CURRENT APP USERS: Once you install the latest version of the WIRED app and accept an upgrade to iOS 5, the WIRED icon on your iPad will disappear— you’ll now find WIRED in your Newsstand folder. Tap the image of our cover to read the latest issue and access your library. If you choose not to do both of these actions, the WIRED icon will remain on your device and the app will remain accessible through it. In addition, to take advantage of having the latest issue automatically downloaded on to your device, go into your Settings on your iPad, select “Store” and turn on the automatic download switch for the WIRED app.
SUBSCRIBERS’ AUTOMATIC-RENEWAL FEATURE: Your subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Your iTunes account will automatically be charged at the same price for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period (another year for annual subscribers, another month for monthly subscribers) unless you change your subscription preferences in your account settings. You can manage your subscriptions through your Account Settings after purchase. No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during active subscription period.

Downloading is a Frustrating Experience
I love the content of Wired Magazine, but this app is a pain. It won't automatically download monthly editions and even when you try to manually download them, the app must remain open the whole time. So if you have a auto lock turned on, you're gonna have a bad time. You just have to sit there and wait for 15 to 30 minutes, keeping the device awake and not using any other apps. What it should do is, if it's plugged in and charging, and connected to WiFi, automatically download the newest edition. Maybe this is a limitation set by Apple, but regardless, it creates a less than satisfactory experience. The end result is I never read the magazine because I don't want to wait for it to download. So my subscription ends up being a waste of money.
terrible -- Conde Nast, please fire someone
Absolutely pathetic. After 20 minutes of trying to set this up I still can't get it to work. Had to change my password -- the website allows a 5 character password but the app requires 6 characters. So I went to the website to change the password, waited 5 minutes for their ridiculously slow server to record the change. Then went back to the ipad app, several times, to try to log in and it still won't let me log in. Also, the instructions on the website for ipad access are wrong and out of date. It says to press "all access" but there is no "all access" tab that I can find. Recommend that someone at Wired take a look at how the Economist does it -- very easy to set up. Next, recommend firing the team responsible for this idiocy. You are supposed to be the premier technology magazine and you can't figure out how to make an IPad app. Pathetic and embarrassing.
good and bad
my first experience with the app was that it was amazing. The different layouts and navigation along with the interactive parts of articles were great. But reviews are right - downloads take a long time. There are definitely times were I cannot quite get it to do what I want. The last couple times I have taken the time to read the magazine I was underwhelmed by the articles and the layout in the app (seemed like all were really short and missing the big idea). Bottom line is I don't really have time to read the magazine and the content and design have become resistible and I hardly even think to read so I am canceling my subscription - if I can figure out how.
