Ratings and Reviews
Subscription access mistake now fixed
I have a one year iTunes subscription to New Daylight, purchased in March 2019. I noticed some time ago that the readings after 31st December (“this is the last reading” message) were not available. “ Restore existing subscription” confirmed that my subscription was to last until 18 March 2020 and that restore was complete but still no access to readings for January. My attempt to renew for a further year until March 2021 did not work but thankfully no payment has been taken.
I notice that other reviewers have complained of the same problem this week and that Aimer media have now made a software correction to address the issue. I can now access the 2020 issues and the expiry date is correctly shown as March 2020.
I am grateful to the developer for their response.
I have amended my rate to three stars. Will review the rating and decision to renew when the present subscription expires. Have used the app for quite a few years and before that bought the hard copy for more than 20 years.
Developer Response ,
We are sorry for the problem with the subscription you had. There was an issue pushing the new material to the app. It should be fixed now. Please get in touch if not.
Good but not good enough
Great idea but so much from the printed version is missing so that it cannot replace it thus one needs two subscriptions. BRF how about including all the stuff in the mag the I'd subscribe.
Easier than a book! No, it is not! A book you can share..
We've been reading New Daylight for approx 20 years. As books that we could share with each other and then talk about it.
Now it's all Digital last year my husband could read it on his iPad and I could for 2 weeks then it would disappear.
On 1st April this year I paid for a years Contact but can my husband read it? No as this app is not free to share - God's word Not free to share! Even though we have Family Sharing on both iPad.
Why should we have to pay £21 per year just because it will not allow us to share.
Finally, The content of the writers some are not as good as in previous years. Let's honour all the seasons of the Bible throughout the year at the correct time. A good Christian writer or Preacher can always find something new to say about the big and little events and words in the Bible. We've heard a wonderful teacher, preacher, Reverend give a heart touching sermon on the shortest verse in the Bible 'Jesus wept.'
