Frustrated with constant crashing of app when attempting to open a bookmarked page. Love the magazine, hate the app- so buggy. Yes, due diligence done- updates installed, newest iOS, blah blah blah tired of the developers checklist as to why it must be my fault and not your buggy app.
I think this magazine is so extremely well done. The content well written and researched and laid out as to draw the reader in. However, the app is very buggy. I’m running the app on a brand new iPad Pro 12.9” on the current OS and the app constantly crashes while trying to have an article read via the app. Certain issues will just not download, even if doing an inner app purchase restore or iPad restart. So I’m playing roulette if I purchase an issue wondering if I’ll be able to download and read. I tried to contact The developer direct via the link on the App Store to alert them to these issues but I constantly receive an error message and can’t proceed. Great magazine frustrating app.
I absolutely love history. BBC has a little bit of everything, so I can learn about things I don't know anything about, and get new information on topics I've researched throughly. The quality is amazing, too. The only problem is that issues cost money, but I realize that money has to be made. It's also expensive- at least for me, a 13 year old who has no source of income whatsoever. Thank you for reading this, and have a great day (or night)!
I would have thought i could use my whole screen to read this, until then i wont subscribe.
I have to read every issue front to back, well not everything but I just enjoy this magazine and bonus issues, the app will sometimes make it hard to get the older issues but over all it very. Also I bought the special sale for the whole of back issues and the years in one package. If they offer that again it a no brainer buy it.
Can’t open anything it keeps crashing
The print quality and the contents are excellent which is why I bought the app subscription and it did not let me down. The articles have accompanying podcast which is great and I wish they could install this podcast for all articles not just a few in each issue. Also the special issues are great but not as interactive as the regular issues. When you want to download multiple issues simultaneously the queued issues may not sometimes download automatically but this won’t bother you. Overall excellent magazine with good app.
I got the trial subscription and will keep it, at least for a year. The content is interesting and well laid out, but I expected better. On the technical side, I really wish you included landscape mode as it’s really awkward holding an iPad in portrait mode. While I found the articles in the one issue I’ve read interesting, they’re pretty shallow. I read all of them in a little over an hour. I wish you included at least one article that was more like a meal than an appetizer.
Needs to be updated for newer iPhones/landscape mode etc... only reason for 3 star reviews. Love the service, used to receive the paper copies and was excited when I could get it on my iPad mini. App is a little wonky on my iPhone XS Max.
Love this magazine.. If you love history.. this magazine is for you App has quit working Cannot get to the magazine Fix this please PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM!!! AM FED UP Please FIX.. PLEASE FIX PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM!!!!!!
