Unable to view

I’ve been charged but I can’t see anything. It went from being able to view my purchases to now being forced to sign in but I never set a user name other than the purchase I made through apple store. Come on guys!! Just want to read the magazine.


Unable to view archive

Unable to view past issues in the archive. App says unable to download at this time. App needs to be updated to fix this bug since I'm paying for archive access. I've tried reinstalling and no luck still. I can view current issue at least.

Absolute RIPOFF!!! Buyer beware

I have been a subscriber since 2014 and I have successfully read about 11 magazines total. Support is NON-Existent. Another great example of why it’s better just to get your drumming news and interviews for free online.
