I really like the iPad version of the magazine. I think it's easier to read than the real thing and way easier to move from article to article. It also is slightly bigger than the actual magazine which is very nice to actually be reading it.

Nothing happens after clicking register your account

J Borghardt's Review of Readers Digest

Reviewed on 6/9/18 7:12 PM

I used to love this app. But, some changes recently have been super annoying. The app will not always save your place, even if you don’t completely close the app. Then to make matters worse, there is no longer a way to scroll through the entire issue, so you have to turn pages one by one until getting back to where you left off. But the back-breaking straw is that I recently was charged for an automatic renewal through Apple but was not able to get the app to sync to my Apple account. The online chat help button doesn’t work and Calling RD was no help...I was told it’s an Apple issue even though I tried explaining that the issue was the flaky app itself. (Deleting and reinstalling did not help). Apple wasn’t able to help because the issue was within the app which is not an Apple product. Duh. But, Apple was able to refund the renewal charge and cancel my account. So...App deleted. Rant over. I’ll read something else.

Three, because otherwise I get no attention

I ordered this magazine and I can’t log into my account and the app is NO help with that. Their digitalaccess account is either down or malfunctioning and there’s NO way to see my subscription. So I got ONE (June) physical magazine in the mail since March when I ordered, and that’s it... one magazine for $15. I used to LOVE having a subscription. Now I just want my money. Clearly, things are going downhill at RD. What a shame.

Buggy, unexpected from RD

Difficult to believe how can RD group distribute their magazines on such a buggy application. For over a month I am struggling to register my account that I purchased online for print and electronic RD magazines but keeps getting error. Tried a mail to application support team but still waiting for an answer. Good that as backup I have printed versions coming

Print subscriber disappointment

If you are a print subscriber and want access, this poorly designed AND broken app will probably waste your time. I had it working about 6 months ago and can no longer get access. Hope your experience is better than mine. No, I am not calling tech support for this, it should just work.

Not Happy about Readers Digest in ipad

I do not care to read this magazine on my ipad! Every time I close the app and reopen it, I have to search for the page I left off on. Also, I can not pass it on to a friend. If they are no longer printing hard copies, I want a refund on my subscription.

Why can’t we have landscape mode

I learned to read with Reader’s Digest more years ago than I care to admit. I am no Luddite...I prefer digital media in many ways but this is the single major publication I read that is not in landscape mode. I’ve put up with this for many years update after update, your content is ever amazing, but honestly for the first time in 50 years I am considering cancelling my subscription- I won’t go back to paper but if I can’t have landscape mode soon - so much easier to manage read and experience, I will have to say goodbye.

Used to be great

I also am having trouble with the February issue, closing within seconds. Never had any problems prior to this issue. From other reviews, it seems that Apple & Reader's Digest need to get together & fix the problem instead of passing off blame to the other. PLEASE FIX!!!
