Not allowing download of subscription

I am seeing the same issue as noted by others. I have 2 December issues showing and only a buy/subscribe option for the current issue (cannot download). I did call their support number and got a poor response. "Our app sometimes has issues with iOS 8". Delete the app and reinstall. This means I have to download any issues I want on my iPad again. The person on the line did make a comment that I maybe want to try again on February 6. He wouldn't say if there was a new app being worked on or if there might be some server upgrade that will fix the issues. Personally, I think there is nothing happening, but he wanted to say something.

Fortunately, I have the current issue in paper so can at least read that one.

can't delete and get to Internet browser and my other apps

Smithsonian institution please make this app in general to be delectable and I love everything you do but please make it delectable every time I get in your app I need to turn my iPad off and it's gone thank goodness please make that a future update at first I got mad because I thought I was stuck but then I gave up and turned it off and then I got to be able to get to my other apps if I couldn't I would be a very mad but it didn't further people please keep this in mine and my experience in this app was good but I have a member ship so it may work differently I don't know sorry this was so long thank you smithsonian😀!

reinstall to fix problems downloading latest

I had the same problem as the 1-star reviews. I have a current subscription but could not download the latest issue. I contacted support and was told there is a problem that required deleting and reinstalling the app. Inconvenient, but that fixed it.
