I know print media companies are struggling these days and I tried to support these guys but this is ridiculous. I’ve had this app for several years and have paid for many articles that are now completely inaccessible. It appears that the developer has no Interest in fixing it. I’ll chock up my losses and if I want to see builds of models or find modeling tips I guess I’ll just have to use the internet...for free. I don’t know what I’ll do without being spammed on every other page with advertisements. Which ironically is why I thought you “pay” for a subscription to begin with, so as to avoid all the ads. These guys want the best of both worlds, my dollars and advertising dollars. Then not to even support the app that I have to pay for every month??? Yeah, I can see these guys going the way of the dinosaurs and it’s been a long time coming.

Doesn't work and publisher claims nothing is wrong.

Since the update I've not been able to do anything with the app. Removing and reinstalling does not work, restoring purchases does not work, login does not work. I can get as far as the loading screen (the P51 model) and watch a little spinning thing spin. I have been going back and forth with the publisher who has gone back and forth with the developer who claims nothing is broken. This will be my last subscription with Kalmbach.

Latest update

Will not recognize that I’m subscribed till November 2018. Wants me to buy the issues individually. Impossible to get help from Kalmbach and Apple help is a maze that I haven’t figured out. So they got my $39 and I have nothing in return.

Oh and this very funny and I bet the idiots in IT are still laughing about this one but if you try to go APP Support you get the 404 Page not found message. Very funny Apple IT.

Sept 2019
Again nothing works and I can’t access any of my past issues. They want me to log in with my email or user name. They will not recognize any of my email addresses as being valid. Still no help. Kalmbach still blames Apple and Apple has no support. Everyone just takes your money and then gives you the finger
