Ratings and Reviews

Dislike latest update

Good American

I dislike the latest version of Southern Living app. It is slow to load my issues. There is now a "latest" tab which is confusing because it prominently displays a note to "Subscribe and save" as if I was not already subscribed. Once in the issue, you can no longer flip pages and the header and footer bars appear on every page until you start to scroll. It takes away from the experience of feeling like you are looking at a non digital magazine. I also dislike the way the "issues" tab is organized. I like the way issues were organized in the previous version of the app. When moving thru the issue pages I accidentally went to the table of contents. I dislike that the table of contents is just a list now with no design around it. I also you have to know exactly where you were in order to go back to that exact page. Makes me want to go back to the paper subscription.

Further requests


I was thrilled to see Southern Living now has an electronic version. I had contacted Southern Living over a month ago asking when this was going to be available, but never received a reply.

A couple of requests for improvement. Over all the years I have been reading SL, I have torn out articles of interest, especially travel articles to file away so when we visit those states I have all of your suggested places to consider. I also do this with the recipes I want to try. With the new electronic version, I cannot bookmark or print a page. After I have finished reading and tearing out all of the pages I want to keep for future reference from the printed version, I am able to throw the rest of the magazine away.

I would also like to see a hyperlink for all websites referenced. Currently, when I'm reading the printed version I need my computer or iPad close by so I can go to the site or I mark the page and go back to it when I'm at a computer.

Better than print. Easy to use. Up-to date!

Skis like rock

No more ugly stack of magazines, no more lugging them like a hellish anchor! This app is fluid, easy to use with built in tutorials, and i dont feel i am missing anything by not having the paper copy in hand. Being stationed abroad with the military (germany and stan) i get the issues almost two weeks later if i'm lucky. This puts a big damper on the holiday issues in particular. With the app, I know i am not missing anything. Moreover the magazine makes it in one piece. Although no fault of the companies, sometimes things just don't make it to theater in the best of conditions.
