But it goes much farther from there. Throughout each issue you’ll find buttons and links, all of which launch more related content and the opportunity to interact with it. Inside the app issues, you can: Dive deeper into a story by opening related posts on or watching video or digging into our wealth or company lists or viewing photo galleries, and more. Join the real-time conversation around a story by following the link to its comments section on Connect with a writer by simply pressing a button to access their Twitter, Facebook, or contributor page. Share any content from anywhere inside the app with your social networks: a magazine story, chart, or infographic; content from; ads and content from advertisers’ Web sites, etc. Using a simple two-finger tap, actual images of the content itself are “clipped” and can be sent directly to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Pinterest, or via email or saved to your photo roll.

  • You listened

    By jkepley
    The fact that I have the option of looking at the magazine in a magazine fashion makes all the difference. Thanks for listening.
  • App doesn’t work

    By tony@ca
    The app doesn’t recognize my subscription from iTunes, and it only has magazines issues older than June 2017. So frustrated....
  • My Experience so Far

    By J_Kingston
    I cant Access my Account. Hell i havent even set one up. & I have to pay 5.99 AFTER i py for the Year Subscription. SMH Nooo.
  • Forbes is smart… But

    By Art in Austin
    I’ve been reading Forbes magazine almost 50 years, so they don’t have to sell me on their worthiness. Yet as we often see in business the provider has not tried to buy their own product from themselves. I have a regular magazine subscription and am having a very difficult time figuring out how to get it digitally-which I think I would now prefer. So many less popular magazines have this available. One stand out is The Economist which gives you a beautiful digital, and a spectacular audio version to listen to while working out or driving. Hey Forbes– just copy The Economist digital/audio format. It has taken a lot of effort for me to get to this point, which is nowhere.
  • Amazingly poor login user interface

    By JeffMorrison
    Great content, horrible user interface for getting the subscription working on the iPhone.
  • Have a Valid Subscription - Keeps Asking to subscribe

    By paul5309
    Worked fine for a few months, renewed subscription back in November and have not been able to access magazines since. Keeps asking to renew. Have sent multiple emails to support team and no feedback at all on the issue. No customer care number for Maz provided. Terrible customer service experience.
  • So, um... that’s cool?

    By DrMeloche
    a few videos of top stories is all you get without a subscription
  • Perspective

    By CajunAl
    An enjoyable and educational perspective.
  • The Absolute Best Business Magzine

    By Mr. Telluride
    You must read it or remain in the dark at you peril.
  • Good Continuation

    By 55precision
    I rather wake up every morning and read what Forbes, has to offer than any main stream social media app!
  • Subscription Limitation?

    By Sep7ime
    So I was given the option to pay $5.99 or $29.99/yr subscription to access content. No information on what the subscription provides aside from it won’t work for the browser version. $29.99 made sense but it’s not what I expected. Still not sure what I really get but it appears it’s only for the latest magazine available. Not cool! $30 is still not bad but I would’ve appreciated more information, now I regret subscribing.
  • Deceptive pricing subscriptions

    By Space XL
    I sign up for a subscription ($2.99 monthly) The app prompted me to pay 5.99 for the following month with no ability to do annual payments. Then tried to restore my subscription payment with no success, then was forced to contacted the app store customer service regarding a refund. Refund was issued. The next time attempted to login to my already purchased magazine the app automatically offered me an annual subscription of $29.99.
  • Consistency

    By ForbesAppIsAWasteofMoney
    The only thing consistent about this app is the monthly charge. Where is the September issue??? It’s been two weeks into the month. What am I paying for?
  • Russell Ausseresses

    By Russman75056
    If you're a businessman on your way up, Forbes is not just a necessity, it is almost a requirement and prerequisite for your success. The app is very easy to use. Just as the brand itself, it never disappoints. It is always a go to place where you can find the stories of the movers and shakers of modern America.
  • Why do I need a subscription when Instill have to pay $5 dollars to read a magazine?!

    By Anitachristinajalloh
    There is no point in getting this subscription! I repeat, DO NOT GET THE SUBSCRIPTION!! I bought a year subscription and I still need to pay 5 dollars per magazine for each magazine I want to read? What is the point? This should be changed.
  • Can’t use

    By Annahdi
    Bought a subscription but I still can’t read anything, you can’t contact customer service without an email and I don’t see where to put it in
  • Not informative

    By Danbo99
    Full of clickbait.
  • Pretty sweet

    By Jonboy2011
    I like the browsing feature!
  • Love Forbes and app makes it easier

    By A great nickname
    I'm a regular reader and let's just say that my discovery of this app will make my morning commute that much less unenjoyable. Officially adding it to my arsenal with BBC and Flipboard. Super smooth app and love the articles. Thanks for this Forbes!
  • App is not intuitive.

    By JCupset200
    I have had problems for some time with the Forbes app. Tonight it said I had to pay/buy an issue despite a subscription I have. The FAQs suggest restoring purchases and if that does not work to delete and re download the app. Restoring did not work so I deleted and re downloaded. I could not successfully sign in because I must have forgotten my password. The FAQs say to click on "forgot password". There is no such link on the sign on page. Forbes needs a new and better interface. Not a good reflection at all for great magazine content.
  • Waste of money

    By Ttstewart1
    Nothing works the way it should. Links don't open, issues don't load. Why can't they just fix the issues?? Does no one read these reviews at Forbes?!?!
  • 0 Stars

    By The Way Music Should Be
    This is the worst app I have seen. Forbes attempts to pride itself on its social engagement but this iPad app is pathetic and doesn't work. It forced me to cancel my subscription.
  • Why pay when it's free online?

    By C51Creations
    Why pay when it's free online?
  • Legit

    By Csc228921
    Perfect way to get their web content.
  • Forbes Has Become Garbage

    By Yano10
    People don't need a timed quote ad every time they want straight up information. Let spam take over the hottest topic to generate ad revenue is down disgusting! You expect people to pay for this trash in your app now your image as a company is ruined? Ridiculous!
  • I would give zero stars if I could

    By ShahinKohan
    I am not able to restore the purchases.
  • Horrible

    By Teddytessa
    Hasn't updated to the current magazine. I contacted them and they said not their problem. Call Forbes. We just sold you the app. Asked Forbes why they aren't updating. Ok. Called Forbes. Said app people problem. Call iTunes. What????? I'm done.
  • It's worst than a rss feed

    By Gui Barthel
    The new version of the app is horrible. It's poorly designed, the articles lost the look and feel and you can't browse through the magazine anymore. I've just canceled my subscription.
  • Very hard to read

    By steveoliverc
    Can't change font size. No organization. Seems to be missing articles from the magazine.
  • This version is horrible!

    By BigRileyWins
    If I just wanted to read a few select articles, I could go on the website. This update is an insult to all the people who have been loyal subscribers.
  • Truly horrible app, canceled my subscription.

    By Dustin1179
    The format is so bad now I almost can't believe someone designed this. It's totally unreadable. The whole magazine is in some kind of weird plain text format. Terrible reading experience. I actually just canceled my subscription.
  • Really nice

    By Clark NY
    Good app
  • Latest Version Killed The Experience

    By GoGo Soda
    I am a longtime subscriber via the IPad and the latest version is beyond frustrating. The app now takes forever to download an issue on a high speed internet connection. What used to take 1 minute or less now takes almost 5. Terrible when trying to download before catching a plane. And then when you click the restore purchases button the app crashes...and then when you try to relaunch it, it just keeps crashing and never opens again. The only way you can launch it is to delete the app completely and re download and relaunch it. But if you then click restore again you are put back into the crash spin cycle..smh very frustrating. The previous versions worked just fine. I feel this is a case of messing up a good thing just for the sake of making a change...smh
  • Just awesome

    By Mikehaller
    I love the new intuitive look and feel of the app, and I can still access the print version of the magazine. A good mix of website and the print version. Keep it up Forbes!
  • Disappointing

    By Glorioustrait
    PDF function doesn't work, very slow. Can't access previous issues with annual subscription.
  • Waste of time.

    By Jakepotts92
    Don't even bother downloading this app. It gives you a huge timer with only 2 minutes to see the magazine. And they block a big portion of the pages with the countdown. They only want you to buy it for 6 bucks or get a years subscription for 30.
  • Headache to my head

    By _Branden_
    Save urself....
  • Should have read the reviews

    By WaynePL
    Not user friendly, can't search back issues. Uninstalled
  • Junk

    By domestic_engineer
    Really??? A count down timer on the main screen for 2 minutes before you have to pay? No thanks. I'll stick to your not quite as junky website.
  • No access ridiculous

    By Unhappy subscriber
    Thought I would get access with subscription to magazine. Since I don't I will not subscribe to magazine again. Wonder how this is working out for them?
  • Bad app, Bad website

    By Funky Bunny
    App is just a means to sell you a magazine. Website does not work on Apple products--can't get past the silly welcome quote, and the app blocks you unless you have paid. Skip this.
  • Horrible app

    By Sweet Glory
    App is not good.
  • Laughable!

    By Upstate Steve
    The title says it all.
  • Singh

    By Uncle singh
    It not free they let you see for two minutes and then you have to pay .
  • Not user-friendly

    By Nazzy06
    It's not easy/fun to read by magazine edition without a search tool, plus a big timer pops up and only allows you to read for a 2 minute preview. What's the point of the app?
  • terrible customer service experience

    By akn2577
    I tried to obtain the digital subscription. I am a print subscriber. The digital subscription should be included for free. I have now tried to pay twice for the digital subscription and it still has not gone through. They do not even have a phone number you can call. This is one of the worst experiences of hat with an iPad a follow-up, the app is very bad and freezes constantly.
  • App freezes too much

    By I like….
    But I love the magazine, I might just go overstay my welcome at the magazine stand.
  • No free access without subscription

    By Steven Ledingham
    Very disappointing. 25% of my screen was blocked by a "free preview" count down timer. I couldn't even preview content. Removed immediately.
  • Unusable

    By Dreamer222
    Font is so big it's unreadable. 250 pages , 200 pages with ads.
