Customer Reviews

Excellent App

I don't understand the negative reviews. This app is a vehicle for an online subscription and to purchase back issues at a substantial discount. There is nothing free here. Nor should there be. Like virtually every other magazine, neither back issues nor a subscription are free. If you like this fine magazine and would like to subscribe or purchase back issues at $3.99, this is a great app.

Great reading

Definitely deserves 5 stars, just wish the subscription gave access to more without having to pay extra

Not free

Thought it sounded like a great app. But it only is selling "how it works " articles or magazines. If it gave you one for free at least you would have an idea what you were getting if you bought one. This will be the first app that I will not only delete from my phone but also try to delete from my iTunes library of purchased apps.
