Ratings and Reviews
We became parents in early January and have used Recently as an alternative to the baby month sticker pictures. Instead of one silly picture with the sticker, we've used this awesome print service to create a magazine (featuring our son) every month. The magazine prints beautiful 50 full page or 100 half page photos on heavy paper and that gives several (somewhat limited) photo options (no cropping or resize options in the app). Although it is not a terribly intuitive app- you can easily organize your photos into a folder on your phone and upload that folder to be published. It is a fantastic option for people that never print photos from their phone to easily get them printed into a high quality magazine that will look beautiful on coffee tables or book shelves (even the spine can be personalized).
Worst customer service, EVER!
This company speaks with condescending tones and acts as though all billing issues are because of the customer. The books take hours to create because errors occur at least 20 times during the photo upload process. Because of this, I tried to cancel. They stated my subscription was cancelled yet continued to charge my credit card monthly. I then tried to get a refund and was denied. I changed my credit card number and had to open a complaint through capital one against them. Fast forward 8 months and they again charged my card through iTunes and then refused to honor or refund the amounts they have charged for all previous months. This company is a horrible to deal with yet I can't seem to get rid of them without cancelling iTunes all together. We all know, that is not possible! Now, all I can do is fight to get books published so I at least get my money back through a product. I just attempted to do so and was CHARGED an additional $8.99. I'm at a loss as to how to get refunds at this point.
Developer Response ,
Glad we chatted online. When you didn't get around to publish magazines while subscribed - we quickly responded that you still had credits for those months, and how to use them! Recently knows users might miss a month or two and we don't delete those credits.
We realized together from your email that, at first, you attempted a method to make the magazines that meant for ordering extra copies (hence the charge) so we refunded it that day, and instructed you on how to publish those credits for free.
Users can cancel at anytime, and nothing will be billed. It's not through iTunes. There's a cancel account right in the app, under settings.
Awesome customer service!
What a great small business! I was hesitant to order my first magazine, so I kept checking and rechecking the magazine order. The cover reset at some point to the middle of the square photo, I emailed and they responded promptly to assure me(picture and all) that my original picture portion would be displayed. My magazine is beautiful, my mailman bent it which was slightly disappointing but the pictures were displayed as if a professional had done it. Next order I had a special request that the magazine be sent directly to my mom as a Mother's Day present and told them that the mailman had bent the last one so please write do not bend! Again, they responded promptly and acted as if it were no trouble at all! They even sent my last one to print again for me! Very impressed! Thank you!
