Excellent magazine and app

One of the best magazines I've ever read. I've been very reluctant to get the app but when I found out I failed to renew my print subscription within the required time frame I found myself at a loss waiting for my magazine to come again. So I got the app and I actually think I like it better. I don't have to wait for the magazine to come in the mail. App is excellent. The bookmarks were a little challenging to find and figure out how to use but other than that it's great!

This app turned me off of RD

I used to love this app. But, some changes recently have been super annoying. The app will not always save your place, even if you don’t completely close the app. Then to make matters worse, there is no longer a way to scroll through the entire issue, so you have to turn pages one by one until getting back to where you left off. But the back-breaking straw is that I recently was charged for an automatic renewal through Apple but was not able to get the app to sync to my Apple account. The online chat help button doesn’t work and Calling RD was no help...I was told it’s an Apple issue even though I tried explaining that the issue was the flaky app itself. (Deleting and reinstalling did not help). Apple wasn’t able to help because the issue was within the app which is not an Apple product. Duh. But, Apple was able to refund the renewal charge and cancel my account. So...App deleted. Rant over. I’ll read something else.

No Support At All

I loved this app when it worked. But they did something to change to “article based”. Suddenly, all my downloaded issues disappeared. Everything appeared with a price. Apple says my subscription is fine, I need to contact the App developers. The number for help provided on the app is geared to print subscribers. They can’t even understand the issue. They send you to a website to register, which is also for print subscribers, NOT for people who pay for the app. I’ve called them twice — zero understanding of the issue. I sent an email to the address provided in the app. It’s been a week — no response. I’ve deleted and re-downloaded the app twice, done everything I can think of. And there is nowhere to go for help! Nothing is worth this amount of frustration!!!! So very disappointing!
