Customer Reviews

Cannot login but able to see issues

As other subscribers have pointed out, there is no way to login and see the free digital issues (with the printed subscription) using this app. But, every time a new issue is released, I receive an email from the magazine saying that a new issue is available to see just by clicking on the link provided. I have tried it and, without even login in (maybe because I am using the link inside their email), I am able to see on line or download not only the current issue but the older ones. So, there is a way around it, but it is a pity that the app does not provide an easier way than having to wait for an email with a link to have access to the digital version.

Digital Delivery Cancelled?

I have been a subscriber to Air & Space Magazine for at least 26 years. I receive the print copy as usual but have stopped receiving the Digital Delivery version through this app. Are you eliminating that option so that fans of the magazine have to subscribe twice? Please say that that is not the case as I think it's quite unfair. Many have stated that they are experiencing the same thing in their reviews.

Please fix the app

I've also been a print subscriber since the very first issue. The app used to work fairly well, but there is no longer a way to sign in. Selecting App Support here takes one to a nonexistent web page. Maybe this is a metaphor for the current state of the US space program.
