App Reviews

  • Please, please fix your app!!

    By jetflyr
    I have always loved the magazine but now the app crashes every few pages and I’m losing my mind.
  • Crashes

    By Htwelve
    Continues to crash on my iPad after a few pages. It won’t even work on my phone
  • The Worst

    By heneghan pc
    I will not renew the subscription. The app has to restore every time it is opened. The continual crashing is very irritating when trying to read an article
  • Terrible App

    By Big E Sports
    I’ve been trying to read an issue for 15 minutes now, and the app has crashed 4-5 times. I noticed many other comments about issues with the app, so it appears that Backpacker just doesn’t care.
  • Works on iPhone but not iPad

    By AnotherDrunkKid
    I love this magazine and prefer it to be digital Please fix it been missing out on 3month of magazines now It doesn’t work on my iPad which is where I read it. I have the subscription through iTunes.
  • Amazing Magazine. Atrocious App.

    By MJFenlason
    Backpacker magazine is phenomenal! Stunning photos, great info, the works. The app, however, has been a heap of steaming garbage for ages and it seems to just get worse. I subscribe digitally, even though it’s a bit more expensive. I do this to try and cut down on waste and make the content easier to access (even while on the trail). The app is not optimized for current phones (and hasn’t been for sometime) it’s also buggy as all heck. Backpacker, please, oh please, update your app to be worthy of the content you put into it! If it doesn’t get updated soon, I’ll have to unsubscribe.
  • Terrible App that Crashes So Much it is Worthless

    By Tfain79
    I have a brand new iPad Pro and this app cannot even stay open long enough for me to read an article.
  • Impossible to download

    By Warwound
    Active subscription. Have not been able to see any magazines for 4 months. Yes I follow the instructions.
  • Works fine now

    By Einar from Boise
    Had a few issues a month ago but subscription services was able to fix it for me. I like being able to read issues on my phone whenever I get a free moment.
  • Best magazine ever! BUT worst app ever!!!

    By N8P Records
    The app never works properly and it is extremely frustrating because I don’t always receive my magazine in the mail either, so having both a digital and paper subscription hasn’t proven to be that effective or worth it. Ugh!!!! PLEASE FIX THE APP!!!!!!
