App Reviews

  • Download option

    By Qwerty Gamer 5678
    Developers why not also give subscribers download option in next update as prior users enjoyed the magazine in airplane mode
  • Bait and Switch - DO NOT BUY

    By iPadit
    UPDATING FOR VERSION 3.0.5: Still junk, just tried the update hoping for some improvements, but the app can’t connect due to “network connectivity issues” which is a good reason for having offline access to the magazine. But that still doesn’t exist based on other reviews. ******************************** Recent app update removes the capability of offline reading; you cannot download the magazine to your iPad and read it without being connected to the internet. Terrible “reimagined” experience. Did NatGeo inform us of this before renewing for 2019? Of course not because most would not have purchased. I also fault Apple for not putting the most recent reviews first in their store so potential buyers can see the latest reviews rather than seven years ago.
  • What a shame....

    By Drl2000
    Like all the reviewers here, I am sorely disappointed with what I have just found has happened to my NG app and all my issues. Unable to read on the plane when I tried today. So disgusted now that I am home and I read and experience what has happened once I “updated” my app. I will delete the app and take my time reading all my dozens of back issues from print at home. Probably will cancel my subscription because you have to take a stand somehow..
  • Used to be ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    By Chris7805
    When this was the online version of the magazine (even including) the adds it was fantastic. I don’t read every month, usually let a few pile up and read them all while traveling, so I guess I missed when they destroyed this app. National Geographic should be ashamed - this really is a horrible do over of what was a great app that was a bonus to my paid subscription
  • Great Performance

    By brettnchls
    I’m seeing lots of negative reviews and it seems to be coming from subscribers. While I can empathize that they’ve lost some features they like, I’ll say as someone who is just starting to use the app (and hasn’t had access to the magazine for a long time) that it works great. And this is coming from someone that has worked on mobile apps in the past. Very modern light design, nice layout, loads fast, and the top notch content we all expect from Nat Geo.
  • Disappointed from new update

    By Diffendooferdays
    I want the old update back where you could actually “flip” though a magazine and be able download to my iPad and take with me on an airplane or waiting at the dr office. But having a download was a big plus when flying. When I was able to have WiFi the puzzles and interactive pieces were enjoyable. Really disappointed and just canceled my membership after quite a few years I’ve had the app. Seems worthless since I can’t take it on the go unless you know the internet will be good.
  • 1.4!Stars and Falling - You ruined it and Don’t Listen.

    By Nomadphotos
    I have not been on for a few months and came back to a garbage app. I have been a subscriber to the magazine since 1990. I have been a digital subscriber since the third issue. This used to be the model. No it is just web articles. It had great interactive features, videos and top notch writing and photos. Now it is just a commodity item. I can’t read offline. I used to love taking the magazine on my phone backpacking. I loved how reading on an iPad in the coffee shop, it felt like the magazine. This is terrible and I am so sad. I read an article and go away and it forgets my spot. Sometimes it logs me out. Really? What happened to the editors article and the best your shot image? Come on you can do better. This app is worthless. 😢 2/27 - I just brought my iPad to my sons snowboard class, hoping to catch up while he was out. No WiFi and my iPad does not have cell service. Guess what I get to read. NOTHING. come on Nat Geo - Fix this and at least make offline reading available. 4/1 - Checked back to see if you made any updates. No and by your comments you aren’t reading or listening. 1.4 stars for Nat Geo. You should be appalled and ashamed of yourself. You can do better. Start with offline reading. 4/30 - We are all waiting for the downloads to come back. I received you canned response about maybe doing something to restore downloads and hopefully all the issues you stole from me. Will it happen? I am heading backpacking soon and looking forward to reading some articles on the trail at night? Getting very close to canceling. 5/13 - Went to read the April issue and found out my subscription expired. Should I let my 30 year subscription lapse. Seems about time. No response and no changes. Your rating is now 1.4 stars. I am truly saddened by the loss of the greatest magazine that was ever produced.
  • Can’t download issues - worst “upgrade” ever!

    By DC Reader2
    I totally agree with other reviewers — eliminating the ability to download issues for offline reading totally killed the utility of this app.
  • Not as good as it used to be

    By Stones River
    Like many others have commented, this app is inferior to the old one. As a longtime subscriber to National Geographic, I really enjoyed the old app, including the ability to read magazine content offline. I hope that the NatGeo developers will work to restore the functionality of the old app. For now, I’m disappointed with this version.
  • Terrible update

    By trb75252
    The Fox people ruined one of the best magazine apps. It used to be revolutionary. Now it is just web pages. Or, it used to be. All I get now is “We are experiencing problems with network connectivity. Please retry in a few minutes.” I’ve been a subscriber for over 40 years and I was so disappointed I almost canceled my subscription. But I realized I can go back to the paper copy. Sigh.
