It was promised a few months ago, then delayed for a bit, but the Monocle on Bloomberg TV series finally launches tomorrow (Saturday, January 29). From the press release: Monocle’s editor‐in‐chief Tyler Brûlé will anchor “Monocle on Bloomberg” from Bloomberg Television’s studio in London, incorporating field reports and interviews from an eclectic mix of thinkers, [...]
So far we’ve seen quite a few comic publishers get their own Comixology-powered apps, but as far as I know, Templesmith Comics (for iPad and iPhone) is the first one that is creator-specific. As the name suggests, the app sells all of the creator-owned series that prolific artist Ben Templesmith has produced for IDW. Not [...]
Sure, pretty much every single magazine-related blog has posted the video above, but with good reason: It’s awesome. The short covers, in a chaotic manner, the making of the latest issue of Little White Lies (#33). Although this particularly issue is not up on Issuu yet, it should be up there eventually, joining the previous [...]
I retweeted the news earlier today, but in case you missed it, Rupert Murdoch’s The Daily will finally launch next Wednesday (February 2) at an event in New York that will include Murdoch and Apple’s Vice President of Internet Services, Eddy Cue. The Daily was originally supposed to launch earlier this month, but the launch [...]
Ridiculous boasting aside (“the world’s first independently published magazine exclusively for the iPad”), the first issue of POST for iPad is out, and if Andrew’s review on Magtastic Blogsplosion is anything to go by, it’s well worth checking out (despite certain flaws).

Check out her official website and you’re greeted with [...]
With the new issue of Wired (19.02) out for the iPad, I figured I’d take a look at a few things I noticed. Let me start by saying that I’d be very happy if they did more theme issues like this — it’s “The Underground Issue.” Editorially speaking, everything feels tighter and there’s a better [...]
The other day I posted an aside about The Atavist and the images it was using to promote the app (I quickly got my answer), and I really am excited about the upcoming app — it launches this Wednesday — but after reading a piece in this week’s Bloomberg Businessweek, I’m even more excited. See, [...]
Let me start by saying that I think the upcoming Atavist app looks like a very interesting one, and I’m liking what it wants to do (raise awareness and give a venue for long-form journalism and writing) — you can read more about it in this piece on the Fast Company site). I just find [...]
You know that big news that came out yesterday about a proper uncensored Playboy iPad app coming out in March, which would mean that Apple had changed its stance on preventing adult material to be sold through the iTunes App Store? Well, looks like everyone was wrong. Engadget added the following update to its original [...]
