App + Subscription = Money Gone 1/5
This app does not allow you to view issues if you purchase a subscription. How this is allowed I am not sure, but I got robbed of my money. I’d expect a refund but there is no way to get it. Utter thievery.
DO NOT BUY! 1/5
Ever since the last upgrade, I have been unable to restore my library; I am unable to download new issues
Terrible will not renew
I paid for the year subscription , but After 2 issues, it doesn't recognize my subscription. I've tried restoring, and reinstalling but it doesn't work. DONT SUBSCRIBE TO THIS. it's a rip off
Maxim app horrid 1/5
Does not work well at all. Can't get the current issue ever.
It's a scam 1/5
By Fletch F. Fletch
Great publication, but the app is indeed a SCAM. You don't get your issues, the app support is a dead link. This is literally a scam. I wasted money on a year long subscription. Don't get SWINDLED too. It's insane that Apple continues to allow this app to continue to be listed.
AVOID THIS APP! Look at the other reviews! We all got ripped off.
Impossible to restore purchase 1/5
Impossible to restore back purchases on new iPad
Doesn't Work 1/5
I've had a subscription for years but I can only access two months prior and before. It's like I'm on a delay. My subscription is still active, for now at least.
Missing issues 1/5
At one time this app was fine. Issues came aboard no problem. Now not only are we missing the newest Feb issue as its March already, but the older issues I bought are not available for download. I'm canceling my subscription with apple
I would rate the app lower than 1 star. Still unable to download new issues. But they are really good about taking your money
Rip off 1/5
By Not a roll model
Bought a year's subscription and still get charged monthly to download. Apple says I have to contact the app developer and they don't respond to emails.
Update: they now respond but don't actually fix anything, just string you along. Still spent money and got nothing for it.
Terrible. I've had Maxim from the beginning. Now they're trying to charge me every time there's a new issue, even though I am currently subscribed . My subscription is due for renew in 2018. Maxim can't help me, and Apple can't help me.
You won't get what you pay for. Don't buy on iTunes 1/5
I used iTunes to buy and PAID for a 1 YEAR Subscription. I was billed for ONE YEAR, and they received MY money. For that I
received ONE ISSUE, and when it was time to get the second issue, it would not let me download it without buying it again.
When I tried to lodge a complaint I get nothing back but I stupid automated response.
Yes, I have tried to recover option and it does not work at all.
Yes, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and that doesn't work either.
It would be really nice if someone responded with the genuine response and corrected the problem instead of the BS you get from a tree of automated "customer (lack of service) that you get from this app and iTunes.
If I have it my way I will never buy another subscription or a book of any kind from iTunes again.
iTunes Subscription Broken 1/5
The new app looks cool, but I don't subscribe for cool looking apps, I subscribe through iTunes so I can read Maxim on my iPad. If that doesn't work, not sure why I subscribe to Maxim.
Updated 6/13/2017 unsubscribed as I am continually losing access to magazines that I pay for.
Not worthy of a star 1/5
New issues don't load. App needs a lot of work. Take $20 and throw it in the garbage. Total joke of an App.
Still Doesn't Work Right 2/5
Will download issues in my iPhone but not my iPad. No customer service or support to speak of regardless of wether you're an iTunes or digital subscriber. Maxim and Apple need to get their proverbial s**t together on this one otherwise, why am I paying for a subscription?
Update did not restore my current issues or past issues 1/5
This update is broken does not fix or update my subscription I now have 0 issues in my account nothing restored app is still broken I will not renew my subscription I can get paper versions much easier and no aggravation with them.
No more video's 1/5
I had purchased 2 magazines, before with great layout and increadible content which had interactive video's which I thought was a great beginning to viewing online magazines! But then, something went wrong, and the new magazine is without videos and can not be accessed by my IPhone 7 Plus 256g (a Ferrari of a phone)!! Please fix, so my recent purchase as well as my old purchases on ITunes will give me the original content with Video as before!! Also, the way the pages and sections where displayed before is superior to how it is now, a simple Adobe acrobat file!! Please bring back old layout to include videos!!
Needs fixing 1/5
I purchased an issue & everytime I try to open the content, it Never loads properly. Definitly Needs to be fixed
FRAUD! Worst customer service experience to date! 1/5
Subscribed for a year could never download issues and then when I finally was able to get a few on my ipad they updated app and deleted my issues. I contacted Maxim customer service and they basically said there was nothing they could do for me.
I demanded a full refund or a new active 1 year subscription and instead of apologizing for the inconvenience and hassle and reactivating my subscription they have given me the run around and never provided me with the services/digital magazine that I paid for which essentially is business fraud...offering a product...taking payment for said product and not actually providing the product!
Worst customer service experience to date!
An Absolute Joke & Total Ripoff 1/5
Does not work and hasn't for months now. Run away as fast as you can. Don't bother contacting them because they just don't care!!!
Won't Restore Purchases / Accept My Current Subscription 1/5
I will be refunding my subscription through my credit card and will never subscribe to Maxim again. This app took 2 months to display the current issue, and won't accept my subscription or restore my previous purchases. So my subscription is now useless and I can't even read one issue. Wish I could give this app zero stars.
Worse Service 1/5
The new Maxim App is the worse in the market.
With the new upgrade I lost all my old PAID issues, i called Maximum support 5 times and they are completely lost. They told me SORRY management made de choice to remove the old issues.. we paid for the issues and is ilegal for Maxim to take what we paid out with out our approval, this is totally agains the law..
I suggest they fix this problem as soon as posible or it will be heavy legal action against Maxim. Overall I think this guys are done with this crappy magazine...
Is all comercial adds and crapy stories....
By The Cory yes it's true
Sad excuse for customer service or an app. Perhaps the digital age just isn't your thing Maxim.
App Upgrade 1/5
By SI Follower
Upgrade long overdue but poorly executed and deployed...emails to Customer Support go unanswered 👎.
New app, lost issues! 2/5
You finally upgrade the app and now I have lost half of my issues. Restore does nothing and contacting support has resulted in no response at all. Fix the problems and improve your customer service. I would have given only 1 star, but I am giving you the benefit of the doubt. Make this right...
Fix it ! 1/5
All previously owned content lost with last update; "tech support" and "contact us" do not respond to help requests.
Avoid this app 1/5
Pay your money for a subscription and get nothing. No issues nothing.
Issues will not restore 1/5
Issues disappeared. Will not restore. Apple says contact maxim app support- of course link doesn't work. Both apple & maxim should be ashamed. Would give zero stars if I could. This would make a good class action suit.
Please Fix!! 1/5
It's been days, and none of us paying subscribers can access any old/new issues since your latest update. How this sort of basic member issue is not tested before release is JUST DUMB.
I have cancelled my subscription, I don't use the application much, but when I do I expect to see what I have downloaded.
Doesn't work I need a refund 1/5
I can't even see my old issues and I've already been charged for a whole new year so I want a refund!!!
Fix This! 1/5
App finally updated, twice! New issues appear, but will not restore my previous, nor my present issues. I payed for all of this, but I am slighted by not being able to view what I payed for. Until this is fixed, 1 star is all I will give. This needs to be fixed as soon as possible!
Most recent update removed all downloaded magazines and will not sync to my iTunes subscription to reenable my downloads. Terrible update.
Missing issues 1/5
I have had a digital subscription for a couple years, yet the issues have stop coming. I cannot restore issues. I even tried deleting and restarting the app and it is not working. Please fix this!!!
Don't do it 1/5
Very disappointing. I downloaded the app and paid for the subscription and only got one issue. Emailed Maxim about the problem and they emailed me back asking me for more money to extend the current subscription that was even working.
NOT VALID - DO NOT PURCHASE SUBSCRIPTION 1/5
Subscriptions are not being honored. No valid contact for developer. Website for App Support does not exist "404 error"
This is a fake app.
Missing issues 1/5
By Jefe Blanco
I am still missing the Feb and March issues of the magazine that I have paid for. They are available on other online magazine readers why not thru the publisher. No customer service to contact. It's totally not on Apple it's not their app and they aren't responsible for updating the content. MAXIM GET IT TOGETHER ASAP
No Feb 2017 update 1/5
Cancelled since no update anymore.
Won't Send New Issues 1/5
Total waste of money. The February issue has been on the stands for a month and no digital version through the app. No refund, either, despite what they say on their website. Maxim is total crap.
What's the big effing Deal? 1/5
Took my money....
Maxim, or Apple, or both have stolen $16.00 from me. They lured me in with fancy cars and scantily clad women, promised me a product, then.... They take my money and cant even give me the courtesy to explain why. I usually like to wear lipstick if you're going to f**k me.
Hello?! Maxim! 1/5
It's almost March...Y U no have February issue on the app yet?
Would Like No stars here 1/5
Had issue issue that Dec/Jan 2017 issue was the last issue that was available...contacted Maxim..they indicated that my subscription was canceled! Which I did not cancel...it seems that Apple is canceling subscriptions....not cool Cook
Troubles at Maxim? 1/5
Finally read other reviews as I've been wondering what's wrong with app. Maxim sure didn't mind continuing to bill my subscription while their app is broken. Contact Apple and they'll refund subscription fees and can cancel the subscription renewal.
Sad. Always was a faithful Maxim reader...
Terrible App 1/5
Rarely if ever updates, just terribly managed... supposed to come with subscription. Guess Maxim doesn't really care about their subscription base!
Can't log in or get the newest issue 1/5
First when I was subscribing I wanted to get the paper subscription but for some reason the page refreshed and switched me to the digital. That's all fine until I download this house fire of a app. No February issue and also I can't even log in. I tried to email support but it's been 3 days and all I've got is a computer generated email. Fix the app, refund my money or send me the real magazine.
Very Disappointing 1/5
I am seriously thinking of ending my subscription here and getting the Maxim mag via Zinio which seems to be this and many of the newest issues weeks before. Very disappointing.
Where is the February issue? 1/5
The subscription charge was done perfectly on time, but that doesn't happen the same way for releasing the new issues. I already saw the Feb issue published in Zinio since 3 weeks, but still pending for the paid subscribers. Way to reward loyal customers...
App no longer works in iOS 10 1/5
App no longer starts up. Begins to and then freezes. Cannot view past purchases.
By Jj Kearny
Not free. Useless app
Stops working 1/5
Try to open a magazine it just freezes and closes the app this is bs.
