  • Horrible Update!

    By sgrain
    I just updated my Real Simple app and lost all my digital issues. I can’t access my new or old magazines. I had other magazines on ZINIO with no problems I don’t know what’s happening with RS magazine.
  • Updated App Problem

    By Christee0903
    I am having the same issue as others. I have reached out to RS customer service. They instructed me 2 different times to delete and reinstall even after I told them it didn’t work the 2 times I did before even contacting them. They then informed me that they changed my password and were able to see all my issues. When I signed in with the new password and waited for the app to update as instructed- still no issues. The purchase button never changed to a download button. This was 2 days ago. Very frustrated.
  • January 14th app update issues

    By Havenrock
    Do not download and install today's (January 14, 2019) update. I updated this app, when notified and forced to update it. The app no longer recognizes my user account email. I talked to tech support through Real Simple. A password reset did not work. Apparently, other users are experiencing the same issue: "User does not exist." They are working on it, supposedly fixing it this week.

    Only update app if you want to lose access to all issues. February 2019 issue prompted update with message. Zinio registration required but RS app doesn’t recognize email address or subscription number. No help from Zinio or RS customer service. Told to wait 48 hours for system to more than 96 hours and still no magazines in library.
  • Terrible update to app

    By LEPPS3275
    Since the app was updated a few days ago, I am now unable to sign into the app. Does not recognize my account number or email address. Fix it!
  • Bookmark

    By melkrivdo
    With the latest update I'm trying to figure out how to bookmark a magazine page so I can continue reading where I left off.
  • Way better

    By Poopy28283838
    Finally, we got a update worth something. Much much faster. Thank you.
  • Hard to read

    By AliceHDA
    The app version seems to get less and less reader friendly. Why can't the pages appear one at a time in full screen? I just want a similar experience to reading as in the print version. The app used to do that. The reader view is not helpful. I should just be able to see the pages in full screen. Your settings offer no viewing options.
  • Keeps getting worse

    By RaineBagley
    Edit: Cancelled my subscription a few months ago. Couldn't take the buggy app anymore. My subscription will remain cancelled until the old app is back. Edit: And now I can't even stay logged in or download any of my magazines. Awesome... I've been subscribing for a long time and they keep changing the parts about it I like. I don't have room for the paper magazines at my apartment, so I rely on the e-version to get and keep my magazines. First they removed the calendar at the end, ok. And now, starting with January's issue, the text seems so much smaller with fewer interactive features such as highlighting one caption of a list at a time. I usually read while I'm on the treadmill and it's almost impossible for me to read now - I'm 28 with 20/20 vision. The table of contents also doesn't seem to let you jump around anymore making it hard to revisit articles I may not have had time to read. If the magazine keeps going downhill like this, I won't be able to justify spending the money on it anymore.
  • Missing older issues

    By TishCarey
    I purchased digital issues as part of a hard-copy subscription. Issues before September 2013 are missing from the app. Are you going to make them available, or are they gone forever?
