  • Lots of basic features missing (like search!)

    By sashaki
    As others have said, it’s clunky and limited in customization. But the clincher for me was that you can’t search for articles — there is a search, but it will bring up zero results, not even the articles featured in the app.
  • Why not rotate view

    By Immediate Solutions
    So why can’t the view be rotated on iPad or even iPhone from portrait to landscape? When using a 13” iPad Pro it would be logical to have landscape mode since treated as a laptop screen more than a kindle / nook reader.
  • Good content, bad UX

    By Donandante
    For a publication about technology, leaves something to be desired, beyond simply having good content. Tapping on links punches you out to the browser (seriously, people??), it is not easy to scan available content at a glance without mindless scrolling (no sort options, no top stories, or highlighted stories... a big feature story is presented in the same cookie cutter feed as any other story, which makes me less likely to find and read it), and the "experimental" tab feels very much like a failed experiment, because I keep tapping on the video's play button and nothing happens, so I can't even get to watch the Wired editor explain to me what the tab was supposed to be about. I hope the app improves for a better experience.
  • It’s pathetic

    By Ozmirage
    . . . to see how well Wired’s writers do their jobs, and how their IT department lets them down. “Watch a video with our Editor-in-chief!” How? there’s no link. “Read our library of great stories past!” How? there’s no search function! This lamer is owned by Condé Nast, right? Who also own The New Yorker Today, the best-integrated print/online operation on earth! What is UP with GetWired??
  • This App is Amazons market place

    By Zataras777
    This app is a brain wash for Amazons market place. First thing in the morning there’s at least five articles about Amazons products, and you can’t turn off Gear from the feed. This is just aggressive sales strategies since we are already paying to read Wired’s content.
  • Constantly requires that you log in

    By Muskatinho
    Never seen an app from an established company that is incapable of remembering your credentials and is always requiring that you log in. Useless.
  • Articles not in App

    By DHN44060
    It doesn’t make a lot of sense that I have to leave the app and access my web browser in order to read an article. Of, when that happens, I have to login again.
  • iPad version?

    By molarian
    Installed on iPad, the page is smaller than this review window. Even after hitting the zoom button, it doesn’t fill the screen
  • Dark Mode FTW

    By I’m One Of Them
    Recently subscribed after picking up phy copies locally. This is best way to consume WIRED! However it lacks Dark Mode. Flagship iPhones are packed with OLED screen now so an OLED Mode would be awesome (for the eye).
  • No search ability

    By Miss Guidas
    The UI is great but why is there no search capability? If I see a nod to a Wired article elsewhere, I’d like to be able find it on the app, even if it’s not a featured story.
