Hey Guys & Gals...
I have been a fan of TBCI magazine for a while and I was just wondering if any fellow TT'ers have an iMag subscription to the magazine. As it is soooo expensive to subscribe to physical copies of the magazine, I thought maybe this may be a better option for me. Are the issues in a downloadable PDF format? Would you recommend the iMag subscription? Any help would be appreciated...
Hi, I have the subscription from X-mas (a present from my husband) and it works fine. It's not a pdf file (unfortunately) but a flash-animated application that runs in your web browser. The only way you can download a site from the magazine is to do a screenshot (or at least I didn't find any other way).
Iva - the paper magazine is wonderful - but our experience with the iMag subscription has not been a positive one. It's not maintained properly and we've found it to be a waste of money - for which they don't give refunds by the way.
Kirste, the editor is a wonderful woman, and pops on here from time to time. I'd hate for her to see us posting negative feedback about the magazine even though I'm assuming the subscription department and technical online stuff has nothing to do with her. She does a fantastic job with the magazine and I applaud her. Sometimes it's better to leave the negative stuff to private communication so it doesn't have a snowball effect or hurt someone's feelings.
I have a subscription to the magazine as well as the iMag. I LOVE the paper magazine and will continue to subscribe to it.... it's so much fun to get in the mail each month and is full of eye candy, the print and paper quality are wonderful and its worth the money!!! In my opinion, anyway!
I agree, the magazine is amazing! And Kirste is a wonderful editor, and the printed magazine is fabulous!!! but the I-mag is a tad annoying in that I thought a subscription would allow you to have access to the online content before it was made public for free, which is not the case. So I would just hate for someone else to spend money when it is already available.
But like Daphne said I am sure the subscription department is totally different from the Editorial aspect, and probably something that Kirste has no control over. These are all concerns I have disscussed with the subscription department already.
