Doesn’t work well with iPad Pro

My favorite magazine, but the app really stinks with iPad Pro. Doesn’t fit to screen, zooming in on things is unpredictable, and scrolling once zoomed is hit or miss. It’s a shame because the photography from this magazine is epic and would suit the Pro screen so well if it worked.

Good Magazine, Bad App!

I really like this magazine, it's one of the best ski magazines out there. The app is terrible, I have a subscription and it will no longer let me download the new issues. I have contacted support over the last two weeks with no resolution. The app also locks you out when you are offline and have not logged in online recently, very frustrating. I requested a refund from Apple with no response.

From bad to worse

App is garbage. Crashes on startup after working for a brief period. I get really tired of uninstalling and reinstalling this POS. Hey Backcountry Magazine, the jokers at PixelMags are tarnishing your brand. And they don't respond to customer services requests ever. Say no to PixelMags for a better life.
