App Reviews

  • Great magazine, app needs an update.

    By GPSops
    I love Sky and Telescope magazine and have subscribed for many years. No issue there. My critique is for the app, which has at least (for me) one very annoying bug: On my iPad Air under iOS 11, if you attempt to open the app without an internet connection, say on an airplane, it will crash, repeatably. Opening the app with an internet connection is no problem. The best workaround I’ve found is to launch the app while still having a connection and open an issue prior to boarding the plane, but even that does not always work if too much time elapses. Really annoying! While I’m not 100% sure this behavior began with iOS 11, I believe so. The app could really use an update!
  • Great magazine, frustrating app

    By BakinWithBaker
    The convenience of digital editions is great. I've had no problems accessing issues I've paid for. I enjoy the simplicity of the app and think that makes for a better reading experience. However, the app does not save your place!! If you leave the app for too long, or at all on older devices, it closes the issue you're reading and the next time you open the app, you're back at the home screen. Then you have to open the issue back up and go back to where you left off. So be sure to pay attention to the page you're on if you're going to close the app! This is, in my opinion, unacceptable for a reading app. Please fix this!
  • Good magazine. Extremely poor application!!

    By I41cu2
    Just subscribed and they subscribed me for the previous year? Sky and telescope support could do nothing except take my money. No fix as yet.
  • Lousy App

    By ZakZQ
    Lousy, poor interface. Unable to restore purchases. Content of the magazine itself is good but the app is a failure. I almost cancel all my subscription because of this app. Shame on you! I wasted one hr already trying to access my issues that I PAID FOR!! Thanks for nothing!
  • Won't work on iPhone 7

  • Works but needs a refresh

    By Joe Ianni
    The app works fine, but the UI is in desperate need of an update. A text only view for articles would be a huge help as well.
  • Piece of junk

    By "mouse"
    Supposed to be free except for in app purchases. What a laugh! After you d/l the app, that's it. Pay or leave. Better yet, don't waste your time.
  • Fails every time!

    By T James Turk
    Very disappointing! Program crashes every time I delete an older issue or load multiple issues. Today I had to delete and reinstall the program when it wouldn’t let me delete 2013 issues to free up a little space on my iPad. When I tried to reload current issues, it crashed again with the 4th issue I tried to load. I’ve had the same problem since I first subscribed in 2012, despite claims that the problem has been fixed. With so many excellent magazine apps out there (e.g. National Geographic, The New Yorker) I don’t understand why they can’t fix this.
  • Security-challenged

    By dosayles
    What app echos your failed password attempt? What app then sends you an email with your password? The answer is none, if you're new to this. Amended correctly, the answer is this one does. Miserable user-level security. Third party wrote this "magazine" translation layer to view the latest issues; that in itself is ok although there is an antiquated 90s feel to it while magazines were trying to discover how to be relevant to online users. Unnecessary today, yet useable EXCEPT for the horrible security practices utilized. Time to step to the 10's developers (...and S&T!!)
  • Doesn't work

    By Toddipoo
    The app crashes at random and that's when it actually opens, which is probably about 1 in 30. Now I've been going through the nightmare of trying to get a refund but they don't seem to have records of it since I purchased through their app. Don't recommend.
