A bit clumsy despite regular updates

Used to buy the paper version of the magazine but the digital version gives me more content for less money, however over the past 12 months it’s been notoriously unstable to try and open and use (and all apps and operating systems are kept up to date). Just wish it would be a bit less flaky would have got 5 stars if it was less problematic.

A downward turn for Newsstand apps

Having been a subscriber to MBUK for several month using the old app, I had my share of "failed to open" moments. I was semi-pleased when Immediate Media (the brains behind a number of other prominent newsstand apps) took hold of MBUK, thinking that as a seasoned developer/publisher for the platform (which is no spring chicken itself) they must have a bulletproof system for deploying the "glorified pdf" version of the magazine. Unlike some other users I managed to transfer my old purchases from my previous subscription purchases (added a star for that), I can even read them consistently (which the old app couldn't always manage). The new app however torments me with new issues which I cannot download, long after the print version has hit the shelf. I struggle to see why I cannot have either an error message or a paid for issue of the magazine. A sad day for the worlds longest running, most widely read mountain bike magazine.

Broken App after iOS13

App won’t download mags after updating to the supposedly iOS 13 compatible version. Download gets to 37% then app crashes. Tried iPad recycle and app delete followed by reload but no change. Must admit I’m not at all surprised it’s broken as this has been by far the worst cycling mag app (I use many!) for several years, let alone expecting the developer to be able to cope with an iOS update. Hope a fix comes quick or I’ll be cancelling my subscription.

Developer Response ,

Hi 102gr4,

We refgret that there was a corrupt file in the October 2019 issue that was causing the app to crash. However,this has now been fixed and the app should work as expected.
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by this.
