Complete your collection

I’m invited to complete my collection for a fee but as I took the same offer some years ago to fill some gaps in my subscriptions, AppStore/GI tell me I’ve already purchased it, but this is a new request! Apple Support have been unable to resolve issue and so here I am asking the developers... please. Cheers

Incredibly disappointed in the way it looks

This app makes a beautiful magazine look like a website or blog and it’s very disappointing. I tried a sample on the kindle app on my iPad and it looked great, like turning the pages of the mag, and I could still zoom in etc. So I downloaded the official Gardens Illustrated app and purchased a subscription through it, thinking it would be the same and it’s definitely not. Text is typeset separately to the images and you have to scroll down like a blog. I’m over looking at blogs, I wanted a magazine but without the storage issues, as I’d like to keep it for reference. Am I getting a setting or preference wrong or the app? I’d really like it to look like the sample I saw.

Great magazine

Have been a subscriber for several years great to be able to store favourite magazine and access whenever I want. Had initial hiccups but think this was due to Apple upgrade but not had any other problems with accessing magazine
