Room to improve

Developers should look to National Geographic for a role model

Charged for the free trial

I enabled the monthly magazine subscription yesterday in order to download a free issue to test. The app stated that would not be charged until the first month had completed. However, upon checking my bank account this morning, I found that I had been charged the monthly fee of £2.99 all the same.

Although I enjoy the magazine itself, the digital edition is little more than scanned pages of he paper edition (in contrast to some digital magazines that incorporate a degree of interactivity).

Subscription does not work

I purchased a 12 month subscription having been a paper subscriber for a couple of years.

Have paid for the subscription via iTunes I was then unable to download the current issue. I spent 2 weeks battling with the developers to resolve my problem to no avail. There customer service is very poor. In the end I contacted apple and they issued me a refund.

So I can't comment on the actually magazine I can say that I would avoid subscribing as you may find your paying for nothing as I did.
