App is Glitchy

When it works, the app is ok. However I frequently have trouble downloading content. The app acts as though I don’t have a subscription and requires me to purchase individual editions, even though my digital subscription is still active and not expired. On multiple occasions I had to reach out to technical support. And tech support is glitchy too. Depending on how you contact tech support (through the app or the website), your request will go to one of three or so different support entities all based out of the U.K. And they’ll suggest things to try, none of which work, and you’ll need to put up with it for two weeks trying hopeless solutions before someone in tech support finally understands what you’re having an issue with and fixes the problem. Argh.

App no longer works right

For some time now every time I try to get the latest issue, the system tries to charge me for a single issue - even though I have an annual subscription...( and indicates so at the top of my library) To get the latest issue, I have to uninstall and reinstall the app, then restore my purchases, then download the issue - EVERY time. Tried contacting the publisher (at several of their US offices) and have never received a response back or gotten someone on the phone. This mag/app should be pulled from the store until it’s fixed. This situation is totally unacceptable. iTunes Store support “can’t” help either, according to them.

Annoying subscription reset

I love the mag, but this app wants me to cancel and carry around paper copies. Or cancel all together. It constantly resets my subscription and I have to download my issues all over again. I've been reading for almost 30 years, so I love the mag...but at this point I'd almost rather wait for it in the mail. Last "special issue" was articles from last 5 months...worthless.
Update: Now it charges me when a new issue comes out even though I'm paying for a subscription. got me to unsubscribe after 20+ years with this magazine.
