    Angry Wolfe Publishing digital subscription

    Hi folks,

    I see Wolfe have created new websites for the digital editions of the magazines, I have spent days trying to figure out how to download the editions. Finally I conceded defeat and emailed them to find out to do it....

    Got an email back today, disappointed doesn’t describe how I feel... you can no longer download a magazine PDF.... Only browse an edition online... No archived local copy for future reference...

    Being in the U.K. this digital delivery was fantastic, previously I could only get the occasional printed magazine while on vacation... but not now...

    I’ve cancelled my subscription and if they have a change of heart and reinstate the PDF option I’ll never know....
    May we achieve our aims....

    Interesting. I have a digital subscription also (for 2 years & I just renewed). I usually just download the pdf to my phone & I read them when I have time. If it's strictly online link, I'll be cancelling also.

    Edit:

    Thanks for the heads-up. I called & cancelled my subscription & they are issuing a refund.

    This change torqued me off as well. I like having the PDFs on my tablet to read while traveling and in places where I don't want to screw with getting on wifi (which often times are nannied to prevent browsing to evil gun sites). I also liked chopping out the chunks of each issue's pdf I was most interested in (pet loads, etc) for separate archival.

    Oh well...I guess they got tired of people downloading the PDFs and sending them to all their buddies.

    I'm gonna give it a fair trial but at this point, it's doubtful I'll renew when it comes up again.

    I just sent them an email and canceled my subscription. I had wondered why I hadn't received an email from them in awhile saying "your latest edition is ready for download." I just tried reading the current issue online and can't for the life of me figure out the layout. I liked reading the magazine like a magazine, not a webpage... Oh well, I guess I can just pick up a hard copy at the bookstore. I never liked receiving them in the mail since they always got beat up pretty bad.

    I used to do that and never read any of it seemed like I would down load
    and forget about it I would much rather have a hard copy in my hands

    I'm not going to cancel my subscription, but I'm definitely NOT going to renew.
