Update makes it even worse than before

On iPad Air 2 iOS 13.3, after this new update the app runs sluggish as hell! Also I can no longer read any of my past purchases. There’s no option to restore past purchases, and the UI is confusing and not intuitive even if it was running smoothly, basically make deleted all my purchases and now wants me to pay for them again if I want to view them

Vastly improved app. Works great so far.

I was literally in the process of writing a 1 Star review and getting ready to cancel my subscription, but when I opened the App Store I noticed that (finally) there was an update to the Make reader application just 15 hours old. I’m not kidding. The old app was terrible. I had just opened the old app and it took over 2 MINUTES to “Verify my subscription” — during which time I couldn’t even read issues I had already downloaded. Talk about a terrible end-user experience. After two years without an update, I had given up hope that the situation would ever be fixed.

But I’m extremely happy to be proven wrong. The new app is like night and day. Reading and navigation on the old app was alway pretty decent (after the interminable opening wait time) and the new app retains some similar functionality but is even better. You can still read in the traditional “magazine” layout style or you can now read with a more free form “web style” interface. Most importantly, it is FAST. No long opening delay, and you don’t even have to download your issue before you can start reading. You still can download purchased issues if desired (which I’m guessing is for access even when not connected to the internet) but there seems to be no requirement to do so.

Anyhow, I’m (finally) a happy camper. I’ve always enjoyed the “Make” content and I really wanted to support the whole ethos and ecosystem, but it was becoming increasingly difficult to ignore such bad design and apparent indifference to the customer. Now, I no longer have to.

New update prevents ITunes users from using

I have called Make and they say call apple. I call apple and they confirm problem is on Make App side. Make customer service is horrible. Make magazine has good content but not worth my time.
