.
  • Tilt my head sideways? No thanks.

    By CPSolver
    I’m a big fan of Wired magazine, but how is it possible that a publication that keeps me informed about the digital world is not able to hire developers who can write code that detects that my iPad is oriented in landscape mode?
  • Embarrassingly Bad App

    By Gleim
    I have a subscription to Wired and received an email to get the digital copy of the magazine with this app - but once I downloaded it and started the onboarding process, I realized this app is poorly designed and I would prefer not to attempt to read a magazine on it. The onboarding steps have you enter in your subscriber ID and Zip Code - fine, although that could have been populated straight from the email explaining me how to set up the app. After that, I had to enter an email and password, and I got an error that I already have an account (I don’t). So, my only choice was to reset my password. Once I chose that step, I got a password reset email which I used to change my password, and upon re-entering the app discovered there is no back button from the password reset page. At that point, I hadn’t even set up my account and I had reached a point where I have to force quit the application to continue signing up. After that force restart, I had to type in my account number AGAIN from the email, and I just deleted the app. If onboarding is that poor, I can see why this app is rated so poorly. It’s a shame because I really enjoy Wired itself, and a magazine app should be a simple thing to design with a small investment. The fact it’s this bad shows they don’t really care about digital.
