  • App is quirky

    By profmiket
    Below is a review I wrote about 2 years ago. I still have problems with the app not retaining my subscription information. -— Seems like both the website and the iPad app have had problems for a couple of years that have not been addressed. I got an e-mail verifying my renewal today that contained a link to my subscription. Using that link, I got a page that said, "We have moved," and gave another link to get to the magazine. Since SciAm just sent me that link, why haven't they updated it to take me to the address that they've move to? Additionally, on the iPad app, I have to re-registered my subscription if I have accessed it for a few weeks. After I do that, I have access to the digital issues, but I don't understand why I have to keep re-registering. This annoying problem has been true for previous versions of the iPad app. Despite these problems, I think the SciAm content is great and it has kept me as a long-term subscriber.

    Searching for articles in back issues isn’t possible

    Nuff said.
  • Poor access

    By Papabell2
    App does a poor navigation job on phone! Also bought a special report and had to download as pdf, could not get it to load into my SA app.
  • Frustration

    Frustrating. Keeps losing my subscription information and asks me to pay again for downloads. Sciam was not able to help. Magazine is fine but app is not good.
  • Great magazine; app has quirks

    By Ken in Ann Arbor
    Just about every time I use the app on the iPad I need to re-login and that takes a few tries due to the quirky login page. Other subscription apps like NYT, WSJ, and Washington Post work well. Maybe it’s time for an updated Scientific American app, please.
  • Scientific American app

    By tom big historian
    Really handy. But it’s a bit easier to navigate in iBooks. Page lay out in a row at bottom. Would be god to have book mark and underlining capability.
  • Fix this app!

    By xt33na
    It doesn’t work! Signs me out everytine, deletes my downloaded issues, deletes my scrapbook. Very, very frustrating!
  • Incredible

    By Ugyguyfrgfirgviuefi
    I am always amazed at the wealth of knowledge this magazine has to offer and their app lives up to that same quality. If you’re on the fence about buying a subscription, do it. It’s got information on just about everything from dark matter to weight loss (which at times can seem like a dark matter). Anyway, I commonly read these magazines and this app only makes my addiction portable and easy! Thank you Scientific American!
