When I originally purchased the print + digital subscription I could download read and keep all my issues. After having to update app I find I can no longer access my old issues that I bought and paid for. Why do I have to buy again? Stay away from this publisher they change the rules after they get you money!!! I have cancelled my subscription and will advise anyone else to stay away. Apple should investigate this company and remove it from iTunes.
