Personally I am giving any digital magazine a miss, unless it is a print subscriber perk included in the cost for a print version.
Consider it a personal foible, as if I pay for a publication – Magazine or Book – I want the physical thing.
Then I am the sort to write notes in it, clip articles, cover a publication with post-its and then i share my copy.
A minor issue with WRO (World Radio Online) is that I had a paid for subscription that was converted to a duplicate print-issue of CQ magazine rather than refunded when WRO left the newpaper paper print format, and bluntly I was shortchanged in that process – what did I possible need a second copy of CQ and repeated efforts to merge the two subscriptions went nowhere, and WRO’s shortcomings become a sharper issue in a paid for format that will ten cost me an additional amount fo time to print a real copy of anything I want to work with in physical print.
Your milage may vary, of course.
