1.0 out of 5 stars App needs work November 18, 2011
Verified Purchase
Let me start off by saying I love the magazine. I'd love to have a digital copy on my iPad or Fire even more. However, on both devices, I have repeatedly given my account information, changed my password and anything else I can think of but I am never given the option to view magazines. My "library" is just an empty screen. Reviewers over at the iTunes store regarding the iPad app have the same problem. I last attempted the iPad app a few months ago and had hoped that this was fixed.

PLEASE FIX THE APP! It doesn't work on my kindle fire after the update!!! I don't recommend this app for kindle fire until this gets fixed!!!
I finally just dumped the app and downloaded it again. It works now but I did have to download my magazines again which took a looooong time. There are improvements to the app. If I leave the app in the middle of the magazine it will hold my place which is a MAJOR improvement! There are a lot more audio/visual features in the update.

1.0 out of 5 stars horrible update October 12, 2012

I loved the first app and I love the magazine but the update added a gazillion ads which I think made the magazine too big too download. I never had problems before and I tried to download the October issue and it took literally hours and forced close a couple times and locked up my kindle. my kindle has never locked up until I downloaded this app

have not been able to download it and I have tried several times. The magazine is not accepting my address and I do not have my account number since I am not subscribed to the magazine anymore. so I am stuck. I just hope customer service can help me some way.

You can not view the magazine no matter how many times you give you information and contacting the magazine is no help.

full of information, Im a grandparent and enjoy reading it and staying informed. My grandchildren are 3 and 6. They visit every weekend and we want our visits to be memories never forgotten. Especially while we are able to be active and productive with them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great concept but... October 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
I love the interactivity of the app. In many ways Parents magazine might be the best example of how to "do" a magazine on the Kindle Fire. However, with this last update that I had to do to get the October issue, I have started having problems. Mainly, I keep getting a "Not enough memory" message when I try to download another issue. I have over 500 MB available and while I know the magazines are bigger I know they aren't that big. As a matter of fact, I had finished reading a previous issue and deleted it, then tried to download it again and got the same message. Of course nowhere is there an indicator of just how much memory it wants to download these issues.
Edit 11/20/12 I just received my new 8.9 inch HD fire and downloaded the app and 1 issue. It went well and then I opened it. It's this tiny little square in the middle of the screen (about a quarter of the screen size.) Really?? As annoyed as I am at other magazine apps not being available yet, why bother making it available if it's not really functional. And I miss the animated covers.
Edit 1/24/13 A month after the last edit we got a really nice call back from someone in customer service at the magazine that said to redownload the app. It now works like a charm! Beautiful on the HD 8.9 inch. I don't know if the memory issues were addressed as I have lots more memory on the new Fire.
