Customer Reviews


I am so frustrated with the iPhone apps from the major scientific journals. I recently thought of giving up on Nature for good, and moving to Science, but the apps are no better.

Nature does, at least, have an iPad app that allows you to download content and read it in the same structure as in the physical journal. In the iPhone app, in contrast, content is not downloaded for offline reading, the stories and research pieces are in no particular order, and not all of the content of the physical magazine is there (e.g. a lot of the "research highlights" seem to be missing.

Look, perhaps I am totally eccentric, but all I want to do is 1) subscribe to Nature, 2) download this week's issue, 3) read it. That is how magazine and newspaper apps almost universally work. So why has Nature produced this useless app? Have they got no idea what the rest of the world is doing? Do they imagine that all readers want to do on an app is look at a subset of articles, or search for articles that they have already read? It is bizarre, and so, so frustrating.

Can no longer access content

I'm suddenly no longer able to access any content on the app despite having a current subscription; clearly something is wrong with their back-end services, but how dumb does a developer have to be to simply delete all offline content if a user logs out of the app? Now even the issues that l'd previously downloaded are no longer available!

Institutional login?

Am I the only one who can't seem to login using a institutional login?! Very frustrating as I can barely get much use out of this app at all without being able to log in. Please add login for institutions.
