Needs UI update 2/5
The UI looks very antiquated and only for iPads. I can barely see what’s on the cover of every issue unless I open them!
Best app 5/5

Good :) 4/5
But can still use some improvements
Thank you! 5/5
Update fixed an issue where once you were viewing an issue, you couldn’t get back to the library. Called and reported a couple of times and now it has been fixed. Thank you.
Thanks for squashing bugs! 5/5
This app has been updated and it back to working order!
I would love to see he ability to highlight and make notes in a future release.
No more library 1/5
New release only shows latest edition.
Please fix this.
No way back to the the library!?!? 2/5
Currently, the is no way to get back to the library from a certain magazine, even force closing the app takes me back to the last app I opened. Also I noticed the they haven’t updated the app in a year so they must not really care about it anymore...
No way back..... 1/5
My sentiments are the same as the previous. Once you open a magazine you are stuck in it. There is no way back to the library other than deleting the app and reinstalling it.
Stuck, no way to go back 1/5
Doesn’t give me an option to go back to the menu, or select other issues. I’m stuck in the same issue. This wasn’t the case a few months back. Same situation as the other individual who posted on 10/4
I bought a subscription for NatGeo magazine and when I open the APP it won’t let me read anything without buying the individual magazine. When I try to log in it tells me there’s no record of my email. But they had no problem sending my billing invoice to my email. Funny how that works. I cancelled my subscription. Don’t bother.
App does not have back button 1/5
By Airtel User
The new app update does not have back buttons on iphone to go back and see previous issues. As a result i cannot navigate to the previous issue . please fix this issue
Bug after iOS 11 update 1/5
I can’t get back to the library! Please fix!
App needs update for iPhone 7/7 plus 2/5
Everything that Nawroth74 says in the one-star review is true. I suspect the problem may have occurred following iOS recent update. The matter is extremely frustrating for those of us who count on catching up on our reading while flying or accompanying a friend during a hospital in-patient stay. I typically read/re-read 3-4 issues while traveling. The only time I can see the “old” menu is when a new month’s digital edition is available, but when I download it, and everything but the downloaded edition disappears. Unacceptable!
Does not work with iOS 11 1/5
I hope this app will be fixed. It used to work well, but malfunctions on iPhone 7 with iOS 11. Problem has been reported.
Current App Version Not Working 1/5
By Avid Runner/Cyclist
The latest version released for the app no longer allows you to navigate back to the Library. There is no way to exit the currently open edition of National Geographic or the newest edition if you get prompted to download the current month. This is a bug that needs to be fixed.
Need Fix 1/5
By Ashraf. 12
Its open to the last issue. There is no way to go to library.
I paid to read this magazine 1/5
Can’t go back to other issues and stuck
Great content but messy app 2/5
Used to be great but ever since last issue I haven’t been able to get back to the main screen to switch between magazines
Archive/back button 1/5
Even though I have a print and digital subscription which includes Nat Geo Plus, I can’t access all of the monthly editions as I’m able to online.
I also can’t use the back button to get back to the list of monthly editions once I’ve opened one of them. So I tried to close the app entirely, even in the background, but when I reopen it, that edition is still open and the back button is still greyed out.
Use to be good ..smh 1/5
There is no way to get back to your library without deleting the app and starting over ... please fix this ASAP !
I paid, now make it work 1/5
iPhone version, as others have said, is absolutely useless. There is no way to get back to the library to read other issues. Seriously?
Make it work or give me my money back.
THE WORST 1/5
It does not even let me download my issues and keeps giving me error S. I emailed the months ago and tweeted them. Their email response was useless and have not replied to my tweet. I think I am sadly going to cancel my subscription.
Abysmal, no way to change months 1/5
Seriously? Was this even tested before it sent to the AppStore?
It use to work great 1/5
After the most recent iPhone update I can’t navigate from the magazine back to my magazine library.
Reverse evolution! 1/5
Used to work very well. Since last update can’t go back to prior issues nor to settings. Someone ruined this app and no one cares enough to fix it. If Darwin was right, this is one is not surviving.
Non functioning 1/5
I opened an issue and now can’t get back to my library. What a complete waste of money. Don’t get this app.
Signing in on iPad 2/5
By The Real RJ Smith
I have been trying to sign in on my iPad Pro for the last hour. I am able to sign in and sign out that said there are no proms on the screen to take me to my old issues or anything. I’m telling you this is not a very easy app to operate.
RJ Age 16
Where is my library?? And why doesn't it save my place?
No way to exit current issue and return to library
App needs updating 1/5
I mostly read the magazine on my iPhone and with the new iOS 11 the app is essentially useless. I may have to delete my membership if I can’t read the issues that I have paid for with my subscription. Pleas fix the issue navigation soon. I have to reload the app every time I want to switch issues.
Can’t get back 1/5
By Former Bronc
After I updated my phone I haven’t been able to get back to the issue selection page. Could you please patch this problem with your next update?
iPhone version of the app is useless. 1/5
I usually use the iPad version of the app and it is fantastic. However, I needed to get my Nat Geo fix while my wife was out of town with the iPad so I just downloaded the iPhone version of the app and read the September issue. When I went to go to my library to start the October issue, I found there is no way for me to get back to the library from within the issue. I tried swiping up, down, left right, I clicked on all the things to click and there appears to be no way back. Could you please fix this omission the next time you update the app for iPhone. As it is now the iPhone app is functionally incomplete and pretty well useless. To read more than one issue, I had to delete the entire app and re-download it so that I could actually get to the library and switch issues. Totally frustrating and what a complete waste of my time. I sent this message to N GM’s customer service got an automated reply that was very generic and bland. Very doubtful that this will be fixed. :-(
Bad App - can’t login 1/5
I can’t login the App although I’ve tried several ways (including changing my password many times).
I can login normally in the web site however this App can’t recognize my credentials
No support was able to fix this abnormality.
Can’t get back to list of issues 2/5
I tried you app support page but there is no contact info...well, there is a lot but no app support email. With the new iOS update, I can’t get back to the list of issues even after rebooting the app a few times
The app needs updating! 3/5
The app UI needs to be updated seriously..
Can't download past editions 1/5
By Lucas Ohara
Please fix app as I can’t access past editions anymore.
iOS 11 support??? 1/5
I can’t go back to my library of previous issues, I’m stuck in the October issue. Seems like it could be a iOS 11 problem. Other than that it seems to work fine.
Great content, needs iPad Pro optimization 3/5
By Pilot Phill
I really enjoy reading this magazine on my iPad. However, when I got my iPad Pro I was disappointed to find that it had not been optimized for the iPad pros larger resolution. Thus, text and pictures appear rather fuzzy. If this issue is fixed, I’d have no problem giving this app a 4 or 5 star rating
Not compatible with iOS 11 iPhone only 4/5
Had to delete from my iPhone until they upgrade to iOS 11. Works fine on the iPad. One star off for that.
Is this company a fraud? 1/5
If it wasn't, for the fact that this company has been around so long, I consider this a scam. I wanted to sign up, was looking forward to it. I did not want the print so I signed up for digital only. They advertised $12 for a digital subscription. I selected digital only yet they charged me for the print version. Ok no big deal. I wasn't going to fuss over the extra $7. But then I could not get the digital version. Customer service did not respond until.... I wrote them to cancel and return my money. Yep, they canceled and didn't return my funds. I thought so highly of NG for so long. Now I feel like they scammed me out of a lousy $19.00. Not enough to spend time pursuing. Just enough to prompt me to write this review and hopefully warn others to stay away.
Can't get it to work 1/5
By mad waygook
The app says my email is not registered, yet, I have verification to same email.
Nothing there but Buy buttons 3/5
If you don't have a paid subscription, all this app does is try to sell you one. Nothing else.
No customization on iPad 1/5
By iApple Man
The iPad app magazine is great and the app makes it very interactive. The one star is for not being able to view it in portrait mode and not being able to change the font size. If the Nat Geo people fix these issues, I'll give it 5 stars.
Better experience than magazine 5/5
Many of the iPad magazines just reproduce the print version with little value add. Not the case here
Interactive drawings, video, and the pictures look better than in print
I can continue reading what I left when 2/5
I open another app and switch back. It always go back to the top page. It's so annoying. And I have to scrawl down to find it.
Not bad; needs some polish 4/5
Overall, this is a decent app. It allows you to view the full content of the magazine (along with some cool videos) on your mobile device, and I haven't had any issues with crashes or bugs.
However, there are a couple little features that are missing that would definitely improve the app. When you switch apps or swipe from one article in the other (which can happen very easily on accident), it will jump you back to the top of the article; meaning you have to hunt your way back to where you were like a nesting sea turtle ;). I would also like to be able to view articles in landscape view; that or another way to maximize/zoom gallery photos. Photography is the strongest feature of the magazine, and it's hard to appreciate it fully when the photos are so small.
Landscape only? 2/5
Really? The app only supports landscape? That's not a very comfortable way to read a magazine.
Cannot log in itunes subscription. 1/5
Absolutely the worst app!!!!!!!!!!
Mrs Mary Joe Pavitt 2/5
Since the update, it won't let me access my account, Fix it!!
Love NatGeo, hate the iPad App 2/5
App should remember exactly the page I was viewing, when I re-open the app. Plus there's some bug that keeps closing a News Article on Venezuala that I'm trying to read in the magazine. As I attempt to scroll down the article, it 8 out of 10 times closes the article! I have given up, will not be able to read the entire article. Should allow us to bookmark specific pages too, for returning to them next week, next month, etc. Even better would be a way to highlight a bit of text on a page!
