Customer Reviews

  • Awesome

    by Jerwomack

    It's a great way to get my fix when I'm away from home.

  • Had issues

    by Dkenenxkend

    For the longest time I couldn't download any new issues, there was always an error message. Logged off and logged back in and it has worked since. Other than that, it's a great app

  • Overall Good

    by TheBitKit

    People say it's bad, but I see nothing wrong. Just wis I could bookmark a page...

  • SI app review

    by flaunteingdff

    Awesome! You made it even better than before. Keep up the good work.

  • Good app

    by Anthony Falcone

    Add Newsstand and iPhone 5 support!

  • My Thoughts

    by KohnyQ

    It's an alright app. I have nothing to complain about.

  • Update app to iOS7

    by LANYJ27

    I have a 5s and it is still in iOS6 format. Great app just please upgrade it to iOS7

  • Great mag the App suffers

    by Jointman2

    When the app works it is very nice. I have had multiple times that the app won't open and when it does open it reverts back at leasts 2 or 3 issues and the 2 or 3 most recent issues have disappeared and need to be reloaded. I do enjoy the app very much when it works.

  • SI

    by Modie Chavez

    Had a hard time logging in until I called SI costumer service and the Nice Lady straitened everything out!! Been a subscriber since the beginning,great Mag, great App..

  • Eeeehh!

    by SS9

    This app is to bad, it could be better! You don't get what you think you'll be getting, takes a while to load magazines that have already been downloaded, and if you left of somewhere and open other apps up; come back to this app you lose where you were!

  • iPhone 5

    by Keatonwashburn

    Please come out with a full screen version for iPhone 5!

  • Subscriber

    by Craigyoung5

    Amazing operation and top notch sports reporting. Not just a website. An awesome app that goes along with your subscription.

  • Buy an issue

    by Joey Millunzi

    App crashes when you get out of your issue, but navigates fine when your in the issue. Can't buy any past issues from app which would be nice.

  • Awesome App

    by BigHamboni

    Just downloaded the app today with my SI subscription and I can't stay off of it! Great Job guys!

  • Current app review

    by 8.2013

    Downloaded the old one and never used it cause it was not very good. This one is much better. Have uses it a couple months and it has worked great. Wish the registration from my paper copy was easier and less of a pain to find my number on my billings/mailing label but otherwise this version so far is without significant issues.

  • Great app!

    by Exxonman15

    I always did like SI for their great articles. So what could be better then having them available wherever you are. Must have for sports lovers.

  • Ok

    by ATILLA005

    At first the app was ok then having authenticating problems. But deleted and reinstalled the app and works fine.

  • Great

    by Mattwaldrop

    Love the si app. Better than sitting down reading thru a big magazine and a whole lot more convenient!

  • Good

    by Trbuck

    It was very hard to get this App to work. Had to contact SI numerous times to get it fixed. But the content is decent for a pretty good magazine.

  • So far so good

    by Bears_suck

    Would be nice if magazines would download with app closed

  • Can't buy magazines

    by Jb8271993

    They never load the purchase button, highly annoying

  • IPHONE 5?!?!

    by Capsrule8

    Ordered a subscription, this app can't even fit a screen the the iPhone 5, let alone updating it for ios 7

  • Terrible

    by Andy24524

    Not even optimized for the iPhone 5 screen

  • Can't even log in

    by BetterLatethanNever2933

    The app says I have a digital subscription. When I click on forgot password, no matter what email address I use, it tells me to try again later. This app must have been developed by the Obama administration.

  • Constantly crashes on IPhone 5

    by OnlyAFoolWouldSayThat

    I'm a paid subscriber and this app takes forever to download an issue and then just as it appears to be finished it just freezes. Very frustrating. You'd think a major magazine would have the best app out there for downloading issues. The Economist, a much larger magazine downloads in less than a minute with no problems. How about using whoever they use for their software SI? What an embarrassment.

  • Does works by crashes much too frequently, on iPad too.

    by Jkuehl

    Does works by crashes much too frequently, on iPad and iPhone. Y would think after so many updates they have fixed this randomly occurring issue error from being display and have it work uninterrupted.

  • SI Magazine of iPhone

    by Len in DC

    There are loading problems. If you don't have wifi available don't try to download an issue. It will start to load an issue then crash. Then you'll never get that particular issue to load unless you delete the entire app and download again. But when it works it works great.

  • What the beefcake?

    by Unicorn hero

    It keeps crashing it works about every other time but only for like 5 min!

  • Slow, crashes, smut

    by Jenners77

    Horrible app. Seems SI lives off their swimsuit edition. Lose the smut and fix your app.

  • Can't read magazine

    by SuperDangerDave

    It seems like the issues download but then it's just "stuck". If I can't read next week's issue for the 4th week in a row, I give up!

  • Lack luster

    by bdreiling

    Seems silly that this app hasn't been updated in over a year. We need better iOS 7 support and a taller app for newer iPhones.

  • Expected better

    by LouHudson

    It crashes all the time. I would've expected better from a reputable publication.

  • retired

    by tbart4

    Absolutely the clumsiest app on my phone. Downloading issues never proceeds without some sort of cliche. SI is not ready for the 21st century.

  • Useless.

    by Bubblebody

    Does not work. Downloaded issue, but error messages/crashes when trying to open content.

  • Awful

    by Zapace

    I can barely navigate to anything readable, and the only reason I keep trying is that since MMQB started I cannot read ANY of it on my work computer. Otherwise I would delete this app.

  • Can't load latest magazine

    by Rjrod1963

    I get an "unable to get entitlement response from auth server". What's up?

  • Disapointed

    by J-Heck

    Bought the Pirates Jason Gilli paper issue and I wanted to make it a digital copy so I wouldn't blend the pages and it wouldn't scan the barcode or magazine. So I deleted it.

  • Weak app

    by cpuJesse

    Crashes as soon as I open it. Won't allow me to download the magazines.

  • Freakin Awesome

    by DWHugg

    No more "Mommy Time" or architect mags as I wait!! SI in my pocket always!

  • A mess. Needs to be fixed.

    by Kellen55

    App crashes way too much. I'm always having to delete and reinstall the app, which still only is a temporary fix. Great magazine, bad app.

  • The app is just ok...

    by Regrant2000

    Sometime it is difficult to login. I also have to re-download issues I already downloaded.

  • Keeps crashing

    by Apptasticcritic

    The app keeps coming up with this pop up screen telling me things about the URL not working. I don't understand what us happening. PLEASE FIX IT NOW! Other than that the old version was better.

  • Great for convenience

    by Stew the Doodle Fan

    Love having the option of reading SI on the go. Waiting in line, waiting at doctors office, some unexpected down time...access the latest issue on your iPhone or iPad. Highly recommend it to SI subscribers!

  • Terrible App

    by nyrupj

    You should be ashamed.

  • App stinks

    by Keith Davis

    App stinks

  • Love SI, not app

    by jesusismy_homey

    Can rarely even download the latest issues. Always get an error message. I'm paying for a subscription and shouldn't have to deal with this crap!

  • Doesn't Work

    by Thrillho77

    Hasn't worked for months. Won't let me log in.

  • Great app

    by Mthoops

    SI is great has everything the magazine has and more. Plus when on the go and don't have the magazine with you BOOM!!!!!! It's right there

  • Read the reviews, they are spot on

    by Whiznwilly

    The app crashes everywhere I try to use it, photos, videos, you name it. Not sure what's going on, but Mickey Mouse wouldn't put his name on this junk.

  • Good

    Good reading
