Newsweek will deliver to your NookColor ONLY. If you have an iPad sorry, but it says right at the top which devices are supported.

If you have a NookColor and enjoy reading Newsweek than this is a fair purchase. Article view is great for reading and you still get the magazine experience by flipping through the pages. I read Newsweek exclusively online when my print subscription ran out and this is worth the $3 a month to get it in the same format.

My only gripe would be pricing. I wish they would offer yearly subscriptions with slight discounts like they do for the print version as well. I feel slighted knowing that it will cost me more to read Newsweek on my NC than it will to have it delivered every Monday to my door...

I have been a university professor for 11 years and if there is one thing that I teach my students is to have an open mind. The articles in this magazine are so slanted and lack objectivity its ridiculous. Wake up writers! Take your blinders off and see the world through realistic glasses. What a waste of my time and money.

    Highly Recommended - you must check it out!!

    Finally! Subscriptions at a reasonable price. None of this $5 a magazine nonsense! Now if other mainstream magazines will follow, they would get my subscription! Thank you Newsweek! Hope others are paying attention out there!

    Love the articles

    I love being able to get the magazine weekly and not having to worry about the paper and the clutter! I like the articles in Newsweek as well. That being said, if you're looking for a similar experience to print, it won't be the same on the Nook Color. Navigation is pretty simple, and article view is great, but you do have to adjust the screen quite a bit due to the smaller size of the Nook Color. Though the photographs have beautiful color, they are a little pixelated up close. The pictures aren't as important to me as the content, though, and having all the magazines on one device means I can peruse any one of them for information at anytime. The content and the ease of getting to it with article view makes it worthwhile to me!

    more from this reviewer

    Not perfect, but a good alternative -- especially if you need large print.

    Navigation and reading with the ArticleView is great. It's easy to switch back and forth to view (and zoom in on) images while reading an article in ArticleView. The downside is that the images appear to be lower res on the nook than they are in print; when I zoomed in on a political cartoon to read it, it was rather pixelated.

    Still, this could be a great option for someone who hates to kill trees or needs larger print-- as long as the large print audience doesn't mind missing out on the text on a few political cartoons.

    Love the Digital Only Edition of Newsweek

    The Newsweek+Nook combo makes for a very readable eMagazine. More convenient than the print magazine whose subscription I've decided now to continue into the digital versions.

    I especially love how the "ActiveView" feature allows for text-reflow that fits the range of screen sizes of the mobile devices I use. I wish ActiveView didn't scroll sideways though. Makes it more error prone. I wish the embedded images could be "full-screened" as well, but that's a small nit-pick.
