Customer Reviews

Easy peasy

Smithsonian's new App is intuitive and easy to navigate. Library view is great for "a la carte" magazine shopping or linking a subscription seems easy enough via the link at the top. Magazines themselves are easy to navigate (side slide for next page, vertical slide for article continuance. Nice layout and graphic quality too. It's all thumbs up IMO.

Beautiful photos!

Beautiful photography and entertaining articles. Love the interactive components as well!
