It's Just Ok....
Well, like a couple of the other reviewers, getting my In Touch in the mail was like a surprise everytime. I wouldn't get three of the issues for a week and a half, and then out of nowhere, i would recieve all three in the same day. Also, what has annoyed me is the only people who have graced the cover has been Nick and Jessica or Brad and Jen. I have to question the magazine too because one issue will say they are broken up, then the next will say they are FOR SURE with the other person, and then the next would say they were back together. Its just annoying. The thing i do like most about this magazine is certainly all the stories inside. There are the same pictures you will find everywhere else but there are a lot of short articles that you can read rather than many five page articles. Its a lot more relaxing. So, although i have had some problems with the service, and am a little annoyed with their "broad" range of stories, it could be worse.
Nice quick read glossy
In Touch is a weekly glossy magazines that retails at newstands for $1.99.It is very similar to Star and Us Weekly.They offer fodder on the Hollywood flavor of the moment, so expect lots of stories about Julia Roberts, Britney Spears, Brad Pitt, Jenifer Aniston, J.Lo and the usual suspects.It is very worth the newstand price.They rarely, if ever have human interest stories, most of the stories are all about celebrities, style, make-up, or fashion. They also have contests some times. A lot of times I notice they run the same stories and pictures as Us Weekly so if I had to choose between In Touch and Us Weekly 1 year subscription is less I would choose Us because it still seems like they get more exclusive stories that In Touch.Also, some of the news they run sometimes is weeks old, I often think they end up filling space close to print time. It's an okay magazine an worth the cover price.
In Touch with Celebs
Yeah, In Touch magazine is basically fluff when compared to world events, but I like their kind of fluff.This class of magazine is celebrity driven without being what I would classify a tabloid (i.e. Star or The National Inquirer).In comparison, In Touch magazine most closely relates to US Weekly and People.Of these three magazines, In Touch has the best quality and quantity of photographs.In Touch's article's aren't as good as US Weekly's, but with a much lower cover price it's worth picking up one when in line at the grocery store.On the other hand, if you are looking to subscribe to a weekly magazine, US Weekly is a better bet because their usual subscription price is $.1.00 per issue versus their $3.50 cover price per issue.Meanwhile, In Touch does not give much of a price break for subscribers.Their subscription price is $.1.49 per issue versus their $1.99 cover price per issue.
