BRM MARCH 2015 ISSUE PREVIEW with FREE DVD!

Recommended Posts

The March 2015 issue of BRM, complete with free DVD worth at least £29.99 (I'm kidding, before anyone gets upset!), goes on-sale as a Digital Edition on Friday. It will also be on sale in the printed format at the Doncaster Show on 7th/8th February, but be quick as we have limited stock!

The magazine goes on-sale in shops across the UK on Thursday, February 12th.

 

Enjoy – we think this issue is a cracker.

Hi Ben,

 

I have just checked on my iPad and since it's updated with the new version it has lost all my subscription copies so I only have the option to purchase all previously purchased editions and including the latest. I have tried all the usual, Restore Subscription, close the App, even delete and re-install it and still not restoring my purchases. Can you make the App developers there may be a problem.

 

Thanks,

 

Peter

Hi Andy,

 

Thanks for that I've emailed PocketMags through the App.

Hello I'm wondering if there is a problem with the sound of the DVD on the digital edition?

 

No, all seems to work fine. Have you checked that the sound is turned on? Your browser/tablet volume settings might be muted...

Please send me a PM if the problem persists.

I am unable to purchase this issue. I tap "buy", it asks me if I want to want to view the subscription offers, I tap "no" and the app disappears from view.

 

And can you tell me the difference between purchasing a single issue and a 1-month subscription?

 

N.B. This is the *previous* version of the app—normally I'd simply upgrade but in view of,the previous comment about problems with the new version I'm reluctant to do so.

Please try updating the app first. PM me if you have any problems.

Iv'e found that I cannot play the video, When I click on it to play it just brings up the contents scroll thing at the bottom, Iv'e tried it on 2 different android devices.  I tried clicking on the "link" below for the free garage kit but that also does the same thing, It's like links don't work at all :(

I am on the new version of the App, unfortunately I have updated all devices so I can't check the previous version.

 

This is not the first time I have had problems with PocketMags, it happened at least a couple of times with the Hornby Magazine App.

I am having the same problem. It is a shame. I was looking forward to it

I had a similar problem once—can't remember whether BRM or HM. In the end I ended up re-purchasing the issues affected, starting with the most useful one to me—on doing so I was informed that as I'd purchased it previously there was no charge (and indeed I wasn't charged). The restore purchases option had failed to work on that occasion too

 

Note however that I purchased the issues one-by-one, so I'm not in the same situation as described—for one thing the financial risk was a lot less.

I have the same problem. How can I watch them over the Tablet?

 

If you have access to a ipad or pc you can watch them through that, that was how I got around the situation :)
