WHEN WILL MY DIGITAL SUBSCRIPTION START?
For subscriptions purchased within the app on your handheld device, the latest issue will be added to your account and can be downloaded to your device immediately.

For subscriptions purchased on PocketMags.com (for viewing on your PC or Mac), your subscription will begin when the next issue is released.
WHY SHOULD I CREATE A POCKETMAGS ACCOUNT?
It is highly recommended that you create a PocketMags account to protect your purchases in the case of a lost or stolen device, or when you have inadvertently deleted issues from your device.
A PocketMags account also allows you to sync your downloads across multiple devices.

In order to sync your digital downloads/purchases across multiple devices (your iPhone, iPad, computer, etc.), you will need to create a free PocketMags account (under the gear icon called "Options">"Login/Register") on the device you initially used to make your digital purchase. Then, you may login on other devices using those same login credentials to view your purchases on those other devices.
CAN I BUY A DIGITAL GIFT SUBSCRIPTION?
Yes! You can purchase and send a digital subscription via the PocketMags.com website following these instructions.
Once fulfilled, the recipient may propagate their subscription to any device that can run the Nile Magazine App or the PocketMags App. They can also read their subscription on a PC or Mac.
Gift subscriptions require both the gift giver and the gift recipient to have (or create) a free PocketMags account.
WILL THE APP BE AVAILABLE ON OTHER DEVICES?
At the moment, Magazine Cloner (our app developer) has relationships with Apple, Google and Amazon. Each platform requires the technology to adapt the app to the provider's unique specifications.
