  • Cannot access any of my content

    By Debbyvivari
    The new app won’t let me sign in nor is any of my purchased content available. When will this be fixed? I wrote an email to tech support to no avail and with no response. Really unacceptable, I paid for that content.
  • New version issues

    By Ian02056
    Was forced to upgrade version, and now have no access to mags. Looks like not validating iTunes account, and wants me to log in. Called app developer...they say call apple. (They also don't respond to emails) new version looks horrible anyway, and a step backwards. Would rather get a refund if someone would talk to me!

    I purchased one issue, and thank goodness it was just one. I am beyond frustrated and annoyed that it has taken hours to download this issue. It took so long, I fell asleep and continued the download the next day. Painfully one by one... and each and every page takes at least two to three minutes to load. Never again! EVER!
  • Not Liking New Version

    By KDPM
    I can only download past issues one page at a time, and, if that wasn't bad enough, each page take 30 seconds to load. There is no way to download the whole issue and read without internet access.
  • I wish I hadn't updated the app

    By Redheadgirl12
    The latest update is painful. Instead of being able to download the whole issue to read through, I now have to wait for each page to slowly load as I flip through. This is not an enjoyable reading experience! I also lost my saved articles from previous issues. If this does not get changed I will discontinue my subscription.
  • Bad update

    By Zegoytg
    They continue to make the app more and more useless. This time youncan not download a qhole issue bit one page at a time and the "favorites" star has disappeared completely. Avoid this until they fix everything if they ever do.
  • Latest issues don't appear.

    By SenwosretBakes
    Despite my subscription and having the latest version of this app and iOS, the latest issues of the magazine are not available within the app. Customer service merely states that they should appear, but cannot help me beyond that. The content is good. I do still access to my back issues, but I PAID for the next year. Very disappointing.

    I don't even have this app and it keeps telling me to update it.
  • Do not waste your time

    By artisticforge
    Having a printed subscription is still the way to go. There is a serious downside to the app. There is no way to print directly from the app. There is no way to backup the issues you access to your computer. If you change iPad or upgrade your iPad you need to download all the issues again. That is assuming you can download them again. Downloads are extremely slow. You must tell it to download each issue because there is no download queue. What is the sense of the "restore previous purchased issues" when it will not and can not do that? They do not understand "Restore Previous Purchases". There are missing issues. Most of the embedded videos are broken. This new version does not have the same functionality that the previous version had. This is a cookbook and not a magazine. This is not what I purchase back in 2011, 2012 and 2013. There is no customer support.
  • Used to love this

    By ChicagoKAB
    For two years, I have loved using the BBC good food electronic subscription. This week, they've ruined it. I used to be able to search by keyword like "salmon" or "barley" and get all the recipes using that ingredient. There is no search capability. I also used to have categories for bookmarks so I would bookmark all the recipes I liked and then move them in and out of a category called "this week", quickly finding the 3 or 4 I intended to cook in the near future. Gave the app an extra star because the new look and iPhone support are ok.
