Customer Reviews

Speed up

It's really good this app. Very convenient instead of carrying magazines around everywhere it's right here on ur device. The thing I don't like is the downloading it takes forever. You also need to download like nearly every page. Which is NOT convenient. So if you guys can just speed up the process I would rate and comment better. Thank you if you read this.

Please fix it!

I LOVE Nat geo kids! I used to have the printed version until my mom said I could get the digital on. But when I downloaded the app the magazine won't load, it says "an error occurred, cannot load" so I waited until the next month, thinking that it just hadn't delivered. But the same thing happened! I love Nat George kids and it would be a shame if i had to delete it but I will if you guys don't fix it, my mother didn't pay $20 for nothing!

Past Issues Too Expensive

Great magazine! I would love to buy past issues but they are a ripoff. They cost twice as much as they do regularly. These issues should be cheaper then the new ones. Please lower the price on these so they are more affordable to collect.
