Read the fine print

This app started acting up a few weeks ago asking for my email addy then never being able to connect because their servers are down. And even though I had paid for a years subscription I could gain access or contact info. Stores have the latest April issue but not the app. Finally got further today only to have to agree to terms of service which I was surprised to find hidden within that you agree that you know they provide NO service for this app!!??? Lesson learned and now passing it on to those who might waste money here. Buy the printed magazine. Do Not waste money here.

No support, access or ISSUES

I cannot access previous purchases using restore purchases feature. Contacted support multiple times - no reply EVER. Most recent issue is FEB 2020 - I renewed in May 2020 - it is now October so what is my $$$ buying - air.... Extremely disappointed.

UPDATE: I never received a reply from app “people” but I sent a complaint email to Crochet World publishers through Annie’s. I basically stated that this app was destroying their good name. Within a week - everything was working and all issues were available. Crochet World is AWESOME - because of that I am going from 1 to 3 stars - because they still need to find a new partner digital.

Also Frustrated

I have been getting my issues of Crochet World through this app for a couple years now and loved it. Since the update on October 28, 2016 the app won't work properly. You might get it to open once and view an issue but after that it won't let you see any of your issues. I tried getting support from the website for the developer over a week ago and have had no response. I could have had the paper copies and the digital versions if I had just used the money I spent for a subscription through the Crochet World website! 😤😤
