Print subscriber who can’t download anything

Outside magazine claims to offer full access to the Outside+ app for print subscribers, but unfortunately this isn’t true. As a print subscriber, I am unable to download or view any of the issues. I can sign in, but am prompted to subscribe or buy each time. In short, poorly designed app, and the app customer service (Zinio) doesn’t pay attention to the actual problems transpiring. They say to reset password and choose “Digital Subscriber” when logging in which isn’t an option. Only “Print Subscriber” is which I mentioned multiple times. No response on how to actually remedy the situation, and Outside refers me to the app developer Zinio for problems. If you are considering subscribing, don’t do it for the app access because it’s so poorly designed and serviced. I still enjoy the print copies though. Hopefully they improve this app or change developers.


Paid subscription just stopped working

The app just stopped functioning for me. A few months ago it seemed that my subscription ended and I could no longer download the magazine. I tried the normal things like reloading the app, logging in again but it didn’t work. He help desk doesn’t help either. Now I’m two months behind. Outside stopped sending me the paper issues as well. I checked online and my subscription is good for several more months.


Best magazine iPhone app

I subscribe to quite a few magazines and almost all of them are unusable on a non-plus sized iPhone. Outside is formatted differently on the iPad app vs the oh en app so that it’s still readable on the phone. I wish all magazines would follow outsides lead and create usable phone apps.
