Ratings and Reviews
Great reading experience
The print quality and the contents are excellent which is why I bought the app subscription and it did not let me down. The articles have accompanying podcast which is great and I wish they could install this podcast for all articles not just a few in each issue. Also the special issues are great but not as interactive as the regular issues. When you want to download multiple issues simultaneously the queued issues may not sometimes download automatically but this won’t bother you. Overall excellent magazine with good app.
This app is an amazing way to learn history... Even for an American.
I don't live in the UK but I have always been fascinated by European history. I got this app so I can learn in an interesting way and get off social media for a little bit. I would definitely recommend this app to a friend that likes history.
Doesn’t recognize my subscription
I love the magazine and the app works fine for the most part. However, I have automatic renewal and it will not download the issues for 2020. It wants me to buy them, but when I click that, I get the message that I’m not up for renewal until Sept 2020. I’ve clicked “restore purchases” on both my iPhone and iPad and it’s still not recognizing my subscription purchased through the app. It downloaded the new Collector's Edition of Elizabethan Era, but not the regular editions of the history magazine. Please give me the magazines I’m paying for. I gave you a lot of money for all the back issues too. Actually, my iPad issues ended with July 2019, so you owe me more back issues for that
