Having the same issue as other users. The app recognizes the account number and says to sign in using your recently created password, only it never prompted you to create a password. The it doesn't recognize the email address as valid when you try to create a new password.

Not available for print subscribers

You need to make available for current print subscribers. My 7 year old want to flip through his magazine on my iPad not through paper. The times they are changing. We got the subscription as a gift. If you don't make available for print subscribers you are really missing the boat. I will probably tell the gift giver not to renew.

Slap in Face to Print Subscribers!

I would like to give this app 0 stars. National Geographic has changed from an organization supporting education and conservation to a money-grubbing, time-wasting, black hole targeting children!! Every other magazine I purchase allows free app access to purchased magazines. This app, which targets children, requires subscribers to pay twice for the same subscription! In addition, this organization has a website, "Animal Jam," (again targeting children) which is advertised as a free entertaining/educational game for children. After you set up a free account for your child, he/she is bombarded with ads encouraging him/her to purchase a "membership" at $5.99/month!! It soon becomes apparent that "non-members" are second-class citizens in "Jamal." The membership extortion enables children to earn imaginary gems to buy imaginary junk that is more plentiful and "cooler" than the imaginary junk available to non-members. There are many more imaginary benefits for members, but when the membership lapses - every "member" benefit the child has earned gems to buy is repossessed! What a racket!! I grew up respecting The National Geographic Society. What happened to their integrity?

Please offer iPad subscriptions for print customers!!!

You keep saying, " You're working on it," yet no progress is being made. If customers are paying for the printed magazine you need to offer it for the iPad. This would be great for your target audience. We also subscribe to " National Geographic Little Kids." Same issue applies......please offer digital subscriptions!!!! Get with the times!

What about print subscribers???

Why isn't this available for free to print subscribers? My son would like to read it on the iPad in addition to his print copy. You should not charge customers twice for the same product.

My son loves this magazine. Once you make this available for print subscribers, I'll change this from a 1 to a 5.

Great but get rid of the advertising

My kids love this app but why are movie trailers built into it? I wanted to give it 5 stars but can't with such advertising in each issue.

Mail copy is more current than Digital copy

Blue zoom's Review of National Geographic Kids

Reviewed on 12/16/18 12:47 PM

We have both the magazine by mail and the digital copy in Ipad. My daughter usually cut stuff out from the magazine and I thought the digital copy will be good for future reference. We have received the February copy in mail by mid Jan but the digital copy is still Dec/Jan 12 edition. When does this get updated on Ipod Newstand? I am disappointed that we pay for both subscriptions and have not received the digital copy. I am still trying to find a way to cancel my digital subscription.

Free for current print subscribers!

How are you going to say that you are "working" on making it free for print subscribers then one day just remove that from the description and pretend it was never there?? That is deceptive. Other magazines are already doing this and it greatly complements the print edition while also easing the switch to digital. Don't be left behind because it is too hard or you are too stingy.

Excited but Sad

I was very excited to get this app since I have started to get the magazine through the mail. It would be great to be able to put the subscription I have on the app though, since getting 2 subscriptions would be a waste. The National Geographic app allows you to add your subscription hopefully the kids version will too.
