THE GOOD STUFF

Mac Format - - CONTACTS -

A sig­nif­i­cant part of my in­ter­est re­volves around app and prod­uct tests, but I am get­ting in­creas­ingly fed up. What I am look­ing for is a care­fully cu­rated se­lec­tion of bril­liant four- and five-star apps and prod­ucts.

I’m not in­ter­ested in the nu­mer­ous one-, two- or pos­si­bly three-star items that reach your pages. For ex­am­ple, the ASWY Ondo speaker and Ummo in is­sue 303. As far as I’m con­cerned – and I’m sure I am not alone in this – I want you guys to weed out the rub­bish and present me with the best!

ALEX SAYS…

I’m sorry to hear you are dis­ap­pointed with our re­views cov­er­age. Ev­ery month we try to se­lect a range of hard­ware and apps that we feel will be of in­ter­est to our read­ers. We re­view them with ab­so­lute hon­esty – if this means giv­ing an item a poor score, we will do this be­cause we feel our read­ers de­serve to know which prod­ucts are worth spend­ing on, and which are not.

Un­for­tu­nately, we don’t have the bud­get to re­view a huge num­ber of prod­ucts and only print the high-scor­ing ones, leav­ing the rest un­pub­lished and the money spent on re­view­ing them es­sen­tially wasted (we have to pay our re­view­ers, af­ter all).

We do in­clude a cu­rated sec­tion of high-scor­ing prod­ucts at the back of the mag­a­zine, though, in the Store Guide sec­tion. This is where you’ll find all of our most rec­om­mended prod­ucts.
