Just wanted to follow up on my previous comment. I did wind up receiving a full refund for the Chickens magazine subscription and back issue from Amazon after contacting their app store customer service. Hope this helps someone else if they have had this problem.

I have always enjoyed reading Chickens magazine that I purchased at my local TSC store. I was glad to see that it now available by subscription and also electronically. I purchased a subscription and back issue using the Chickens magazine app through Amazon in February. Now my app no longer works and I find that it has been pulled from Amazon, Google Play, and iTunes. So I no longer have access to my purchased content. I have contacted Amazon but haven't heard back yet. Needless to say I feel somewhat ripped off. I feel I should have been at least offered the print version of the material I purchased if the app was being discontinued. Surely, this is not the way you do business?
