  • Poor App

    By ClassicalMxFan
    I have been a subscriber to the magazine for decades but this app isn’t good. Apple, do something if you want my business!
  • Very, Very Sad!!!

    By rodorr
    Nothing more to add to this sad state of affairs!!!
  • Sky and telescope app

    By aggrived
    Worst app in the iTunes Store. Has been consistently bad for years and gets worse every time it is upgraded. -1 of 5 stars.
  • App does not work

    By Ejheckathorn
    When the app updated to 3.0, I was no longer able to view any of the issues I purchased. Restore purchases does not work. I have let it sit on that screen for up to 30 minutes.
  • Beware of this App

    By drpgx
    I have been a digital subscriber to Sky & Telescope through iTunes for many years. I never had any problems with the previous app. Since the update to the current app I completely lost my access - despite having a valid iTunes subscription. The “restore purchases” feature does not work and customer support does not reply to any inquiry. Given the complete lack of communication and apparent disregard to customer problems I am deeply concerned that I may have fallen victim to a fraudulent operation.
  • New app?

    By Indiochuck
    Updated to the new app. Now I have to download my library AGAIN. Do you know how long that takes? So after days of a message that says my purchases are being restored, I still have nothing. Why couldn’t you guys leave well enough alone?
  • Buggy and is not retrieving purchased issues

    By olg32
    The new version is even worst that the previous one
  • Over sell under deliver

    By 432 Stars
    The previous version of this app did not work ether and took a long time to fix and when it started working it was slow and just got passed useable. Updated app came out and I got it and it all went wrong!!! My password would not work, lost all my back issues, new issues only get the ads no content, support well waste of time send me to another app that doesn’t work ether. Subscriber apps in digital magazine world seem to be a problem why I don’t know Sound easy download magazine and enjoy not the case, that’s to bad no joy and no help!
  • Poor customer support

    By SkyWayManAz
    Sky & Telescope switched to a new platform to view issues. The new platform refuses to recognize my subscription. S&T was made aware of this problem over the summer and continued to support the old platform for a few months while this was being addressed. Now that is no longer an option and Zinio hosting them now refuses to recognize my subscription. S&T refuses to assist as I’m an iTunes subscriber. To me that’s a rather unacceptable position for them to take. iTunes shows my subscription is valid and refers me to S&T. Zinio has been show a screen shot of my subscription being valid and I still have zero issues. They’ll probably eventually resolve this. However it was a known issue months ago so it must not have been much of a priority. Until all parties involved stop pointing fingers at each other I’d steer clear of a digital subscription.
  • Fix this thing

    By Rickola25
    I just got dinged for my subscription renewal and none of my issues are accessible. Update: the iPad seems to have accepted what looks like an earlier version of the app after the most recent one was deleted. Issues of the magazine can be read. No such luck on the iPhone, but maybe that will be fixed.
