Great App,Place For Reviews,Not Complaining About Politics!


I'm not sure why so many people are dissatisfied with this app. It's great and it gives me access to the magazine on the go. I also love that the newest issue shows up days before it hits the newsstands, or in my case, my mailbox. Seems like a lot of whining about simple things that I obviously don't have an issue with. Don't see any issues with app itself as far as complicated usage or print size. Increase your font in the settings and see if that helps. Very pleased with ability and convenience to have Time Magazine access on the go. If you're having issues getting the app to work, call Time as their Customer Service is great and very helpful before leaving a bad review. I had an issue getting the app to work. Called customer support and problem was solved in minutes. Also, what device are you viewing this app on, iPad, iPad mini, or iPhone?

A review is not the place to complain about political ideology or complain about an article that you don't like. Instead of leaving a bad review, get a Twitter to complain.

I've been duped...RIP TIME Magazine


I have subscribed to TIME's print edition continuously since the early 1980s. When I began traveling full-time last year, I was excited to switch to the iPad version. For six months, it was a beautifully executed electronic version of the magazine, well-adapted to tablet viewing. Not only was the layout optimized for iPad, but there was also deep interactive content in the magazine itself, as well as bonus digital content at the end. Then, suddenly and without warning, in December, all of that vanished. The iPad version is now essentially just a PDF of the print magazine pages. Among other things, this means that the font went from two columns of type in an easily readable size, to three columns of type in tiny letters that this mid-50s reader can barely see even with reading glasses. All of the optimizations for tablet viewing are gone. It is, in short, unusable, and completely different from what I subscribed to. I feel like I've been duped. I'm so incredibly disappointed, because of my long-standing respect for TIME and its journalism, but I'll no longer be a subscriber.

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!
