Troublesome App


I would recommend not downloading this buggy app and not subscribing to PC Magazine. I subscribed because I wanted to support the great tech journalism they do. But it was a mistake to do so, and if you haven’t committed yet, I suggest you rethink it.

The irony of PC Magazine’s app being terrible is amazing. And the entire support staff seems to have been laid off, because I have just sent the third request for assistance over the past two weeks and have yet to receive a response on any of them.

I have had multiple issues with my password suddenly being unrecognized and my account access not being valid, but I complained loudly and often enough that these problems were eventually resolved. Now I have a new problem but when I ask for help, nobody’s home.

I subscribe but am unable to read the December issue. It shows up on the Issues tab, with the option to buy or to subscribe. It does not show up on the Library tab at all, though all the previous issues do. I cannot restore purchases because I receive an error message saying there is nothing to restore. I am logged in. I have tried logging out and back in again, but the situation remains the same.

My subscription doesn’t expire for 7 more months. I wish it expired now.

Worst customer service ever!


I upgraded my Iphone and my subscription would not restore. I contacted Apple who said they had no control or ability to fix my issue and suggested that I contact PC magazine subscription support directly to resolve my issue. Well after over two weeks and 3 emails asking them if they could resolve my issue sending them iTunes Id as well as a screen shot of my subscription page proving that I had a valid and current subscription I just gave up! You would think that a tech magazine would be better equipped to handle these types of issues. Sad but needless too say I won’t be renewing for another year. Just a heads up to my fellow techies.

Hard to imagine a worse platform for this magazine


Subscribing to this “magazine” makes me long for the days of printed page. Every time I start the app it asks if I want to restore my purchases. Once I get past all that and start reading navigation is not to bad until I decide to exit. It follows no conventions to bring up a logical place to close the issue and perhaps read a different issue by returning to the library. Basically the only obvious way out to another issue is to force close the app and restart it. For as much IT savvy as they purport to have available they have managed to completely ignore designing an intuitive interface.
