    Writing Magazine, Writers Forum etc.

    I have been living in Japan for 4 years now and it has always been very difficult, if not impossible to get magazines or books which I could actually read. Although my Japanese is not too bad reading the Japanese Kanji, Hiranagana and Katagana makes it impossible for me to become a reader of Japanese literature.
    English books can be bought in Tokyo but this means a one and a half journey in cramped trains. I was so happy when I spent 2 weeks over Christmas in good old England where I discovered the magazine Writing Magazine and with it the possibility of reading the magazine via pocketmags.com. Since then I have bought myself two subscriptions and bought a couple of back issues and a variety of other interesting magazines about painting and carving. Reading is very easy. You have the option of layouted pages or you open the text only version.
    You can also access links via your magazines.
    I am happy with Pocketmags, although I can’t download pages. But so far that wasn’t my intention.
    Andrea

    Digital Issue 39 - 2013

    A complete waste of money Pages cannot be printed in a useful way or the content downloaded. You will NOT get a PDF file. The only way to print is to use a print screen command and do two magazine pages on one sheet of paper, which results in a tiny, fuzzy copy with print too small to read. I waited years for a particular pattern, only to find that after shelling out $5.00 for a six-year-old magazine that I still do not have the pattern. What are you thinking, Pocketmags? Up your technology standards. I was considering a year's subscription, but now I know your online digital magazine service is just a rip-off.
