I’m one of many that can’t download previously purchased magazine issues.

I believe a magazine app that features subscriptions is supposed to allow you to download magazines. The makers of this app disagree with me. Update: I received a response to my review from the developer stating that if I had troubles I should hit the "need help" button. Thanks for the response, I had done that, and thankfully after a week of emails I was able to download issues. That doesn't address my key point: the app should work from the start. I've updated my title to address the developers response and gave them an extra star for having worked with me to get my downloads working. Another issue with this app is that it used to be an interactive version of the magazine, now it's just a nice scan of the pages.

Please fix the app - it just does not work. Love the magazine.

The app is horrible. I purchased the digital version of the magazine but the app doesn't allow you to read the articles. Don't waste your money.

I'm a relatively new subscriber and love the material as well as the app. I use it on my phone and my iPad and seems fine. My only complaint in the month that I've been a subscriber is that it would be nice for the app not to refresh to the main screen and lose my place when I need to close it to do something else for just a few minutes.

App crashes and closes repeatedly. App description should also clarify that a subscription to the paper copy does not grant you access to digital reading, but this information isn't mentioned.

This app is not optimized for the iPhone Plus, and thus it's content is enlarged and blurry. I assumed apps like Backpacker would be better on the larger screen of the iPhone plus, but instead they are worse. Instead of being able to view more content, the buttons take up much more of the screen and everything is pixelated.

I love this magazine and used to love the app. Then after November my issues stopped coming, and then the latest update doesn't even allow me to open the app any more. The "app support" button just takes you to a general webpage without any app support listed. I want to love it again. Please get it fixed. Just wanted you to know I cancelled my subscription until you get this fixed (if you do)

The magazine is fine, however, a recent app update wiped out my library and I am still attempting to restore. I believe paper subscription is a more reliable delivery at this point.

This app used to work fine but not anymore. I will cancel my subscription and get the issues free by borrowing from my local library.
