App Reviews

  • Can’t even register

    By logo novicie
    I would agree with other reviewers that this app is really useless. If I could rate it less than 1, I would. I am a subscriber and despite inputting the info requested, it doesn’t even go to a different page. I am better able to access the magazine through Safari. If this app is the only difference between the Print+Digital and the All-Access, you are better off with the former.
  • A Straightforward Delivery of Excellent Content

    By omilk
    Not sure why this app is getting so many 1 star reviews. It works flawlessly as a side scrolling delivery of the HBR back catalogue. I believe you need to be a subscriber in order to receive the benefit of the apps use, but this is true for online access through a browser as well. Excellent content, effective app.
  • Truly mediocre app

    By quorl
    Basically, this app is just a collection of pdfs of the actual magazine. Finding articles is a pain, and you can’t control font sizes so you have to zoom in all the time because the print is so small. The pages never fill up the screen whether in portrait or landscape mode. Heed the reviews. This app is truly mediocre. You’d have a better time just using the HBR website and then reader view, which actually works out nicely in a tablet. The HBR app is just not usable.
  • Back to the website

    By Nealski
    I usually prefer to use a native app for subscriptions, but the HBR app needs some love. There is little that is intuitive about it, and when I logged in with my subscription info the wording of the resulting screen made me feel like I had resubscribed to it. Off to check my in-app purchases and credit card charges. Lastly, the app creates a stripe across the top of the screen to get you back to the issue grid, but it takes up so much room on the screen that it makes more sense to go back to the website from Safari. The developers need to take a very critical look at what they’ve created. It can be better.
  • Poor interaction app

    By Ashraf Oman
    This app is shame on Harvard. Very poor interactivity and looks very messy. It doesn’t help to get good reading experience. It reflects how low you value your readers.
  • Just as bad as all the other reviews say

    By BupBabe
    I just subscribed to the magazine and was directed to use the app to access the issues I missed. Just like the other reviewers say, this is a hugely limited app with absolutely none of the basic functions you’d expect. There are still no links from the table of contents to the articles—really?? So don’t waste your time with this app. Very sad that a magazine that is positioned at the cutting edge of thought is so behind in execution.
  • Not intuitive and seems to be lacking functionality

    By Ncncncfgfuvivgu
    I am a HBR subscriber - paper and digital. It made me login several times and there doesn't appear to be a way to download full copies of the magazine on my iPad - just snippits/ screenshots. They need to start over and so some serious UX testing!
  • Bad quality

    By bandarr2
    The quality of the magazine text is bad, need improvement to make reading experience better.
  • Content good. App is weird and confusing.

    By bpd-newguid
    The HBR content is as great as ever. But MAN OH MAN! the app is confusing. Whoever dreamt up the user interface for browsing your issues and available content should be forced to read all the negative feedback that’s been written about this app. Seriously. That user interface is *BAD*. I know, it looks kinda cool but it’s non-functional and nuts. Don’t try to re-invent the wheel with your user interface. To the app design team, I see that you’re trying to do something cool but it’s just not working.
  • Can’t access magazine, time waster

    By Nic_N
    I agree with all the comments I’ve seen, surprised Harvard puts their name on this. I pay for digital access yet cannot activate my subscription
