App locks you out of magazines before your subscription expires.
It is Dec 31 and no January issue yet. Ugh!
I love this magazine. It certainly gives me many good ideas and how to's. Love the network and feel like you know all the designers personally. Thanks and being able to download to my iPad, I can bring it with me to read anywhere!
Don't get involved with this. Buy it on the newsstand! After several years of subcribing I decided to take a break for a while and I have been trying for over a year to cancel this subscription and it just keeps showing up. I've tried canceling online and by calling Hearst Inc. and I've been assured that I'm cancelled then it shows up on my bill again. This is a nightmare and I regret the day I subscribed. I see the magazine everywhere, it would have been so easy to purchase a copy occasionally and not get stuck in this twilight zone.
The black boxes at the top and bottom of each page have reduced the readable portion of each page to an unacceptable extent. They serve zero purpose except to frustrate. Furthermore, updating my iPad Air 2 has resulted in an app that doesn’t work — again. The cover opens and that is it. Am I supposed to dump and reinstall again? I’m getting ready to cancel and dump for good.
This app used to work great. Now it constantly glitches. You can’t move between pages, it crashes, opening contents closes the magazine. Half the time I can’t get passed the cover.
This is a terrible app with even worse customer service. Wants a password but has no option to reset it. Unable to access the magazine and can’t find anyone who is willing to help at customer service. Will take my & elsewhere.
I just came back to the after about a year. Have to unlock an issue before you can leave a bookmark (how is that done, by the way?), no list of issues owned - have to scroll through everything to which ones say ‘available offline’. This makes it almost worth it taking up space on bookshelves or magazine racks & going back to the physical issues. Please fix the app & put it back the way it was. I have no idea how to find the bookmarks on my older issues from before the update.
When I first started using this app it was buggy and difficult. Now a year later, I absolutely love it over the physical copy! I use the favorite button to star ideas for later. No more to tearing out a page just to lose it! I am also a fan of the hyperlinks for all the products they feature - no need to google them later to purchase!
I love this magazine, but the digital edition went so far downhill when MAZ took it over. It's not user friendly, the magazine is always our on shelves before it shows up in the app, and the layout of the app is not as fun to read as it used to be. When my subscription is up, I won't renew but may go back to just the paper copy if I still want te magazine.
