Subscription just ran out and not renewing
Due to not accommodating paid paper subscriptions and the long history of lack and poor customer service provided by Popular Mechanics I have decided to let my subscription run out and not renew it this time. I had a 5yr prepaid print subscription yet the Popular Mechanics wouldn't allow me to change my subscription from print to digital, allow me access to digital without paying for another subscription, or even allow me access to back issues. Almost every other digitally published magazine (now including Popular Science) allows print subscription access to digital.
This app is indicative of why Popular Mechanics are succeeding when so many other traditional American magazines are failing. Very well put together, instantly available, works seamlessly on iOS on an iPad or iPhone. And the magazine itself is as cutting edge and informative as ever. Nice to see some things never change! Definitely recommended. 5/5 Stars!
It's a fun way to carry and read on the road. I subscribe to the "paper" copy, and would get both if there was a special offer! I love passing the mag on to others while keeping issues, for future reference, on my iPad.
