FAQ

Modern Molosser is a digital quarterly magazine, specifically designed to be read on your computer, as well as on tablets and smart phones (Apple, Android and Kindle).

Yes. Modern Molosser was founded in 2009 as a traditional, hard-copy magazine, but in November 2014 we reintroduced the magazine as a digital-only publication.

First, a digital magazine is much more affordable for our readers: Because we do not have to physically print and mail the magazine, we can make it available to you at a fraction of the price that we charged for a print subscription, whether you live in California or Croatia.

Second, digital magazines have an advantage that print ones do not: They allow us to incorporate video and audio coverage. When our magazine was paper, we had to rely on words and static photos to describe a dog to you, or to share an interview with a special Molosser person. Now you can experience these sights and sounds for yourself, almost as if you are there alongside us. We have to say that this immediacy and fluidity is one of the most exciting things about publishing a magazine digitally.

There are three Modern Molosser subscription levels:

  • The Basic subscription ($17.99) gives you access to our current issue, as well as the next three ones. You can choose to read your basic subscription on one of four platforms: your computer, your Apple device (iPad or iPhone), your Android device (either smart phone or e-reader) or your Kindle (2nd Generation Kindle Fire or higher).
  • The All You Can Read subscription ($29.99) gives you the Basic subscription as well as access to our continuously expanding archive of past issues. The archive includes articles from our out-of-print back issues, which are being added regularly, as well as bonus content throughout the year.

• Our best value, the All You Can Read PLUS subscription ($34.99), gives you the same enhanced features as our All You Can Read subscription on your computer, PLUS access to the magazine on the mobile platform of your choice: Apple, Android or Kindle. All for just $5 more!

Yes. An Apple subscription to Modern Molosser gives you access to the magazine on all the devices with your Apple ID, whether they are iPads or smart phones. The same applies to Android users.

Not at all. We design our magazine specifically for the device on which it will be read. On average, our stories display on Apple and Android phones in 11 point type. No squinting, or pinching your screen to enlarge.

Absolutely! Subscribing through this website will give you access to our current issue (Basic Subscription) or our current issues plus our archive (All You Can Read Subscription).

We do still have some of our print back issues, though many are sold out. You can email us at info@modernmolosser.com for more information on available back issues.

If you want access to all our past issues, the All You Can Read or All You Can Read Plus digital subscription will provide you access to our sold-out content as well.

Kindle

The Modern Molosser app is available for 2nd generation Kindle Fires and higher. It is not available for first-generation devices.

To determine what generation your Kindle is, select Settings>More>Device, and look for the serial number. Kindles with serial numbers beginning with D01E are first generation and are not able to read our app.

If you have a second-generation Kindle or higher, just visit the Amazon Play Store on your device. Then proceed as you would with Android, as above.

We know that it’s frustrating when you can’t get an app to work properly, or have difficulty downloading an issue. We want it to work as much as you do, and most of the time it does. Sometimes, however, technological glitches do happen. We want you to know that we are here to help you solve those issues.

Before you contact us, please note these simple trouble-shooting tips:

  • Make sure you have enough memory. Modern Molosser issues contain lots of video and audio content, so they are almost 400 MB each. You’ll need double that to ensure that they load properly. Having more than 1 GB per issue is a good rule of thumb.
  • Make sure your operating system is updated. Many times, having an out-of-date operating system can prevent you from searching for apps or downloading them properly. Check your Settings icon on your home screen; if it has a little red dot in the upper right corner with a number that might signal that you have an upgrade pending.
  • Shut down and restart your phone or tablet. Sometimes, it’s just that simple.
  • Delete and reinstall the app. This can do the trick sometimes, too.
  • Check your settings. If your magazine stops downloading repeatedly, check “Settings” and see if you have your device set to go to sleep during the download process. If so, remove that setting.

No worries: Send an email to support@modernmolosser.com, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
