Either Adweek hasn’t released a new issue in 2 months or the app isn’t updated. It shows you articles on the website instead of an article in the app. But the kicker is that it asks you to log in to the website even when you’re already logged into the app. And the cherry on top is that the website (which you’re viewing in the app) suggests that you open the article in the app. You can’t make this up.
Subscribed and canceled within about 5 minutes. Despite signing up for a subscription with my iTunes account, there is content I can’t access without paying. Also, so many articles require your login to access it—IN THE APP THAT YOUVE ALREADY LOGGED INTO. And then, it doesn’t even recognize your login—there needs to be basic integration with your Apple ID on the Adweek side. This is basic stuff any competent development agency or team would do, but seems like the publisher opted for the bargain bin price.
This app needs to be removed from the App Store. It’s terribly designed and ineffectual at best and flat out fraud at worst. You can pay for a subscription but it still locks you out of content. You click on an article and it takes you to the safari version of the article where it asks you to login again. And then it says you don’t have access again anyway.
I have never been able to read an entire article without the app crashing. I’ve also only been able to open an issue once or twice without the app crashing. It’s terrible. You would think a publication giving people advice on things like mobile would be able to figure this out...
App Broken - do NOT buy a membership through the app
I paid for a year subscription through the app and was not given a login or any way to access the content. Even worse when calling AdWeek they could not help and I had to go through an ordeal with Apple to process the refund and unsubscribe to something I paid for but never was granted access to.
I’m logged in and a subscriber… the easiest way to actually read it on the go is in TINY PDF format which still has share buttons - that only share links to the app… I expect more from a digital magazine trying to reach marketers.
This app is essentially useless unless you pay for the content or subscribe. Even the free articles end of taking you to some event sign up or trying to sell you something else. To be honest for being an ad magazine you do a relatively poor job at making the app user-friendly and the content engaging.
Subscribing through the App Store isn’t recognized by the app. App tries to force you to subscribe again and pay more. The app is a browser within a browser and not a real app. It is absolutely awful and a complete farce. I called their help line, they said to cancel the subscription and subscribe directly with Adweek.
Need a new Dev team. This app is a hodge podge between a dated magazine-style version that does not properly accept logins, and a browser view into their website. Very poor experience that desperately needs to be updated to current app standards.
1. I have a subscription but still get ads? Not cool. 2. Again, I have a subscription but have to log in EVERY time I want to read a full article. Have me log in ONCE, that should open all content. NOT cool. 3. Clicking the big ADWEEK logo at the top of the app takes me out of the app and into a browser web page? NOT COOL. 4. When in an article in the app, clicking the menu then choosing a topic in that menu takes me out of the app and into a browser web page? NOT COO...forget it.
The App doesn’t recognize my Adweek subscription. Continues to claim that it’s not valid. Customer Service only tells me the steps on how to log in. And when they don’t have a solution, they tell me that to talk to “iTunes.”
I would have to say this is the worst experience I have ever had with an application in my life. I paid for a subscription and still could not access the content on the app. Makes me fell like my money isn’t enough for you... pathetic.
The app can't even rotate horizontally...at this point in the game what is keeping them from basic features?! Content is always superb but i wish when I had my iPad in it's keyboard position like it is most of the time (in class, in-between classes) that the images / content would flip to its horizontal position. Hopefully it's an easy fix we'll see soon!
I loved this app at first, great content & features but now I can only access the content if I'm connected to wifi, which is ridiculous for a digital magazine I've tried opening the app before I leave a wifi zone but as soon as I'm outside the range then it crashes I've paid good money for content that I can only access a percentage of the time
I paid for a subscription and have the emailed receipt but cannot download or restore even after deleting and reinstalling. I called AdWeek and they disavowed any connection with this app. The woman who answered the phone at the number given in the app FAQ said it isn't AdWeek's app and there isn't anyone else to talk to, no developer email address no support.
This is an Adobe Digital Publishing App. Should pay for it then begin downloading the current edition. Not the case with this one. Called Adweek and they point the finger at Apple. And of course the is no one at Apple you can talk to, but they can ding your credit card right away. DON'T buy this app until they fix it.
The app API doesn’t actually interface with AdWeek’s servers! You pay Apple $99.99 and get nothing. You are constantly asked to subscribe and log in. Who developed this app, scammers? You call AdWeek and they tell you that you have to subscribe through their site. So, I decided to register directly with AdWeek to access the content. I paid a second time. However, the AdWeek website isn’t much better if accessing content via the iPhone. It continually asks you to subscribe for content. I AM SUBSCRIBED! Wow, they must have the worst Dev/IT team on the planet. Their tech team must be the rejects from everyone else. Contact them directly and they will try to throw a bunch of BS tech jargon at you, and tell you to sign up again. I have been doing IT for 30 years, you cannot bullsh** me! The App never has the most recent content. What is up with that? AdWeek, the keyword is WEEK here folks, not biweekly or monthly. Love their content when I can see it. You would think that they would have a great tech division in this day and age. Nope. The app is terrible!!!
