Finally! Thank you BHG. I had trouble getting it to load also but finally figured it out. I ignored the subscription questions and looked to the right at the sign in. It would not let me use the already a customer so I signed in as a new customer to digital subscription. You have the option of using your name and address if you dont have your account number. It didn't look like it did anything but then I noticed at the top it said sign out so I touched the library button at bottom and it finally showed several grayed out magazine covers and I touched one and it started to download it. It took a very long time to download ( that might have been my wifi but I dont think so) and if I got out of the app for about five or so minutes a screen would pop up saying it was canceling download. Just hit continue and it will take you back in the app and continue. You can get back out again. I hope this helps the people who couldn't get it to work. Good luck!

Was better years ago

Bh&G used to have a better app. This app does not immediately open the magazine to where you left off - you have to click through a few screens to get to where you were. And when paging through the magazine, you often get a blank page and a spinning wheel - even when the magazine has been fully downloaded. The wheel doesn’t go away until you swipe back a few pages. You may get the blank page when you swipe forward again. May need to try a few times.... Good content, the app is just meh.

Best magazine app out there

This was the first magazine (e-zine?) that I downloaded and that was dumb because every other magazine has been such a let down. Better Homes is by far the most interactive, well thought out app of it's kind that I have seen yet. This app really utilizes all the awsomeness that comes from having a tablet. The only two quirks I have found that drove me crazy was;

1: When I opened my September Issue for the first time it opened to a black page. I did not know this and thought the app froze or crashed and re-installed it 3 times before I figured out what was going on. Also you have to tap the very BOTTOM of the screen to get the tool bar to pop up, not just anywhere like other apps.

2: I'm still having problems signing in, and I subscribed through the app. I am guessing because this is a huge known issue that an update is coming soon.

Overall I love it, and would love to see maybe a scrapbook tab similar to Pinterest where you can clip and save your favorite articles from different issues in one place. I also would LOVE a recipe box so I can save and flip through all the yummy recipes, or look for something specific. Also I saw the advertisement for BHG's Celebrate app and went ahead and got it. Best 99 cents I've spent since Angry birds:) I'm excited to see what else BHG will think of. I am hoping that some of the other developers are paying attention and will use this as a "standard" or "basic" model.
