Terrible new app!


I wish I could give this app 0 stars. Had the same issue others are having with accessing my issues. Zinio support was able to fix it for me with a work around, although no indication of whether they can actually solve the problem. Now that I do have access, I'm still unlikely to read any issues due to the extremely poor quality of text, images, and UX (why would I pay tons of money for state of the art Apple technology only to use it to read what looks like low quality scans of a print magazine???).
In contrast, I found the old app to be wonderful. Why Outside took something that was a great experience and turned it into garbage is beyond me. Will certainly not be resubscribing unless something changes significantly.

Yet another review, with no good news...

The Navigator

I’m beginning to wonder why I should care at all about this app. Maybe it’s because Outside deserves so much more than a flat file reader for an app. Two weeks ago, the print version of the December issue arrived in the mail; the digital version appeared today, over a week after I finished reading it. Outside, if your goal is to become irrelevant in the digital publishing world, then you’re right on track.

Do yourselves a favor; go back to version 6.8. There was nothing wrong with it.

Previous update:

So, November 10th came and went, and the much promised app update didn’t appear. Yes, the login issue is fixed, but now I’m unable to download any issues at all (hoping this is a temporary issue at the server end), even though I’m logged in.

Outside, you’re losing ground and circulation by the minute. Better act fast.

Fix It!

Hell's Belle

My subscription auto renewed in October and I can't access anything! All of my previously downloaded issues are gone, and I can't download the latest issue. I want my money back for this subscription and I'll go back to killing trees and snail mail.
I was in IT for 28 years, if I released new software that didn't work I would have been fired. Obviously this doesn't have the same quality control... Ever heard of testing and verifying that your changes work?
