I agree with John (Why pay twice) You pay 3.99/2.99 an issue to put a mag on your phone so you can brag and say look what I have. I have stacks of The Family Handyman mags I have received over the years, plus a 6" thick book, The Family Handyman Encyclopedia giving to me by my grandfather before he passed away.. Open your eyes up editor of The Family Handyman. Quit being so greedy and take care of the subscribers you have before you lose us as customers. If you are a paid subscriber this should be included. This app is not for me.
Good for ideas around the house. But the publisher doesn't quite get this internet thing. Magazine is often late and they just recently they forgot to upload the magazine for almost a month. Sure I would like to get the print copy but between toddlers and pets bad things come to good magazines. My other magazines come at the same time as the paper subscriptions do (about a month ahead) but this one is usually about a week to two behind the news stand. Other than the delivery issues, TFH has great content and fun ideas of what to do around the house.
The reason I just gave 4 stars for liked it that is just it in Dec. my subscription came up for renewal to make things easier I renewed in Google. Now all I have are digital copies and I wanted the printed magazine. Seems to me they can't get it straight as to what people want. I got printed magazines all last year and I want them again this year if I would have wanted to change I would have said so. Didn't think it would be such a hassle. It is actually a great magazine but I want my printed one back have not received one since Dec. 2016. GIVE ME BACK MY MAGAZINE I PAID FOR...then I will give 5 stars.
Recieved 2 mags then wanted more money. Beware Good subscription if you make sure you start your subscription on their time line. It doesn't start when you pay. It jumps right in. Like an earlier review states. I paid $10 for a year subscription and after 2 copies I get hit with another $10 which I canceled so I paid $10 for 2 magazines. I won't get the 10 other mags I paid for. Which would get anyone angry.
FH app If they want to automatically switch me from paper to digital for free I'm game, but I won't pay separately for the same thing. That's ridiculous.
Digital copies should be free to active subscribers Love this magazine, hate the app! Always a good read for DIY projects/tips and I enjoy the product reviews. Just wish that they would read these reviews and hear the out cry to include digital copies to those of us who have an active subscription! I'M NOT PAYING MORE FOR SOMETHING I ALREADY GET IN THE MAIL!
