Great Digital Mag 2/5
By Sharon M Fling
Review update as of Dec 2017: the update has not been good on my iPad - this may be due to the fact I have an old iPad but now every page takes a few seconds to load even after I've downloaded it for offline use. Also lots of glitches and the app gets frozen often. Not sure if any others have experienced this as well. Same feelings about Cooking Light as user interface is the same.
I think it's great; I've been a digital subscriber on iPad for over a year now and have not had any issues. The only areas of improvement I can think of is speed of downloading (currently it takes a bit of time), and the fact that you have to have the issue fully downloaded before you can view it offline. Other than that I really have had no issues; it's been great!
Update Has Issues 2/5
By Kat on the Run
First, with this update I had to log back in which was a pain as I’m on holiday without user name & password. I get those, download latest issue & when I tap on it to read, the screen goes blank & freezes. I close the app & reopen but it freezes on the screen asking me to subscribe. I couldn’t even change it from Latest to Issues or Settings. This morning, I tried again to no avail. Reading the Customer Service Support for iPad, I swiped up, reopened & it again went to Latest & was not frozen. It says I’ve downloaded the issue but this has been a major pain & I've yet to start reading it so don’t know what’s coming next. Not sure what the problem is but there seems to be one.
Love it 5/5

Has everything I need, load time is quick, super user friendly. 👍🏻
Great Update 5/5
Once I logged back in and restored my purchases everything worked great. Love the new web articles page and I like the reader view a lot. No more pinch and zoom to read!
Health magazine app, I love it!!! 5/5
Easy to download any of my favorite magazines and purchase them by my apple account. It's so simple.
Does not work 1/5
Gets stuck in download. Contacted magazine. They gave suggestions that do not work. They have no idea what is going on.
Works fine for me 4/5
It downloaded fine and works great. Even on 3G.
App won't down load!!! 1/5
I have a subscription to Health & now I can't view it because I've been forced to a new app which won't down load. I don't like the changes Apple made to newsstand and the fact that my newsstand magazines are now limited to just the ones I own.....and now Health and a couple other magazine apps I have in newsstand are blacked out and I can't download new apps. I'm going to figure out how to cancel my subscriptions.😟
App won't download 1/5
By Miz G
This app has been stuck in update mode for days now.
Terrible support 1/5
Was working on my iPad for a year. Then my son bought a subscription for me so I didn't renew my original one. Now when I try to download a new edition it tells me I have full digital access but won't download the magazine. I've tried customer support but only get a message saying I have full digital access. Full circle stupidity. I've put in all the correct information for the new subscription, changed my password, deleted and reinstalled the app, nothing works. I can read my hard copy but I like to have the digital version when I travel, which is a lot.

If your interested health, you can't go wrong with this magazine. Good articles on all facets of health - Diet, Recipes, Exercise and the latest in medicine.
Health App doesn't work on IPhone 1/5
Agree with other reviews - this app is garbage.
Not able to access my magazine or create an account 1/5
I am unable to access my magazine. This app does not work on my iPad or iPhone. Not sure how to get help or a refund
The digital magazine access and access to customer support do not exist for iPad.
Not working! 1/5
It does not work on the iPad. Doesn't allow me to open now that I've purchased. I hit everywhere including settings and NOTHING works. Trying to get a refund
I use the app once in a while because I subscribe to the actual magazine which I find easier it
carry around than my iPad.
I purchased this last year thinking I could read it on my iPad. I never could figure it out so it was a waste of money. Now it's up for auto renewal and it won't even give me the option to cancel it.
Does NOT Work On iPad!!!! No app support!!! 1/5
I have contacted app support on several occasions to try and get this issue resolved. So far I have gotten ZERO!!!!!!!!!!
I cannot even download the app from the App Store!!!! Exasperated.
This is a waste of $$$. Really disappointed I let this piece of junk auto renew. I thought it was another magazine. One that I can actually read. I wish I could give it a negative score.
App doesn't work! 1/5
The app doesn't work
Follow up review 1/5
This is a follow up from last fall. Still one star. I said I would not return to Health, still stands. Once my subscriptions ends, I am finished with this magazine and app. I only ever managed to download one mag, after that I was offered the option ( when able) to download another for an additional fee of $4.99. No fear, I thought the idea of a prepaid subscription was to avoid individual charges. An email of complaint didn't work. I was told to be patient. I think enough time has passed to work out kinks.
This is a great App. 5/5
I like the content of this app very much. The magazine covers all of the health and fitness questions I typically need answered and the information and images are appealingly presented. The content shows up on my iPhone easily.
Good content, horrid digital layout 2/5
I really like the content of Health magazine. Great articles, tips, and recipes. But they totally failed in translating the content to a digital format. It's the exact same layout as the print magazine which doesn't work well on a small screen. They need to go back and reformat their content to work for iOS. Please hire some digital editors designers to help readers have a better experience. I'd rather read the print copy than this app version.
Love it! 5/5
By Moose J
I love Health magazine anyway, but even more now that I can get the digital version on my iPad. Thanks Health mag for an awesome magazine and app!

Great App. 4/5
By My Cat's Slave
I like being able to access Health issues on my IPad and to review past articles whenever I want.
Lacks diversity 3/5
Ok magazine, would be nice if they were more diverse with who they out in the cover - tired if seeing Bethany being featured!!
By Linda Voliva
Will not be renewing this subscription! Too slow to load magazine. Content not that great either. Very disappointed.
Love It more 5/5
I love the magazine, but really love the magazine in this app form. Great to enjoy and iPad screen save makes it easy to electronically clip articles
Don't water your time or money 1/5
By THEA SCALISE
Worst app ever. Need to reload every month to buy magazine. Now I've pId for the magazine and app won't download.
Very good 5/5
By Su Dere
It is a very good app.
Love this app 5/5
I don't have to worry with recycling. Love it!
By Online Geek
Great magazine. Have been reading the print version for a few years. REALLY appreciate the opportunity to see it online. This should save a forest if not a fortune! :-)
By Richter Bondart
ok to read.
Love wellness 4/5
I love the articles and recipes. Great magazine.
Worked great for me 4/5
By 2 many tasks 2 little time
I read some of the other reviews but I had no trouble downloading and reading. Don't let the negative review stop you from giving it a try. One suggestion, make sure you check the settings in the account you create. I had to re-download several issues.
Love the Mag, but since last night it is still downloading. I was only able to read a couple pages.....
Doesn't work 1/5
I just bought an issue to read on a flight and it won't download. Annoying!
The actual magazine 4/5
Finally! An app that shows you the whole magazine if you have a subscription. Not just the articles and pictures they think are important. Awesome.
Worthless app 1/5
I just renewed this subscription & it's not showing the July or August issues. I want my money back!!!!!!
Where is my AUGUST issue??? 1/5
Already took my money but where is the issue I have paid for??
Losing it 1/5
Keep having to resubscribe every month and renown load
cannot download current issue July. August almost here!
Purchases getting erased 1/5
This application doesn't seem to work at all. It seems to be dead. The purchases just get erased.
Difficult to download issues. Purchased in April and still having challenges. This is one app that does not replace magazine subs. Hate recycling so will persevere,
Doesn't work 1/5
I tried to subscribe to 3 magazines... None worked:(
By Yarbear 4678990
Easy to use and great way to read this great magazine
Tablet edition 1/5
I have had a Health subscription for a very long time and was very excited when the tablet version became available. Imagine my disappointment when there is always an issue when I try to download the new issue. I had a Nook and switched to an iPad. I've lost all my previous issues and cannot download new issues. When I contacted customer service for Health, I got directions on how to "hard boot" my iPad. That is not the problem--I have 2 other magazines that load every month. Health is sitting on the bookshelf and I cannot open it. Do not like the Health app.
I gave one star because I had to.
Don't Waste Your Money 1/5
By Love stinks 42
I never could download last month's issue. Now the magazine isn't even on my newsstand.
This is a great app but sometimes not so easy to access/update to the current issue. More a login problem than anything to do with Health magazine...
Health magazine 1/5
I downloaded the May issue and read it but now I can't download the June issue. what's going on?
