    I picked up an issue at the local bookstore last week. One of the better motorcycle magazines.

    Hey MXBundy, C. Tapper, and Idaho Renegade,

    first off, I'd like to thank you for your support of our magazine! I'm the managing editor and am responsible for reigning in the adventure content from all over the world, so I'm always looking for great stories with a fresh angle. I also really appreciate those who take us along for the ride. I'm also one of the contributing writers and have been around AdvRider for the past 3 years as "Nicomama" with my solo ride reports.

    If you have any questions regarding the magazine you can always contact me directly at nicole@adventuremotorcycle.com. We also have a Facebook page where you can keep up with us daily.

    Say Idaho Renegade, can you tell me the bookstore where you picked up our magazine?

    We have big plans for the magazine, so stay tuned. We look forward to any feedback and value such.

    Talk soon,
    Nicole Espinosa

    MXBundy, ADVMoto is still around and running like a freight train. You are on our email list and the account is still active so try logging in again. If you have any problems send me a PM and I'll look into it.

    Sho' iz. ADVMoto App is available in Apple and Android marketplaces... search for "Adventure Motorcycle"

    Any Apple product that has access to their marketplace will be able to read the mag through the app. The self-hosted digital version comes in pdf format and a PC/Apple friendly page-flip format. Check out the free sample issue to see if it works for you.

    Thank you guys for the interest and thoughtful feedback. Comments, questions and letters are welcome at anytime.

    See you on the road!

    I purchased a yea's subscription on the iPad app and what a pain in the _____. It crashes on certain pages if you switch from landscape to portrait, if you go out of the app it takes you back to square one. I contacted Support but they couldn't fix it. They asked what my login was but I don't have one because the app won't let me do it - keeps showing error.
    AND... the latest issue doesn't show up on the app!! This is the real kicker. I keep checking, have deleted and reloaded the app - no new issue. the mag is good but the app...? Well, imho - don't waste your money.

    Hey OFA,

    Apps have quirky behavior sometimes but unfortunately we at the magazine don't have control over the apps since they're provided by a third party. I would suggest trying to get a refund from magcloner. If that doesn't work, send me a PM and I'll hook you up with a free digital subscription for your troubles. Our website versions offer both a page-flip and a PDF. Both are better than the apps because they have interactive menus, active links and also update new releases sooner than the apps.

    At the end of the day, nothing beats a PDF for reliability and portability.

    Cheers,

    Hey CrazyCarl - thanks for that smokin' fast response. I just want to read it on my iPad. Got pretty frustrated with the support from the app, they guy did say he had other mags but I didn't get that it wasn't from your company. Thanks for the offer for the comp -I'll see how the refund goes. I'll head back to the website and check out the PDF option.
    Thanks again.

    My first dabble into e-zines and its not going so well...

    Say C. Tapper, you're the other one on this thread that is using the iPad app. How is it working for you? do you have the latest issue on it? Appreciate the feedback.

    Sopascat, hey sweet Mama, yeah our wonderful local moto chickee and very own ADVer Bubbletron was featured as our "Reader in Focus" in the current issue. Don't you just love her?!

    From their website and open it on the iPad using Kindle for iPad. Works great and you don't need a connection every time you want to look at an issue. Excellent magazine.

    Hey Gang,

    We just got an email from PocketMag folks saying they're working on updating the Android and Apple page flip software.

    If you have problems/issues with their app on your phone or tablet, send them an email at: help@pocketmags.com

    I just picked up the latest issue of AdvMoto, and loved it. I ran across it in Barnes and Nobles in Merced, CA. :clap I used to subscribe to Dual Sport News, but somehow missed the transition to the new format. I'll be sending my check in for a print subscription, since I like to flip pages the ol' fashioned way.


    The articles are written from a perspective I enjoy: adventure touring with the focus on riding. I've tried other mags, but most focus too much on the destination (leaving me wondering how the bike worked out), or too much on motorcycle specs (I can get those from the brochure). AdvMoto is the sweet spot. Thanks!

    Still takes quite a while to show up in the app but it's worth the wait. Dam fine magazine!
