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

    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

    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
  • Worst App Ever

    Took hours to figure out how to download to read offline. This has to be a common question. Once able to download, the amount of clutter of reprint articles, chapters of books is mind boggling annoying. I’m an all access subscriber, delete those or at least give me a tile view so I can delete them and see the magazines so I can download them. Now that the content is downloaded, how do I delete them so they aren’t taking up space. No idea and no view to see what’s there to delete other than just delete the app. Worst app, just carry the magazine or work only online.
  • So Disappointing

    HBR is one of the most reputable and strongest brands in business. As a 5 year subscriber I’ve seen many iterations of this app and this one is by far the worst. The HBR app has been progressively worse, which is disappointing since they’ve got such strong content. The lack of interactivity, and poor UX make this app worse than reading a PDF.
  • Is this really the HBR app?

    How can this be? Jr High School newsletters have better on-line experiences. Is there another HBR app that we’re all missing? This is a disaster...
  • Absolutely fine

    Look, this app is just fine. Pro tip: read the “how to use the HBR app” article amongst all the magazines FIRST, learn the finger swipe shortcuts and navigation is fine. Not intuitive until you do that, then extremely simple. I live in Kenya, can’t easily access reliable mailed hard copies, so the app subscription works well for me. No bells and whistles, no ability to highlight or bookmark - but I can read wherever I want. Full disclosure: I also read The Week & Entertainment Weekly on the ipad, and this is comparable once you know the shortcuts.
  • Wow... Harvard

    I guess Harvard isn’t known for their app development. I am so irritated with this app. Also, I did my subscription, and they charged me 3 times... so $300. Their tech support can’t seem to disassociate another email from mine. What a nightmare. I am ready to cancel it all. Based on the other reviews, it’s clear that they don’t listen to feedback.
  • Should be 0 stars

    This is so bad. Amateur app designed by academics, I think. Kind of like much of the advice in the content.
  • Subscription not active

    Just bought subscription for print and digital. I can access website but not the app version. After entering subscription account number, email and zip code in setting under app right bottom corner, it responds that not active subscription. I called help desk , waited for 10 min, and they said you only get online version on website but not the app version. Then she corrected herself that manager says I should be also access app version. Now she put a request to IT and someone will contact me up to 5 BUSINESS DAYS by email . This is all after spending$189 for 2 year subscription. I think HBR should do a case study on HBR customer experience..do to yourself before teaching others...
