Customer Reviews

Works great now

I had no problems with app on my iPhone up until the update but, I'll be honest, I was too busy over the holidays to download the new issues. When I got my iPad last week I went to catch up and found out my sign in 'wasn't authorized' to see the digital issues. After a quick email to the magazine, situation resolved. Now that it works I'm pretty happy!

Great content - So-so app - Bad attitude of Time, inc. IT

Subscribed to this and Sunset. Sunset worked great..then NOT.

Called and told .."Well, you only pay for content..we determine how to present it"

And went on to describe that they are going to generic PDF format for all mags...1 size fits all.

They have determined that previous method (having links available for touch as well as tabs' took too much work"

When asked about taking away functionality without notice (wasting my time trying to make what once worked happen)
"We can't be bothered to notify users of changes and Apple won't let us anyway"

I guess customers be damned...what a great paradigm for business today.

Great magazine, Good app, small complaint

I love RS magazine. I enjoy reading it on my iPad. My complaint, and I realize it's a bit silly, is the icon.

My newsstand icon will not update ever since the special weddings issue came out.

I like seeing the most current issue when I look at my newsstand main page. No other magazine does this just Real Simple. I emailed the magazine, and they said it was a problem with the app and they couldn't fix it.

No biggie, I'll keep reading it. If they could fix the thumbnail, it would get 5 stars.
