  • Formatting and Navigation need to improve

    By adsadsadsinfinityads
    Opening monthly magazine issues on iPhone contains some formatting issues between text & visuals. I highly doubt Wired does this on purpose or else people with OCD will get annoyed due to the misplacement of text. Swiping through the magazine is also difficult as I have to repeatedly swipe left/right to change pages. Good content but the app needs work.
  • Readability

    By poverello62
    The application does not display in landscape mode and as I tried to type this feedback, it does not allow for keyboard typing from the new magic keyboard. It would be great if we can read this magazine in landscape mode on iPad Pro.
  • A well designed magazine

    By tyjon31
    This is one of the few magazines that are more enjoyable on an iPad. Care has been taken month to month to develop a quality product for the reader. Keep up the good work
  • VERY fine print hard to read.

    The articles go on and on re: Force of nature article in April 2020 hard copy mag. Soon “I “ lose interest and am confused about what the item was about.
  • Great reading in every issue

    By skhpa
    Amazed at the depth and breadth of the topics and research in every article. Love this publication !
  • Overall good. Lacking on iPad

    By Zebadee2
    The iPad version of the app doesn’t support landscape mode. also doesn’t appear to support dynamic text resizing. This makes it kind of hard to read and also makes it easier to lose your place while reading
  • Best STEM available

    By JimFeet
    In addition to the best STEM articles Wired provides what I find to to be some of the most well reasoned political insights that are either overlooked or ignored by other sources.
  • Cannot Rotate

    By S_Kinsey
    I use an iPad and an iPhone. I hate apps that will not rotate to accommodate landscape orientation in an iPad. Boo!
  • Not all articles work

    By OstinatoFreak
    Feature request: please give your fellow subscribers a way to listen to articles in audio form without having to subscribe to a third party service. Maybe even charge a little ($1 or $2 per month above normal magazine subscription cost) which would more than pay for the cost of hiring professional speakers. (Or do it in-house and make it free for subscribers! I don’t care if the speaker is a professional or not.) Reason for 3 stars: Got the app to read cover article “The Hardest Reset.” Downloaded the issue successfully, but that article malfunctioned. Other articles I could read fine, but all I got was a cover page for the article I wanted to read, and no matter where I tapped or which direction I swiped, the cover was all there was.
  • Viewing controls and mode still lacking

    By Buzz, Farmer
    Since moving to the iPad several years ago as my primary reading device, there are certain standards that I have come to expect with my digital publications. The number one requirement is that the content supports both portrait and landscape modes, not just portrait mode, as WIRED still only does. I and most people I encounter who use an iPad use some form of case and/or keyboard cover that puts the device into landscape mode for TIME magazine used to offer both modes, but then they went portrait-only and I found it totally frustrating and dropped the subscription. There are several other digital publications that don’t suffer from this problem (I’ve used the ZINIO reader for a few things), so this is not a difficult problem to solve. Other reviewers have commented on the lack of zoom and other viewing controls and I agree with their concerns. Finally, the new “Swipe down” control isn’t as easy as the prior control. If you’re not careful, you’ll swipe down from the top and reveal an iPad control, not the WIRED app control to get back to the menu and settings. This is not as intuitive and it doesn’t work as well. I’d just assume see the older control where you tapped on the content to reveal the menu bar at the top. Please listen to your customers while you have them and make these changes. These are much more fundamental things and make more of a difference than animated cover pages and other bells and whistles. Update Jan 25, 2020 - I’m still not digging these unintuitive controls and the lack of landscape mode.
