Customer Reviews of the Sky Telescope Magazine App

Great magazine, frustrating app

The convenience of digital editions is great. I've had no problems accessing issues I've paid for. I enjoy the simplicity of the app and think that makes for a better reading experience. However, the app does not save your place!! If you leave the app for too long, or at all on older devices, it closes the issue you're reading and the next time you open the app, you're back at the home screen. Then you have to open the issue back up and go back to where you left off. So be sure to pay attention to the page you're on if you're going to close the app! This is, in my opinion, unacceptable for a reading app. Please fix this!

Works but needs a refresh

The app works fine, but the UI is in desperate need of an update. A text only view for articles would be a huge help as well.

Fails every time!

Very disappointing! Program crashes every time I delete an older issue or load multiple issues. Today I had to delete and reinstall the program when it wouldn’t let me delete 2013 issues to free up a little space on my iPad. When I tried to reload current issues, it crashed again with the 4th issue I tried to load. I’ve had the same problem since I first subscribed in 2012, despite claims that the problem has been fixed. With so many excellent magazine apps out there (e.g. National Geographic, The New Yorker) I don’t understand why they can’t fix this.

Great app

SkyWayManAz's Review of Sky Telescope Magazine

Reviewed on 12/14/18 8:09 AM

Sky & Telescope switched to a new platform to view issues. The new platform refuses to recognize my subscription. S&T was made aware of this problem over the summer and continued to support the old platform for a few months while this was being addressed. Now that is no longer an option and Zinio hosting them now refuses to recognize my subscription. S&T refuses to assist as I’m an iTunes subscriber. To me that’s a rather unacceptable position for them to take. iTunes shows my subscription is valid and refers me to S&T. Zinio has been show a screen shot of my subscription being valid and I still have zero issues. They’ll probably eventually resolve this. However it was a known issue months ago so it must not have been much of a priority. Until all parties involved stop pointing fingers at each other I’d steer clear of a digital subscription.

Horrible

This has been a waste of time and money. I've had the app for a year now and I think I was only successful with being able to open 3 issues. At first it would take multiple login attempts to view the magazine. Now nothing I try will open them. The app asks for my email and password, which it says it doesn't have on file and gives me a link to the publication company to restore it. When I ask them to fix it they ask for my address and 16 digit code on the mailing label of the magazine. When I explain to them I don't get a physical magazine in the mail (it's through iTunes) they tell me they don't deal with that. So I basically gave them money for nothing.

The previous version of this app did not work ether and took a long time to fix and when it started working it was slow and just got passed useable. Updated app came out and I got it and it all went wrong!!! My password would not work, lost all my back issues, new issues only get the ads no content, support well waste of time send me to another app that doesn’t work ether. Subscriber apps in digital magazine world seem to be a problem why I don’t know Sound easy download magazine and enjoy not the case, that’s to bad no joy and no help!

Not functional

App used to work OK but it has not worked at all for months. Closes immediately after opening. Extremely frustrating. It is a shame because S&T is a great publication. Do not spend any money for this. I have many issues downloaded on iPad and I cannot access them. Developers need to get their act together.

Worthless

I can’t see any issues on my iTunes subscription anymore. Totally worthless.

ITunes sub problems fixed?
