This app should be withdrawn

This is the worst app I have ever tried to use. I am a subscriber and cannot log in to account using this app. The account button is unresponsive. The subscribe button was unresponsive too when I tried to get to my account that way. The buy button however is responsive as I accidentally touched it and I have a charge pending for an issue I already subscribed for. I use an iPad Pro.

App fail, doesn’t recognise purchase

I though I’d try it, bought an issue to support independent media, I was charged, and it went back to having a ’buy’ button, with no way to read the issue. What the hell? Fail at the first hurdle. Tried it from a phone and iPad, doesn’t recognise my purchase. The best content in the world won’t help if you can’t read it.

No Problems

I don't have any problems with the app, I subscribed a few days ago. I've been subscribing to the TSP for over a year and no problems with it too.
