Beware of "sweepstakes" survey!!!
When reading through the magazine I went to the next page and was presented a page asking me to take a survey about the Food Network Magazine app. I figured I would, so I clicked the button. Upon doing so, I was presented with a page that said the survey period was over, but I could still enter a sweepstakes for a $100 American Express gift card. I clicked on the button to enter the sweepstakes and filled out the sweepstakes form. I was then presented with a confirmation for my SUBSCRIPTION TO THE MAGAZINE FOR 10 ISSUES FOR $18. This was NOT what any page during the entire process informed me I was doing. I read every word on all pages, since it was for a sweepstakes and I wanted to know what I was entering, exactly. There was not much to read, but I can assure you AT NO TIME, AND NO WHERE did it indicate in anyway I was agreeing to purchase a magazine subscription.
The "survey" and "sweepstakes" were FALSE AND MISLEADING. BEWARE. DO NOT CLICK ON ANY LINKS. I will be uninstalling the app to make sure I don't have to pay anything else for any other subscriptions I didn't order.
Good, but not great.
First, the good. This app reads like a magazine - turning pages, gorgeous photos, the ability to flip to the exact recipe you want, and the reliability of winning recipes Food Network consistently delivers. The bad? The inability to export recipes once you find one you want to try. You can create a shopping list of ingredients, but without a print/email option, I'm not really sure what good that does you. If these options ARE available, then readers shouldn't have to hunt for them, obviously.
I love Food Network, but the developers of this app should take a gander at Martha Stewart's magazine apps for exceptional examples of more user-friendly design.
Great app, but....
Love this! Wonderful and interactive, but I want to email some of the recipes to friends and family. No way to do that currently. Should be easy to fix. Also, I would like to combine my paper magazine subscription and my iPad subscription. I would also like to save my favorite recipes to a recipe box like I do on my laptop while at the website. It would be so convenient to pull them up and whip them out on my iPad on the kitchen counter.
