  • Useless

    By Nate the pimp
    Between my wife and I, we have been a subscriber on and off for years and have been constantly disappointed in both the app AND the increasingly obvious politicizing of your content. We expected better. Instead what we have seen is more and more guesswork and out right lies stated as fact is in your magazine. You have become part of the problem instead of the solution in our country, employing writers and editors from an increasingly corrupt pool of academia hell bent on achieving their agenda by any means necessary, spouting half-truths and outright lies to the world as if you represent ALL academics. You do not. This will be my last check-in to see if honest change and a return to neutrality in your writings as I no longer believe you are capable of doing the right thing. Congratulations, you’ve alienated yet another reader. Such a shame. Goodbye and good riddance.
  • Disappointing

    By Moberlyk
    Nothing like the magazine. Also, it does not give you the option in settings to cancel subscription. I’m still trying to find out how to do this??
  • Some technical issues

    By free-nickname
    This app worked find when I initially used it. I was able to view my online issues without any difficulty, pages looked great. Now it no longer has one of the issues I’d paid for and downloaded, with only the Buy option for it, even tho it has issues prior to, and afte it, and also allows me to download the most recent July issue. But this July issue no longer looks as nice as before: the top and bottom of the view window are cropped (I am on an iphone X) so you have less real estate than the screen allows, and the page content no longer appears to fit the page as well as it used to
  • App Crashing on IOS 11.4

    By OWowoeowo
    The app doesn’t even open! I love the magazine. Please fix this. I refer to this resource constantly. This is cramping my know it all style...just joking. But, please fix this great resource. Thank You
  • Amazing content deserves better

    By batsai
    National Geographic has stunning photography and great articles- why they would want to present it in a half baked app like this is beyond me. NG won’t even bother to optimize it for iPhone X, which is just plain lazy. Hopefully they will take this app seriously and give it a major facelift.
  • Doesn’t work

    By Frusration
    What’s with this app? I just paid $19.99 and could open the app the first time I used it, but no more. Thinking it’s a password issue, I tried to reset. But it doesn’t recognize my email address. THANKS, Nat Geo. Another frustration and rip off to deal with in the digital age.

    What else is there to say? This app won’t even open. I think there might be a bug?
  • Crash and burn

    By Pontiloof
    This thing still crashes. I am updated to iOS 11.3.1.
  • App has a lot of bugs.

    By Ldhacker
    The swipe gestures are too sensitive and if you swipe slightly in the wrong direction it will hop 1 page forward or backward. Then, when you go back to the page you were on it starts you back at the top and when you try to scroll down it does the same thing again.
  • Why can’t you fix this app?

    By Brotherhood1517
    There are bugs that have persisted in this app for years. Why haven’t you fixed this? Try this. Open and article and start to read. The push the screen slightly to the left or right. BLAM! You’ve turned the page. Turn back and guess what? You’re at the beginning of the article. This can’t be that hard to fix. PLEASE do something about this and other bugs. I’ve kept this app hoping it would be updated, but I’m almost out of patience.
