What's New in Version 2.1
Fixed issues relating to iOS 8 upgrade
Buy content / Never get it back
It's quite simple. This is still a company acting like a magazine company. They might ship you a magazine, and you can own that magazine and you can peruse that magazine but at the end of the day they're selling more magazines. The way this app works is that they sell you the app; they sell you the content, you download the app to your device, and you download the content to the app. Once that relationship is over and you are no longer a subscriber, don't expect to be able to keep your content. At all. Whatsoever.
Worse yet, I have bought their swimsuit apps on numerous years and the apps failed to function after two years of usage and when you go to them for help, they're completely clueless and responses are automated and consistently refer back to this app and buying the issues.
So there you have it: this company's customer service borders on criminal activity and is completely unhelpful.
Perfect, I never have enough time to read
This is a great app because I have a whole stack of SIs at home, but never have enough time to read them. I think many people have this same predicament, but this app allows you to read this great magazine anywhere you go. It is not the same as actually flipping the pages, but the navigation of tapping certain sections of the magazine and swiping page to page is ok/feasible. It has some loading problems though, I wish it just automatically downloaded every issue. And finally, why (even after loading and opening it) can't I get to the SI Swimsuit issue!
Good content, lousy app
Despite the high-quality sports coverage and all the other stuff SI does, using this app is a laborious process. I have to reinstall it every few weeks after getting an "Unable to get entitlements response..." error message every time it opens. Stories frequently fail to load; spinning ball of death. And how about a "Back" button? You can't work back up a thread, you have to go back to one of the home pages and follow the thread again. I'm on a 5s, in the room with a fios router.
