Authentication rarely works
I’ve downloaded my issues to this app many times. My subscription is good through July 20th. I just got a notification that a new issue was available to read via the Apple push notification. I opened the app and it acts like it never heard of me before. I check that I’m signed in. Yep. I re-enter my subscriber number and last name and it lets me enter a password. I log off and log back in successfully. I still can’t find any of the issues that I’ve downloaded, and all of the issues listed, including the print editions I’ve got right next to me, aren’t accessible. Guess I’ll just wait for my next issue to arrive in the mail. What a waste of their development efforts and a major irritant to their customers.
One thing I find quirky and non-standard is that Cruising World can only be read in the vertical orientation. I subscribe to quite a few digital publications, and this is the only one that does not permit the reader to view it either horizontally or vertically. I prefer the former because I can see more of the layout and then simply zoom in on anything that interests me. This publication, however, can only be viewed one page at a time, and I find this limitation quite annoying.
Caveat: I read the free, sample version so it's possible that the paid version does not contain this limitation. There is a horizontal view example in the "iPad screenshots" sample above. If the paid version offers a choice of orientations, I'd say the digital version of Cruising World is no better or worse than other digital publications.
Most aggravating magazine app ever
I've been a print + digital subscriber for years (and IT person, by the way). It seems as though each time I finally get my account access working in the app, the developer/publisher pushes a new version that (sorry to shout but seriously) BLOWS AWAY THE ISSUES I’VE DOWNLOADED and then sends me down an aggravating rabbit hole of not recognizing me as a subscriber. This just happened again, and that’s it. I’m done. Uninstalled. Bye bye.
