Unable to download latest issue. App has a bug that prevents login for Apple subscription. Poor service to resolve issue.

To everyone, please aware that you only purchase a Preview version of April from what it says "if your purchase the magazine the first time", or you can think of you are purchasing the June issue from what it says "June issue is included". So, you are not getting 2 full issues as what I was interrupt when I click purchase.

To the company, I do purchase other electronic magazines and they are very clear and simple to list either purchase single issue or yearly subscription or just a free sample to try. I feel it is misleading and please be aware how you are trying to sell. A bad reputation can spread quickly through the Internet nowadays. Hope I will enjoy the June issue and looking forward the reasonable and clarity annual subscription price.

Added: After reading my issue, I find the content is so little and not rich at all. I wouldn't suggest to anyone for spending $5 on this.

Looks cool

Cool as a show off what iPad can do app. Hard to read and a rip-off per issue price. $14.99 gets you print copy. Print media does not learn ever. If price of shipped mag for the year is $14.99 I rather kill a tree. Greed is the factor over priced but worth the one time buy to show how cool the iPad is. This is my first and last digital copy of popsci.
