Customer Reviews

Great! But...

Wonderful. Finally able to read my Nat Geos. Picture quality awesome, haven't needed to change text size. One complaint so far... When my phone auto locks after not having touched the screen for a few minutes (I think mine is set to auto lock at 5 minutes) it scrolls you all the back to the beginning of the article!!!!!!! Losing your place while reading, having to go back and find where you ACTUALLY left off. That's my only problem so far with the app. Otherwise, hooray for Nat Geo!!!

Gorgeous graphics and use of device

I rarely take the time to write app reviews but wanted to comment on this on. I view this on an iPad and the graphics are stunning. NG also makes an effort to take advantage of the medium so you don't just get repurposed magazine content on a digital device. Its a beautiful experience.

App needs some improvements

I love national geographic but this app needs some improvements. The content layout should be optimized for the iphone 6 plus bigger screen. Also the app should have the capability to change the text color background to black so it's easier on your eyes at nighttime. Please make these upgrades to your app and I will definitely give 5 stars.
