Mac users can now read the latest Apple related news on their iPads thanks to a new interactive HD iPad version of MacFormat, the UK’s best-selling Apple magazine.
The magazine, which goes on sale on 17th July, can be bought from iTunes via this link.
Publishers Future say the HD iPad edition will deliver “a truly interactive reading experience” with pages that come to life with swipe-through images, and video tutorials and reviews.
A new-look print edition is also available and makes Apple’s popular iOS devices “an integral part of the editorial mix”.
Celebrating its 250th edition, MacFormat launched in 1993 and offers a mix of news, tutorials, practical advice and comment from Apple fans.
Graham Barlow, Editor-in-Chief of MacFormat, says: “Hitting 250 issues is a real milestone; when we launched the magazine no one even knew if Apple would still exist at this stage, let alone become the world technology leader that it is now. The redesign really reflects the changing scene of Apple, and it seems only right that we also launch our iPad edition to complement the print edition.
“Beyond videos, galleries of pictures and scrolling text, the interactive iPad edition will enable user to select what content they see based on the devices they’re interested in. For example, if you’d like to see just what’s available for iPad, without iPhone and Mac products visible, then you can, or vice-versa. There are also links in the app that go directly to the products being talked about on the App Store, so users can go straight from reading about a great app to enjoying it on your iPad in just a few seconds.
“We’re really excited about the possibilities that publishing on the iPad brings and we’re proud to be the first dedicated Apple magazine to really embrace the new platform with an interactive offering.”
