The ipad app
I know this has been done to death but…..
I am a subscriber. The new magazine comes out, I open the app a see the new mag. I click on the price, it then says Processing Purchase Request, then nothing. It stalls on this screen for ages, currently like that since yesterday. This was she same last month.
I assume this is not how it is meant to work?Posted 4 years ago
It is a bit rubbish, it didn’t bother me too much when I had a print subscription but now I am digital only I should be able to get what I pay for.
It is still trying to process the purchase, more than 24hrs after clicking,
Also makes me wonder if stw are missing out on sales from non subscribers who may which to pay for downloads and just give up.Posted 4 years ago
I think the theory is that when the mag is published, STW let pocket mags know who the subscribers are and they in turn apply a £3.99 credit to your account, allowing you to buy the mag. Not sure if this credit is meant to show up or not, mine too just says £3.99.
PDF works fine on my ipad, but I like the app UX (when it works)Posted 4 years agoGrahamSSubscriber
In contrast the Newstand STW app works really well for me on the iPad. Notifies me when a new issue is available and I can just open it and hit download. Job done. Very happy.
Agree about the layout comments though. See “Cyclist” mag for how e-mags should be laid out. (Flick left-right through story leads. Down for story body. Flick pics for more. Full 360 views of bikes and inline videos)
In the meantime does anybody know how I get it to save on iBooks?
Once you’ve selected “Open in iBooks..” It should be saved in the iBooks library. When you open iBooks again you might need to hit the “Collections” button and select “PDFs”.Posted 4 years agojambalayaSubscriber
Sound like I’m not missing much, it is useful to download the PDF as I’m often not around to pick up the print mag and it works well as computer is linked to main TV which is a great way to read it, look at photos and videos but I’ve never bothered with the appPosted 4 years ago
