  • Last update blew it

    By Belzy Bub
    Please give us subscribers the ability to download complete magazine issues again so we can read offline. This was a fantastic feature and I’d really love to be able to do that again.
  • Disappointed with new format

    By doggonecruiser
    I went to download an issue or two for an upcoming flight only to find out that the app had been redesigned and now looks like every other news feed. Please bring back the prior digital and portable magazine layout that I loved.
  • Please bring back the old app

    By dcnatgeoaficionado
    This app no longer gives the feel that I’m reading a magazine. It has devolved into just another news site, not worthy of National Geographic’s storied history. Additionally, my ability to download the magazine each month is important as I’m often reading my magazines on airplanes or in remote places with poor inter connectivity. The new app no longer offers this possibility. All in all this update is a significant step backwards for how I use the app
  • Destroyed the usefulness of this app

    By Sub Ubi
    No idea what they were thinking! They have absolutely destroyed the usefulness of this app by removing the download feature. I am frequently offline (planes, vacation locations, subways, etc) and could always rely on having National Geographic with me on my iPad. Downloaded the updated app this week in preparation for a sailing vacation - and I NatGeo won’t be going with me! Please, please, please bring back the download feature. Seems it’s still available for ever6 foreign language version
  • Mat Geo Destroyed

    By RossKirk
    What once was my favorite digital magazine has been ruined. Hope they can find their way back.
  • Can’t download and read offline

    By Nutttin'
    I subscribe to the magazine but can no longer download and read off line with this app. Unbelievable. Been a subscriber for 25 years, can barely stomach the leftward tack of magazine over the last 10 years (can you write just one article a month that doesn’t mention climate change?) and now this. Buh bye.
  • A joke compared to the previous app

    By Petacat
    I’ve been a long time subscriber as were my parents. This is not a replacement for the print version (missing lots of content) and can only be used online. What were they thinking? The previous app was orders of magnitude better.
  • Disappointing Update

    By Seeker6801
    I’ve been a subscriber for years. The print edition still comes to my home every month. I’ve used the app for some time now as well and really enjoyed the “enhanced” experience. It was so nice to take my iPad along with me for travel and enjoy reading the magazines while off line. All that has changed now- the app really seems more of a browser than anything else. I can’t save content for offline reading, I don’t enjoy the new format, and I’m so very disappointed in this update. Please fix this, Nat Geo!
  • What Happened to my SUBSCRIPTION!!!!

    By Mr Maloonigan
    I’ve been subscribing for years through an iTunes subsection and now all of a sudden the two are not linked. All archived purchases that I had are gone. Did apple rip me off?
  • No longer interested in this publication

    By Redhead till I'm dead
    They should have learned from the new coke debacle. National geographic had a fantastic app and ruined it. Completely. You can no longer read the magazines from this app. I will no longer subscribe, as physical magazines do not make sense for me, and this app is garbage.
