Bicycling for iPad app review



Price: FREE

Bicycling by Rodale, Inc. is the official app of the highly-popular cycling magazine, enabling you to view issues paperlessly on your iPad.

The magazine boasts many different features each month, such as product reviews, buyer’s guides, consumer reports, and miscellaneous articles covering many points of interest.

If you are a seasoned cyclist, or are simply looking to purchase your first set of wheels on a tight budget, this magazine will certainly have something for you.

With this app, you can purchase an annual subscription to Bicycling magazine via an in-app purchase. Annual subscription is priced at $14.99 and currently includes one extra month free and access to exclusive app features. Subscriptions are set to automatically renew 24 hours before the end of the subscription period.

Single issues can also be purchased for around $5.99.

Bicycling was updated to version 1.7 in early-February of 2013. The current version has a total of 75 customer ratings with an average rating of 3.5 out of five stars.

I would like to see a few additions to this app in future updates. Offering free e-subscription to existing subscribers of the paper magazine should go without saying but this is not currently supported. I also think it would be a good idea to implement a monthly or quarterly subscription offer at a slightly lower price than that of individual issues.

For: iPad with iOS 4.3 or later.
