  • Much Improved - Love it

    By ScribblersInk21
    The new app is so much better than the old. I have had no problems with it and the issues are available in a much more timely manner. Thank you for listening and creating a new app that I really enjoy using!
  • Lost Everything I Paid For

    By The Reluctant Critic
    I have tried everything to restore purchases. No dice. The developers of this app have essentially abandoned it. Utter crap.
  • iTunes Subscription Lost

    By DGahan
    Update- I found a work around. Delete the app, then power cycle your device (just deleting won’t work, you have to power cycle). Re-install the app. Once you’ve re-installed, follow the directions in the app to restore your purchases (this worked on an iPad Pro 10.5 and an iPhone 7+, each in the exact same way). Because the app is still broken I won’t change my rating but maybe these steps will help someone else get back their purchased issues. Since the App updated to the new version I can’t access new or historical issues with a valid iTunes subscription. I’ve tried following the in-app instructions, deleting and re-installing, nothing works. I have ten months left and a lot of issues that should be available based on past subscriptions that aren’t there anymore. Please fix this.
  • Deserves a 0

    By Happy.cloud
    I have been an avid subscriber for several years. The latest “update” has taken all of my issues. I have tried to jump through all of the hoops to reinstall and restore my iTunes purchase to no avail. I sincerely hope this situation will be remedied. I even tried to email for support but was put into a loop that I could not so much as send an email for help. The magazines are great... but if I can’t view them, what is the point! All those previous issues are also gone... one remark stated that early issues are not restorable... So disappointed!! DO NOT SUBSCRIBE online until this is remedied!!!!!
  • Lost everything

    By writerlygirl
    Should be zero stars. All my issues are gone. And while it tells me the new issue is available, it never shows up because I. Can’t. Access. *Anything*. I have signed in over and over and tried to restore purchases and—nothing. All those issues—gone. Don’t update! Better yet, find another way to subscribe.
  • Next issue not available

    By Randy131516
    February 2017 issue is on the shelf but not on the app. Also, Magazine is limited to portrait view, does not support landscape view.
  • Doesn't work with subscription

    By STWills31
    I also have a subscription from the website. I was excited because I assumed it would transfer to the app. Wrong. This app is a disappointment. Make it more streamline for customers who already subscribe to the digital version.
  • Doesn't work with digital subscriptions

    By LisaPVA
    I ordered a digital subscription from the web site over 2 weeks ago but still haven't been able to gain access. Nobody responds to my requests for support, and the app does not provide a way to enter current subscription information. However they have no trouble sending you numerous marketing emails a day. Terrible. Don't waste your time.
  • Always late

    By bejaermi
    The Junot Diaz issue has been on the newsstands for 3 weeks and it's September 21st and the digital issue is not available. No other digital magazine I subscribe to is ever 3 weeks to a month late to appear on iPad. I won't be renewing my subscription. Don't subscribe to this magazine, go read it in Barnes and Noble for free.
  • No February version

    By fecolagrossi
    The Feb version has been out for a while but the app simply does not feature it. I am a subscriber and am being denied access to content that I've already paid for. I've written to the magazine but they just ignore my email. Dissapointing!
