Shocking Customer Service


Having been an avid reader of Q magazine since issue one I always looked forward to each new issue. I have had a digital subscription for about 5 years, however, after downloading the recent new app upgrade I have lost all previous issues, from October 2016 onwards, that I have paid for and could previously access. I have not been able to read the last two months issues all paid for on a yearly subscription. I have emailed Customer Services about ten times so far and after replying to my first few emails with the usual 're-download the app, turn you iPad off and on again, log out and log back in etc' I've now hit a wall of silence as it's clear there is a major bug in this new update and none of their suggestions solved the problem. I have cancelled my ongoing subscription but as Bauer Magazines have already taken my money for a years subscription that I can no longer access and don't seem willing to reimburse me then I guess it is only right to call this theft! No stars for a previously great app and no stars for customer service.

Lost my back issues

Sherlock & Watson

So once again another update - another complete fail. This time despite following the instructions I now can't access past issues I have purchased. ABSOLUTELY USELESS - if I could give 0 stars I would

Have cancelled my subscription

More work to be done

What have you done!! This was already fairly average, but bearable. Now I spend 25% of my commute, waiting for the app to realise I have no connection... I download copies at home so naff off. Also I have unfashionable notification mark which I can't clear and like many other users that drives me bonkers. I can find no discernible improvement whatsoever.

Old review-
If the newsstand actually deems to allow you access to your paid subscription the user interface is still someway off. It doesn't allow readers to save their place or to select a specific page from within contents. As a consequence you spend more time finding the section you want than actually reading. Links to websites from adverts and to a streaming service of your choice, would greatly improve things too.
