Do yourself a favor and don't bother with this one.
No one seems to know how this app works. Neither Smithsonian or iTunes have any idea how to support this as an iTunes subscription.
I was very patient and called Smithsonian first (from the number listed in the apop FAQ). They were a little rude and very quick to point out that they "had no record of my purchase." What they meant was that iTunes doesn't share purchase verifications with them, so they couldn't do much, but they gave me some general help with the app. No avail.
Next I called iTunes support. After bouncing from one person to another, I was helped by a very polite young man who kindly informed me that he had no idea how to fix it. He escalated and second level told him to tell me to contact the app developer and also (since they probably knew that was going to get us nowhere fast) to offer me a refund. Bummer.
So now I guess I have to subscribe to the print edition to get the digital. At least, I hope that works, but I'll have the print ed as a backup. Somewhere there is a project manager who needs to get his act together. Seriously.
As others note, you can't activate your account, so this is worthless! Time to cancel print sub as well
Tried to contact Smithsonian people many times! No answer of any sort!! Very misleading and underhanded to make subscriber believe digital magazine included!!! WILL NOT RENEW!!!!!
