If they purchase a single issue, they will be able to download that issue immediately after the successful purchase.
- Q: How do Special Issues Work?
A: Special Issues are different in the sense that they are not part of the magazine subscription. They are independent special issues and everyone will need to buy them to read them, including magazine subscribers. Special issues will have a red “Special” sash and will appear below the top section in your mag home screen.
- Q: I am not getting the new mags delivered automatically
A: We love Apple but even they are not perfect. Push Notifications are awesome but sometimes your ipad can drop push notification connection. Weird but it happens. What you can do is to turn off Wifi, turn on Airplane mode, then reconnect to wifi. Something else you can try is to connect to another wifi network for a while and then switch back to your. Restarting your iPad can also sometimes help.
- Q: Sometimes I am not receiving the push notifications?
A: Push notifications are awesome. We love Apple, but unfortunately nothing is perfect. push notification can be spotty at times and requires that the iPad device maintains a permanent connection to the APSN service and the error is likely to be there. Try the solution in the FAC above this one.
- Q: is there an iPhone version of our magazine app?
A: At this point the focus is on the iPad version only of the magazine. The reality is that very few users like to read a magazine in the tiny iPhone screen. The iPad screen real estate makes your magazine pop. An iPhone version might be considered in the future, stay tuned.
- Q: Getting a “Cannot connect to itunes Store” when clicking on the subscribe button or buy button
A: This can happen in the following situations: You do not have wifi or internet access, or you have “Restrictions ON” to prevent others from making purchases in your iPad. Restrictions are located on the general settings and should be disabled to allow inApp purchases.
