Photo Galleries

Space isn’t such a big issue with WI digital, so you will find several galleries containing photos we can’t fit in the printed magazine.

    subscription renewal is way behind paper version, just got paper version of WI for October and said to renew subs which I have done on line but now have started with September, not good! Should have waited until November issue out but was told on buying it would ask which issue I wished to start with – it did not! Watch out paper to digital subscribers!

    Hi again Rob,

    I seem to have cancelled my subscription to WI in error when I was trying to unistall the app in order to reinstall it. How do I cancel this cancellation, if that makes sense?

    • Mark From WI Mark From WI says:

      Hi Clive,
      The most recent update is cursing problems on some devices and we are working hard to get it fixed as soon as we can. In regards to the subscription cancellation, you will need to contact google as it is them how deal with all matters regarding payments.

    Hi Rob,
    I access WI digital on both my Nexus 7 and Galaxy 2 tabs, but both crash without opening now. I get the error message saying, “Unfortunately WI has stopped working now” I have uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. Any ideas why this is happening all the time?
