Can’t access my subscription and no help from Eating Well 1/5
I just spent 45 minutes on the phone with both Apple Support and Eating Well support trying to get 3 years worth of digital subscriptions restored on the new app. Finally was told to email Meredith apps at Ziniopro (nope no phone number to call). If I can’t restore my old subscriptions that’s $180 worth of magazines that I no longer have access to. The responses the developers have given to other people are all the steps I have already followed. What a rip off this app is. EW Magazine used to b e a wonderful publication and it’s such a shame to see it going totally downhill.
Update, I have not gotten access to any of my subscription. After sending an email I received a response saying in 24-48 hours I would have access. Tried again 24 and 48 hours later nd still received the same error message. I responded to their email explaining it still wasn’t working and included a screenshot of the error message. They responded with the same form email they originally sent me saying I would get access in 24-48 hours. So apparently, I’m now in a Kafka novel. So sad to see such a wonderful publication taken don by such a terrible app development team.
Not user friendly 1/5
Will not allow to down new issues, even though the have iTunes account, it wants me to sign in with some other account access or pay 4.99, already payed for the year very poor service.
Going to speak with iTunes to cancel account. Keeps wanting to enter email and password, again it is an iTunes account.
Thank you for your response, but we canceled the iTunes subscription.
Can’t open issues iTunes subscribers 1/5
New update has. NO WORKING LOGIN FOR MY ITUNES based subscription. ‘RESTORE’ purchases does not work! Cannot even open previously purchased or downloaded issues. New interface is cluttered. ALL BOOKMARKED/STARRED recipes from 4+ years are GONE! YOU IDIOTS! Login Instructions on app, email responses, and from developer in reviews here are wrong, the idiots don’t have correct info and the poorly designed app has misnamed the login options. I figured it out, but it was against all logic and the app instructions.
All screwed up 1/5
I can’t see any magazine. It keeps saying that my email is not correct.. I have years of magazines I can’t access...massive piece of crap app
EatingWell/ Cooking Light 1/5
So Cooking Light ceased publication and those of us with a print and digital subscription are now getting Eating Well. So why has the Cooking Light app disappeared. Every time an app is updated the subscriber has to download each issue again. I have at least a dozen issues that I can not download because the app is no longer available. As for the Eating Well app - I installed it and was able to download the January issue but if I want the March issue I am given the option to buy it. The account information for my Eating Well app also has an email address I haven’t used in years and there is no option to change it. I find Eating Well visually difficult to read and will not be renewing my subscription. I just want to be able to download my old issues of Cooking Light. So I got a response from the Zinio app people who basically said “sorry but you can’t access your past issues of Cooking Light - the magazine is no longer being published so we disabled the app”. Guess who won’t be purchasing any of their publications in the future.
Can not restore issues 1/5
By Maui Marsha
New app version is bad. Can not restore my past issue and cannot get my new issues as well. Help.
Could not be worse 1/5
I have not been able to login, how can any magazine hire Meredith to do their new app without testing it previously!! I have problems with People, Food and Wine & EatingWell and all three magazines committed the exact same error to hire Meredith for their new app. They should have stayed with the old app which worked perfectly!
Developed last century 1/5
This app is by far the worst one I have ever used. I’m still trying to sign on and it’s a nightmare. You have to remember a 10 number account because it does not let you paste in the field. Or you have to go into one of their bills to pit your address exactly as it appears there or else it won’t let you in. The interface is straight from the 90’s although I remember sites from that time that were better designed for navigation than this.
Was my favorite magazine at one time 1/5
This magazine was my most favorite at one time.
I was so excited to see it available in the App Store. The content is not as good as it once was and it’s simply a static digital magazine. I can’t save or mark up recipes. plus I can’t figure out how to cancel it so it seems I’m stuck paying for something I no longer want
Behind the times. 3/5
This app does not have links from the TOC to the articles, nor can you share articles, even to one's own email or other personal repository, and there is no way to store favorite recipes or articles.
I like the range of recipes, but that is more about the magazine than about the app.
Great Recipes 5/5
I love the Eating Well app. Almost every month I get a recipe that's a keeper. My husband is a picky eater so I am grateful to find recipes that are nutritious and tasty!
Love the magazine, not so much the app 2/5
I'm long time fan of Eating Well Magazine, because one of the best cooking magazines around.
I was very excited to get the electronic version of the magazine, but this app has been a great disappointment.
There is no index, you can't search, you can't send yourself recipes, you can't copy and paste into a recipe manager, ...
It's hard to imagine, but this iPad version is actually harder to use than the paper magazine. I'll stick with it for now, because I've already paid for the subscription. But I hope future versions of the app can overcome these obvious inadequacies.

I have enjoyed your recipes in this magazine for3 years. They are easy to follow and seldom fail to please our palate. I especially enjoy the app version on my iPad . Keep the goodness coming.
Useless - a great product ruined. 1/5
I re-upped my old subscription and downloaded the app so that I could access Eating Well's library of excellent recipes. Nope, it's just the current issue. And the website is so clogged with ads and pop ups it's impossible to use. A great product totally ruined.
Love this magazine ! 5/5
This is my favorite magazine - great articles and recipes!
Love taking my iPad to the food store with the entire magazine at my disposal.
No iPhone version 1/5
There is no iPhone version. Can't find it on my iPhone. What use is it if I cannot look at recipes while shopping. Canceling it.
Like pictures, text to small to read :( 3/5
The recipes look really good. Beautiful pictures. Sadly the text is to small for me to read.

Delete app 1/5
Didn't prove to be an useful app so I deleted it.
Not very user friendly 2/5
Cannot click on something in table of contents and go there. No print or email options in recipes. Cannot save individual recipes, must save whole page. Not worth $9.99.
Print subscriber hosed again.
