    I have a few magazines that i read thru the iPad Newsstand app. In the settings I have the box checked to automatically download new issues. They never download automatically. Why?

    Bump. Anybody got any ideas? One of the features of the iPad was that content would download automatically. Is this not the case?

    Hi Newps...sometimes the immediate fixes often times help.

    Have you tried to do the following?

    1. Force the app to close?
    2. Try to restart your iPad?
    3. Try to do a reset?

    You can try this in order, if an app becomes misbehaves...

    Force the app to close down*by pushing the home button twice or by doing a 4-finger swipe to bring up your multi-task bar. This will show all the apps that you have visited. Press the app, until it begins to shake. Close out the apps by pressing the red circle in each app. It will only quit the app and not delete. Than try to re-open the app and test out.

    If that doesn't work, restart the iPad by pressing the power switch down to power off.

    Third is to do a reset by holding the power switch and home button together until you see the apple logo. Hope that helps!

    None of that does anything. I'm actually on my second iPad, having sold the 2 for a 3. Same deal, the magazines do not automatically download as they become available. I have to go in and do it manually.

    Some of mine do, and some don't. I think it's an app by app thing rather than Newsstand itself.

    I see the same thing and agree it seems to be dependent on the title.
