    I usually use the iPad version of the app and it is fantastic. However, I needed to get my Nat Geo fix while my wife was out of town with the iPad so I just downloaded the iPhone version of the app and read the September issue. When I went to go to my library to start the October issue, I found there is no way for me to get back to the library from within the issue. I tried swiping up, down, left right, I clicked on all the things to click and there appears to be no way back. Could you please fix this omission the next time you update the app for iPhone. As it is now the iPhone app is functionally incomplete and pretty well useless. To read more than one issue, I had to delete the entire app and re-download it so that I could actually get to the library and switch issues. Totally frustrating and what a complete waste of my time. I sent this message to N GM’s customer service got an automated reply that was very generic and bland. Very doubtful that this will be fixed. :-(

    If it wasn't, for the fact that this company has been around so long, I consider this a scam. I wanted to sign up, was looking forward to it. I did not want the print so I signed up for digital only. They advertised $12 for a digital subscription. I selected digital only yet they charged me for the print version. Ok no big deal. I wasn't going to fuss over the extra $7. But then I could not get the digital version. Customer service did not respond until.... I wrote them to cancel and return my money. Yep, they canceled and didn't return my funds. I thought so highly of NG for so long. Now I feel like they scammed me out of a lousy $19.00. Not enough to spend time pursuing. Just enough to prompt me to write this review and hopefully warn others to stay away.

    Overall, this is a decent app. It allows you to view the full content of the magazine (along with some cool videos) on your mobile device, and I haven't had any issues with crashes or bugs. However, there are a couple little features that are missing that would definitely improve the app. When you switch apps or swipe from one article in the other (which can happen very easily on accident), it will jump you back to the top of the article; meaning you have to hunt your way back to where you were like a nesting sea turtle ;). I would also like to be able to view articles in landscape view; that or another way to maximize/zoom gallery photos. Photography is the strongest feature of the magazine, and it's hard to appreciate it fully when the photos are so small.
