How the heck do you download issue?


The updated app instructions indicate that there should be a star that you select to download an entire issue to read offline. The stars only appear for individual articles inside of an issue. I shouldn't have to download each article individually.

*Update* as of July 14, they've fixed the offline magazine glitch

Won't download new issues?


The app will not download the new issue when it comes out. Sometimes it shows up weeks later. What's the problem?

I have asked TS twice and receive only canned answers that do not work.

Yep, still worthless, but hey, I can now Tweet. Who cares?


They have no plan for transitioning print subscribers to digital and I see no signs they care. Why they insist on creating barriers to this change, I'll never understand. The publishing model of designing, printing, and shipping a physical publication is a lot more expensive than the digital alternative. Reducing/eliminating these wasteful practices should be a priority. More digital subscribers, make their digital edition more profitable. Unlike a physical publication where shipping, paper, and printing costs increase for every new subscriber, digital expenses stay fairly constant. The price to create and distribute 1,000 digital copies is the nearly identical to a 1,000,000. What's worse is that the digital subscription price is more than a print subscription! There is no way pushing text and pixels through the Internet costs more than paper, ink, shipping, transportation, warehousing, recycling, and other environmental costs. Their subscriber base is clamoring for this evolution but Runner's World focuses of adding features no one really cares about. Fix the digital subscription business model. We don't care about Facebook OR TWITTER sharing or new icons. Pull your heads out of the sand!
