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!

Poor rendering of news articles (free)

Frequently can’t get to the end of reading an article as it doesn’t render (blank area in news article) … think it may be related to all the adverts it’s trying to display! Have latest iPhone pro.

Developer Response ,

Hi Gary,

Thanks for letting us know about this. We'll be looking into the news feed to try and fix this issue. It'd be really helpful if you could contact us on apps@futurenet.com and share some screenshots of the problem, which can help us locate and fix the issue, or offer some advice for your specific issue.

We hope you are enjoying the rest of the app.

All the best.
