    Very slow and frustrating subscription process. I applied and paid online to get digital access but I still do not have access to the app because "it cannot find my records". Online chat support is useless. Couldn't do much and asked me to send an email to the subscription department. The only response comes back from the email is an automated reply that someone will come back "shortly". Apparently "Shortly" means 48hrs which for a digital transaction process is stupid. New Scientist's digital process is a disgrace to both "new" and "scientist"...

    Very not user friendly app. Usage doesn't feel smooth and everything doesn't seem to be fine tuned.

    Everything is charged at a higher rate than if I was to buy it at the news agent. I will buy the odd copy in print
