This is an easy to use online magazine reader. It shows your subscribed issues and lets you download them for offline reading. Images are high resolution. Layout is the same as the print version so of course that is a factor on small screens but on an iPad, it’s awesome. A great benefit.
Again this app has failed. Now it has zero content. Only an error message. Don’t waste your money. The wood magazine and woodcraft never have complications or missing issues.
I paid for the unlimited version so that I could have access to all the old magazines. Problem is all this app will let you view is the current month. You can see and even view the first few pages of older editions but to get one of the older magazines in its entirety it wants you to pay 8.99. I am logged in and it shows that I am paid through 2020. Best bet is to go to the website which is still very user unfriendly and go to the member area. Again and this is speaking professionally, both items web and this app work as if they were created by a beginner so if you are frustrated by websites and apps that are not intuitive stay away from this company’s products. They do have great woodworking information, it’s just frustrating to get to it.
What a joke this is - useless app - had to keep logging in - try canceling your 14 day free trial! No way to do it in the app or online. Don’t bother with this one!
Every time I open the app to read one of the issues I previously downloaded they have all been deleted and I have to download them again. This happens over & over again. What a horrible design. Won’t be renewing my subscription if I have to re-download all issues every time I open the app.
Suddenly there is no way to purchase an issue. I click on the purchase button and all I get is a “restore purchases” dialogue box.
The app will not let me log in to view the digital content and support has been useless. When reporting the issue they send me information on how to log in. Whoever is writing this app also needs to learn how to display friendly error messages and not the exact error message generated.
Won’t work without an Internet connection. I downloaded all the magazines I wanted to read on a plane flight and the app won’t even open without an Internet connection. I have to download again every time I open the app. It takes about a hundred tries to come up with a nickname to post a review
This is a joke, it is basically included in what you purchase from fine woodworking website, but if you buy through the app, for the SAME 34.99, you get none of the website access. So, why have this app. When you have issue, Taunton press claims it is iTunes issue, not theirs. I was forced to cancel the subscription and the contact iTunes for the refund. Truly a joke and even a bit deceitful on what is included.
To those complaining about the previous purchases not showing up after restoring them from your account. Here’s how I got them back. I ‘killed’ the app (ie double click home, then swipe the app up ) and then started it again. After that it seems to be working fine. To the developers, you really need to do a better job at quality assurance.
