Revisiting the ESPN Mag iPad App

Now that I've had the ESPN Mag app for a few months I figured it's time to clean things up and delete some of the older issues.  After all, I don't hang onto the print editions after I'm finished with them and I certainly don't want them hogging up memory in my iPad.

I spent a few minutes poking around the app and couldn't find a way to remove an issue.  Rather than waste more time searching I decided to send their customer support an email about it.

Guess what?  It can't be done.  That's right.  Every issue you download has to stay on your iPad.  They sent me a nice enough reply, saying my suggestion "will be forwarded to the appropriate department for review", but this is a a feature that should have been in the app from the start.

I suppose one workaround would be to delete the app from my iPad, re-download it and start over.  That seems silly though, don't you think?
