Customer Reviews

Slow improvements

Since the last copy I bought the experience has definitely improved. I found it more easy to read on IPad in comparison of lat year. I really liked the possibility to have the article read by a speaker but it is barely a beta state with two main issues:
1 There is no way no control the playback
2 The reading stop as soon as the iPad turn the screen off

Please improve your users experience. It is a shame that such a good magazine want to spoil itself in the digital version.


This is one of the best apps to get for a 12 - 88 year old. I am 12 and I love this app. However, you need a subscription to make full use of the app. The other reviews are on the non-updated version.

Cannot access digital subscription!

This app doesn't work-not sure what it's supposed to do. I bought the digital subscription but I cannot get it on my iPhone or anything else. Ridiculous. Customer services' response was that they had 'updated my account' but I still can't access it.
