No access

My subscription says I have Digital access to Popular Science and I do not. I entered my account number & email as instructed in the app and nothing.
I also emailed Popular Science about the problem and no response after a week. Get with the program PopSci!


This is sold as an iPhone app. Meanwhile, when you open an issue it's just a zoomed out view of the print magazine that's impossible to read without zooming and panning. Can't believe this.
