Great, but feature request:
Great app, love the content, but would be nice to support landscape mode since my iPad is in that orientation most of the time. Keep up the great work on the content, just a few app improvements and you’ll get 5 stars.

Displays all languages in latest update (not good)
Happy to see the latest issue show up in the iOS app but not happy to see all 12 language versions. The badge icon indicates 12 new issues but what it really means is there 12 different language versions available and they all show up in the app. Not a good experience. I only want to see the language I’m using. App should provide a feedback mechanism to report problems. You have to search through the issue to find a general email address and even then it is not a link or something you can copy and paste. Agree with others that landscape mode should be supported.

I have left several bad reviews in the past, and always come back to try again. I’m a life member and love the magazine. Just got a new iPad and after a quick spin in the app, it seems to work great. I’ve tried before on an iPad that is 3 yrs old and could never get it to reliably work. Tried it on a Samsung LG Gpad, no dice. Tried a Samsung Galaxy Tab A and had a little better luck, but ultimately, not reliable. I think they have it right this time, at least on the new iPad.

Does not work
I have attempted to follow the instructions as written on both the HOG website and the APP store. First of all there is no way to search for the HOG magazine in the NEWS STAND app. Um. Ok. SO i looked at a few other harley websites. Eureka! I found a link to the app in the APP store. so i downloaded it. and there is no way to now activate the app with my HOG membership number... seriously guys this should not be this difficult! there should be the option to input your number in the settings gear in the app. alas no... please update your page and magazine to reflect correct download and installation instructions, because this is silly. it should not be this hard to fix.

Love the E-mag!
I love the mag and look forward to reading it every month. I usually read everything. Every word of every article especially the $100 rides and rider stories. I would have given this 5 stars except that I can’t read it on my iPhone. In this day and age of smart phones with larger screens why are you limiting us to just an iPad? I always have my phone with me but rarely take my iPad. Give us the app on our iPhones and make it even more convenient for all of us.

Print too small
I was happy to get the app, but it needs some serious refinement. You should be able to view it in landscape format, because the print is so small to read on a Smartphone. It should have the option to change the font size. Also, why is there a gap in issues? I have issue 01, but then it goes to issue 09. What happened to 02-08? You can do better. If you’re going offer the app, at least make it user friendly. God knows, Harley-Davidson makes enough money off us to afford it.

Pretty Good, Not Perfect
First...hallelujah for digital content! I’m excited to support sustainability. We receive 2 copies monthly of HOG/Enthusiast magazine, one for each HOG member in our household. Save a tree and postage fees, H-D! Ok, it’s really good for reading content. I do like the user experience on iPhone...scrolling and swiping is easy. I like the cover preview for the editions. OK the bad part...App did crash while downloading content. No big deal...restarted. Also crashed when trying to share content. Booo. User experience feedback...The library is kind of clunky...Enthusiast 01, HOG 057?? C’mon guys we’re humans! If we want to share something we remember the publish month or what the cover looked like, not the edition. Add publish date to library title.

Love the new Enthusiast!
I love the look and format of the Enthusiast. In the early 1900s, there was a female columnist that wrote about riding cross country with her mom in a sidecar. All sorts of different subjects and contributions from so many. Just reading those old issues makes me want to ride more. The new Enthusiasts seems to be trying to get back to that. I think it’s great.

Not a good magazine app…
I’m really disappointed that I no longer get the print version of the magazine, and now HD seems to think their customers will want to just flip through this app without ever going back to the index! It’s not laid out like a magazine, once you start reading an article you have to scroll forward and backward from that point. I haven’t figured out how to get back to the index, so it just leaves me frustrated! 😖

Nice having digital version of HOG
Love convenience of having my issues available on my iPad Pro, works fine but wish it rotated landscape to read like open book, plus work with iPhones & iPod touch like any other ebook reader. Would also be nice to have all issues available before 17 which are available online on HOG website as PDF, and other HD literature including sales brochures, P&A product bulletins, recalls, & installation instructions...

The new magazine is awesome!
I was just checking out the app for first time and is awesome, number 05 is a master piece, the transactions between pages, the design, the photography, and the content is amazing. Keep the hard work going 💪.

Such awesome content. But can’t read it on an iPhone
I’m sure Harley is hard at work transitioning to digital, and I can’t wait until they update the app to actually be legible on an iPhone. I know this work takes time. I have to biggest iPhone and still cannot read it. Thanks for the awesome content. Fingers crossed on that app update coming soon. I’ll read every page.

Where is the FIX?
I'm a full member and along with the other reviews here, there isn't a way to enter membership info on the iPhone app to recieve magizine issues. Apple couldn't support my left nut, they don't fix anything they don't sell and I have a defective laptop in the closet they won't even support! I paid Hog for this membership, they should handle backing up their product or why join it!

As with all the other reviews there is no way to get the subscription info on this App. for Iphone. Works great on my I-pad, but I-phone is another story. Downloaded, deleated and downloaded it again, still the same problem. Why is it taking so long to give this a fix ?????

I just downloaded The Enthusiast app, and the font size is very small on an iPhone X. Please add the ability to pinch and expand to increase the font to a more readable size. Thank you

Where Are They?
Got the latest issue but it appears that almost all of my previous electronic issues going back to the beginning have disappeared. At least I still have my hard copies but they cannot accompany me on my travels.

Can't get any issues
Along with everyone else you can't download any issues on the iPhone app. You guys might as well just remove the app from the store since no one is fixing it. Glad I paid for a subscription I can't use.

Lost issue access and can’t reload
What a pain. There is no way to login. I’m a full HOG member, had access to all the magazines, and now there is now way to login and get access. What’s more, there is no way to request app support. Very frustrating

Still no landscape mode
Why would you make a magazine app that doesn’t lay like a magazine? How many years has it been now and STILL no update for it. You know that the ipad sits in landscape mode on most stands, right? Dumb.

Unfortunately only issue is 46 through 49 are available on an iPhone. As far as the app is concerned I’m not a hog member even though I’ve been a hog member for the last three years. Doesn’t seem to be anyway to fix.

Very poor design.
The app can’t be rotated. The font size cannot be adjusted. To go to the next page you have to scroll through a whole article first. Basically, skip this app and beg H-D to put it back into print form. Garbage. Just like Harley Davidson—too many flaws. I love my bike but only because I did to it what needed to be done—not because H-D got it right. The App Store forced one to give it at least one star. I would give it no stars but it won’t let me.

This is crap!
I am a life time member and have been a member since 2003. I have access to 8 issues of HOG and 3 issues of Enthusiast. I have every printed copy of HOG and Enthusiast so I know there are more available. Why can’t you get this app to show them?

How can Harley let this App go unfixed! I paid way to much for my Harley to have an App that has never worked! If you don't care to fixit delete the frickin App from the App Store. I can't even give Harley a rating on the App.

I think a number of us have been waiting for this for a long time and I for one have to say 'Great Job'. I see a lot of potential with the digital version, which I hope we will see in a future version; such as publishing URLs to destinations / sites presented in the articles, or rating an article and or submitting comments back. Thanks Again!!

How is this possible???
Edit* Just opened the app and it works again. Not sure how or why but thank you. ------------------------------------------------------------- Release an update to the app and you broke it. This subscription is pretty much the only perk for my continued HOG membership. So many complaints and I haven't seen a response from any developers. Pitiful - honestly, for a company that boasts American pride...their lack of interest in fixing this issue speaks volumes.
