App has always been poor. I’d prefer a pdf rather than the buggy mess that is this app. For the current issue, the app crashes continuously after about the fourth article.
I've been reading popular mechanics on my iPad for years. I updated the app and now it locks up, then it won't open. Very frustrating. I have to delete the app and reinstall it when it gets stuck. Nothing else works.
January 2020 issue never came to be downloaded in i pad and it is already feb 2020. DigitalmSubscription paid up to august 2020. I feel cheated and robbed. A refund would be ok.
Since Hearst saw fit to remove the “News” feature, I feel this is is generally worthless to have unless you subscribe to the digital version of the magazine. I get it. They want subscribers, not “freeloading “ readers. I’ll delete the app from my iPad and phone. I can get the mag on Zinio for the issues I want to read the mag.
This is my one remaining digital publication and I am looking to get more. Not only is the price great, but I don’t have to search for it and if I’m done, it isn’t necessary to recycle it. When I go to my summer house, it follows me! However, it has been succeedingly difficult to get my download. I get notes like wrong ID format , notifications of new providers, subscription expired. I’m paid up into 2020 through HEARST on line and about every other issue I have trouble opening the issue. Hearst confirms my script! I still don’t know who is the magazine source or where to turn for help. So I ‘m using this and MAZ and PM that should have been e magazines.
Poor, never works.
I have tried multiple time to log in via subscription, but it won’t let me. I want the app, and love popular mechanics, but i wish I could actually log in 🤷🏽♀️
I subscribed. It says I have a subscription and asks for my account and password- which of course it never let me set up a password- so I Can’t access anything. Popular mechanics support has NOT been helpful. All that money wasted.
I’m glad Pop Mech has allowed for an all-digital subscription that’s actually better than what you can get in paper form. Many other publications force you to also subscribe to the paper version, which is superfluous with a digital copy. I like how I don’t have to download all the issues onto my device, since all of them are available in the cloud any time. I like being given a choice of how to access the content (as a sort of browser or as a more book-style PDF). This is digital content done right.
Same great articles as always, but what’s up with all the junk advertisements ?
