The Costco Connection is the monthly magazine published for the members of Costco Wholesale and for others curious about the world of Costco. It is the largest-circulation monthly magazine in the United States, with more than 8.6 million recipients. The Connection features timely articles on food, health, books, technology, travel, personal finance and small business. Columnists include Suze Orman, Wally “Famous” Amos and small business expert Rhonda Abrams. A typical reader comment: “I regularly receive a number of ‘magazines’ from entities that I receive services from. Among others, this includes Costco, AARP, my homeowners association, my college alumnae office, my car manufacturer and my HMO. The only one I read in any depth is The Costco Connection.”

What's New in Version 33
Bug Fixes and Performance Enhancements
I actually find many of the articles in Costco's magazine quite interesting; they're kept short and informative.
As for this app, I dont see some of the issues other folks complained about - the current issue was right there, and I was offered a free subscription so I assume that it will download the next issues when they are available.
I don't quite get why there are two ways of presenting the material though - a scan of the magazine and a ad-less page per article (where btw. the text size function appears to be inoperative). Why not have just one PDF-based (i.e. fully text searchable) version that looks the same as the magazine? I also think that a nice touch up would be a page turn effect which I have seen in other e-book/magazine apps.
But by and large this app works for me, and it's free content so I'm not complaining, only suggesting.
It's May 19th. Where is the May issue? I'd like to see current feature items.
iPad app ?
Even tho it says it has an iPad version, all I get is the iPhone version. Fix please!
