  • Rock On!

    By Scott Norviel
    Great guitar app!! I'm a faithful subscriber!!
  • It's sad

    By ImOttius
    I get why they wanted to change the format: it's faster and easier to create new issues, its easier (if not automatically) to adapt for iPhone/iPod and there's no need to spend time and money to make an additional (complex) layout. But this new format doesn't seem to be implemented right. You have to zoom in constantly, but while zoomed in landscape mode, the vertical scrolling often doesn't work, trying to scroll horizontally instead. This issue comes and goes as it pleases. The image galleries open smaller pictures than the initial previews. The text and graphics render very slowly. That's technical issues I'm sure they will eventually overcome. But the extra content and, most importantly, the interactivity I instantly fell in love with GD for? It's not really there. Less extra content, zero interactivity, and still no bookmarks. It's just normal Guitarist. The Deluxe was an amazing experience and I'm sad to see it go. Gave two stars for the attempt.
  • What happened

    By Songw51
    So I signed up for a subscription. Signed up for a year back in July. I got 2 or 3 issues and then it all stopped. So what's up I paid and I love the magazine. But now what I haven't received the last 3 issues. And I see from other reviews other people having similar problems Thanks Hugh McCloy
  • Messy Upgrade

    By CitySpinsAround
    Updated to the latest version from the original app and all my old issues were gone and couldn't be restored in the new app. I have been a subscriber for over a year so this was more than irritating. Fortunately, there is an app called GD Archive that seems to let me download all my previously purchased issues. The issue is it is a standalone app, which is not in Newstand. I gave the original GD app 5 stars, but this new app is getting 1 star for now.
  • Lost all old issues

    By Jthompson421
    Ditto... All my old issues are gone. Deleted all, rebooted, and restored. No luck. If you have back issues, do NOT UPGRADE.
  • Needs some work

    By NK 82
    After re downloading and resenting my iPad, the audio does now work, so the issue may not have been with the app. I still want to see music links to the reviewed albums as in the previous magazine format; perhaps at least a link to iTunes to listen to the music? And as others have noted, I do not like the fact that I have to download a separate app to gain access to my previous issues. As a note to the editors, I do not think this magazine was any faster downloading than the prior format as this was a reason cited for the update. Other than that, the actual content and writing is superb and second to none.
  • Lost all previous purchases

    By Jon Manchester
    All of my previous purchases are gone. I refuse to purchase anymore issues or recommend this to anyone until I have acces to content that I have already purchased.
  • Lost issues

    By Davesim1
    After being forced to change deluxe app to Legacy app, all my previous issues have disappeared and are not restore-able, even though they are taking 6GB of memory. Update: Installed GD Archive app to re-download old issues, but had to delete GD Legacy app and reinstall to free-up corrupted memory. New issue sound links work on ones I tried.
  • Lost all my purchased issues

    By Dean5150
    Just upgraded and lost all of my previous issues. Very disappointed. What's the deal guitarist?
  • Mag good, app lousy

    By Soporifix
    Invariably my ipad 3 crashes at least three times every time I download an issue. They are 600MB per issue, take ten minutes or more to download, and cannot work in the background. If you do anything at all, including reading a different issue of the mag, the download will stop. You have to sit there watching it download from start to finish, because if your ipad sleeps during the download the app will crash and you'll have to delete and redownload it and start all over again. It's crazy. Wonder who thought that up?
