1.0 out of 5 stars This review is for the APP not the Magazine November 23, 2011
By Gusto
Verified Purchase
I took the 90 day trial offer and downloaded the app without problems. Registration becomes a problem that neither Amazon or VF can address. They both claim that the solution is with the other side. End result, no registration, no content. No content, no trial. There are magazines that download content directly into the Kindle, without an app. Until they resolve this problem, I suggest you skip VF and save the time you waste trying to solve this problem, and read something else.

1.0 out of 5 stars If you're a print subscriber beware of BUGS!!! November 27, 2011
Verified Purchase
Wow. What a nightmare. I'm a print subscriber to Vanity Fair, but I've. been trying to access this app for a week! it wont remember your password and sends you on an endless loop of put in your account info, check your password, authorize your account and none of it works! Funny, won't let me log into the magazine, but will let me log into the customer service area! Come on Amazon and Conde Nast get on the ball! Fix this! If you read reviews for other Conde Nast magazines you'll see that lots of people are having log in problems. Ugh.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bugs, bugs, bugs... December 4, 2011
Verified Purchase
As other reviewers have stated, I cannot download the December issue, even though I am a print subscriber. The November issue was great and was looking forward to downloading the next issue, but so far cannot access it as a subscription customer.

Another issue is that my username and password won't save, so I have to log in each time.....such a pain!

It would also be great if there was an option for BIGGER FONT! The font is tiny and some sections of the November issue were downright impossible to read.

Finally, the locked view feature is great on the Kindle Fire (as I don't like having the on/off button located on the bottom on the Kindle) but the VF app does not adhere to my locked view preference and thus I have to turn my Kindle 180 degrees when I open it.

Once these bugs are fixed, I'm certain the app will be worth 5 stars, as the magazine is presented in an interesting and intuative manner.

1.0 out of 5 stars This App for Kindle FIRE does NOT WORK!! January 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
I downloaded and viewed the November 2011 issue, but, have been unable to download the December or Jan issues. I am a print subscriber, and the app should work. Vanity Fair customer service say that can't help me - and Amazon says they can't help me!

2.0 out of 5 stars Was first-rate, but now... November 20, 2011
Verified Purchase
After purchasing and downloading the app, you must create an account. Then you can download the current issue which is about 200 mgs. That's quite large but you can archive it to the cloud at any time. The Kindle Fire edition is bright, glossy and colorful. It takes a little time to get used to navigating but it's not that difficult.

There are excellent, well written articles with beautifully photographed pictures. This is a quality magazine and a quality app.


One month later I forgot my password and asked for a new password. An email was sent to me but when I click on it I get a 404 Service error on Vanity Fair's site. So, I cannot log into Vanity Fair. I cannot contact Customer Service on their site because I don't have a ...password. So, after my free trial is up I cannot cancel. In fact, I may never be able to cancel. My only hope is to stop payment via my bank.

Frankly, I would not sign up for Vanity Fair if I were you. There is virtually no customer service from the magazine. Because of this, I am changing my rating from 4 stars to 2 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of single issue purchase February 8, 2012
Verified Purchase
I was really afraid to get this app for my Kindle Fire because of all the negative reviews, but I took a chance and I'm glad I did. It sounds like a lot of the problems have to do with subscribers, so I'm just using it to purchase single issues - just in case. But, my first issue has been great and I love that it's interactive. The magazine is very easy to navagate because there are lots of little notes telling you to "click here" or arrows telling you which way to turn. I've found that you can't zoom in like I've been able to do with other non-interactive digital magazines, but I have no problems at all seeing the text clearly and the photography is just beautiful. What I really like is that after you finish an article, there is a section giving you options to read more about the subject in different blogs and things on the Vanity Fair website. You just click on them and it will take you right there and then you can go back to where you left off reading. That is probably what I like the best about the interactive part of the magazine. I don't read Vanity Fair every month so I doubt if I'd subscribe anyway, but when I do want to read the magazine I'll definitely stay with this app.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now I'm HAPPY! December 14, 2011
Verified Purchase
Love the magazine, just wish I could access the latest issues with the Kindle Fire app! Please fix! P. S. Thanks for providing digital access with a print subscription, but it's just frustrating that it doesn't work.

**UPDATE** I just received this reply from Vanity Fair's customer service;

"Dear Subscriber:

Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience you have

Amazon has informed us of a software problem with the Kindle FIRE and
downloading the December issue. They are working on the problem and will
have it resolved shortly. Please watch for updates on your Kindle FIRE."

Hopefully we'll see this update soon!

UPDATE #2 (24 March, 2013) - I'm negligent in updating this old review, but the folks at Vanity Fair have done a wonderful job in fixing the reading experience. This is my favorite e-magazine now. I also receive the print version with my subscription, but honestly never even open it, as I much prefer the electronic version. The HD images are fantastic (even the ads) and the bonus video content and other little interactive elements are great fun.
