  • Time for an iPhone X update

    Been a while reading in a small box. Time to break out!
  • Terrible app

    By hgryjj
    Literally cannot even read a page in-app. It's all a blurry mess.
  • NGM

    This app. Works fine on my IPad. I can read an article almost anywhere. However I wish they would use the technology that allows you to increase the size of the text. My other programs I am able to do that and it makes it so much easier to read.
  • No portrait mode

    No complaints against the magazine itself but the app could use some updates. While using on an iPad, the screen stays in landscape mode which is not how I read on a tablet. It would be nice to have the option geared towards personal preference.
  • Please, support to vertical screen view mode!

    I love to read the National Geographic Magazine. But wide screen view is a bit uncompotable to me. Vertical screen view mod on ipad was available but not now.
  • Worthless app

    By Aryfrosty
    The app is completely a waste of time. It posts itself as ‘free’ with ‘in app purchases’ but when you load it there is nothing you can do until you ‘subscribe’ and pay them. Nothing! You can buy downloads of magazines but you cannot even get links to stories. If I could have seen what the company offers in their app? Maybe. I subscribed for 13 years when I was younger, buying the hard cases and saving all those years for the kids to refer to in school. Now it simply resembles a publishers clearing house ad with a dignified cover and no ‘free’ stuff that isn’t.
  • 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
