Ratings and Reviews
I absolutely love having inspiration and information right there— in the yarn shop, waiting in line, midnight moments. Having the pattern always there is such a luxury. Thanks, Vogue.
Getting worse, much worse
This latest version of the app is HORRIBLE. Gone is the convenient ‘editions’ view where you can see pages showing tiles of the magazine covers and their availability and select one. Now we have something called ‘magazines’ that forces you to scroll through the covers ONE AT A TIME (with several of them being blank because they take too long to load). There are probably about 60 magazines here. One at a time. Really? What a waste of time! I’m better off going to my bookshelf.
And we can no longer scroll through the magazine. Now we must look at a menu of articles and open them, ONE AT A TIME. Are you kidding me?
There’s a huge banner ad at the top of the main page. Once you’ve seen it, what’s the point of keeping it there? It just gets in the way of what you’re trying to do, which is look at virtual magazines. Especially if we already own the advertised book.
It used to be a pleasure to browse through the virtual magazines on my tablet, but this is torture. Back to the hard copies!
I’m trying to think of at least one positive thing to say, but honestly, all of the convince and appeal is gone. Is it possible to install an old version?
VK, the least you could do is allow users to select the view that suits us so that we could use the app without it getting in the way of what we’re trying to accomplish. Please be respectful of our time.
This app is a hot mess
I have been a subscriber to VK since the 1980s. When the app first came out I was ecstatic and disposed of all hardcopies of the magazine that were digitally available. But with the most recent release I’ve lost access to all digital versions other than the 2 most recent. When I contacted tech support, access was restored, but I’ve lost it again. I am prompted to unlock each issue to obtain ONE MINUTE of free access. To do so, I’m prompted to log in. AlthoughI am already logged in, I do so and my password is rejected.
In addition, with the previous version I was able to share a few pages. This was quite convenient as it allowed me to print only necessary instructions for a pattern and to mark up the copy while knitting. Now that feature is gone. Instead when I share a page, I receive an email (essentially an ad) to download or open the app.
