Bug fixes and improvements
Ratings and Reviews
Who's reading this magazine on their iPad? Not the folks who updated this app
This "upgrade" of the magazine app is a travesty for readers. Obviously not designed by someone who reads the actual magazine. Cropping the pages to partial page size, taking away the keeping of your place while mid-read of an article or edition are just a few of the ridiculous "upgrades". I can't always finish an article, now I have to remember which months edition I'm on and then search for the article and then finally find my page. Seriously??? Bring back the previous version of this app. You are making me completely regret my "paperless" subscription to this magazine that I've loved for 30 years.
How About Some Respect for Subscribers?
One of the reasons I bought my iPad was so that I could eventually cut down on the amount of paper I consumed, particularly for magazines that I read once and then discard. I've got to admit that Vanity Fair is one of those. So imagine my disappointment to find that even though I already am a Vanity Fair subscriber, I would have to pay extra to read an issue on my iPad. Time magazine doesn't make me do that. I can download every issue to my iPad. All I had to do was set up an account and enter my current subscription information. But not Vanity Fair. To read that on my iPad, I would have to buy each issue, at $4.99. I don't think so. Come on Conde Nast. How about some respect for your subscribers. I already paid you once. Now give me the option of how I consume your product. Eventually, I might decide to convert to a digital-only subscription and do away with all that paper. If enough subscribers did that, imagine the impact on your bottom line. No more printing costs. No more mailing costs. The free preview content looked great. I could easily become a convert to a digital edition on my iPad. But I'm not going to pay your twice.
Error Message Central
I am so frustrated with this app. I already have a subscription, yet I cannot create a log-in. It seems that no matter what I click, I get error message -1004 (cannot connect to server) or url error, or something else. I already contacted Customer Service, and was assured this bug was fixed. I uninstalled, reinstalled...and SAME message. As an extra added bonus, do not bother writing a whole comment when contacting Customer Service. They don't read it. You get an auto-response e-mail with FAQ, and a request to hit the reply button, re-writing your inquiry. Not only does this cause you to waste time writing your problem out twice, it presupposes that their subscribers are idiots who cannot read English or have never seen a FAQ! Not to mention the warm, fuzzy feeling you get from hearing that your concerns are important to them...they just don't want to waste their time addressing them unless you really, Really mean it. Yikes!!!
