Magazine did not download
Signed up for trial subscription but, rec’d msg from App Store saying I had the trial subscription and would start being charged in 1 week unless I cancel before then. One small problem — no issue downloaded. I’ve reported the problem & will write an updated review if this ever gets resolved. 🙂 Update: So far so good. The developer was VERY quick to figure out my problem & give me directions for getting my first issue to download. Problem solved in less than 24 hours, which I think is pretty fast for this sort of thing. I’ve only had this one issue to look at so far, but everything seems to be working well.

Digital Subscription Will Not Download To My IPad
Usually web support has quickly responded to my issues with the app and there have been many but resolved same day. Now my digital subscription will not properly download on my iPad. States it is downloaded but when you open it all the pages are blank. It will download to my iPhone but at 71 years of age it is not easy to read. Three days have passed since I contacted app support and it has been total silence. I usually renew for 6 months but if web support is nonexistent then it is time to leave. Hope others have better luck than I have with this app Post Script. Tech support emailed and in a matter of minutes fixed the problem. Thanks to the support staff. Thanks, again

Magazine refuses to download anymore on iPad app
I am a longtime loyal customer, and I recently renewed my direct print+digital subscription for an entire year. Ever since forking over the latest batch of my hard-earned money, the digital issues have stopped showing up on my iPad app; only the print issues are being delivered, which do not help me much since i travel so much and so prefer reading the digital editions on flights and in hotels. I do not see any content in my App Library (even after multiple syncs), and I have also deleted, downloaded, and logged out/in of the app multiple times. I sent in a complaint via the app a few weeks ago, and still haven’t heard back. If I do not get any resolution within a week, I will be forced to cancel my subscription.

Decent App, But Bugs Threaten to Derial
I like the People app overall, but too often little bugs get in the way of enjoyment. PEOPLE needs to get these fixed so they’re not a hassle.

Digital Subscription Not Recognizing on IPad
I’ve had a digital subscription for almost a year and being able to access my subscription through the app is very appealing to me. However, recently my IPad has stopped recognizing my digital subscription and when I try to access an issue, the app seems to think that I should pay for each issue…which has become VERY annoying. And to top it off, this isn’t the first time I’ve had this problem! Ugh! I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, I’ve synced my library, I’ve restored my purchases, and Iast week I reached out to support (with no response). Nothing has fixed the issue and this is my last straw. Thanks People magazine, but it’s time to say goodbye.

Issues not downloading
This is the second time in less than 6 months my issues aren’t downloading and my subscription is current. I’ve tried using the digital contact form but it won’t work without subscription number from mailed magazine. With the app there is no subscription number given and digital form won’t go further without this number. When I talked to Apple support, they suggested I cancel subscription. But there is no guarantee of refund and I want my issues. Where do I go from here?

Missing Magazines and No Response for Assistance
I have been a digital subscriber for about 10 years. This is my 3rd time for missing issues on my iPad. The first two times with immediate response and resolve. This time it has been a week and have not resolved my issue. All three times, I have performed all trouble shooting suggestions ( refresh, updated app, force sync, restore purchases, etc). All of which has not resolve all issues. Am very frustrated and will request for refund due to me and will cancel subscription. From, A very disappointed reader

App constantly closes
I love the magazine but wish the app would stop closing on me after a few pages. I haven’t seen any updates to the app in over a year and clearly there is a bug. I don’t always have internet so like to download and read at a later date. Frustrating! I’ve seen others complain about this same issue and are asked to Why not just fix it or tell us all how to?

Serious app issues
I would love to give this app a great review but I just can’t…there always seams to be an issue with getting new issues every week even when you do have a subscription. And forget about getting a new device…your issues are veer restored even after trying to sync your library Please try to fix this issue, it’s not fair to subscribers who pay for a service and to not receive their magazines.

What has happened?
I love this magazine and I love even better having it digital. The last few weeks , every time I open the app it just spins. I have to delete the app and install again. Then it will work... until the next time I try to open it. I am signing in every time now.. everything is up to date. I have read many reviews of theirs doing the same. If it doesn’t get worked out, I will have to cancel my subscription.

Access to online issues.
Before the new app you could read your current issue on Thursday night instead of having to wait until Friday. Should be one of the perks for online issues. Also have been a long time subscriber (over 30) and never get any specials like new subscribers get like tote bags, etc. Now I can’t get my current issue to load. Always something with this magazine!

For the last three weeks I haven’t been able to download my issues. I have tried deleting the app and then reinstalling it. That didn’t work and because I was behind a couple issues I can’t reload those to read. Keep getting error and that we are experiencing issues and to please try again later. Please fix the app issue that is causing this problem. Maybe I will go back to paper issues

If not used weekly you can’t get back in
More than once I have tried to get back into the app after not using it for a while because I mostly use read my paper issue. But sometimes the paper issue gets lost in the mail so I try to read my issue on the iPad. Every single time the app has me logged in but unable to access as if I was not a paying customer. This is very frustrating.

What the heck??? Can’t access anything!
What have you done to this app??? I’ve been subscribed to People and Entertainment Weekly through iTunes for years. Now that you’ve switched to Zinio, I am only given the option of purchasing my new weekly magazine. I have already PAID for these magazines but now can’t get to them. What is the answer here???? After I hit ‘restore purchases ‘ , NOTHING happens. Please advise as to how to get to my paid for magazines!

I so look forward to Fridays when I can indulge in a new weekly dose of People! This magazine has been a treat to me since it began. I read each issue from cover to cover. Thank you for such a pleasant escape.

Renew subscription
My subscription expired in Dec of 2022 and I have been trying to renew since then without success . I paid for the subscription through Discount Magazine on Feb 14 and never received any issues .I have been communicating with them ever since without success . ( they are telling me you are the problem ) Today I finally expressed enough displeasure to have them agree to cancel and return my payment . Now I have again tried to place an order but it seems all links end up with another order taking company but not People itself . How do I reorder directly ?

Outdated Version
I attempted to enter my People app and it tells me my version is outdated and to go to the App Store as a new version is available. I read People daily and update my apps constantly. When I go to the App Store there is no new version. I deleted the app and re-downloaded. It still tells me my version isn’t up to date.

Once again, missing issues
Have been a regular subscriber for a decade or more. My subscription automatically renews. Once again I am not seeing the latest issue and have attempted all the suggested solutions (refresh library, reboot iPad, reinstall the app) with no success. After reinstalling the app I’m now not seeing issues past January. Really really frustrating.

Very very worried 😟!!!
I’m a People subscriber since a very long time. Now I’m subscribed by Apple iTunes purchases until January 2022, with the bad luck that my iPhone 📲 receives all the magazine editions but my Apple iPad doesn’t. The last one that I received in my iPad was the edition of October 25,2021. People Team, how can you help me?!?

App was updated. Email was entered for account login. Magazines not downloading. I have deleted and reinstalled the app three times. When I go to the main page, click on the latest issue of the magazine, it tells me to purchase, even though I am logged in. I am way behind with my reading. Please let me know how to fix this issue.

Cannot sign in using email where my confirmation was actually sent. Called Apple, but they were unable to help. Been subscribing for years, but this is a frustrating and unnecessary experience.

People app
I would enjoy this app if it didn’t keep reverting back to my home screen . I’ve contacted the app administrator who hasn’t gotten back to me, I’ve deleted the app and reloaded it on several occasions and I’ve been very careful about trying to enlarge the screen or make it smaller, turn pages etc., all to no avail. It’s extremely frustrating.

The WORST app ever
Cannot read a single page of the magazine without the app crashing. So annoying. Don’t waste your time. Luckily I get People magazine in the mail too because if I only had a digital subscription I wouldn’t be able to read it. This app used to be good with no issues. I’m not sure what happ nd but it is terrible.
