Like clock work the app has once again block use. Support is non existent, you pay and maybe you will be able to read, I have fought this buggy and unsupported app for the last time. Requested a refund which is not expected as is any reply from “customer support”
As the entire world goes digital, Hemmings seems to have decided to go backwards. The app is a dead end. Asks you to allow them to send you updates and there is nothing to the app - a single picture of an old car, and that’s it - nothing to click. It’s just dead.
I have an active subscription but can not download issues. Apple won’t refund, they just send me to Hemmings. Hemmings only answered one of my emails. They told me to click the cash button and to contact Apple if I wasn’t happy and wanted a refund. There isn’t a cash button but my emails saying so were ignored. Catch 22 with the companies pointing the fingers at each other. I’m a long time customer and very disappointed in the almost total lack of support from Hemmings. This is a great magazine but I don’t recommend paying to not be able to read it :(
Having absorbed my older brother's "Motor Trend"s as automobile reading material and then quickly adding subscriptions to "Car & Driver" along with "Road & Track" all 5 years before I had my drivers license ("Car Life"came later but stopped publishing all too soon), it was apparent to my family & friends that I was infatuated with 4 wheeled vehicles. 50 years later and still infatuated, I'm looking for that special '69 Charger to replace the one that was stolen in '74 and/or a '66 or '67 Riviera because they are drop dead gorgeous and the epitome of the '60s personal luxury cars. "Hemming's Classic Car" is like those cars: the best of its genre; has a great group of writers and puts out a magazine that's always well worth the money. And the delivery with the app is quick and complete. My only wish is for more. Perhaps more material per issue or more issues per year by having some special edition issues on makes and/or types such as "Postwar Woodies" or "Mopar Wagons, 1955 to 1975" or something like "The 1967 to 1974 Muscle Car (Ponycar, Corvette/Cobra, etc.) Wars".
Works great on my Air 2. Issues download quickly and display quickly as well. I can flip thru pages as speedily as I could with a paper magazine. I can choose whether to download issues or not and whether to retain them on my iPad or delete once I've read them. So what more do I need? The rest of the Hemmings magazine apps work equally well.
If you are a subscriber to Hemmings Classic Car magazine and you opt for the digital subscription this app is awesome. I can download complete issues, zoom in the articles and photos and enjoy my editions like never before. Not sure why others have difficulties but it works on my iPad2 and iPad4. The resolution is outstanding.
Apple is sending alerts that this app should be updated in order to keep working. Slowness in loading is frustrating; Top Gear, Consumer Reports load fast, so you can start reading much sooner. John, subscriber for many years.
I love HCC, but this app has been frozen.up during the loading of the latest issue, and will not let me peruse any of my purchased issues. And I much prefer the format of the Zinio app for reading periodicals.
