The app allows you to see the full content of each issue, with advantages like content search and the ability to zoom in for a detailed look at images. You can also see and hear embedded audio/video clips that directly relate to feature stories and media reviews, plus there’s an interactive advertiser index!

Horrendous app!!

I recently subscribed for 2 years both print & online through the Vintage Guitar web site. I have been a print subscriber to VG for nearly 25 years, & thought a backup copy online would allow me to free up space, etc. I followed all of the online instructions to download the app from the App Store. However, when I try to access my subscription I get an "authentication error". The Vintage Guitar site shows my physical & digital subscriptions as being active through May 2017. I have contacted the designated vendor support for the online version 4 times. I get cut & paste responses that often have missing information & walk me through the same steps that I have unsuccessfully taken numerous times. I have repeatedly informed them that they are the only ones who can fix the authentication errors, but they ignore that.

App consistently crashes

Greetings fellow guitar players,
I really like this magazine. it's awesome but I got to tell you, I have yet to be able to read any of the digital magazines because the application crashes.
Interestingly enough I could not pay for the subscription through the App Store but had pay them directly on their website.
I've contacted them a number of times only to be totally unsatisfied with the way this is all working out. I do have another on online subscription with money magazine. it's flawless so I don't quite understand why this one can't work . but nevertheless I am one unhappy customer don't feel like I got any value for my subscription

Digital Vintage Guitar Magazinre, not worth it

I subscribe to several magazines. I find Vintage Guitar Magazine to be an excellent publication. Still, when magazines produce a digital version of their publication it is usually included with the price of the magazine subscription such as Smithsonian or National Geographic. Vintage Guitar Magazinre has three subscription prices, one for the magazine, one for the digital subscription and one discounted price for both. It seems unfair to have to pay for both. I am dumping this app.
