Ratings and Reviews

Missing one small thing


If I could access my digital subscription it would be awesome!

good luck


This app is so cool👍🏻

Good, but not quite there yet.


Being a paper subscriber I am highly disappointed that wasn't able to transfer my subscription. So, I purchased one magazine to test it out. (it's not like 8 bucks ever killed anyone). The digital version seems to hold true to the paper edition, but with the CD or other special content not included, you're not getting your monies worth.

For now, I'll leave the 3 star rating until those two issues are resolved. And once they are I'll gladly give a 5-star rating and continue my subscription exclusively on the digital format.

P.S. to the users complaining about the app being "free", you make a moot point. It sounds like to me you would rather them make you pay for the reader app AND then purchase issues once inside. No? I thought you might say that. So until the checker at 7-11 forces you to pay a dollar to just LOOK at the magazine, I would say it's a pretty straightforward system. Cheers!
