    You can be damned sure I won't be paying 1.99 or 2.99 to read tech news on an iphone. Anymore than I'd pay for a printed magazine. I can get all my tech news from a whole bunch of free websites.

    Getting CPC out here takes an entire mag cycle, so I'm always a month behind :(

    I subscribe your magazine which I read on my PC. But I will not extend subscription as I can not read it on my android. Why you did go with ios, I did always thing that custum PC readers are to smart to have iPhone.

    You'll be pleased to hear we got an Android app in the works too, it's just that the ios app was finished first.

    erm

    You say "your first issue will cost you just £1.99"
    Description on itunes says "Download the Custom PC app, and you will get your first 148 page issue absolutely FREE."
    Price on itunes is £1.19

    I'm confused!

    so what happens when new issue is released? does this use the new Apple subscription model?

    i'm also confused on how this works. looks like it's just a one off purchase.

    Yes, get over it.

    In the real world, businesses need revenue to make websites and magazines. Without money, there would be no Custom PC or bit-tech, and there would be nowhere for you to continually make non-contributary forum posts on.

    I'll give you 24 hours to cool down so you can have time to think about what you post, before you post.

    All you do is come here and post demeaning comments to everyone and anyone. No one appreciates it, why don't you just go away?

    This looks a lot better than the Zinio option. I am already a paper subscriber though so I would need a healthy discount to go with a digital option as well. Perhaps when my subscription is finished I might go for this for my iPad.

    Edit


    Missing your banhammer already?

    Double edit

    I just noticed that Lizard swung the banhammer on this occasion (albeit a 24hr ban)

    Lol, pwned...

    On topic: This looks pretty cool, it might be enough for me to get a sub tbh. I don't care much for mags any more. Also, great that there's an android version in the works, as that is my current platform.

    What's the objection? Them not giving it away or a business wanting to invest in new revenue streams?
