Good Food magazine

An excellent magazine. I have been subscribing for a number of years now and still find lots of recipes I want to try.
It has changed my family's eating habits for the better and my husband enjoys cooking now. I have persuaded my Mum to take out a subscription. She is on her own but so many of the recipes can be frozen in portions, which is really useful. The calorie counter is great for helping me control my weight, whilst enjoying super tasty meals. The photos are excellent and make me want to try different meals, at the same time giving me an idea of how the finished item should look. I would say that 99% of the recipes have turned out brilliantly without any tweaking although other readers comments help to give ideas for variations. I have tried many of the vegetarian recipes even though I am not a vegetarian and have thoroughly enjoyed them. Even my carnivore husband has tried some and liked them too!

Great magazine on iPad but problems with new issue

I recently signed up for the annual subscription with a 1 month trial. The January edition downloaded without problem and is fantastic as I hoped it would be.

The problems started when a few days ago the February edition was released. The app doesn't appear to acknowledge my subscription as instead of the download button under the February edition it has so buy for £2.99 button. I'm still in the 1 month period for the trial but was told this should cover any editions released in that period.

I have been told by the support team that it's a known error and I need to select the buy button but then cancel when it asks for my apple password. It should then change the button to download.

This didn't work and I've now been told the same thing twice by the same support team. I've even tried removing the app completely and restored purchases but with no luck. It allowed me to re-download the January edition.

This needs sorting immediately and I don't want more generic email replies please.

Good visuals but don't rely on saving stuff

The concept of the app is great, and almost a better experience than the paper mag. However, if you decide to try to store your favourite recipes to look at later, from time to time, the app 'forgets' you have bought an edition, which you have to re-download and (of course) it forgets all the recipes you saved. It crashes quite frequently and takes a massive amount of MB storage.

Shame, otherwise I think this would get 5*, but honestly if you can't save recipes, why not stick to the paper copy?

Also randomly from time to time 'forgets' you are a subscriber and you are asked to pay for a copy you're entitled to.

Overall support is slow and weak as other reviews have pointed out
