Inferior to previous version

3
The newly updated version of this app is distinctly inferior to the previous version. You can’t set bookmarks any more, so unless you read the entire magazine in one sitting, you have to remember where you were. Also, in articles where you should be able to see multiple pictures by touching the picture or swiping left or right, you can only see the initial picture. There’s no way to see the others.

WARNING! DELETE THIS APP OR IT MIGHT BRICK YOUR IPAD!

Saw that Smithsonian now says you can read the print magazine on your iPad, if you subscribe, which I do. Great, I thought, update and try it. Not only did this not work, it nearly bricked my iPad. Finally got it working again after some effort. THIS IS A DANGEROUS APP AND SHOULD BE IMMEDIATELY DELETED BY EVERYONE! I cannot understand why the overwhelming majority of magazines have useful apps where I can read my print subscription and Smithsonian has been a major fail in this area literally for years. I doubt the app developers ever read these, but if you do: Shame on you. FIX THIS!!!!!!!!!M

Great Magazine, lame ap

5
I have been reading the magazine for decades and usually find the subject matter of the article’s interesting and informative. The writing is always top notch. The ap, however, is pretty minimal. You see pretty much a copy of the printed version, in portrait mode only. My complaint is you get no control over the page presentation - no scaling or other controls are offered. Fine for those with 20-20 vision. The ap doesn’t take any advantage of the digital medium.

Crappy app

So little functionality for selecting and saving text and articles. Just a glorified pdf reader.

Poor app

As others note, you can't activate your account, so this is worthless! Time to cancel print sub as well

Don’t bother

This is a terrible app. I have to download the same issue every time I want to read it. It does not remember where I was when I quit reading the last time. It’s completely user unfriendly. You’d think Smithsonian could come up with an app that works. I love reading the magazine when I’m traveling, but this process may make me drop my subscription. A previous version was great. This one is awful. What a waste.

No longer offering digital

1
What Smithsonian says if you call their 800 number is they no longer offer a digital version. They also say the digital apps are provided by your device third party developers and are not part of the Smithsonian, therefore, are independent. That is why I would have to pay twice - once for a third party app and once for the real (print) deal. No thanks-not getting either. Only want digital offered by the real deal.

Crap

Awful, won’t let me access

DO NOT GET THIS APP

1
Used to work fine but then stopped downloading new issues. Only gave me the first three pages. Smithsonian won't take responsibility. Says it is an Apple problem. Apple says all my other apps work fine so it is a Smithsonian problem. Smithsonian says their IT will address and call me back but they never do despite repeated calls from me. Smithsonian Customer Service says nothing they can do, no offer of refund, no "what can we do to make things right". I've been a member for more than 25 years but no more. Worst example of customer service and giving the finger to a customer I've ever had. What a joke!!
