A pain to log in but ok otherwise

I had trouble logging in like everyone else. I already have a subscription through the mail. After numerous failed attempts, I finally clicked on the "Account" button on the bottom of the screen. From there I clicked "Get Started" and entered my login info again, and it finally recognized me. I had to enter my account number to verify, but it worked! What I really like is that I have the option to download past issues. I look forward to having a few issues to flip through wherever I am!

Fantastic added value, well-done app

I bought the print version of parents magazine when our daughter turned 1. It was a great deal. I expected to like it and find it useful, but it has greatly exceeded my expectations. Each issue I find a few articles worth the entire subscription price.

Just got an iPad and I was itching to try the app which they state in the print version is free. WOW! I was not expecting the app version to be this good. It is utterly charming. Easy to navigate, great image quality, and unexpected pages that come alive with video. The covers but also I was just in the October 11 issue and the Halloween house came alive.

Here is how I got it to synch with my print account. I choose the enter address info. I then had to choose send me a password. They did instantly, put that in and was pleased to see back issues at least as far as I remember my print issues going. One time the app got stuck on a page. I choose page view from the handy bar on the bottom and got past that page. Fantastic added value. Thanks Parents mag.

I made the mistake of not reading the other reviews before I purchased this app and it's a mistake I won't make again! I bought the year subscription on my iPad - I was never a print subscriber. Well, on the "store" page it says I have purchased the subscription and to go to my library to access the magazine. But when I do so, my library is totally empty. I tried signing in to see if that would work - it says that I am signed in, but still nothing appears in my library. I tried to reboot my iPad to see if that would work - nothing. I haven't tried to contact anyone about this problem, but from the sounds of it, I'm not going to get any satisfaction by going that route! I would NOT recommend this app to anyone and only wish I'd taken the time to read the reviews beforehand - I'd be $10 richer and definitely not so angry! Someone, anyone, please fix these problems!!!!
