My app is downloading slow. What can I do to speed up the process?

Some of our publications have a high page count and therefore are larger in file size. Use a strong wi-fi connection and close other web-enabled apps on your device to speed up your downloads.

I can’t hear sound on the videos embedded in my digital magazine.

What’s the difference between the Web-based archive and digital editions of the magazines?

The Journal’s digital editions are full versions of the magazine optimized for reading on a device, and include bonus content such as audio and videos. The archive is an exact replica of the Journal and does not include any bonus material. Print-and-digital subscribers can access the archive at no extra charge. Archive issues can be read via a browser on desktop computers, laptops or tablets.

Is there a separate subscription cost if you just want the digital edition of the Journal and not the print?

No. The subscription cost is the same.

Will the app automatically renew my Journal subscription each year?

If you purchased your digital subscription in the iTunes store, your subscription will renew automatically each year.

If you’d like to cancel auto-renewal, open the settings app on your iPad and select “iTunes and App Store.” Tap on your apple ID and select “View Apple ID.” Once your account information appears, scroll down to “Manage App Subscriptions.” Here, you can turn your subscriptions on and off. If you purchased your digital subscription outside of the iTunes store, terms and conditions will vary.
