You simply don't care about your loyal readers
Every other magazine I subscribe to allows me to adjust the text size but Rolling Stone. You've shrunk the type so small it's unreadable. You have apparently done away with the interactive features that used to exist. And finally, to make matters worse, you require print subscribers to buy a digital subscription too to have digital access, unlike virtually every other magazine in existence. As a result of the deficiencies and your failure to address these concerns voiced by thousands of subscribers besides me, I will not renew either of these subscriptions until you address these concerns. Read the reviews on iTunes and you'll see I'm not alone. Despite many, many people raising similar concerns, you do nothing which leads to only one, inescapable conclusion: you simply do not care about your customers. So, count me among the many, recent former subscribers. Let me know when you start caring about the people that actually buy your product, and I'll consider another subscription. Sad part is, I really love the content, but that love is substantially outweighed by my hatred of your obvious disdain for your customers.
Keeps getting worse
I'm a print subscriber who used to enjoy digital access as well. I could download the digital version before my print copy arrived. I could flip through & enjoy the interactive features until the print version arrived, though I preferred to read the articles in the actual magazine.
After the most recent update, it took over a week to restore my previous purchases. And when I got them back, it was without any of the features I had enjoyed before. Adding to that, there's an issue that the app insists that I need to pay for even though I've been a continuous subscriber.
I no longer get notification when there's a new issue available. Tonight I went to download the latest issue,it wanted me to pay for the issue. After signing out & signing back in, I had lost my entire library. Since restore purchases still doesn't work, I'm in the process of downloading each issue one at a time. Again.
And to top it all off, when I do try to read the digital version, there's no way to save my place.
So much potential, so poorly done
Not an Update! A downgrade.
They've gone and made this app worse. It's just a blurry PDF now- for the same price! There is no magazine better suited for digital than rolling stone. What a disappointment. To make matters worse, they're charging the same price for this pdf as they were for the app!!! I've cancelled as of today.
I've been subscribing to Rolling Stone for at least 30 years (yeek) and I've been waiting for an iPad version since the first iPad. Can you imagine what a great Rolling Stone app could be? Deep dives into artists history and back catalogs, full streams of songs on the albums reviewed, interactive stories with live maps, interviews, anything to add insight. Instead what we get is nothing much more than a glitchy PDF. Please, Jenn, check out the Esquire app or the wired app and see what a magazine app can be. Also have the sense to include the app with the print subscription. Nobody should have to pay for the same content twice.
