The NatureJournals App for iPhone and iPod touch is being retired.

Unfortunately continued development and technical support for the NatureJournals app has become fiscally unviable and we are sorry to announce that we are retiring the app. The app content will be permanently removed as of 31st May 2017 and the app will no longer be available on the App Store.

Pros and cons of NatureJournals app for iPhone and iPad

NatureJournals app good for

Nice app, but I would suggest one thing: it could mark the topics you have already read. It would be very useful
The app is well designed with customable font sizes, bookmarks and more. Reading really is a pleasure, especially as the annual subscription is fairly cheap. Definitely worth the money.
Works brilliantly with my paper subscription and makes accessing the journal articles easy and beautiful.

Some bad moments

Unfortunately the App does not recognize the IP from my Institution and does not tive access as does the website in Safari. (CAPES/Brazil).
Seems to be pretty useless for anyone with an institutional subscription to Nature, as in this case the app restricts access to table of contents and one sentence summaries of the articles. Thus downloads only recommended for anyone with a personal subscription to Nature.
Annoying to use. I should be able to access articles while on campus through my university but it still asks me to pay. No scrolling to read abstracts so if it goes below the end of the page, too bad... Ill stick to nature ported throughout my web browser.
If your an institutional subscribe (i.e. Youre logged in automatically through your universitys internet connection) this app is utterly useless. It doesnt recognize the subscription, and asks you to pay, when using the website allows you access.
I tried to subscribe by selecting every possible subscription, but every time I got error. Nature support recommended me to subscribe from Nature website, but I would really prefer keeping all subscriptions through Apple. Nice magazine previews though!
Entered into this app with high expectations, after all it is Nature magazine weekly. Truth in practice, I have been in CONSTANT pleading with unknown support staffers who after many email "contacts", wave their collective magic wands and "grant" permission to view yet another issue, days after publish date--so much for current science cutting edge literature. Recommend this app NOT. Not worth the frustration that you will be paying for monthly. Big update: DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP! Publisher has given notice yesterday it will cease support of this app beginning 2017. Sad to say they apparently jump-started the lack of support EARLY (like NOW!). I am in "BEG" mode again for this Nov 2016 issue.
