Shows promise, but fails on execution

I subscribed for this for a year, So I will continue to suffer with it, but it is in need of some TLC. You are continually prompted to download "magazines" that you have previously downloaded. 140 MB at a shot, hope you're not on a metered connection. There are times when it will link you to the website - which is great for all of the additional content and the ability to cut and paste or Print ..bur at other times, the browser is imbedded and hamstrung.

Very nice app for Surface

This is a very well done app for Surface. Fine Cooking is awesome for letting subscribers have the online edition for free. I have the iPad app as well, I like this version a lot more. Love the text view for recipes -- this is an excellent feature and it will be great for cooking from the recipe. The visual table of contents interface is also nice. Thanks!

App doesn't work

Only shows two issues. Selecting 1 mag issue crashes the app. Selecting the other gives an option to download which never completes!

What's the point?

We love fine cooking magazine and found a wonderful surprise to see it as a Win8 app. But the app doesn't work. It showed the cover of a magazine from 2 issues ago, with the option only to "Download." When clicking download, it never did anything. This has less functionality then the web site and doesn't even work. What's the point of this?

its just a pdf of the current issue

UI is not very Win8 like. For example you can only see the back button if you expand the top edgy. You also can't pinch to zoom on the magazine to get a closer view. You have to hit their zoom button hidden in the bottom edgy to go to a predetermined zoom level of the magazine. Its ok, can be handy, but as a subscriber there is nothing here that benefits me.

Love the actual magazine. Can't get the app to work correctly on my tablet and not at all on my Windows 8. Sent email to the company...NO RESPONSE.

App is a sales ad that takes a half hour to load

This app has no recipes. It is a vending site that will ask you to pay 30 dollars for a subscription, or 7 to 12 dollars for single issues of the print magazine "online".
