The app

I love the Simply Knitting magazine, (that deserves 5 stars in my opinion, but the app I have to give a 1) and have been buying them for about 5 years. I have a subscription but just decided to download the app. It makes it so much easier to buy back copies, but, I paid 5.99 to download an issue that I missed and it let me look through it once and now it just stays at 0%. It won’t open for me again. I even restarted my phone. I would really love to be able to read the issue I just spent money on, if someone would let me know how to fix it. Or if it’s a “bug” fix it. I would gladly give this app a 5 if this is fixed.

Developer Response ,

Hi 1473520,

We are very sorry that you are having problems with the app. We have a major update planned for Nov 1 this year. It will essentially be a completely new app, eliminating many annoying little bugs including the 0% bug you are experiencing.
In the meantime, you can get around this by archiving and re-downloading the affected issues.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience.


Magazine rating

I’ve had this magazine for a year and have yet to find anything I wanted to knit or even save. My other complaint is that I cannot unsubscribe. I’m guessing that will trigger a bill. Please, let me out of this.
