So what’s the deal? PressReader is an app (for iPhone, iPad, Android, Honeycomb, Blackberry, PC/Mac, although I only used the iPad version) that lets you read tons (and I do mean tons) of newspapers from all around the world. It’s quite impressive how many titles — and countries — are covered, and although I only [...]

Starting April 23, Starbucks (in the US) will be offering at all its locations free access to the full library of Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited, which contains a rotating collection of 8000 comics. Would be interesting to see something similar happen with magazine titles, maybe with Zinio for example. Marvel’s Digital Comics Unlimited to Stream Free at [...]
The new issue of Elephant is out (#6), and not only is it available in print, but for the first time I notice that you can also purchase a digital edition (for previous issues as well). The digital option is available from the Elephant website, but they also offer it through Other Edition (a site/service [...]

As this Mediaweek piece suggests, they certainly need to try something different to stand out, but I’m not quite sure how something that combines both these titles could really work. But hey, I’m curious to find out, and [...]
Yes, yes, we’re all in agreement, Bloomberg Businessweek is a beautifully designed magazines — as this post from earlier in the week attests — and don’t you know it, creative director Josh Tyrangiel is a matter-of-fact “Boy Wonder.” Question is, where’s the proper — Zinio need not apply — iPad edition? There are reports that [...]
A lot of media sites were covering the announcement today (or yesterday, depending on where you are in the world) that Harper’s Magazine is now available for iPad, with a huge emphasis on the iPad part. After not being able to find it on the iTunes App Store, I checked out some more of the [...]

To produce? Maybe for the content itself (although for the most part, content is shared between the two), but one of the biggest selling points for going digital is to save on printing costs and distribution. I do still have problems with some of the points this piece from Forbes brings up though on the [...]

I was reading this piece at WWD on Adobe’s digital magazine initiative and the release of the new iPad edition of Martha Stewart Living (which uses the Adobe platform), and found this bit near the end rather interesting: Adobe is now moving on to National Geographic. When I reviewed the current National Geographic iPad app [...]
