General:

Q. What is a Pocketmags account? A. A Pocketmags account allows you to access and read your purchases on multiple devices; including PC and Mac, Apple devices (e.g. iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch) and Android. You can see what formats your favourite title is available for on the magazine’s page on Pocketmags. An account also protects your purchases in the case of a lost or stolen device.

Q. How long will my order(s) take to arrive? A. Your purchases will be available immediately under the ‘My Magazines’ section of Pocketmags online and in ‘My Library’ on the apps. If for any reason this is not the case please contact help@pocketmags.com

Q. I’ve ordered a subscription when will it start? A. Subscriptions start from the first new issue released after you take out your subscription. On the iPad and iPhone if the latest issue is not already in your account and you have purchased a recurring/ time-based subscription (e.g. 12 months, not 12 issues) then the latest issue will be added to your account. If you have purchased an issue based subscription (e.g. 12 issues) or a back issue bundle on an android device, iPad or iPhone then these can be used on any issues which have already been released simply by clicking on the issue price and selecting Yes when prompted to use a credit. If you would like to use some of your subscription as ‘credits’ for back issues on the PC/ Mac please contact help@pocketmags.com with your username (email) and which issues you would like.

Q. Why are my purchases not showing up on my new/ other device? A. You need to login to your Pocketmags account on each app and device which you use. This will then sync your purchases.

Q. How do I send my purchase as a gift? For full instructions refer to our gift guide.

Apple apps:

Q. How do I download the app for my title? A. If an app is available for your favourite title the App Store logo will appear on that title’s page on Pocketmags, simply click on the logo to go through to the App Store. Each app comes with one issue included in the price.

Q. My app won’t load past the splash page, how can I fix this? A. Simply delete the app (by holding your finger on the app logo until it wobbles and then clicking the cross) and then redownload it from the App Store (this will be free of charge as the purchase is linked to your iTunes account).

Q. I’ve made a purchase but the issue/ subscription hasn’t appeared in my account. A. If you haven’t already, please register a Pocketmags account by clicking login/register in the top right corner of the app homepage and then contact help@pocketmags.com stating your username and the problem.

Q. When I click Read the pages are black but the navigation still works? A. This suggests that you may be running low on capacity on your iPad and the iOS is auto-deleting content. Please free up some space on your iPad if applicable and then delete the issue and redownload it – to do this click ‘My Library’ (the second tab at the top) and click the red cross next to the issue in question. If this doesn’t resolve the problem please contact help@pocketmags.com with details of the problem.

Q. I’ve downloaded an issue but it won’t load/ has wrong/ missing pages, what do I do? A. Please delete the issue and redownload it – to do this click ‘My Library’ on the iPad and click the red cross next to the issue in question, on the iPhone click on the issue name and then select delete from the sub menu. If this doesn’t resolve the problem please contact help@pocketmags.com with details of the problem.
