Customer Service is terrible.

I’ve been emailing immediate Media since the previous last update, I’ve lost all my magazines, they have copy and pasted me emails to avoid answering my questions, told me to go the apple store to resolve my issues (I subscribe directly through immediate media) they even told me to go and talk to Tesco as years ago I swapped Tesco vouchers for a subscription. Been told out right I have no subscription but I have proved that I have and have been reading them up until October 2018. Unfortunately still no resolution, this magazine was such a pleasure to me and still would be if this could be resolved......

Still no resolution, needed the magazines for coursework so downloaded the new one to keep me going while the issue is resolved and was surprised with the new look, personally i don’t think it’s as pleasurable to read, there’s no option to be able to view it the old way and the secret garden doesn’t work.

What a shame. ☹️ star rating is now the lowest I can give it.

Just to sum up, its been over a month now and my emails are now being ignored.

New IT team needed.

Great magazine but needs access to the secret garden sorted. IT team still unable to provide access to the Secret Garden but can send lots of messages for me to spend money to complete my collection.
Now given up on ever finding the Secret Garden and unsubscribed.

This App is so much worse than the old one

I really don’t like this app, even with the update I’ve just spent an hour trying to download the December issue and given up. The videos don’t run and I miss the content that we cannot see as we could in the old app. I’m giving up on digital and taking out the magazine subscription especially as now it’s the same price!
