It’s $1.99 per issue or $5.99 per year (50% savings over single issue). A Web subscription is the same price as a subscription in the iOS Newsstand and gives you access in iOS on all your devices, too. (See below for how to activate both kinds of access.)
If you’re already a monthly subscriber, you can switch to yearly:
• In the app, tap the settings (gear) icon, and tap Manage Subscriptions. This launches the App Store. You may be prompted to enter your password. Now tap The Magazine and set Auto-Renew to Off. The Yearly option at $5.99 is now available. Tap $5.99 and you’ll be prompted to subscribe at that new rate. Billing starts when your current single subscription period ends.
• For Web subscribers, visit the account page. You can tap a link to get a pro-rated upgrade from monthly to yearly: the unused portion of your monthly subscription is credited toward the yearly cost.
If you have the app installed on an iOS device and notifications are turned on for our app (and in general), you will get a notice whenever a new issue is out. If you miss that or have notifications turned off, a “new” label appears on the issue in the Newsstand.
Certainly. Our feeds contain the full text of articles that appear in full on the Web site (such as the Editor’s Note and Letters to the Editor), and the preview text for articles that are available to subscribers. You can subscribe in your favorite newsreaders via RSS or Atom.
Yes! We use a password-free account system.
• If you have subscribed via the iOS app (a Newsstand subscription), you can read ArtMolds Journal in any browser. Launch the app and tap the settings (gear) icon. Tap Register Email Address, and an email (within the app) pops up. You can use any return address that you have set in iOS, not just the one that you use with the App Store. When you receive the email on your iOS device or another device, copy the link and paste it the browser you want to authorize. After you’ve done that once, you can send email from the Web to authorize other browsers.
• If you subscribed via our Web site, you can activate your subscription in iOS. First, log into the Safari browser on your iOS device using the email with which you subscribed on the Web. Next, launch the app and tap the setting (gear) icon. Tap the the-magazine.org button, and the app launches Safari. Our Web site generates a link that, when tapped, returns to the app with its subscription enabled.
If you subscribed in the app for iPhone or iPad, pull out the article list and tap the settings gear icon, then tap Manage Subscriptions. If you can’t find it or no longer have the app installed, follow Apple’s instructions here to cancel your subscription in iTunes or the App Store. This is the only way to cancel subscriptions purchased in the app. Apple does not provide a way for our staff to cancel your subscription.
If you subscribed on our site, click Cancel on the bottom of our Subscription page. For other billing issues with web subscriptions, please contact billing support. (Billing support cannot cancel subscriptions purchased in the iPhone/iPad app — see above.)
We make one article permanently free in each issue, and provide a preview of all the others. To read more, we ask that you subscribe. There’s a 7-day free trial on the Web and in our iOS app.
