  • On-line Readers Digest

    By PaulaDiane
    The beauty of downloading a magazine is being able to read it while on a plane, etc. The problem with this app is I will download it and by the time I go to read it it is no longer there. It needs to be downloaded each time I want to read it which I can’t do on a plane. Why such a short window? Why does a magazine that I’ve already downloaded have to be downloaded over and over again. Frustrating!

    Can’t get it to load on my iPad Pro
  • Crashes

    By Conroedave
    Received an issue that continued to crash and crashes as we speak. I reported this as a problem several times and they completely ignored me. I generally like the magazine but cannot recommend it due the lack of support.
  • Used to be great

    By RetfaCass
    I also am having trouble with the February issue, closing within seconds. Never had any problems prior to this issue. From other reviews, it seems that Apple & Reader's Digest need to get together & fix the problem instead of passing off blame to the other. PLEASE FIX!!!
  • Reader's Digest App

    By Surprised, not
    I have had nothing but trouble with being able to open and have the app stay open since the February issue became available. It just automatically closes after about 10 seconds. I've been in touch with customer service at Reader's Digest who told me that I would have to contact iTunes who has given me several hoops to jump through to no avail. Now I have been told to go to the app and select the "App Support" option, but that keeps coming up with a generic error page and so.... I'm unhappy right now. Perhaps this review will get some response??

  • Is anyone else having trouble with the February issue

    App closes within seconds when I try to read this issue
  • Excellent magazine and app

    By dstnes
    One of the best magazines I've ever read. I've been very reluctant to get the app but when I found out I failed to renew my print subscription within the required time frame I found myself at a loss waiting for my magazine to come again. So I got the app and I actually think I like it better. I don't have to wait for the magazine to come in the mail. App is excellent. The bookmarks were a little challenging to find and figure out how to use but other than that it's great!
  • Nicely done app, wish there were page numbers

    By StarbaseDoug
    I’ve been waiting for quite a while for the app to be included in my subscription. I’ve been a subscriber to RD for 37 years. Until recently, the app was only available for six months of the subscription. Very glad they changed that policy. This app is nicely constructed. I’d give it 5 stars if it included page numbers so that I can match where I’m up to with my hard copy magazine. One other small change I’d like is for there to be an option for bookmarks to be the first thing visible, when clicking the top of the magazine, rather than the list of articles. I always want to go to bookmarks first.
  • Loses my place too much

    By LakeKat2
    I love Readers Digest and will continue using this app, BUT I'm very frustrated with this iPhone app! When I take a break from reading for a day or two and don't close the app, just minimize it, it very often loses my place. It loses it when I close the app also :(. I shouldn't have to bookmark my spot and most often forget to do that. I tried to leave a comment using the App Support link, but the link is broken. Sigh.
