It got worse-Update!

Newsweek: you have redeemed yourselves. The new version of the app is a vast improvement! Congratulations. I am back to reading every week thanks to my ability to easily access issues. What's more, this is an actual app as opposed to the previous PDF download. Thank you.

Newsweek: you're losing me in so many different ways. I've been loyal for a long time (since I was a kid watching my dad read you) through your various editorial iterations, some good, some not so good. The current version is not so good, but I appreciate the effort to reinvent. Now it seems you are actively trying to prevent me from being a reader. I bought a year subscription, but your app never remembers that I'm a subscriber. Right now I don't even have the option of doing the stupid email reset. Please fix this mess of an app. There are so many other options out there that it's not worth it anymore to come to you.

Disappointed and frustrated

This new app does not work for me. I have tried restarting my iPad, performing a forced restart and even deleting the app and downloading again. And yet I still cannot access any of the issues. Newsweek needs to fix this problem.
I have been using the Newsweek app update (6.0.1) for a few weeks. It still stinks. How can Newsweek say this is an update? It takes a long time for EACH page to load. In the past, an entire issue could be downloaded in the same amount of time it now takes to load one short article. I will not renew my subscription if this problem is not fixed.
Another update:
I downloaded the latest Newsweek app update (Version 7.0.0) and I must say that I believe you got it right this time. An entire issue can now be downloaded quickly. Thanks for correcting the previous horrible app.

Horrible tech support

Don't start a digital subscription w Newsweek! At least until they sort this out.
After 1.5 yrs of digital subscription w minor issues, I encountered the problem tt most reviewers of this app encountered - the app won't recognize my subscription so I can't download new issues. What made matters worse was when I tried getting help from the Newsweek app support staff, they referred me to the iTunes support staff. Something about them (Newsweek) not having access to my iTunes account details and hence they cannot determine if I am a Newsweek subscriber. And iTunes staff reiterating that the issue is with the app developer, not them! I felt like a ping pong ball in a game. Back and forth we will email with me getting more exasperated and angry.
In the end, iTunes/Apple support won my admiration for 1-being courteous the whole time, 2- emailing me to ask if there is still a problem and finally 3-partially refunding my subscription when they realize this situation is going nowhere. Newsweek support just stuck to their spiel (did the guy even read subsequent replies?) and eventually replying in CAPS the same spiel as if I could not READ and understand them. Hey, I can read just fine but you need help in communication and customer service. Mind you, the refund fr iTunes didn't cover all the issues I will never get to read. So folks, subscribing here is a money losing venture. Stick to the hard copies folks.
