Ratings and Reviews
Won’t log in my subscription
The app allows me to register my print subscription, and recognizes that I do, in fact, have a print subscription. But once I “Log In”, the app doesn’t recognize that I’m logged in, and requires me to purchase individual issues to view them.
For some reason, my review didn't appear. I wrote the piece above because I realized I didn't touch on the content. My previous review dealt with the interface. Its just not good. They deleted all back issues from my library with the promise that they'll reappear in the future. Why not just wait until they're all online before switching over? Secondly, there is a new feature or section in the app called "Live" and it's got all this content that iPad/iPhone users can't access because it's Flash based. I guess since they created the app for the app store and iPads only account for 75% of the market, they thought… I can't imagine why they went to the trouble to do it. Anyhow, I think it's a waste of money considering it's in addition to your print subscription.
Just buy the magazine.
I don't know if it's a limitation of the pixel mags format or a business decision by imbibe. But there is no excuse not to make the digital version free with a print subscription. I was given the print edition as a gift and downloaded the app, excited to try it out, only to find no option to link up my subscription, and no explanation in any of the support material or on Imbibe's website. Coming from years of happy reading of Wired in print and on tablets, this just seems archaic and capricious.
