A good electronic version

I'm astonished to read the amount of reviews from people slagging the magazine off because of the subscription fee...! It says in the description how much each mag is, and it's about 40% cheaper than the paper copy! Of course it's not going to be free - who would buy the paper version if it was?!?!?! Daft. Anyway, I'd recommend the electronic version - after years of buying the paper one, reading it, then not knowing what to do with it afterwards (and eventually just putting it with all the other old magazines I can't bring myself to throw away), at least electronically you can store it neatly on your iPad and go back to it when ever you want. If you're not happy with buying 12 months, how about just 1 issue and see how you get on with it!

Worst app I have ever had the misfortune of installing on my iPad. Unable to log in after 3 months of subscribing. Contacted customer support, got answers to questions I never asked, got lied to on the telephone from customer support, and also, the odd email I get from them repeatedly asks me to describe the problem I’m having. You really are a complete useless bunch of retards at magazines direct!

Contacted credit card with relevant information as I’m paying for a service that isn’t being provided, so want my money back. Just look at the more recent reviews of this app, (something I wish I had done before subscribing.) KEEP WELL AWAY FROM THIS APP!

App is broken 😕

Following the recent update, it is not possible to view any of the editions I have paid for. There is no option to restore purchases. Basically it’s useless. Will now be unsubscribing from the digital edition.
