Very Disappointed

I have been a subscriber to the National Geographic for decades. I was delighted when the digital version was introduced since I could archive past issues, access interactive features and enjoy the magazine in stunning colour and clarity. Now, I can’t even sign on. What happened and why?

I’ve subscribed to National Geographic since I was a child (40 years) and I can’t comprehend the decline of the magazine’s digital experience. I left a review a year ago when the interface changed (for the EXTREME WORSE) and was told then ‘we’ll take your feedback under advisement for upcoming changes’... we’ll what’s happened?? It’s gotten worse. Incomplete articles, lack of navigation ability back to the home screen when in an article, completely incomprehensible interface to understand what’s in the actual paper issue. This app is garbage. I desperately hope I can resist renewing unless it’s improved.

No more fun

Don’t like this new app at all. No fun to use it. Looks just like any other web articles I can read online anywhere. All the specialness is gone. I’ve been reading the magazine since I’ve been 10. That was 44 years ago. Been using the iPad version since it came out. What a sad moment. Please fix it soon so I can enjoy again.
