  1. What about us Android users? I have a Droid X…


    1. Definitely — this is already in the works. Stay tuned!!

  2. it would be nice for android users to get a app first before ipad

  3. I already have the print subscription, any deals to add the digital so I can have it on my iPad too?

    1. As of now, these are two separate subscriptions. We’d like to see an all-inclusive digital AND print subscription option in the future.

  4. I already have the print subscription, any deals on adding the digital to my print so i can have it on my iPad as well?

  5. How about subscribers to the paper addition? Do we get the app for free too?

    1. The app is free for anyone to download. You will need to buy a digital issue or subscription to access the digital issues.

  6. Looking at the feedback on iTunes, it seems that the app is not working, or there is some glitch with the subscription process. I was going to renew the print edition before I saw this. I would prefer to read on the iPad. Can you confirm that this indeed works as advertised?

    1. Any glitches are with current digital subscribers accessing their issues via the app. This is being addresses and should be fixed this week. I started a new digital subscription via the app and it worked just fine. (Bought it via the app and iTunes.) Hope this helps.

  7. I have been getting this digitally for a couple years. Is it possible for me to read this in the new app? If so, how do I go about it?

    1. I will forward your email to our IT folks, who will be able to help you.

  8. Please explain to my why I would want to read the latest issue of Model Airplane News on the little bitty screen of my IPhone when I have a subscription and can read a full size manazine?

    1. We suspect most users of the digital app will be reading on their iPads or other larger devices. 🙂

  9. I have been waiting for this app for a while now.
    It looks nice, but like some other magazine apps I was expecting the app to download the magazine so I can read it offline.
    It doesn’t.
    That unfortunately makes the app unusable for me as it is now.

    1. Thanks for your feedback. We’re checking with Texterity, our digital edition service provider.

  10. I have à digital subscription but it seems that it Will not sign in properly. I am doping something wrong?

    Plessers let me know as i rally like the idea reading my magazine on my iPad.


    1. I will forward your email address to our IT folks who will be able to help you access your digital issues via the app.

  11. I to am waiting for Android app.we need more information in large scale planes, Scale and Giant aircraft in Glow,Electric and Gas.

  12. I also would like it on Android. More stuff on large scale electrics and gas glow and electric Giant scarle.

  13. I am a subscriber of the printed edition. I understand as discrimination to have less contents than digital readers. I want the hard copy but I am willing to pay a bit more to access the digital bersion, but not double. Any proposal?

    1. As of now we do not have a discount option for current print subscribers.

  14. Will you publish an android app?

    1. That’s in the works! Stay tuned.

  15. The app still isnt working. I cant sign in, keeps saying account not found. This is a week of this nonsense now.
    Charged my credit card pretty quick though!

    1. thanks for your feedback. I have forwarded your comment and email address to our IT folks who will help you first thing Monday!

  16. The app does not work well. I cannot find 3 of the 6 issues I purchased. The app is very slow and crashes easily. There is only one zoom level available. The downloads go page by page instead of downloading the entire issue at once. overall, a poor user experience. I hope it gets a major update soon.

    1. Thanks for your feedback. I have forwarded your comment and email to our IT team who will help you first thing Monday.

      1. I hope they come up with something soon. Now, I’m down to just being able to access one of the issues I purchased.

  17. App works great now …. Thanks

  18. Any word on an android app??

    1. It’s in the works! Stay tuned …

  19. When you come up with the android version can you please put a little more info in the announcement on how and where to obtain it other than a note on the cover. Maybe something about how to get it for those who already subscribe. I have an I-touch and it seemed to me that I had to subscribe to the magazine again to get the deal. I will never-ever want only the digital edition. The day you go 100% digital and no mailings with a printed edition, I will stop my subscription flat-out.

  20. What happened to App on Apple store? I can’t find it anymore and I’m no able to read digital magazines in my iPad… I’ve just subscribed digital edition and just got 3 issues. Pls, help!

    1. Search for Model Airplane News and it should come right up. It’s definitely still there !
