Future Publishing launches new Pi User magazine for Raspberry Pi enthusiasts

Future Publishing (publishers of Linux Format magazine) have launched a new title aimed at Raspberry Pi owners. Called Pi User, it is a somewhat slimmer volume than the venerable MagPi and is more expensive, at £7.99. However, Future are well known for producing quality publications so it might just be worth it to get an alternate look at the Pi world. You can view a sample issue here and buy it online here. It will likely be available in newsagents as well, so keep an eye out!

        Personally I think it had much MORE useful info for me than a typical issue of MAGPI, but since its the 1st issue they may have set a standard that they wo9nt be able to maintain. I guess we’ll see next issue.

        Well worth the cover price.
        a LOT of different advertisers that usually in most RASPI ads, found some nice NEW (to me anyway) sources for parts and ideas.

    Any sign of issue#2?. Issue 1 was November 2016!

      My *guess* is that it wasn’t popular enough so not worth the time to produce and publish.

        Just found issue 2 in a branch of WHSmith outside my home town – dated Spring 2017. Hadn’t realised it is a quarterly publication, so it was pretty much ontime, although the lack in my local WHSmith suggests it is not being heavily marketed (or it is very popular and sells out quickly).
        Issue 2 is up to same quality as the first.
