Will miss my subscription… 😢 Since Google flat out REFUSES to save downloads to the SD card, I will be canceling ALL my digital subscriptions. I will no longer support or pay for a service that will not honor user preference to save to SD card. It is neither convenient or warranted to have digital purchases saved via internal storage only. I've been with Andriod since 2010 and it is really the only feature that has not been granted to the user. So tell me, why should I continue to pay for services that will not download off device?
It's not that I don't like Cooks Illustrated or America's Test Kitchen. I have been a subscriber for many years now and have purchased a number of cookbooks for myself and as gifts. What I don't like is having to log in from my browser to access this marvelous information on the website or pay to add the app to my tablet. Why in the name of your favorite deity must I pay for the app when I can get the same information by logging into my subscriptions from my browser for free?
Digital copies for your existing, paper subscribers please Hi there. I recently a paper subscriber and love the magazine. If I have to pay for both paper and digital copies, then I will stay with the paper copy because I am not sure I will love the digital as much. Some magazines I have loved receiving digitally and others I would rather stay with a paper subscription. If you would like to give your subscribers some time to adjust and determine if they like the digital magazine, then a free trial would be really great customer service. One month is just not enough time. I sometimes read my magazines 2 and 3 at a time because that is what time allows right now. If you are unable to accommodate this for your customers, then I will stay with paper. That being said, 5 stars for the content and printed copy; 2.5 stars for poor customer service.
I love the magazine but... I think it is ludicrous to have to pay for a digital subscription when I have already paid for the print version. Lame. Like wearing a bow tie lame.
My favorite subscription I love this magazine, and because I don't like wasted paper, I love this electronic edition even more! If you're not familiar with the Cook's Illustrated format you may want to take a look at a print copy first to gauge whether it works for you. These are lengthy text articles about cooking technique, rather than pages of recipes and photos.
Response to Criss's Review... ...if you had ever picked up a copy of the ACTUAL magazine, you'd note that the images are NEVER in color. They're in black and white. Always. So...with that in mind, want to change your review, Criss, or would you prefer to suggest that said magazine change its entire publishing history to suit your fussy needs?
