Poorly made app.

Doesn’t not work well on new phones. Text is huge and there is a ton of wasted screen space. Appears to be optimized for the iPhone 5.

Terrible App

I’ve been trying to read an issue for 15 minutes now, and the app has crashed 4-5 times. I noticed many other comments about issues with the app, so it appears that Backpacker just doesn’t care.

And blink it’s gone!! Arrg

Upon opening the app I get about two minutes of scrolling and reading and blink it just disappears! When I first subscribed I could read an entire article but it won’t stay open for a single product review or story of an epic hike. Don’t invest in this app until fixed!!!

One star generous

Despite the fact that I am a print & digital subscriber for years, app wont recognize and download issues the last few months. BACKPAKER magazine wake up and understand that ZINO, as a 3rd party curator of your digital presence, is failing you and your subscribers! This reflects very poorly on the publisher and could cause me to cancel altogether. Fix? Help?

Crashes so often, feel compelled to waste time writing a review

Subject says enough. Cancelling subscription for refund of remaining, ad-choked issues.

Great magazine, horrible app

I love Backpacker. It’s the only magazine I really enjoy reading. Great articles, amazing photography, and advertising that actually appeals to me. Sadly, this electronic version is so bad. I’ve had issues with my subscription since day one (which was more than 2 years ago). The main problem is that no matter what, every single time I open the app, it prompts me to restore my purchases, and so, I click the “ok” button and it tells me that it’s restoring and will take a few minutes. Also, at the top of the app home screen, there is always a banner that says something like, “Want to read issues? Subscribe.” But, wait...I thought I had already subscribed? Hmm... I even canceled and resubscribed at one point, in an effort to “reset” the problem. I could go on, but I won’t. Simply put, I highly discourage anyone from downloading this app. Guess it’s time to go with the paper subscription (which kind of defeats the purpose for most of us nature-loving Backpackers, don’t you think?). Ugh.

Had a few issues a month ago but subscription services was able to fix it for me. I like being able to read issues on my phone whenever I get a free moment.

Best magazine ever! BUT worst app ever!!!

Reviewed on 9/8/19 1:58 PM

The app never works properly and it is extremely frustrating because I don’t always receive my magazine in the mail either, so having both a digital and paper subscription hasn’t proven to be that effective or worth it. Ugh!!!! PLEASE FIX THE APP!!!!!!

The most current version of this app crashes so it is useless. Update: it has been over a month since the app developer was notified of the crashes and they have not fixed it yet. Backpacker magazine should be ashamed of the workable support. They need to find a new app developer.
