What happened?


You give us an 'update'. Usually these things are an improvement, but not this time. I prefer the previous version, cos the way the articles were shown was much better than being forced to look at every single page of articles that I have no interest in. Then I download the September issue, looking forward to reading it. I got the lead page of the 4 reasons this person switched to bing, but nothing else!!! The article thumbnails show no problem, but the rest of the mag is non-existant!


Terrible app


Can't download any current issues. Subscription paid through December. Poor service for a new app.

Update: They fixed the app within 24 hours. That is what a top notch company does. Although the problem should never hit the general public. Four stars for the fix but two for existence in the first place.

Hi JSG404, Thanks for downloading the new version of the PCWorld Digital Magazine app! We had some login issues when the update was released last week, but those have since been cleared up. If you are still having problems, please email or call us at (800) 234-3498 for assistance.



Junk app....signed into my account and tried to renew subscription. I get an Internal Server Error message every time. In addition, I tried to update the mailing address on my account AGAIN, but the app says my correct address is on already on file--then when I check my profile, it still has the old wrong address. This app is a waste of time.

Update...every time there is a new issue, the app wants me to buy it or subscribe. I DID SUBSCRIBE AND THE APP SHOWS ME SIGNED IN! This app is utter trash. Dont waste your time or money.
