  • App update

    I WISH I COULD GIVE ZERO STARS After the last update Lost all my magazines. I’ve tried everything keep getting the message, my email address can not be found, my account number can not be found. Everything was fine before the upgrade. I WANT MY MAGAZINES BACK!!!
  • Would like to give 0

    By NBChrist
    Since the app upgraded all of my magazine issues have disappeared. I’ve been trying to sign in for months....doesn’t recognize my account number or email address. Couldn’t contact anyone because it didn’t recognize my email address so the send button was grayed out. Finally tracked back the charges on my credit card so I could figure out who to’s the Meredith Corporation by the way. Was able to get through to a real, very helpful, person who verified my info...I’m not crazy after all...who then sent me to the ZINIO help desk. Have been going in circles with THEM all day. They had me input a new email address and password. We end up at the same spot “click on the digital+print subscriber button”. Where I am in accounts does not provide that option. I have uninstalled and reinstalled both the Real Simple and ZINIO apps. But, hey, good news...according to them I have been a subscriber since 2011! Yay for me! No magazines...they are happy to take my money and I get a nice blank screen!
  • Still Do Not Have Access to Anything

    By ASims0822
    Updated to the new app. Called customer service a number of times. The app doesn’t recognize my email or account. Been a subscriber for years; will not renew.
  • No access to what I’ve already paid for

    By Cookingbyipad
    Just adding my voice to the many people commenting on the failed upgrade. (Also kind of wondering if they know anything about testing new apps) I think that it says a lot about what they think of their content that they imagined their readers will spend more than 30 minutes trying to restore the app access for content they’ve already paid for. I know that this is probably not all real simple’s fault since I have similar challenges with other magazines through iTunes but nonetheless, it is ridiculous to be unable to access my subscription.
  • Great Magazine. Terrible App

    By Emhalsey
    I love reading this magazine and I loved reading through the various topics on the app during my downtime. This update is terrible and I will be ending my subscription. The amount of content is dramatically less and the layout is considerably less intuitive.
  • Worst update ever - how to tank a magazine

    By cutbillaj
    Like everyone else, I’ve lost all issues, it doesn’t recognize my sign in email or anything. Got no help whatsoever when I called. At a time when magazines are tanking right at left, decreasing ad revenues should be what you struggle with, not shooting your self in the foot with terrible updates like this. What a mess.
  • Just like every review so far - this is the WORST app

    By michellewbee
    All of my downloaded magazines are gone and there is nothing I can do to get them back. Also my account email is wrong and I had no option to update this. I’ve been a subscriber for a LONG time. This is making me question if I continue my subscription. Very disappointing Real Simple.
  • Lost access

    By snarkmiester
    Like others have reported, I too lost access to my subscription and all downloaded magazines are gone. I wish I’d waited to upgrade. This is a major failure for their app development team. I reached out to customer service and they said they had reinstated my access, but I still get a message saying my account doesn’t exist.
  • Zero stars (but they made me give one star)

    By mibsphil
    Horrible, horrible, horrible. The old app worked just fine and the new one doesn’t work at all. The app doesn’t recognize my email address or my account number, and I can’t download issues. Multiple phone calls and emails have been fruitless. Nobody seems to know (or admit) that there is a systemic problem with the new app. The app’s company, Zinio, is beyond horrible. I keep getting emails assuring me that everything is fixed, but of course it isn’t. I see their responses on other reviews here telling people that they will fix everything right away—of course that’s a lie. I’ve spent hours on the phone and dozens of emails and it still doesn’t work. Real Simple really blew this one.
  • Worst Update

    By mlsarm
    If I could I would give 1/2 a star. I’m a long time subscriber. I lost all my downloaded magazines with the new update. When I try to download an issue, I’m asked if I want to purchase it. I’ve called Real Simple customer service 3 times, once they told me that I would get an email response back in 2 days. Two days has since passed and no response. I subscribed to Instyle as well and it has the same problem. I wish I didn’t update the app.
