    Doesn't work.

    As it's free you don't need to register any card details, just an email.

    Get through to checkout & it says Failed Transaction Details so it looks like no free copy unless you're willing to give them all your contact & payment details.

    Look in your ordered history and you will see that it is there. The only information you have to supply is an email address and pasword.

    As a way of selling you a mag this does not work for me as the software they used make it unreadable.

    Epic Fail in my view

    I clicked on this, thinking my son would be interested. I don't think I will bother though, after reading the feedback from other posters.

    Please note that these are digital editions. After purchase your issue(s) will appear in the My Magazines section of Pocketmags

    So it is viewable, but at the risk of being picky, only using an online viewer. I can't find a way to download it for viewing later when offline.

    If you download the reader (you have a choice of 2) it will automatically download the magazine

    Worked for me!
    Hi,

    Pocketmags is the site they have used to distribute this digital magazine and they don't need payment or personal details for you to get the free magazine: you only need to click 'buy' on this page (you'll notice the price is £0...!):

    And then if you go to your 'basket' and 'checkout' you'll be prompted to register (or log in, if you're already registered).

    Registration *does not* require you to enter any payment info - only your name, email and a password. Job done. Then just click 'my magazines' to get to the free sample issue of BRM. Click on the cover and you can read it in your browser.

    For those who don't want to read the magazine in the browser, there's an offline reader available from the Pocketmags homepage.

    Yes - as with all digital media these days, this isn't as straightforward as enter your email address and get sent the magazine, but it still seems pretty good!

    Hope this helps,

    Steve

    C'mon its not rocket science!!
    Easy as pie, registered and was reading the mag in under 5 minutes.

    Pretty sure there's a Dummies guide out there for the challenged members finding difficulty in following the instructions......

    The only complication I found is that the Android app does not accept the kind of complex passwords that you can register with. I had to change my password in order to be able to log in with the app.
