No access to iTunes purchases since new app.
Since updating to the latest app, I no longer have access to my subscription purchased through iTunes! I have restored my iTunes purchases, but that doesn’t work and none of them become available. Hard to believe that an app could be released without checking this!
I contacted customer service last week and reported this issue, but the responses that I got have been largely nothing to do with the problem and of no help at all, it was as if they didn’t even read my emails, just sent standard replied. To repeat, I had no problem with the previous version of the app, since this one came out, even after restoring my iTunes purchases all of the issues covered by my subscription are locked. I have deleted the app, reinstalled and tried again many times. I have paid for my subscription, it is valid through January 2018 and yet I have no access to my issues!
Tried again as I have done everyday so far to restore purchases and today it worked, have access to my subscription again!
Every major update makes it worse
I wish I could roll back to the last iteration of this app. The new one is incredibly slow and clunky. I’m not impressed with the reader mode and it’s annoying that it tries to remind me I can use reader mode on every article. The app seems to get periodic amnesia that I pay for a subscription and needs me to sign in again to download the magazines I want to read. It’s inconsistent in saving my spot if I close an issue wanting to come back to it later. They also did away with bookmarks without warning, so I lost the book reviews list I had kept in the app.
Would love if Time would go back to two versions of this app ago... in 2016, they were creating issues optimized for iPad viewing with digital content. In 2017, I was disappointed that this was done away with, but at least the app was still useable. And now, I’m disappointed with the app altogether.
“New” app is merely a reader view—what?!
Review of Time’s “new” app (11/17)
It took a year for Time to release a new app to replace their PDF magazine view. The only difference is now we can put an article in reader view—a feature available on mobile devices for years. What took so long?! And there’s still no easy scrolling or bonus features. Stop hanging on to your print magazine layout and go back to your fabulous digital app of 2015.
My review from a year ago:
I only read Time on my iPad so I have it wherever I go. Now it's just a worthless PDF of the print version. Photos split across two screens, font too small, no bonus content. I'm so disappointed! And this seems to be the only place for feedback since Time doesn't allow posts on its Facebook or Twitter feeds. The whole digital department must have been let go. Epic Fail
