Terrible app and customer service

They took my money for subscription and then could not access issues. Customer service is very unhelpful. There are other reviews of this same issue from last year and they still have not addressed it. They must not care! Save your money!

I love this format. I used to subscribe to physical editions years ago, and have always missed this magazine. Now I can look at it anywhere without wifi, and backlit. I read it much faster this way.

How to fix the crashing problem

The app hadn't worked in months. Out of desperation, I decided to delete and reinstall the app. That somehow resolved the crashing problem and I was able to use the app again. Restoring the past issues was also quick and painless.
