It does not work 1/5
I love the Fortune magazine. I have been subscribed for most of the last 20 years and then it with me to assignments around the world. I just cannot understand that a company that lives by telling us the trends of the modern world, just do not seem to get digital. I decided to come back to the magazine with some of their recent communications on the new platform. I subscribed from my phone and that application seems to work great.
Next, I came to my iPad Pro and the horror story started. The iPhone app does not properly resize for the iPad. I had not seen that experience since the very beginnings of the iPad. Then I found this app. It just does not recognize my user id and password (the very same that works on the iPhone app).
Sincerely, I do not get why you cannot have one single app with an adaptable interface...
Why are you not fixing the app? 1/5
There are clearly multiple complaints about the the functionality of the app. Issues that people have subscribed and paid money for are not available in the app. The restore option does not work!
Never got April issue 1/5
By thruhiker wannabe
I have an iTunes subscription. Never could view the April issue. Sent a message to Fortune and they said I had to submit a complaint to iTunes. Of course iTunes never replied and I’m not even sure they got my request. Now the May issue is out and I can view it, but still it wants me to buy the April issue to view that one (I am not a new subscriber).
This app is a waste of time. Completely impossible for a print subscriber to log in. Not ready for prime time.
Why do we have to wait for digital? 2/5
Why don’t you provide access to digital on or before the 1st of the month?
The most archaic app I’m aware of 1/5
By Neb Petrovački
When will the new app become available? Latest news section shows me Trump visit to DMZ that happened over a year ago?! Local business journal’ app has more interactive reading experience. I wonder if Mr. Leaf or anybody in the editorial staff tries this app ever? Gone are the days of video articles, tagged digital pages and all other app features commonly available for at least ten years. Complete embarrasment
So much for the new Fortune experience 1/5
I am a print and digital subscriber that has never been able to log into the app. I reached to support and they weren’t able to help. This has been going on ever since Meredith bought them. I keep seeing ads about the great new Fortune app, website, and magazine. I think they have some work to do on the customer experience part.
Wouldn’t recognize account 1/5
Have account, but can’t login
Not Consistent 1/5
By GT COS
Every month my subscription is not synced & the app wants me to pay for the issue even though I am a subscriber.
Agree with reviewer 26 January 1/5
I’ve subscribed for 35 years.
The app used to work beautifully- now it’s impossible to download new issues. And it crashes. Can’t even login half the time.
Calling the 800 number is useless.
I will not be renewing my print edition next renewal cycle.
Cannot download the digital version! 1/5
I cannot download the latest edition of the magazine as the app is not recognizing my subscription. I have logged out multiple times, logged back and still cannot download the magazine!
Terrible to download the current magazine 2/5
I have done all the possibilities to download the jul magazine, but in my labs just the olders....couldn’t believe this app...
Worst App. It doesn’t work. 1/5
By reviewing from the heart
It bugs down every time a magazine is released.
I have a subscription and never lets me read the new magazine. Always tries to make me buy it individually.
I call the customer services and they don’t know what to do. Send you all over the place and don’t solve your issue.
It just doesn’t work.
App doesn’t work as it should 1/5
By Jeff Gerth
With every new issue of the magazine I have to contact customer support to access the issue. Every time they respond, and I’m able to get the issue. But they refuse to acknowledge or fix the core problem, which is the need to contact them for every new magazine. Why don’t you address this .
Fortune magazine is brilliant ! 5/5
By The Albert' file
Thank you for all of the informations.
Great magazine! Such a rare gem nowadays in a world of fake news!
Way to go now and in the future!
Cannot click table of contents to get to article 4/5
The fact that I cannot click on toc list to get to an article is super archaic.
Issues don’t load properly. 3/5
Each issue is a problem. I have to contact customer support to download each issue. It is a pain.
Less than marginal 1/5
With the latest app I have write to technical support to download the current publication. I tried all of their recommendations from syncing to logging out and back in again and retrying a day or two later. For me the “improvements” to the customer experience is such an enhancement that I don’t get an opportunity to read what pay for. It’s frustrating as I have been a long time subscriber - it’s nearly as frustrating as my Sunset magazine subscription- there technical support does not exist, well they never respond to my email for help.
Page bookmark 3/5
It would be great if the app had a bookmark page
App Feedback 4/5
The app usually works great to navigate the magazine but it has not downloaded iTunes new issues multiple times which requires me to logout delete the app and restart. Eventually they come back but it’s annoying...my only app concern. Other than that it’s very well constructed...
Unable to access new issues 1/5
I have a valid subscription but cannot access new issues. Please fix
Don’t Download 1/5
Been a subscriber for a long time. This app is terrible...even the updated versions. Don’t waste your time with it. You would expect better from Fortune Magazine.
App experience is terrible 1/5
I’ve been a loyal reader of fortune for 20 years, however their app is terrible. Every month I run into issues downloading the current issue and have to communicate with their customer service multiple times. It baffles my mind that they can’t figure out in a digital world how to create even a mediocre customer experience. It’s beyond frustrating.
Download stops Haf way 1/5
How does a publisher put out an app which such poor system. All the advertisements download but none of the content!
Another update and another total failure , this is after paying for a digital subscription through Apple. What a waste.
Can’t log in 1/5
Like many others. I have print and digital but when I try to log in with email it says “we are experiencing problems, try later”. I have tried over a few days and same issue.
Not Working At All 1/5
Your recent update has left me with NO Digital magazine issue. I have done EXACTLY as you’ve instructed, over the past 3 days. Please. You need to take Responsibility & FIX IT.
Stay away - stay far far away 1/5
Update ——- Another update and locked out once again. The US postal service could do a better job of putting together an app for this magazine. Can’t login. I’m just a digital subscriber so I don’t have an account number. Enter my email address and it says user does not exist. Can someone in upper management read these comments so someone else could get fired — this shouldn’t be that difficult.
Previous comments ——-
Avoid the disappointment of multiple issues with this app. Have a yearlong subscription and cannot download the newest month. Re login and restore purchases - none of it works. Trying to find a number for customer service —- good luck. The issues with this app continue to amaze me.
App doesn’t work!! 1/5
Despite following your instructions to enter email or account number (I tried both!), it says it has no record of me...even though your customer service page can find me and ask me to renew my subscription. And having the same problem with my People subscription. What a customer service disaster - bring back the old app.
No access 1/5
Frequently can’t access my subscription.
Can’t login with my Apple store subscription.... 1/5
So now I can’t use the magazine and here I am at the airport hoping to have something to read...
Can’t log in with new app update 1/5
Zinio update has completely messed up my login. Tried to log in per their instructions, but they have an email for me that I’ve never used. When I called the magazine itself, they have my correct email. Now how can I log in using an email that doesn’t exist and a password that’s not linked to it?
Problem after problem after problem 1/5
By gerald is frustrated
Do not get this app. It never works and constantly causes frustration and problems. It’s too bad that a decent magazine makes its paying readers use such a worthless product to access their content.
I can no longer access my previous editions on my different devices.
Another Failed App Update 1/5
This is at least the third time this has happened. App updates and I don’t have access. I have a digital subscription only. Error says my user does not exist. Same user I have used for years.
New app does not work ... 1/5
I can no longer access Fortune Magazine subscription. Another in a long series of issues with their IOS app. Thinking Forbes might be a more reliable option.
Can’t access issues when offline 1/5
Since I upgraded to their new app, I can’t access any issues unless I’m connected to WiFi. Frustrating.
February Issue 1/5
Can’t download the February issue. Spoke to customer service numerous times. Deleted the app and re-downloaded and still no success.
Zero rating 1/5
Incompetent and customer hating organization. I called customer service on January 25 to complain that I couldn’t open the February issue. The customer service rep explained that of course not, it wasn’t February yet.
What incompetence. What does it say about a business magazine that is so bad at it’s own business? I’ve also sent several emails to no avail.
If I could rate this a zero, I would.
What a disappointment 1/5
I’ve been a subscriber to the print version of Fortune for almost 40 years. Have been questioning the value of renewing my subscription each year it has come due over the past couple of years as the content has gone steadily downhill. While traveling, having the ability to download and read via this app was always one positive. Now they’ve taken an app that was easy to use and performed flawless, and made it impossible to use. Will definitely not be renewing my subscription when it expires.
Cant dowloand new issue (even though it is paid for...) 1/5
Why complicate what is working? Why not try a new app update beofre launching it ? So basic...everytime you update it it’s the same problems.. i tried already to restore my purchases and get access to the New magazine, but i only get the preview...even though i have an annual subscriptions with many months till expiration....you will lose (another) client...so frustrating...
February 2019 issue won’t download 1/5
This app was working decently (except it doesn’t remember between sessions where in the magazine I left off, which is really annoying) until recently when I can’t access the latest issue. The app confirms I have a subscription through Sept 2019, but nothing will get the issue to unlock. Reinstalled the app, restored purchases multiple times, etc. This may be it for me and Fortune...
Can no longer download issues 1/5
And customer service is zero help. Fix the app!
So disappointed 1/5
They took something that was simple and worked, and thought of every possible way to make it frustrating and unusable.
Can’t buy subscriptions in app 1/5
Everywhere the text asks to choose a subscription option there are no actual options, it only gives you the option to pay $7 for a single digital copy. 1 star because a company this size should not have issues with something so simple.
Don’t Waste Your Time 1/5
The app is awful. Requires logging in all the time. Loses your place. The older version was simple to use.
App Not Working 1/5
The App freezes up and doesn’t work
Experience degrading with each app update 1/5
New app update is terrible. I am stuck at the Welcome to Fortune page. None of the links work! It’s like clicking on a photograph.
The app and experience is degrading with each update. I just need a mode where I can read a static downloaded version of the magazine offline.
If it’s broken why break it more 1/5
This app gets worse with every update. It was better 5 years ago. I have been a reader for almost 10 years and took to the digital version early, but the app is so bad now I don’t know if it is worth keeping my subscription. It rarely works well when offline, even when I have downloaded the issue. Now it wants me to sign in AGAIN but when I do it just goes to a frozen white screen that never goes away.
