Subscription not for customer but for their's

Multiple times trying to restore purchased articles and, even emailed PM for my paid magazines. The reply I get try to restore again. I'm tired of this b.......t. I also found that their are a couple more that do the same ripping off subscriber's. I'm dropping mostly all of my renewals. No more headaches and, yes backup whatever is left of your magazines. Hopefully when they lose enough customers they'll do the right thing to the new and former subscribers .


Decided to give this a spin after seeing them on Adafruit Ask An Engineer show... Used to love this mag. Ask in the day...

What a nightmare.... Down, subscribe and download and CRASH...delete, restore and CRASH... And not just the app, my whole iPad...

The whole idea with App Store is supposed to be about not letting junk like this out there!

2 days and I've yet to actually be able to read the Mag.... Avoid this at all costs... At least I'm only out for one month... Logging in to cancel.

Great thought...

Purchased this in August as an annual subscription. It seemed flawless, until September when I had to restore my purchase. Again in October and in November I lost the option. I could not get new issues without purchasing each one or buying a new subscription. I am very disappointed.
