Great magazine-love the variety
This magazine has so much interesting information. I enjoy it more than anything else in print. I have always loved history. Learning something new from every issue of BBC History is great.
Since November of 2019, it is impossible to download the magazines I have paid for! I have deleted and reloaded the app so many times that I have lost count, WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS APP?
I love the magazine and the app works fine for the most part. However, I have automatic renewal and it will not download the issues for 2020. It wants me to buy them, but when I click that, I get the message that I’m not up for renewal until Sept 2020. I’ve clicked “restore purchases” on both my iPhone and iPad and it’s still not recognizing my subscription purchased through the app. It downloaded the new Collector's Edition of Elizabethan Era, but not the regular editions of the history magazine. Please give me the magazines I’m paying for. I gave you a lot of money for all the back issues too. Actually, my iPad issues ended with July 2019, so you owe me more back issues for that
Bought the analog and digital subscription. Cannot log in to my account on my phone or iPad. Get error message saying “login unsuccessful.” Wrote twice to customer “service” requesting assistance. No reply. Sure hope the paper copy arrives and that there is actual printing on the page.
This magazine is a wonder source of information about England and its history.
I love history; this is an amazing magazine to read. I read about the past in pieces, later I connect the dots. 👨⚕️
Unfortunately there are lots of glitches in the app. Periodically, it simply shuts down when I try to read one of my issues. I’ve had to delete the app and reinstall numerous times which means I have to download issues again and again. I’d give it five stars if it wasn’t for that.
I always try to give an app 5 stars. But I have purchased my 2 year of this magazine and I CANNOT open any of the magazines from the past months. It will only let me open the month that we are in. It is very frustrating.. I need HELP!! K. W. Dania Beach, Florida USA
Update, Sept. 2019. The app crashes when I try to load new issues. Haven't got useful help yet from the support team. Hope this isn't the end of a beautiful thing. 😕 If you already love history, this magazine is a fun way to take a break from your 500 page tome and read short, beautifully illustrated articles on a variety of topics. If you're just getting into history, it's a good way to sample a variety of topics. That said, the mag is almost completely Anglo-centric and caters to already well-developed English audiences enamored of the Tudors, the middle-ages, World War II, Vikings and Celts, and these basic areas get covered over and over again, albeit from many angles. Nonetheless, I really enjoy it. Another mag, World Histories, may be more palatable to those wanting a less England- focused dose of history.
