Previously bought special editions not supported
With the special editions app no longer supported, I was very disappointed that all the magazines I bought through it were not ported over to this app. Not going to buy them again. Contacted the support email address and never heard back.
Excellent app and magazine but…
Love SFX and highly recommend it.
Always strong content and beautifully put together.
App is okay but has three major issues:
1) restoring previous purchases after a device change is hugely frustrating
2) does not support the full real estate of the iPhone Xs Max
3) Does not include the free gifts given with the print edition
