  • 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.
  • Tough to read on an iPhone

    By packduckrock1
    Get halfway through the story and either lock the phone or close the app. When you return it always defaults back to he beginning of the story. Frustrating to try and read articles without ever leaving the screen.
  • Digital

    Went for digital issues. Paid by credit card. Was charged and cannot sign in. Authentication failed. Did follow instructions and still cannot sign in. Very frustrating. Waste of money.
  • Come on Nat Geo, you could do way better

    By Cury2014
    A long time subscriber for Nat Geo magazine, and I just notice this app on iOS. I have to say the user interface is just not anywhere close to the top of the line magazine. Contents and photos are still top of the line, but this app is not.
  • I want to love this app

    By joshpp
    Lifelong National Geographic subscriber here. This app has potential, and the content is great, but there are a few glaring holes that make it feel like an afterthought: - when reading an article, if you exit the app for any amount of time (even to quickly respond to a text), you are taken back to the beginning of the article when you return. This makes for a lot of tedious scrolling to pick up where you left off - the text and visuals are completely separated from each other. You read a story and then get caught up on all the visuals it references on the next tile. For a mostly visual company like NatGeo, it’s not a very engaging way to read. - it is completely static. The iPad app is immersive and dynamic and interactive. Why can’t we have a taste of that on mobile? - still no iPhone X support I actually love what NatGeo is doing as a whole, and I’m a big fan of the new, bold, visual approach the just rolled out. But for some reason they are investing in a new paper stock for the magazine instead of a truly immersive mobile experience. Here’s hoping it improves!
  • Crashes

    By Ot fun
    Needs an update! Won’t open and hasn’t for over 2 months since iOS 11. Crashes instantly and so far, a total waste of money.
  • No longer works

    By 790jim
    I received notification that my subscription was coming due and I had not read my magazines for a while. I tried opening the app and it will not load, on my iPad or iPhone. Bummer. I don’t think that I will be re-subscribing.
  • Great way to consume NG

    By Jshsvshshsvshsydvdjs
    Instead of opening Instagram, open this app and marvel at beautiful photos and read great articles. App developers: it would be great if the app would remember how far I scrolled in a long article. It is frustrating that every time I open it I have to start at the top and try to find where I left off. Also when reading articles the sensitivity to move left or right to the next or previous article is too sensitive. While scrolling I often accidentally go to the next article, then when I go back to the article I intended to read I am all the way at the top of it.
