Most recent review is I’ve 8ys ago?

It’s a decent magazine, and a fun read, but the app is really...whimsical?....could be much better, and seems like it is not well thought out. Why can’t you just download the PDF version?

OK, the price is high, but the actual App is great!

I just wanted to chime in and give a 5 star review to offset somewhat all the 1 star reviews based on price alone. I almost passed on even considering this app because of the relatively low user rating. Thankfully I read through the reviews, and saw while most agree it's a bit expensive, the actually app is great. I installed and downloaded the last 2 issues. I gotta say after the initial getting use to the interface, I really love this format. When I show off the iPad, this is one of the apps I use. And after reading through the first issue, I'm hooked.

So yes, while each issue is expensive for now, I'm hopeful the price will come down in time as more people start buying. I hope they can make this work, because I really love the format and it presents the content beautifully! For now I'll just wait until the previous month drops in price, and cross my fingers they come out with some lower cost yearly subscription.

One suggestion though, make any URL's listed active. You can't click on the link, and there's no way to copy and past it either.

Can’t download subscription

Paid for subscription years ago and never had issues. Subscription renewed in March this year and it will not recognize the purchase. Restore purchases does nothing. App just hangs. Deleted app, reinstalled and same thing. Cancelled subscription. Would like to get a refund but know how that will go. Don’t waste your money.
