Customer Reviews

Worst app ever

They may have fired all developers because there is no tech support. A person who downloads the app will regret the lost minutes of life. This app is the two-fisted soup sandwich of sandwiches, the baloney pop-tart of breakfast foods. It's the toilet trout of fish. It's as if they set out to produce the world's most awful app ever. It may have been programmed by Ms. Green's kindergarten class because they were sick of finger painting.

Case study in how to piss off longtime subscribers

I have subscribed to this mag since its inception. The digital option was really nice. It was suddenly cut off with no notice, and their tech support can't be bothered to respond to inquiries. I won't be renewing my subscription in either medium.
