So frustrating

This is the ground hog day equivalent for apps. I don't subscribe, but buy the ones i want. Everyday i restore my purchases and down load the issue i'm reading, then the next day I find that all issues have uninstalled themselves and I have to restore my purchases again to re-download the issues. If only i had enough time free to read a whole issue in one go. Such fun

Just another SteveO ,

App is massively frustrating.

This app is just rubbish - I’m thoroughly tired of it ‘queuing’ a download to completely hang. Can’t cancel it, can’t continue it. Only option is to delete the app (and the issues) and re-download and start again.

Sort it out you muppets!

Highly disappointing

I subscribed, however it only let me have one issue despite my paying a reoccuring charge. As in, i paid for the next issue and yet couldnt access it (was asked to pay again). Support on the matter seemed pretty lacking, (what looked like a useful contact email address just gave me an autoresponse pointing to an unhelpful faq page) but I wont kick up a fuss because frankley I dont want to read it anyway. Magazine content was dated, brief, and some of it was written with a horribly annoying egotistical/arrogant tone. Some of it read more like the childish rants of teenage fanboys on a web forum than the work of career journalists. Based on the issue i read, I would avoid even if it were free. Many free tech blogs are more current, offer more detail and are ironically more well written. I'm not sure what you're paying for here, besides a lot of ads.
