EW why is your navigation so jacked? 2/5
Have to deinstall / reinstall every time I want to get to a different issue. Why is there no obvious navigation back to the library?
Crazy Bug 2/5
Absolutely no way on iPhone to go to a different issue. You have this endless loop of one issue only. You have to delete the app and reinstall each week? No thanks!
Can’t return to titles in library 1/5
Pls fix. App is stuck on Stranger Things issue. Working on IPad but not on IPhone.
Can’t access library 1/5
Have had this app for 2 months. I can no longer access my library from this App. I have deleted and reinstalled the app multiple times. It opens to my library at first, lets me re-download 1 issue, and the I can never get out of that issue and back to the library. Useless this way! BTW...works with iOS 11 on my iPad. The issue is with iPhone.
By WOAH ITS HALEY
As others have said, no way to return to previously downloaded or available purchased issues. Must delete and reinstall the app each time. This has been occurring the last several weeks. As a 10 year subscription owner...this is a terrible version of the app.
Broken on iOS 11 1/5
Users beware: you can't return to your library on iOS 11. EW needs to fix, but they haven't touched their app in over a year!
Cannot return to library 1/5
I love LOVE love my EW app but ever since IOS 11 you can’t get back to the main menu? There used to be an arrow up on the right to get you back to your issues. Now you have to delete and reinstall the entire app? I’m assuming they’ll fix it but for now, the app is basically useless, so one star.
Only one downloaded issue on iPhone 1/5
Since I upgraded to iOS 11, the newest downloaded issue is all I can get on my iPhone. On my iPad, I am able to get my library of magazines. The library option is not showing up on the iPhone. Please correct.
I read my magazines on my iPhone/iPad. I recently upgraded to the iphone8/ios11 and when I try to read an EW magazine, I cannot find a way to switch between magazines. I am stuck on an older release with no way to return to my library. *sadface*
Any word on a new update for iOS 11? I am only able to view one issue now.
Cannot return to main page 1/5
Since IOS 11 I cant go back to the main menu page. Now stuck in the magazine issue with no where to return to other issues!! Please help fix!!!! There’s no back button to return to main menu!!
App isn’t working 3/5
I’ve had the this app for years and all of a sudden when I go into a magazine, it won’t let me back to my library. I keep having to delete the app and download to access other issues....
Broke with iOS 11 1/5
Won’t work after update. Please fix.
Closing Magazine 1/5
How do I close the magazine and get back to the library?
Entertainment good app 4/5
Used to be good....now unusable 1/5
Used to be a good digital version of magazine. Now it's essentially a PDF of the magazine. Fonts are too small. GO BACK TO OLD WAY!
Love the app 5/5
I am a very long time subscriber to the print version of EW and have been reading the magazine digitally for the last few years almost exclusively. I love the extras that are added to the digital version and the ease of reading. I like being able to zoom in on the digital version (helps now that I have "old eyes"!) and I find it more accessible. When I do have to read the print version, I always find myself wishing for my iPad because the digital version is so much better. I have never had any problems downloading and reading back issues.
Was an excellent experience on iPad.
Borked beyond belief 1/5
This app used to useful. Now it's essentially a PDF of the magazine. Perhaps the "new and improved" next release will make it as good as it used to be.
Bad New Re-hash of Print Edition 1/5
Downgrading my 5 star review to 1 star. Repurposing the print edition into the app is lazy and makes it nearly impossible to read.
Too small to read 1/5
EW has followed its sister Magazine TIME in putting its print edition on a digital platform. So squeezing a print page onto a smaller tablet makes the print TOO SMALL! Even if you expand it on a tablet, it can overrun the sides and return to the previous page - which is not what you want.
TIME INC. is obviously trying to save money, but is not keeping their digital customers happy. I have not renewed my TIME subscription and will not renew EW if they continue with this.
World's most useless app 1/5
Sized to be read by ants with great eyesight. It's not an app, just a microscopic PDF of magazine. So lazy.
Seems great but where are the Ultimate Guides? 3/5
I downloaded the app hoping I could get a digital copy of the Ultimate Guide to Wonder Woman, but I don't see any Ultimate Guides.
Otherwise, seems great. Next time I want to buy a digital copy of the regular magazine, I'll definitely use this app to get it!
Great App 5/5
By DD Watts
Easier and a quicker read than the print magazine.
No bueno 5/5
I have a digital and hard copy subscription and when I log in with my credentials it says it can't access my account!
Edited: Apps working great now! 5 stars!
BOTH DIGITAL AND PHYSICAL 5/5
Being able to get both the digital and physical copies of Entertainment Weekly is by far the greatest option I've had from any magazine.
Nice app while it was working. But suddenly doesn't recognize that I am a subscriber and will not give me the digital content!! Too glitchy!
What a pain 1/5
Like others have noticed hear the app is very inconsistent with new issues come out they don't recognize that I have a subscription and I have to go through all kinds of hoops to get new issues to download for the love of God fix it!
Can't access content 1/5
Like another recent reviewer, this app is not working for me. I cannot access any content. It makes me log in and then just goes to subscription information as I do have an actual magazine subscription. When I say I'm done with the account information it just goes back to the beginning of the app with no content. Veryannoying and frustrating.
Crap App 1/5
By The Gleason
What a crap app. It won't let me view any content and doesn't recognize my credentials. I've been a subscriber since 1996. Great magazine but terrible buggy app.
Needs a purchase library 3/5
The worst thing about this app, and caused me to give it 3/5 stars, is that they don't have a purchased library. I can't go back and find an issue I purchased about a year ago. There really needs to be a library where I can find all issued I purchased. It's really annoying.
This app is so easy to use! I am amazed! The pages on each issue are crystal clear like the print edition.
Not recognizing subscription 1/5
I'm logged in, but the app won't let me look at issues for free. I've written to support and gotten no response. When it used to work, I enjoyed it. I could access the digital version when traveling, but nothing for the last couple months. It's tempting me to cancel my subscription because of the lack of service.
App won't download any content 1/5
By Deedra B
The past few weeks have been like this. I've paid for my digital copy but I haven't been able to enjoy them. Get it together please.
Not impressed 3/5
It is laggy, gets stuck, and generally poorly designed. The odd time it works it's great which is a 50/50 proposition. I love the magazine but the app is horrid.
Fix your APP 1/5
Come on. Downloads always available late for a 15 year subscriber - its 2017 EW!
Doesn't work 1/5
I'm a subscriber, but nevertheless, this app will only allow me to manage my account - not access any content. I can manage my acocunt just fine through other means - what I wanted was a way to access content through my phone. That seems like a natural enough thing - nope.
Won't download 1/5
Is there a bug right now? It won't download to brand new iPad
Great app! 5/5
I love this app, it's very helpful and useful.
Can't access content.
No content 1/5
Won't let me access any content. Horrible.
Great app! 5/5
I'm always on the go! I stopped my subscription because I was never home to read the magazine. When I heard about the app, I renewed my subscription immediately and I'm enjoying everything I love about EW on my own time, anywhere I go! Excellent!!
By Mr. B. Rubble
I was skeptical about the app but it is great. Easy to use, full content and convenient.
Just the way a Digi Mag Should Be!! 5/5
This app for EW is excellent. Page turns easy content easy to read and photos are excellent. I feel like I have the soft copy from the rack. You can't go wrong using this app if you like reading EW. I couldn't imagine going back to the plain copy from the store. Try it out you won't be disappointed. 😎
Broken, needs repair 1/5
Paid subscriber log-in no longer gives access to issues. EW needs to hire someone to fix the app, if they can afford to.
Why Don't more Magazines Get It like EW? 5/5
Some don't allow you to get online access even though you are a print subscriber. Others don't even have a decent online version. EW rocks. It's easy to use, perfect to read on the Pad and a bonus for us print subscribers.
EW- love it 5/5
I love carrying month's worth of magazines with me wherever I go.
Regularly fails to recognize account 2/5
On a regular basis the app refuses to let me download the latest issue even though it shows my digital account as current. Takes forever to get it to a point where it works again and the troubleshooting is no help. I don't do print subscriptions anymore and if this keeps up I'll have to stop subscribing. When it works it is great but who knows when it will stop. Unbelievably frustrating.
Never lets me download latest issue 1/5
Ugh. Every Friday, the current issue is updated. Instead of the cloud icon letting me download it (I'm a print subscriber who seems to be able to log in just fine and access previous issues), I only have the option to PAY FOR THE ISSUE.
Love EW on my iPad! 4/5
My print subscription would just pile up on the kitchen counter, but with the digital version, I just download issues when I have time to read them. Love it!
