What's New in Version 8.0
Stability improvements and other minor bug fixes.
Can't download content
App not much good if can't download the content! Followed all steps from customer support including the good old delete the app and start again and still doesn't sync even though it says 'you have an active subscription'. Problem started right after upgrading to the new version. Can access the website version no problem.
Update: Sep 19. Still can't download anything. Support slow to respond, usually two days between replies. They don't seem to believe it's possible that what I'm saying is true even I sent a video. Spoke to a nice lady in Brisbane (HBR support not MAZ) who tried to connect me with technical support. Got cut off several times so she gave me the direct number which didn't ring through. Calling back again she said tech support will contact me. MAZ contacted me instead and back to square one. It really can't be that hard to use an app that has no configuration and as others have pointed out very few features. Key selling point is their content which I can't access. I have now spent more time trying to get the app to work than I would have spent reading the .... magazine! HBR, MAZ?
Literally the worst magazine application since the iPad was invented
Horrible execution. Pathetic UI. Non-existent features and functions. No library management. Who knows which issues are even downloaded, much less unread. No interactive functions. If Washington Post, Time, and nearly all other apps can provide a solid experience, then you can too. Literally, this should be a case study in HBR on exactly how to flub a launch and more than irritate your digital customer base. Even worse, this is just another failure upon failure - all versions of the HBR app have been horrible. Now you have found a new low. HBR: you are in dire need of a competition digital team. This is not sustainable.
A sad digital version of a great publication
Unfortunately I have to agree with many of the reviewers here. The prior app was nothing to write home about, but at least it was basically functional and I had a lot of content downloaded.
Now it appears that is all gone? I can't even be sure since I can no longer even log in! It tells me that I have no active subscription, can't find my account credentials, etc. etc.
Hopefully one day HBR wakes up and does a killer digital version. They have so much great content, its really a shame this app remains awful.
