Ratings and Reviews
Nice app - clunky for current subscribers
I am a print subscriber and was also very frustrated that I had to purchase a digital subscription. I did discover that Rolling Stone refunds the unused portion of your print subscription so I canceled that online and subscribed digitally in-app. This took a leap of faith (and will result in a one issue overlap) but it is not as dire as I first thought. I subscribe to other magazines that require that I receive the paper copy and, personally, that is more annoying to me than just getting digital alone. If you do want both for one price then, yes, this model is annoying. Arguably, Rolling Stone should make it easier on current print subscribers to evaluate the digital version (with at least a few free issues and an option to make the switch in-app). Despite a slightly broken purchase model that risks frustrating their most loyal current subscribers, the app itself is nice and the magazine 'pops' on the iPad. I couldn't read the print version without the iPad handy for looking up music and videos as I read. The digital version allows me to enjoy the read without balancing a magazine on one knee and the iPad on another. Snippets of music and links to more info on the RS website make digging deeper even easier. If you are willing to go all digital and don't mind the hassle of canceling online, I would recommend the app. Rolling Stones subject matter lends itself very well to a more interactive digital experience.
Absolutely terrible customer service. I didn’t receive my new issue physically or online and they sorry we’ll extend your subscription one month. I haven’t missed an issue of Rolling Stone in decades and their reaction is meh. I don’t know what ever happened to one of the most iconic publications of all time but evidently they could care less
I find myself restoring my account EVERY TIME I open the app.
