Has not worked for weeks on my iPhone 6 plus
My five star review 2 years ago: After going through an incredibly innovative magazine redesign after it's purchase by Bloomberg, finally BusinessWeek comes to the iPad. Well worth the wait. I'm a longstanding subscriber for whom there is no additional charge, but $2.99 a month seems very fair for non-subscribers to a weekly of BusinessWeek's journalistic quality. Interestingly laid out. You may be sure they will continue to refine the design based on the effort and detailed followup surveys relating to the print edition. Bravo, BusinessWeek! So why one star now? On a consistent basis new issues won't download. Gets stuck at 99% despite ongoing, unending download activity indicated. The only remedy according to BusinessWeek is to remove and reinstall the app which loses any cuttings. This is a known issue despite which the app hasn't been updated in ten months. I had to go through this procedure for the fourth time in several months today. Their support will not commit to when they will update their app. In addition, at all times the app indicates 'processing' as if completing a download, another seeming bug. Also, the splash screen has the resolution of the icon, making what is otherwise a graphically outstanding app & content look totally amateurish. Annoying for a 'one man band' free app. Disgraceful for Bloomberg, a $9 billion financial media and technology conglomerate selling a $30 subscription to a globally recognized business publication. May 20 Update: had to re-download the app for at least the fifth time to date. Same issue but this time last week's issue keeps reloading while the current issue doesn't (only gets to 99%). And to top it all: click 'App Support' (in the App Store) and you get a 404 error. Seems like Bloomberg has given up entirely on their app but are still happy to collect their $30 subscription. Sad. And such a great publication.
A good app, certainly improved recently, but the problem remains when a new issue is available for downloading, it goes to 99% downloaded and stays there. The May 15th issue appeared on my phone to be downloaded on TH May 11th; it got to 99% and stayed there until TU May 16th, though I got my issue in the mail on SAT May 13th. By TU May 16th when it fully downloaded, I had already read half of the paper version. Not very helpful. I emailed Tech Support, and to their credit they responded, but said the thing to do was to delete the app and download it again, but I would lose all my clipped (saved) articles, which is not a viable solution for me.
I have an ipad 2 and this app no longer allows me to read Business Week. I continuously get the message update required. I tried to load the old app that was available but the update required message keeps coming up. This seems to be an old fashioned catch 22. Ok it has been months now and still the download stops at 99%. Poor execution.
I like the app although I do sometimes experiences problems with it.
This app hasn't been updated in almost a year and nothing is optimized on my iPhone 7. I enjoy my subscription to Bloomberg Businessweek but had to switch over to the print subscription instead because the experience on the iPhone is not enjoyable. Please take a page from the Economist and actually invest resources into the mobile experience for your magazine subscribers.
I have been subscribing the magazine for years, I love the magazine but not the app. I am frequently stuck with 99% when downloading new issues. It's beyond frustrating. I'll be much better off spend my time reading something else than staring at 99%.
the app is a continuing embarrassement. Every two or three issues one has to delete it, reinstall it, and then find and enter one's customer number. It was a great app at one time. Then there are those pop up ads which make me just wait for the paper copy to arrive. But, sometimes one is traveling so you have to always carry your customer number with you so you can delete the app, reinstall it, and then enter the customer number.
I love my print edition with politics and business and life issues all tied in to one magazine in a very clean, professional way. The Electronic Edition is kind of slow to download, sometimes it is best to delete the app then re load it...all the magazines will then download cleanly with no problems.
Why is it so difficult to fix this issue?
I had to delete and reDL the app 3 times already, at different time period. It lost my subscription info each time and I had to wait till I got home to look up my info on my physical magazine print copy...fix it already!
As others, this was one of my favorite apps. However, I haven't read it in weeks because the download gets to 99% and stops. After loading and reloading there appears to be no solution! I have sent 3 emails requesting help and have received no response. I will just have to cancel my subscription.
If the app was designed half as nicely as the Bloomberg website, it would be a much better app. (Too fuzzy, design feels outdated). Other than that, great app!
What was an excellent app now has downloading issues, including getting hung up at 99%. While it will now let you begin reading while still downloading, that's not helpful if it's hung up and you're trying to "download and go". Lots of good features, but a step backwards.
More options to change font size would be great. Related articles? More of a tie in with other Bloomberg content. Good overall for light weight magazine reading.
The news and the knowledge are very interesting.
This app is next to worthless. For the past 5 weeks it will not download new issues unless it is removed from the device, reloaded and credentials re-entered. Get it fixed!
Used to be a solid performer but it won't download any issues anymore. I still get the printed version but I rarely read it. May cancel since I prefer to read the electronic version. I also agree with other reviews that the pop up ads are excessive.
While the content is good I have experienced terrible problems downloading issues. They do not fully download when available. It sometimes takes 2 weeks before I can download an issue. This needs to be fixed
Does everything it is supposed to, for a really great magazine.
