As reported by paid:Content in March, the Spectator has been developing a new magazine app for the iPad.
Its maker, Exact Editions, sent through an official announcement and a link to the iTunes store this week: it’s a ‘freemium’ app – free to download but with an option for full subscription to content.
“The app can be downloaded for free with some sample open access content and the opportunity to upgrade to the full version for a 30-day subscription at £2.39 through in-app purchasing. This gives subscribers full access to the latest issue of The Spectator and the previous four years of back issues.
“The app also features pageflow for browsing, full search and can be synced to an iPad, as well as to an iPhone and iPod Touch for offline reading.”
Exact Editions also launched the Spectator’s iPhone app in September 2009.
