I used to buy the print version of this mag, and downloaded the app to get the digital version. Everything I read on the way here said "30 days free trial" but, when I got to the subscribe page, it's only 14 days. I don't really care how long it is, but I don't like the bait and switch tactic. Since the existing review here aren't all that stellar, I think I'll put this off for awhile.

If you want to subscribe forever then you may not have a problem. However I had to change my email address. Although it will allow me access subscription magazine if put old address signing in, it refuses option of cancelling on the site/app'. Apparently I have to do that via Google. Unfortunately as aforementioned my Google account has a different email. Skeptic doesn't allow backup email address so I'm stuck paying for this magazine that's not a shadow of original...forever?

If you are even considering this app, then you should go for it. Subscribed to the printed version for years, switching over to the digital version recently. Enjoy.
