Won't download new issues?

The app will not download the new issue when it comes out. Sometimes it shows up weeks later. What's the problem? I have asked TS twice and receive only canned answers that do not work.

By Mike Hallman

Very good digital content

Not being a print subscriber I don't have any of the issues that others have regarding pricing and such. I'm only evaluating the digital version itself. With that, it's a really well designed app, easy to use table of contents, and otherwise basically just like reading the magazine on the iPad. If anyone subscribes to GQ on the iPad, it's an identical setup. The downside is that, unlike GQ, it does not allow for landscape reading, which would be nice when I'm using my smart cover and reading as I eat breakfast, which I like to do. The second downside, like GQ, is that it doesn't allow for background downloading. The issues aren't that big so this second one isn't a huge deal, but it would be nice to begin a download and then switch to another app in the meantime. But all-in-all a very good app, four stars.

How the heck do you download issue?

The updated app instructions indicate that there should be a star that you select to download an entire issue to read offline. The stars only appear for individual articles inside of an issue. I shouldn't have to download each article individually. *Update* as of July 14, they've fixed the offline magazine glitch

App continues to freeze. This has been going on for a while. Please fix so I can read an article all the way through with out having to restart the app after reading every paragraph.

Apple, Great; RW, not so much.

I have been a subscriber to Runner’s World on and off for many, many years. The past few years, I have subscribed and enjoyed the magazine through iTunes. Since Hearst purchased the magazine, the app has been glitchy. It now freezes and will not open. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app to no avail. I phoned RW and they referred me first to a website, then to Apple. Their support phone line didn’t even try to help. Apple support said that all they could do was confirm my subscription. You can’t really expect Apple support to know the ins and outs of each of millions of apps, so that makes sense. When I told Apple that RW had not helped but had referred me to them, Apple support offered me a refund. So, I received great support from Apple. Kudos to Apple! But, Runner’s World, or more rightly, Hearst, doesn’t seem to give a hoot.
