A once adequate App, gone bad

This app used to be fine, now it is terrible. It takes a long time to download an issue, but you have to be inside the app, no background downloading outside of the app! You can no longer start to read an issue whilst it is downloading and it tends to forget which page you were on and actually just refreshes the issue putting you back on the cover page!
Plus now it keeps removing the issues I have downloaded and shows issues with a price, until i hit the Restore Purchases again, which thankfully updates the issues to show the Download button at least. What has happened to this app?!

Empire is a fantastic magazine and I’ve been reading for over 20 years, but I’m seriously considering unsubscribing due to the now awful App.

A definite improvement

I’ve been reluctant to modify my previously scathing review of this app as I wanted to be sure my biggest bugbear had been fixed. Happy to say it looks like the developer has finally sorted the problem of the page you’re up to being constantly forgotten.

Sure, I still get prompts to subscribe every time I fire up the app (even though I’m already a subscriber) and I don’t yet know if it may forget I’m a subscriber again and wipe my downloaded issues like it has in the past... but for now I’m very happy the above magazine progress problem appears to have been fixed at long last. Keep it up!

Shockingly bad

Appalling customer service, emails ignored or were completely unhelpful, ignoring the points I made or questions I asked. Subscription was supposed to have started three months ago but I’ve only been able to download one issue (not the latest one, the one in the middle!). Today when I tried to continue reading it, I was told I was not logged in. Tried numerous times to log in all of which failed. Tried the ‘problems logging in link’ and it told me my account was not recognised. The same one I’ve been using successfully up till now, the one stored in my password manager! Giving up now. Don’t waste your money, Bauer Media seem like classic rogue traders to me and the app really is dire.
