Flaws with update

App was clunky but worked previously, I have paid for a subscription. But for some reason since update one issue I previously paid for and downloaded is showing the request URL is not found rather than articles. I want to finish reading that issue before reading current one!

I find the articles of Foreign Affairs related within international politics, world’s most critical problems, as well as past historical events as extremely interesting and useful.

Generally, I enjoy reading FA.

App Limits Subscription

I immediately found myself in the help section trying to register and log in, which apparently can't be done without a hard copy.

If you purchase the mag from the app before having a hard copy, you wont have an account number and cannot register and log in.

I cannot access my subscription on my pc when I don't have my iPad. It will allow me to register on their website, but requires that I buy a second subscription to have the same content on my pc, which I can access via the iPad browser anyhow. I feel cheated.
