Unfortunately the blurbs and small print cannot cannot be changed text size wise so it is too small to read for my old eyes, especially while in a moving vehicle. Also the magazine will not switch from portrait to landscape so you wind up having to swipe to see the other part of some large photos

Cannot be read on MAC Laptops or iPhone 3GS! What is the problem? I'm just trying to reduce the number of electronic devices I carry as much as possible, while still reducing the amount of paper I put in the landfills. If PM continues to discriminate against laptops then I guess I will just have to cancel my subscription. Its not worth carrying an extra device just to read it!

This always was a good read, but the nook version is not in color.

Since I have very poor vision (my reason for getting a Nook, This magazine is totally useless for me since I could find no way to enlarge the articles so I could see them.

Received my first issue and it did not function on my Nook HD. They should have known this from the start.

Very difficult to read on tablet. Very poorly formatted and layed out for mobil devices. I tried on a Nook and a Nexus 7. Can't recommend. Should probably only rated 2 stars, but I liked the interesting content.

Popular Mechanics is a great magazine! It, however, relies heavily on the great photographic work that accompanies each article; some of which are very short. Not having the photographic content makes reading Popular Mechanics a chore and a bore. I cancelled my trial subscription two days after activating it. It did however renew my interest in getting a print subscription. This subscription might be more interesting on a nook color, but I don't know if that would show pictures either. I have a regular nook.

I just want to but this as a real magazine, not downloaded and i just want one issue, not a subscription. Why is their no option to buy a single issue printed on paper not electronically.

User interface is poor and hard to manage even on a large tablet. PDF file would have been better than this. Does anyone end-user test their software anymore?
