App constructed in collaboration with Adobe
Apple's iPhone will be getting a version of the The New Yorker app specifically designed for use on a smartphone. The app was constructed in collaboration with Adobe, using that company's Digital Publishing Suite to bring all The New Yorker's digital elements to bear on the iPhone screen. The app is now available as a free download in Apple's iTunes App Store.
New Yorker goes iTunes subscriptions
Rumors of Condé Nast using iTunes subscriptions proved true on Monday as the feature came to the iPad version of The New Yorker (free, App Store). While individual issues still cost $5, readers can pay $6 per month for four issues or $60 for a year's worth. The discount is a possible first for an iTunes subscription as it costs $10 less than the print equivalent.
