  • Not Perfect, But No Issues

    By wallemon
    While not perfect, the app isn’t giving me the issues noticed by others. It does have some quirks. For example, if you choose to Restore Purchases, it will only restore the items you have purchased through the app. In order to restore items from a print or digital subscription purchased through Fine Woodworking, you’ll need to login in order for those issues to appear. You can then download the ones you want. Looking forward to future app enhancements.
  • Flawed Software

    By Jb587
    If I could give 0 stars I would. I never write reviews but will make an exception. Software doesn’t function properly. Tried to speak with customer support. Spoken down to as though I’m an idiot incapable of signing into a simple app only to confirm that there is in fact a problem. Told the first time I’d hear back in 24 hours. After 48 hours I was told that’s just an estimate. Entirely unable to use digital subscription.... extremely poor service delivery.
  • Can’t Login

    By tmccabejr
    I have a subscription to Fine Woodworking. Beautiful publication. This app however will not let me login. Contacted Taunton’s support - canned response about “how to” login using one’s email address on file. I have gotten 4-5 different error messages from “not registered” to server errors, etc. Subscribe to the print magazine - BUT don’t expect this POS app to do anything more than create frustration. Waste of time.
  • App does not work

    By Dagzing125
    Downloads go to 99% but never finish
  • Missing issues, customer service horrible.

    By timoc74
    I hated the new app when it was pushed on me, I lost at least a years worth of magazines (would be forced to pay for them, not just redownloading them) that I had under the old app. I contacted customer service with Taunton and gave them my order number for a digital subscription and was basically told that they confirmed the start date of my subscription, but then blamed the developer of the app and said there’s nothing they can do, but that I should look for an app update to fix the issue. The app update came and still no fix. I recently updated to iOS11 and now the app is useless. Taunton and the app developer both need to get their act together and make this stupid app work. The ONLY reason I still have a subscription is that I love the content.
  • The last update was a major step backwards

    By eamesst
    The last update was a major step backwards and the current app no longer works.
  • They restored a grand total of 5 old magazines

    By Lynn3333guttrdg
    Dealing with them is incredibly painful. They said they restored but when you click restore it goes off to somewhere for a minute then says restored. Then you go to download and maybe you have one to download. Then you go try more restore ok loops and it does not have one to download. Why oh why can’t I do one restore for all my magazines then go download? It has been well over a month dealing with non responsive support. They lie when they say your magazines won’t be lost with the new app.
  • It's Great, When It Works

    By Kritter64
    It doesn't work at all on my tablet. Customer service said it was my problem. On my iPhone when tap on an area I get sent to something between the app and the website. The only way back to the app, is to completely close the app and restart it.
  • Tools & Shops issues cost extra? Fixed!

    By J-Manns
    Happy to see that the annual Tools & Shops issues that are part of the print subscription are now included at no extra cost in the new version of the iPad app. Thanks!
  • Doesn’t work on older devices

    By Mario62
    I have tried to send feedback to Taunton via their apps and via the web site, but neither works (I have screen shots if someone at Taunton wants details) so have resorted to a review. The new version of this app is a big step backward. The biggest problem for me that I am not seeing the latest issue of the magazine on older devices. I have an old iPad in my shop and there’s no way I’m going to replace it just for this. It used to work just fine. Another problem is that they have not thoroughly tested offline use. A couple of days ago I was away from net access and went to read the mag. It would not show me an issue I had previously downloaded because it could not connect to their site. Both of these are unacceptable. If these are not fixed by the the time my membership is up for renewal in a few months, I won’t be renewing. And they should fix the feedback/contact mechanisms too. I’m posting the exact same review for both FWW and FHB.
