Unhappy DE subscriber ,

GREAT magazine w/ the WORST APP EVER

I’ve been a Down East subscriber continuously since March 2010, having converted to a digital subscription in 2013.

After the app was updated approximately 2 yrs ago, my existing subscription and all my past purchases were wiped out. Consequently, I haven’t been able to access the magazine since that update. The app won’t even let me reset my password. Yet I have continued to be charged annually for my subscription.

I’ve called Down East and Apple support several times during the past 2 yrs. Each time, they offered no real solution except to refund my subscription cost and let me re-subscribe. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE.

I have paid for EVERY ISSUE since 2013 and you owe me access to ALL those issues. I’m sick and tired of being treated like crap by you people. Either come up with an acceptable solution to this ridiculous situation or I will pursue a legal remedy.

Doesn’t Work

All the photos appear briefly and then disappear. My digital subscription is worthless without the photos. I’ve tried to order back issues, but the app just sends me to a network error page and suggests trying again later. Terrible. Please fix!! I want to love your magazine!

What happened?

Suddenly I can no longer see any photos or other artwork - just limited amounts of text. The app also refuses to let me log in - tells me it doesn’t recognize Id/password.
