Great app, once you’re actually able to download with your digital account info. Only let me download one month and rest I would have to purchase. Still waiting to hear back from app customer service.Frustrating!

Do not like the new format

The new format of the app is absolutely horrible, all my favorite recipes went away, and I have 6 years worth of them stored! I am not sure whose idea it was , web news is annoying too , I would rather have the magazine with all its previous bells and whistles , favorites, page review, back button...

Updated app format is a step backwards

Use to be an avid reader of the app, now it’s become really frustrating as every time you click to the next page, a message appears on the top with “swipe up for reader view.” I don't need a pop up every time I swipe to a new page. Please make it stop! Can you please add a setting so we can turn off the message.

A seriously crippled app

Of all of the apps I use, this one has to be the most limiting. Compared to the actual website, this app restricts you to just the magazine with limited functionality. Frankly you are better off going to the website unless you want an app that just takes up space.

Why do developers change apps that are working fine?

F&W updated their app, although I don’t see any difference. However, several of my older issues have disappeared and at least one newer issue is locked even though I paid for it. Tried to contact them through the help section of the app but they never replied.

Drops earlier issues

If you have had an extended subscription to F&W, DO NOT UPDATE! The new app dropped my access to about half my library. They say they’ll work on it, but it would be better to wait. Issues now do not seem to be truly downloaded, but exist only as links to their server. (What happens to the issues you already paid for if you stop your subscription?) This is second update I’ve been through with them where they’ve had this kind of screw-up. Makes you wonder why they pay so little attention to whether a new app really works before releasing it.

Concentrate on food and wine

I just downloaded this app so I could look for recipes, since you DO NOT ALLOW ME TO SEE ANYTHING AT THE WEBSITE IF I GO IN FROM MY BROWSER. The app doesn’t even offer me a search option, just a list of recent issues I can view. I have the print issues. I’ve been your customer for years. I have 2 suggestions, 1. Spend more money on a reliable firm to manage your website, website access, membership. 2. Concentrate on food and wine and less on swanning around the globe showing us how cool you are. Keep in mind, face the fact...you are unable to provide a working website or an acceptable app

New app does not work

Hard to navigate and does not allow access to downloaded issues when offline - not not worth cost

New app is abysmal

Theboz777's Review of Food Wine

Reviewed on 11/29/17 3:07 AM

Love the magazine and recipes, but the new app is abysmal. 1) They've removed the favorites/bookmark feature and now not only can I not mark recipes I want to make, but I've lost all my previously saved favorite recipes. 2) The app doesn’t remember where you left off reading the magazine and you have to hunt for it. 3) The app hangs on startup if there’s no internet connection or a weak one since it wants to load articles from the internet, even if you just want to read the magazine you’ve already downloaded. Very frustrating. I paid extra for the digital subscription, but this latest update makes me not want to do that again.
