Customer Reviews

My favorite news source

I get everything from The Week - different view points from many sources on what's happening around the world, interesting commentary, book reviews I pay attention to, a real estate lust centerfold, a little bit of celebrity gossip, and a final article that's always terrific. (Okay, I open to this first, even though it's in the back.) and I love the online version as well as the paper version. I get and use both, because sometimes I like sitting down with the paper version, but I also love being able to catch up online any time. I see the world from a larger framework because of the different sources, and it's here that I often finally understand what's going on with something in the news that has baffled me. It's an absolute necessity. I'd give it six stars if I could.

Once again the update breaks authorization

Sept 2015 update to this app breaks the authorization. This seems to happen with every update and it takes weeks for it to be fixed. It currently requires me to reauthorize my itunes purchase, tells me I am now authorized for 12 mth subscription then when i try to download the current issue it tells me I am not authorized. I like this magazine but it is not worth the recurring hassle and not worth paying for issues I cannot download. Goodby.
Previous review: But in December it started crashing whenever opened - you could not access any issues. They "fixed" the crash but now on the ipad it doesn't know I have a subscription even though iTunes shows it is active and paid to Jan 2016. I cannot download or view anything. Previously downloaded issues are gone. On the iPhone I can now see and download old issues but the current issue gives an error whenever i try to download it. APPLE I WANT A REFUND. YOU CANNOT CHARGE ME THEN NOT DELIVER.

Great magazine, lousy customer service

I read it cover to cover every week. Informative and entertaining. And the app is great. I usually forego the printed copy to use the app. I wish they would offer an "electronic only" option.

The subscription used to include the electronic version. A few weeks ago, it suddenly was not. The app simply spun the wheel and told me "waiting". They did not condescend to inform me of this new policy. I was overseas at the time and they totally ignored any emails I sent. When I got home and called, they were rude and helpful only grudgingly. I had to forego a three year discounted subscription and pay full price (plus extra for electronic) for a one year only subscription. Very shortsighted on their part.

Like I said: great magazine, great app, lousy support and policies.
