Downloaded issues won’t stay downloaded 1/5
My app upgraded to the current version, and will now not let me view my issues offline, even after having to download twice. This is a very frustrating and ridiculous feature of the update. Fix ASAP.

Thanks very informative 😎
Slick & Interactive 5/5
Not that it's a surprise that the app accompanying Essence magazine is fantastic, but I've loved using this app. It saves your page right where you leave off. The image quality is beautiful. I just can't say enough! I also love that there's so much additional content available through the hyperlinks. It's an excellent app through and through.
I have read Essence for over 30 years. My grandmother referred it to me when I was 16. She has went on to be with the Lord, but she had so much class. Essence kept her informed, in the know with fashion and up to date with Celebrity news. So Essence is a tradition in my family. When I read it I feel I am paying homage to her. Maybe one day my grandchildren will read it and pay homage to me. Thanks Essence for a Black magazine that continues to honor Blacks and uphold our heritage of respect, pride and beauty!

Something is wrong!!!! 3/5
I have been using the Essence app for years and really enjoy it. But something is weird... Tonight when I downloaded my July issue... The issue loads as Instyle Magazine which also shows up in my library but I'm not downloading it. Help?
Good App! 5/5

I love it never ever had a problem from the first day I got the App up to now!! Had it for several years now. Never let me down yet!
Decent app 5/5
By NJ shopper
I like this app. I've enjoyed the subscription service for more than 2 years and I don't have any major complaints. I am comfortable with the updates made to the effectiveness and functionality. I also like customer service because they respond and make every effort to resolve issues and problems. I was an Ebony subscriber, but I dropped them after continuing problems with their app and their extremely poor customer service. I will continue my subscription as long as the service is positive.
Love the magazine. The app not so much. Ditto customer service. A years subscription gone because the app is buggy and I can't get any useful help! What a waste!!
Something has gone wrong with this app! 2/5
Display has changed for the last two issues. Nov & Dec. Print now too small, no scrolling options and links on cover and contents page no longer work. Something to do with the new ios9 maybe. Please update the app

Great app 5/5
Essence is the window into the souls of our women and it is great being able to view it anytime right on my phone or tablet. The images are clear and the links never fail. I've had this for over a year now and it's still going strong. Looking forward to many more years😍

I have always loved Essence but now that I am always on the go I found that I was not reading my paper copies...although I love flipping through my paper copy this app comes through in a pinch.

My Favorite Mag Anywhere 5/5
I'm already an Essence fan so this app was a perfect fit. I enjoy being able to buy merchandise in the app. I can scroll up and down for more information. Basically, interactive pieces. Plus, the app offers tablet bonuses with additional stories. This is a necessary addition for Essence subscribers.
Love the app! 5/5
I'm glad I purchased the digital and app version because this app makes it so convenient when I'm on the go and plus I never miss an issue.
Love it! 5/5
I love having my favorite magazine at my fingers tips--literally! The extra features are cool as well. Great app!
It doesn't work all the time. It crashes sometimes.
Other than that it would be great. The pictures are nice on my iPad.
WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE ABOUT ESSENCE! 5/5
I love having my magazine to take wherever I go without risking ruining the beautiful cover. The color is always bright & beautiful. I just love the Essence App.
Keeps crashing 2/5
Was working fine on my iPad. I stopped reading for months due to nursing school but got back to reading on break and now I can it has an error message every time I press download now on my iPhone it doesn't work . I'll try again on my iPad but I think it should be working on all devices.
Pretty Awesome 5/5

I love it
Love the convenience of having Essence right at my fingertips. In my line of work it's hard to be logging a magazine around.
By Avidreader-Loyal Customer
I love to read my favorite magazine at any time without having to care an additional magazine in my tote.
Nice app 5/5

So far so good.
Best all around! 5/5
By TT April
By far this is the best app I've had since using a smart phone. No crashes, no problems logging in or any other issues. I've been reading essence since I was knee high to a stump and I refuse to stop. By me being able to access Essence on all of my devices I don't miss a thing! ❤️❤️❤️my Essence!
When the previous app cancelled because they wanted to charge me for the digital subscription I had with my magazine subscription. It was not a easy transition but we'll worth it. No problems with app so far.
Great Digital Mag, slow to download. 4/5
I love Essence Magazine, they offer one of the best magazine experiences on the market. Beautiful layouts, interactive articles, embedded video files, the digital version is awesome. I receive both the paper and tablet versions and while I can't yet part with the look and feel of paper; the tablet version is just as appealing. It's practically another magazine!
The only con is that it can take a while to download. I recommend not reading it until it is fully downloaded.
Great app 5/5
I've been a subscriber for 4 years now and I love it. Best part about its you can start reading the next issue digitally before the print issue.
Essence Amazing 4/5
I love this app.
Yearly subscriber 1/5
Yearly subscriber and I have no new magazines and when trying to log in it says I'm not a subscriber what's up with that
It won't open any of my magazines!
I have downloaded the app in my iPhone 6 plus. It appears in the newsstand, but when I try to open it, it will not load.
Screen does not rotate :| 3/5
Super frustrating that the screen does not rotate at all---landscape view is optimal and works better when using a keyboard!
Doesn’t Work 1/5
Hard copy subscription recognized, but mobile subscription not recognized or does not load. have spent hours on phone with “help desk”.
