Works Great

The app works perfectly, it’s easy to use and I love the fact that we can change font size, background colors and more with the app.

I wish that account information was universal, as in I shouldn’t have to make a different account for the app so that I could access my paid for subscription to magazines.

I would like it if all articles could be loaded on the app as well. It would make the explore much fuller and easier to read articles published daily.

Can't get Spring of 2020 mag.

I have been using 'Popular Science' on my old iPad for a few years now. There were problems every so often but restoring my Apple account would correct those problems. You see my subscription is through Apple. And this time restoring didn't work. I can't get the 2020 Spring edition. My subscription is yearly and already payed for this year. Please fix this problem or cancel my subscription and give me back my money.

Bad App

I have a paid subscription, am signed in, am looking at current print copy, but the app won’t let me look at current issue without buying it...somebody goofed on this implementation!
