Computeractive (sometimes written as Computeract!ve, to reflect the logo) is a fortnightly computer magazine published by Dennis Publishing in the United Kingdom. It was first published in February 1998 by VNU Business Publications, which was bought by Incisive Media in 2007. In February 2013 it was sold to Dennis Publishing.[1] Its sister magazine is The Ultimate Guide series.

Based on fortnightly sales, confirmed by the UK's Audit Bureau of Circulation, Computeractive is the UK's best-selling computer magazine. The iPad app version of the magazine was launched in January 2012. An ebook version of Computeractive is provided by Zmags, although purchasers cannot read the magazine offline.

Contents

The magazine is split into three main sections:

  • How To – includes a pull-out 'Workshops' section, a question-and-answer section in which staff provide answers to readers' computer problems and productivity features on a broad range of home computing topics.
  • Tried & Tested – reviews of consumer hardware and software by the magazine's staff and various freelance journalists.
  • Interactive – news, consumer-rights advice, recommended freeware and shareware downloads and reader-generated material such as computer tips and letters.
