App is quirky

Below is a review I wrote about 2 years ago. I still have problems with the app not retaining my subscription information.
-—
Seems like both the website and the iPad app have had problems for a couple of years that have not been addressed. I got an e-mail verifying my renewal today that contained a link to my subscription. Using that link, I got a page that said, "We have moved," and gave another link to get to the magazine. Since SciAm just sent me that link, why haven't they updated it to take me to the address that they've move to? Additionally, on the iPad app, I have to re-registered my subscription if I have accessed it for a few weeks. After I do that, I have access to the digital issues, but I don't understand why I have to keep re-registering. This annoying problem has been true for previous versions of the iPad app. Despite these problems, I think the SciAm content is great and it has kept me as a long-term subscriber.

Great content but not the app

Love the content in general. However the app is problematic: recurrent problem over several iOS and different iPhones, I have to delete the app every month for my account to recognize my subscription. “Restore subscription” never works. Otherwise love the content and will keep the subscription despite the monthly hassle!
Update:
Looks like above issue was fixed. Also, the app stays at the exact page where I left it when I come back to the app after closing it (used to take me to the home page). 5 stars!
Thanks

SA apparently needs to get rid of some subscribers

I won't rehash what review after review has said. Something is wrong in the way the app logs people in and keeps track of subscriptions. I read all of my publications on an iPad and with SA I spend most of my time trying to access the magazine rather than reading it. This has been an ongoing problem for a couple of years in various forms. I have subscribed since 1965 and I love the articles but I don't have the time to deal with the app - so I'm done at the end of my current subscription.
