If you want to read the magazine in an app, this works perfectly fine. If you’re looking for an experience more tailored for a phone or tablet (like The NY Times app), this is a disappointment. That’s what I was looking for.
Great app except for the fact that when I am halfway through reading an article, it jumps back to the top of the article for no reason. It does this on my new IPhone and IPad. The customer service is worthless.
But the app is incredibly bad. Always a problem signing in or getting new issues, and this is the same with every Condé Nast magazine online. I dropped my bon Appétit subscription because of this and may drop VF. Even the customer service page doesn’t work to ask questions!
Is there a limit to the number of digital subscription that I can download on my iPhone? I did pay for them already right? Why do I have to keep re-downloading what I’d paid for already? Am I missing something?
I’m about to delete the app and cancel my subscription. I got into VF for the articles that would pop up on Apple News. Good stuff. Ad free. News is getting full of ads now, and why I’m leaving it. So I’m getting all the apps from the source, but VF wants me to have the whole magazine, without a search menu, so I need to swipe through everything including ads to get to what I want. This is the bad kind of old school. The point of subscribing, on the digital era, is that you get to bypass the commercial system. Good luck with your format, sorry to leave the good writers you hire.
I lose all downloaded issues if I fully close the app. App can only download one issue at a time. Downloading stops if I leave the app. I am going back to paper issues until you get this fixed. Kindle app has been around for years without any of these issues. If you can’t bring yourself to spend the money to get a decent app, let some of your IT guys come to your Oscar party, maybe they will fix the bugs for free.
I have a hard copy subscription. Why must I purchase online subscription? Am I overlooking something?
The app crashes every ten minutes or so, most annoying!
A large portion of your subscribers use reading glasses. Yet VF steadfastly refuses to offer a real useable text zoom feature in the digital edition. Used to be there; worked poorly but there. Have been a user since the app was first rolled out and I am swiftly losing interest. Too much content elsewhere that is user friendly.
The app is terrible, the articles are impossible to read even by people with perfect vision: text size can not be adjusted
