Customer Reviews

Horrible app and customer service

This app is a fraction of what it should be. I haven't been able to download the new issue on time for months now and still can't get the most recent one. Moreover, when you're on the app homepage and want to read a featured article, the app makes you log in for each article you read despite already being logged in on the app itself. So, reading eight featured articles require eight individual log-ins. Ridiculous. It's a shame such stellar content is drug down by such poor digital management. It's ironic that they're covering the advancement of technology (the most recent issue is on automation) while simultaneously failing at the most basic automation themselves. Also, I've called them 5 times about this issue and emailed them. No fix yet. Just the same old "yeah, we know there's a problem, we'll fix it" runaround for months now. Horrible customer service.

Useless App and customer service.

Since mid-June 2015 when issue 40 was available for download, it does not recognize my digital subscription. I have e-mailed customer service about my problem three times and I always get an automatic response that they are experiencing "technical problems". No solution so far.
I called customer service yesterday and they have no clue about anything. I have even deleted the app and downloaded it again and the problem became even worse because the prior issues that I had in my library are not available to be downloaded either. I don't think I will renew my subscription when is due in November.

App does not recognize my digital subscription

The app recognizes me, but I cannot access new issues or my library. I emailed customer service, and they say they're working on the problem. It seems others have had this problem for a while. Great magazine, poor digital management. At the least, the magazine should send an email to all digital subscribers acknowledging the problem and a timeframe for the fix. It's ridiculous that this problem has gone on so long.
