Scientific American Reviews
I wish the magazines would not have to re-download after they have already been downloaded multiple times. Other than that, the wide ranging content is certainly worth the surprisingly cheap subscription fee!
Easy read, complex, hard access
I like reading on iPad. Very nice interface! However, I think the log on process is much more complex than any other magazine. Also when I just want to download the magazine I am subscribed to,it seems I have to page through too many ads for other books and magazines to find it.
The app works. However, it does not remember your place if you stop reading and then go back. It would be nice if you could make reading notes.
Not easy to navigate on iPhone 7
First of all, there isn't a search option which is very disappointing. I subscribed to both Scientific American and Scientific American Mind and the latter is not syncing with the app. I expected more from Scientific American.
Almost every time I try to download a new issue the app says I am not authorized ...
I can usually fix things from my mac or pc, but not on my iPad. Incredibly annoying!
Purchased a subscription online in January, have never been able to log into the app using my credentials. have tried emailing and calling support numerous times. Their customer service makes Comcast look good
Scientific American provides a wide range of articles on leading edge technology, archeology, statistics, and other subjects of current interest. These appear to be well studied and documented articles. They are generally written in understandable terms for the non specialist in the various scientific specialties, though some are a bit advanced for the average person of non scientific background in that specialty.
The app makes you to buy again single issues in spite of having subcribed. . It stinks.
Can't access the digital subscriptions I paid twice for
By Bob in Tokyo
I'm a busy guy, and don't have time to deal with apps that just don't work. Whenever I tried to access the Scientific American issues, it indicated that I had to purchase the individual issues. Had my subscription run out? So in September I bought a new digital subscription, only to discover that I already had such a digital subscription good through February. But despite having double paid, the app still demands that I purchase individual issues. There is nowhere to fill in my subscription number to let them know that I already paid. This is a subscription racket that stinks to high heaven!
When logging in I get "Sorry we are experiencing technical issues working hard to fix. Check back soon." I've been getting this for weeks. Deleting app, rebooting iPad does not solve problem. I see nowhere in the app to report problems.
Does the job, but not great.

It does what it needs to, but it isn't impressive by any stretch.
By Harold Lassers
Often won't download issues I paid for in my subscription.
