Have used this app for years up until yesterday. Today, I can't use it any more as it crashes constantly after a few seconds. I've hard re-started my iPad and re-installed the app, but it doesn't fix the crashes!

Useless app

Typing in my login information just sends me back to the main page, un-logged in, unable to access the issues I’m paying for. This app serves zero purpose without this feature working and it’s pathetic that a major publication like TIME Magazine can’t get an iPhone app to work on the most basic level.

Used to read

I used to love reading Time. I would save up magazines and binge read on vacations. But the updated app no longer works on my iPad. So I either need to shell out $500 for a new iPad or stop reading Time. Not sure why they can't still have a version of the app that still works on older iOS since older iPads can't upgrade past a certain point.

Awful!!

App will constantly crash. If I select an issue app shuts down. Have deleted and reinstalled app. Slow to download old issues. At various times during download app crashes. Signing out and back in does not help. Needs to be repaired.

Can’t download current issues

This happens frequently. I’m locked out of downloading even though subscription is paid through 2019. My subscription info doesn’t work when trying to access my account for assistance.

Use to be good

Paid for the app but it keeps crashing. If you can’t read articles why pay for it?

Why the poor ratings?

This app works great, content downloads quickly and was free with my print purchase. If you swipe up most content will switch to a format that is easy to read from my phone. No complaints.

This app is terrible! Crashes constantly.

What an awful app! Cannot delete issues after reading. You can delete them from download, but they still stay on face of app. Tried to send question to support but.....it crashed! will cancel subscription at its end because this app is just too darn frustrating to deal with. And now forcing me to use a nickname to submit this review! Ridiculous!

Slightly Better Than Unbelievably useless!

7/23/18 Update After months of waiting for interactive improvements, they came and were better than expected, but... The app lost it's ability to keep its place between sessions, aka "most recently read". Thus the user has to re-scroll through to find where they left off reading. Bookmarks would be nice too. Want to stay in business? Start acting like it! 1/26/17 Update Time removed all their cool interactive bells and whistles (e.g., graphics, videos, etc.) from this app. Now it's a simple PDF in a "new, improved "smaller font! So small you have to manually enlarge every page to read it and shrink it back to get to the next page. Hey Time, this is supposed to be a "value add" app, not a "value less"! 2/16/16 Update It would be nice to be able to highlight text and bookmark them. 12/11/15 Update Bookmark management still lacking. It would be nice if the TOC showed the article the reader was reading when it is pulled down. 6/6/15 Update Bookmark management needs improving. The app doesn't allow the user to delete older bookmarks that reference an issue that THE APP deleted earlier because it was old! 3/16/15 Update Swiping from page to page has slowed considerably since your last update. I'm pretty sure it's the Time magazine app because others apps that swipe such as photos swipe normally. 2/7/15 Update Thanks for implementing some of my suggestions. Here's another one. Please add the complete article titles to the TOCs. When the user is reading an issue and presses the table of contents button. The TOC lists abbreviated titles, so abbreviated that the user is unable to figure out which article is which. 9/12/14 Update The "Most Recently Read" link doesn't always work, If you bookmark an article and then delete the magazine issue, the bookmark remains and can't be deleted! Item #4 below still not available. This is perfect example of an implementation that fell in love with its technology platform and lost sight of its purpose, namely enhance the reader's viewing experience. e.g., 1) All pictures require the reader to tap on a + sign to see the picture's captions. Personally I'd prefer to see the caption with the picture and turn it off in the rare instance I wanted to see something behind it. 2) If the user downloads a later issue, the app loses track of where the reader was in the previous issue. Te app should maintain an article history showing where the user was. 3) The app overuses the "pull tab for more info" feature. This isn't easy for disabled people. 4) It would be nice to be able to highlight and search text, bookmark articles and see definitions when you select a word. However the biggest problem is: How do you download the latest issue? It turns out you go to the apps "library" and select the issue you want to download. There should be an option to automatically download a new issue whenever your iPad is connected to the web.
