  • Nothing there but Buy buttons

    If you don't have a paid subscription, all this app does is try to sell you one. Nothing else.
  • No customization on iPad

    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

    By robhawleyastro
    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

    By Chickenteriyaki
    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

    By MoneyMike1994
    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?

    By rcope
    Really? The app only supports landscape? That's not a very comfortable way to read a magazine.
  • Cannot log in itunes subscription.

  • Love NatGeo, hate the iPad App

    By bcampbell
    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!
