Customer Reviews

Back issues back, but...

Other reviews for this version mention that you can't download back issues, even with a subscription. This looks like it's been silently fixed. There's still some interface downgrades in this 'upgrade,' however. Most notably if you read part of an article then start another, it forgets your place in the first one. Similarly, the ToC at the top forgets your place.

Terrible new version

Everything that made the old version good and useful is now gone. Not sure who made the old version, but this new version is absolutely terrible. Aside from the now corrected issue with all back issues being unavailable, it looses a whole host of features, and yet, despite the iPad Pro being out for over a year, it still does not support the iPad Pro 12" features.

Not sure what prompted this move, but please go back to the old version, this one is a subscription cancelling downgrade.

Do not purchase digital SOS magazines

I have had a digital subscription for the last three years in an effort to cut down on the bulk of physical issues. Despite assurances on the website that I could access/download my purchased issues at anytime (and SOS's inane reluctance to allow paid subscribers to save purchased digital issues on their computer), I can no longer access any of my purchased issues before Jan 2016. Do not download this app or make any purchases until this is rectified.
