I purchased a subscription through my iTunes account but want it to sync up with my android device. Went to help > contact us but says I don’t have an email account setup... even though I am i just purchased it with my Apple ID. And there is no place to set one up in the app.

Can’t read my purchases

Bought 2 issues no problem, then got a 3rd. It let me buy it, but I couldn’t download. Followed recommendation of reinstalling and restore. No help. Still let’s me download samplers. So that’s something.

Do not buy!

When you try to restore purchases they never come back. But if you like to throw your money down a hole or light it on fire then this is the app for you!

Wow, ads galore!

I purchased the past issues for ImagineFX for $50 and now when I look through my library it’s full of ads to purchase other magazines! If I wanted other magazines I would search for them. I wouldn’t mind a recommendation here and there but it’s literally every other item in my library is an ad so scrolling through trying to find my magazines it’s confusing what is something I own vs something they’re trying sell me. Can’t recommend until they fix this!

Broken

After about a year of subscription and buying all the back issues. The app completely stopped working. Denying me access to my entire library of magazines. I unsubscribed to the service for the time being😔. Since I actually can’t use what I’ve paid for.

Broken Abandonware; Needs Update🤢

Seems to be abandonware, sadly. The app is simply broken - regardless of where you left off reading, if you open it up again it often tries to start in the store rather than where you were reading, and it hangs trying to load the store if your internet connectivity isn’t perfect, possibly for minutes at a time!! It is also astonishingly slow to start up in general, especially if you have more issues downloaded. Worst of all, the sort function usually doesn’t work, so issues aren’t sorted properly by issue number even when you select ‘sort by publication date.’ Developers are completely and totally unresponsive - these issues have persisted for more than a year, with no fix in sight! Lastly it is astonishing that there is no search function of any kind - seriously, a digital collection without search? You should be able to search for articles, artists, topics, article types, etc.! I wish the app worked properly, since the magazine itself is brilliant. :(

One of the few magazines I read!

Being a lover of art and artist myself I enjoy. There are lots of techniques and styles showcased. Mainly a focus on digital but traditional art is included here and there. Translating digital workshops to a traditional setting isn’t particularly difficult.

Great!

Spectacular picture quality, great articles and even better art. I have the app on both the iPad and iPhone; I was impressed enough with the content on the tiny iPhone SE that this specific app became a huge part of why I chose to purchase an iPad over a Surface. (Imaginefx made a similar app for the Windows store but there wasn’t nearly the same kind of deal available last I’d checked) Well worth the price of admission.

Great Magazine, Embarrassingly Bad App

FoolishHubris's Review of Imaginefx

Reviewed on 12/15/18 12:53 PM

I’m basing my review on the app performance rather than the magazine itself. The published content is great, but you would be better off purchasing the physical copy over this app. I foolishly ignored the other app reviews here and went with the digital subscription so as to not waste paper; it’s also a bit cheaper. Lo and behold, my digital subscription is useless because I’m unable to download the latest issue. The only button displayed is the one to purchase the issue separately. Going through support gets me 1) a guide to fix the issue that does not do so, 2) an automated email response describing this exact problem, suggesting following the steps of the troubleshooting guide that does not work, and then stating that the team will only respond to help emails describing other issues, and 3) an FAQ filled with broken links. How does the app not know I have a subscription when I’m logged in with the account that I made when I purchased the subscription? This app is also totally crammed with ads, including those for other magazines and ad messages for other apps that you cannot delete from your in-app inbox. On top of slow load times and errors opening the store, it’s really just too much. That said, I would have overlooked these issues if I could actually read the magazine. I will update this review if I happen to hear back from support. Until then, I suggest getting a physical copy instead. Maybe then you will actually get your magazine.
