Can't Even Sign In!

I get a pop up screen telling me to sign in to Windows Live to access my magazines. Then I click on the "sign on" button and the same window keeps popping up. Wonder if I can sue for the cost of my unreadable magazine subscription.

I love this app. I've used it on other devices and never had a problem with it. I use it mainly for music magazines from the Uk which locally are very expensive. This app has saved me money and is very convenient.

Nice looking app for my Lumia 1520. I'd purchased a copy of History of War thru the windows app on my surface pro2. Looks good on it but can't zoom in it for some reason. On this pocketmags app zoom works fine. Only problem I've not been able to register an account. Keep getting an error message. Keep trying I guess. Otherwise a nice looking app.

Junk

Just lost the magazine in my library and can't get it back, rebooted, logged off and on, restarted the app, still nothing. It even shows the mag I last read in the menu, but I cant access it. I installed the app on my Android Phone to see if it was an issue with the Magazine or Pocket Mags ... everything is fine on my Android. Very Frustrating .. I was in the middle of reading and switched windows for a minute, this started when I switched back.

Bugs

A few issues from my previous subscription cause the app to dump out when I flip to certain pages. Even after re-downloading. Plus the option to subscribe to Stuff dumps out so I can't subscribe in the app. I like the layout and the options, though. Please patch the bugs.

BUGGY! or WTF?

►Downloaded App for Windows 8 laptop ►Searched for desired Magazine ►Purchased a 4 issue subscription to said Magazine, using Microsoft Account ►Pocketmags DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THAT THIS MAGAZINE HAS BEEN PURCHASED FOR VIEWING! There is NO FAQ's section to query, nor any contact info available! UPDATE: After reading the other reviews, I am submitting my issue to the California State Attorney General's Office, via online complaint. ASAP! Don't waste your time on this fraudulently coded app!

Awful: doesn't work

After waiting for 2 months for my 'latest edition' of my ongoing subscription to appear in my library I realized 2 months had passed. My iPad has no issue showing the latest version edition when published. I finally found the missing editions in the 'shop' after a search. They'll only half download and I cannot restart the download. They will not add themselves to my library. Why this app wasn't tested by someone who wasn't the dev before it was released to the store - I don't know!

Charged for a subscription but didn't receive.

I had a pocketmag account from iPad prior and when installed this app on Win 8 seen my library I had purchased from iPad. However when I purchased a subscription (2 mags) (verified Paypal charged) the app gave obnoxious error and said content not available. I was charged $27 for 2 mags but app doesn't show - filed a PP complaint as well as a complaint to Microsoft as well as to PocketMags. This app seems to have tech issues that need to be debugged immediately.

sucks

They will gladly take your money and run. Purchased a subscription and then nothing happened. Then bought a single issue and still nothing. Stay away.
