Previous (2017) purchases are gone with update.


The app updated a few months ago and I am no longer able to retrieve any of my previous purchases from 2017 or earlier. I contacted the developer and did all the recommended procedures and they basically said “oh well, contact the publisher.” I have all my Apple receipts, but I’m not sure how this will help. Lion’s Roar Foundation should be aware they have a developer who may be ‘nonattached’ to their responsibility to resolve technical issues : ) It’s a good magazine, but be aware if you don’t read them promptly, you may lose them, permanently, unless impermanence means I might get them back someday...

Past purchases are gone


While I understand the concept of impermanence, I would still like the issue I bought back in 2014 to be available. Only goes back to 2015.

This one takes patience

DC newsie

I was ready to give this one star and walk away -- maybe even try to nag the seller into giving me a refund for this and Shambhala Sun. But instead, I spent five or six hours over two days installing and deleting the app...and then waiting. Last night, the app sat on the splash screen for darn near 20 minutes, and then it worked. And now I love it. Once Buddhadharma was installed, then Shambhala Sun installed as well (after a 10 minute wait at the splash screen). Perhaps it's appropriate, given the magazine, but patience was key to getting it to work. That doesn't say much for the platform...would give it five stars if it wouldn't have taken so many hours to get it to work (on a brand new, WiFi-connected iPad mini w/ a verified working 20Mbps connection).
