    I had issues logging in and I emailed for assistance and got a response within 24 hours. I can now log in and so far am very happy with the app version.

    This update addresses many of the rendering lag issues of the first app (although it seems my automatic background downloading stopped working with the update - hopefully it will start again?). To be fair - it's far better than a few weeks ago. However, they still have awkward navigation that should be addressed.

    Yes it's nice to read it like a newspaper but the app itself is deeply flawed and its a surprise and shame they haven't updated it so far....they obviously don't care too much about technology as the website isn't great either...typical fashion industry mentality. 1) the app is extremely slow. The download freezes at the 98% download mark every time I try to download an issue. I usually have to wait a good ten minutes to download a single issue and I have extremely fast Internet. 2) reading articles isn't easy. Zooming used to be much better but now it's hard to zoom then scroll around the page...again doesn't work. The biggest problem though is the downloads, it's ridiculous that its how it works. If they are going to take notes from another it's the NYT, a seamless app that delivers content almost instantly. Once shouldn't have to wait more then a couple sends for content download, if that. Technically it should be downloaded automatically so that when we open it we already have it downloaded on our iPads. WWD, step it up! I don't pay almost $200 a year for this kind of service!!!!

  • NEVER EVEN LET ME LOG IN Apr 15, 2014

    If I could give it zero stars, I would. This is such a waste of money. I paid for a subscription specifically so I could read it on my iPad/iPhone, and I have not once been able to log in. Save yourself the money and don't bother. I emailed customer service and explained that it kept saying "system error; please try again later," and their response was that I could log in with my email and password or with my account number and zip code...I already tried that, that's why I sent an email in the first place!!! So I called customer service and was assured their technicians were hard at work trying to fix the issue, but they couldn't tell me when it would be fixed or even how long this had been an issue for them. WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY, CANCELING MY SUBSCRIPTION.

  • WWD Should Be Ashamed... Jul 29, 2013

    By Crystal-phoenix
    I've been reading WWD for many, many years, and was thrilled when this app came out - no more piles of papers to deal with. But this app is atrocious. It would be bad enough if it were just the auto download and archive features didn't work as promised - they never did - but since the last "update" it won't download at all. For your subscription price, you get the sidebar article teases, and the issue covers - that's it, no content, no full articles, no web access. Plenty of other publications have figured this technology model out, so I can only assume that WWD does not wish to be in this space at all. All digital subs from this point should be refunded immediately, and this app should be pulled - it is an embarrassment.

  • Needs major work Mar 9, 2013

    When this loads it flips my iPhone time bar to the bottom, upside down. Although that goes back to the top when the app opens, when I'm scrolling down in an article the gray summary screen will pull UP, from the bottom. Screens will also randomly stop scrolling as though your finger weren't touching the screen, even though it is. This can be really frustrating. Also, if you accidentally bump the article left or right, the top half of the screen goes blank and you can now only read the article in the lower half. I also think this app doesn't show all of the actual WWD content. I used to have access to the print version and it had loads of pieces in there. This only seems to have about 15 articles a day and they aren't as good as the ones in the print. Really wish this app worked properly, or at all. I'm considering canceling my membership as I don't even want to read it - just makes me frustrated first thing in the morning.

  • A gigabyte: the new black Sep 26, 2012

    By oaj1977
    After only a couple weeks of having the app, my iPhone shows, when I go to Settings to "Manage Storage" that, even with apparently no saved PDFs of daily WWDs, the app (itself only a handful of megabytes big) was consuming a entire gigabyte of my very precious 16GB iPhones memory! Deleted the app from the newsstand and the gigabyte is gone after reinstalling. If the app can't manage it's size more efficiently, there's no way I'm leaving it to consume 10%+ of my entire iPhone... Ironic that it's just a paper daily paper. LOL

  • Unfortunately this is not a great app Jul 15, 2015

    By zsazsacocoa
    I purchased this app in January and loved it! I don't know what happened but all of a sudden it would not let me access my subscription and NO ONE from WWD or iTunes could tell me how my account got lost and how to access it. I will get a refund but I still need this subscription so I will, very reluctantly, repurchase it. But if you can, it may be better to just get the actual physical subscription.

  • So glitchy Nov 7, 2013

    By .,.,.!!
    After subscribing for a year I've decided not to renew. The paper issues often don't arrive, which would be fine if the app worked consistently. Instead, photos fail to download, page scrolling is wonky, the app crashes, and it's just a mess. Love the content but I'm tired of the frustration. It's really too bad.

  • Started crashing all of a sudden Mar 13, 2015

    By Wishly1119
    It used to work fine before but all of a sudden it would crash everytime I try to open an article. Also the daily editions wouldnt load any news, so now the only way i can use this app is to read the captions under "the latest news". Nightware....

  • Doesnt work and customer service doesn't respond Jun 28, 2015

    By missmindye
    This app is horrible! I purchased the subscription in March and have submitted multiple requests for help stating that the app doesn't recognize my login and only shows me the Wednesday issues for the entire. iTunes customer service told me my only recourse now is to ask my bank to get involved in getting a full refund since WWD support doesn't care to respond to my requests for help. HORRIBLE!!!! Don't by this app!

  • Worse every day Jun 20, 2013

    By Aymster660
    Crashes multiple times on opening, before it takes me to "automatic" download. Downloads only when I tap it, then progresses up to 99%, then goes backward to 98%, then freezes without any download. YES, I have auto-archive set up. Even this is useless, so I physically archive every single issue (if I'm lucky enough to successfully download it). I have to delete the app once every 2-3 weeks to even get a low rate of success with downloading. Customer service told me to set up Auto Archive, even after I already explicitly told them I had. Then told me that a new version was coming soon. When I enquired when this would be, they stopped answering my emails. Disgraceful to take our money and not deliver the product.
