  • Less than two stars

    By Nuguy12
    I’m not commenting on the content. The app is poorly done. Downloaded issues consistently “disappear”, becoming blank white pages. “Signing in” to your Apple account (iTunes subscription) comes up again and again (previous iOS versions had the mysterious sign in box appearing even when the app was not running in front). Unfortunately doubt they have the support to fix it.
  • Can’t read any articles

    By Reidc444
    You can review the ads just find but get to a page with an article and it just sits there and thinks. Never loads. Worthless. I hope you will now be sending me magazines by mail as my digital subscription is useless.
  • A Mac app that doesn’t work on a iPad? Irony!!!

    By Boo1787
    This is a crappy magazine app. The magazine is only available digitally, yet for a year and counting, the app doesn’t work. It requires the user to keep deleting and then reinstalling the app every time you want to open the issue. I’ve complained to them for over a year, and nothing gets fixed. It’s like the rolling stone mag app. Why is it so hard to get this fixed. If I have read an issue, then go back to read the rest of it, I have to delete the app and then reinstall it, log in again. This is the definition of a failed app. And the irony is rich that a Mac magazine can’t get their magazine app to work correctly on Mac hardware like an iPad. Yet the owners of the magazine sit idly by as their magazine, which is no longer available as print issues, looks like the developers who created it and are responsible for it’s maintenance are 90 year olds who are more proficient with Commodore 64 computers. This is super pathetic. But as usual, this complaint will fall on deaf 90 year old ears.
  • Frustrated

    By Inmnbob
    Bought the yearly subscription and still prompts me to subscribe or buy a copy even though I was charged for the annual subscription.
  • Rip. Off. Don’t download. Scam

    By AAPL Freak
    Made the mistake of downloading this and subscribing. Can’t download any issues. Tried restoring. Tried deleting and restoring to no avail. Like many others this developer doesn’t care and is stealing money. Apple needs to shut this down.
  • RB Digital App Works - No Subscription Required

    By TeKno Ziz
    Wow, this is a completely unusable app. I download an issue, read, leave the app and come back, the issue is white on every page. I need to redownload the issue every time just to continue reading. I deleted the app and tried again, and get the same results. I had to turn to my local library app RB Digital to be able to read my magazine. It’s not as pretty as your app but it has one advantage - it works (and it’s free with a local library membership). And I have been a print and digital subscriber for years and years. I am terribly disappointed.
  • Macworld strikes again

    By MedhatGA
    The December issue is blank, totally unreadable. What gives. Update: 2 issues fail to download. Trying to contact the developer, in addition to being difficult is also useless. They don't get the problem and definitely don't know how to fix the probation. Will definitely cancel my iTunes subscription.
  • Update to previously bad review...

    By padamtx continues to get worse. Can’t download the new monthly issue, restore not responsive, customer service clueless. Every month it’s the same issue, same problem. And yes, I’ve looked at accessing the material via different devices. No issue with MacLife. I’ve finally given up and cancelled my subscription. Done.
  • What a hassle

    By D. C.
    Every time I try to download an issue I have to fight with the app to restore my subscription. Why has this not been fixed?
  • Worst digital magazine

    By Mixer5
    The issues frequently disappear, only to take days to reload. Only after signing in and out and then closing and reopening the app no fewer than 6 times do I sometimes get the current issue back. Customer service takes an average of 2 days to get back with limited tech support. Their last response was that my subscription expired a year ago which it did not. Time to move on.
