Ratings and Reviews



Bought a subscription, downloaded my first copy, hit read and crash. Tried many times.



This app barely opens. I am a subscriber to the hard copy version and I thought this version would be of benefit when I do not have the paper version with me. I thought that since they were advertising the iPad version in the magazine, it would be fairly easy to use. It is not: difficult to log in, the app asks you to repurchase the magazines you already have, even the web based sections of the magazine are difficult if not impossible to access. I have not been able to download a single issue yet.

Given the age of some of the reviews, it does not appear that the iPad version is a priority for them. Apple should consider booting this app if they do not make improvements soon.


Worst Online Magazine App EVER!

App doesn't work. Supposedly, as a subscriber, all you have to do is download the "virtual" online version. However, when you try, it asks for your iTunes password and requests you pay $2.99 for the "free" download. When you call their tech support, they have the same problem and say they'll look into it--but never do. When you call the publisher, they also have the same problem, also say they'll look into it, and also never do. What total amateurs! The thing doesn't work. Don't bother!
