Ratings and Reviews

iTunes Subscription Lost


Update- I found a work around. Delete the app, then power cycle your device (just deleting won’t work, you have to power cycle). Re-install the app. Once you’ve re-installed, follow the directions in the app to restore your purchases (this worked on an iPad Pro 10.5 and an iPhone 7+, each in the exact same way). Because the app is still broken I won’t change my rating but maybe these steps will help someone else get back their purchased issues.

Since the App updated to the new version I can’t access new or historical issues with a valid iTunes subscription. I’ve tried following the in-app instructions, deleting and re-installing, nothing works. I have ten months left and a lot of issues that should be available based on past subscriptions that aren’t there anymore. Please fix this.

Lost everything


Should be zero stars. All my issues are gone. And while it tells me the new issue is available, it never shows up because I. Can’t. Access. *Anything*. I have signed in over and over and tried to restore purchases and—nothing. All those issues—gone. Don’t update! Better yet, find another way to subscribe.

I have been an avid subscriber for several years. The latest “update” has taken all of my issues. I have tried to jump through all of the hoops to reinstall and restore my iTunes purchase to no avail. I sincerely hope this situation will be remedied. I even tried to email for support but was put into a loop that I could not so much as send an email for help.

The magazines are great... but if I can’t view them, what is the point! All those previous issues are also gone... one remark stated that early issues are not restorable...
So disappointed!!

DO NOT SUBSCRIBE online until this is remedied!!!!!
