Not the greatest, but OK.

A bit cumbersome and I found the subscription did not in fact work well. As a basic app it is ok, need improvement.

Where do I get a subscription????

I've never seen an app not eager to take my money. I would love it if I hadn't just spent 15 minutes searching for a way to buy a subscription, which ended fruitlessly. I will delete very soon as I refuse to buy each magazine individually.

This app is one of the best apps I have come across. Great content and superb presentation. Great to read on my surface and my 27 inch all in one pc. One thing I don't see a way to buy a subscription. It will only allow me to buy current issue.

Very nicely done

Visually, this is everything one can wish for: good navigation, high quality pictures, nicely done scrollable text inserts. The text is clear and easy to read, and when that is not enough, it is also possible to change font size. Good work! Looking forward to reading many more articles.

A Great App for History & Archaeology

I am really enjoying this wonderful app on History and Archaeology in an easy to read format. This app is a great digital magazine type app in an easy to read manner and with great photography.

BEWARE: Subscription Doesn't Work-UPDATE

After 10 months, it's still a beautifully-designed app. It's also still late with the issues -- every month! -- even though I pay a subscription fee. I've come to realize this effort isn't quite up to par. Articles sometimes seem sloppily written. The subscription isn't on time. I've decided that I'm not going to renew. Though I think many could like this, it just isn't for me. I want something a little more professionally written. I like it, certainly, but not enough to pay for it...

Excellent Articles, Superb Photos and Graphics

100% great content, no advertising. I don't buy magazines anymore because too much of it goes unread. But this publication has me consuming every word, photograph and graphic that they offer. I look forward to the daily historical Nugget. What a delight, and to think I almost overlooked it because of the cost.

Great and beautiful app

Just one suggestion - add back button at the end of every article. Now I have to scroll till the begin of the article.

A delightful way to discover history

It's the little touches that makes a Windows 8 app really shine. And my History Digest has little touches galore. This is an app that I would give to my daughters on a nightly basis for reading and to spark discovery. Possibly adding external links to further learning about a given article would add to it.
