Active subscriptions work again!

Thanks for updating the app so I can read all of my issues again. Looking forward to additional features in the works.

Problems with functionality and customer service.

The app wants to charge me for issues even though I’m a subscriber. In the past week I’ve contacted the company three times, asking for tech support. Today I contacted them again asking for a refund since they seem to have no intention of supplying the service I paid for.

Update: It took my reaching out to the company via PayPal, but the app is working for me now. So I’ve updated my rating from 1 to 3 stars. The magazine is great, but the company should have been more responsive to my earlier requests for help.

Best Way to learn and enjoy Japanese

I’ve used everything and am at about the N1 level. I’ve used this magazine before digital was even available. I look forward to every month’s issue. Great materials from beginning level to native. I love it.
