Customer Reviews

Demand for extra $ from print subscribers makes no ¢.

Hey, Rolling Stone advertisers, do you want to get your ads seen in more places by more people? If so, you should advertise somewhere else, because RS is determined to make iPad access as painful as possible for its print subscriber base. That's right: If current subscribers want to read issues both in hard copy and digital form, they have to pony up extra for the iPad edition. What percentage of subscribers do you suppose would go for that? One percent? Two, maybe?

Contrast: Print subscribers to The New Yorker can download years' worth of issues they might never have received in the mail. Such service makes the magazine's premium subscription rate easy to justify. Generosity begets generosity; cheapness begets cheapness.

Double dipping

Hey, you're a loyal rolling stone subscriber who is excited to be living in the digital age. You have a print subscription, but you left your hard copy on the bathroom floor and now you're at the dentist waiting for your root canal. Want to finish that awesome half-read article by Taibbi on your phone/tablet? Too bad. You'll have to buy the magazine again! Yes, that's right, your subscription doesn't count when it comes to this app. Rolling Stone wants you to be either a full Luddite or full 21st century digital humanoid. You can't be both - unless of course you want to pay Jann twice ...

Major Problems

There seems to be some major problems accessing the digital archives which are supposed to be included with a physical subscription. There is no way to create an account to gain access to these archives--lots of error messages and improper redirects. Hopefully they will get this fixed soon.
