Customer Reviews

Absolutely horrible

Downloaded current edition which included stories written a month ago. Settings button requires Facebook login which then doesn't work. Canceling subscription required going back to itunes app download page, which I had to figure out for myself. A complete waste of time and money.

Price increase

The price for a 6 month subscription is going from 30 bucks to $170, and while I don't object to a price increase over time, such an extreme increase is absurd. I won't be renewing my subscription.

This is fraud!

Outdated stories populate home page for days, app is clumsy, broken, one can't navigate back from stories to sections. Whoever developed this is stealing money. I had to go back to iTunes to cancel my subscription.
