Digitally distressed...

As previous reviews stated, with the update, back issues were removed and have to be re-uploaded.
Since the 'update' issues are delayed. Issue came available late last month and it is mid-October and still SEPTEMBER is my "current issue". When I wrote pocket mags support their email reply to me was 'we wait for the supplier.'
Feel like the dog chasing it's tail......
UPDATE: digital issues are still delayed. I do not plan to renew.

Pocketmags distributing is horrible.

Ever since Pocketmags has taken over distributing, things have gone straight to hell. Great magazine if we can ever get the issues in a timely manner. It took until last week and me sending multiple emails for them to get me the October issue. I got the September issue before I got the July and August issues. When I emailed them about the missing issues, Pocketmags told me that San Diego magazine had published the September issue right after the June issue. Laughable. When I called them out on this lie, they apologized and restored my issues. San Diego magazine should find a new digital publisher. Or go back to the one you had before. Please.
