MacFormat, the UK’s best-selling Apple magazine, this month unveils new print and interactive iPad editions to mark its 250th edition.
The magazine, which first launched in 1993 and published by Future, has built a loyal following with a mix of news, tutorials, practical advice and comment from Apple users.
The new-look print edition makes Apple’s popular iOS devices “an integral part of the editorial mix” for the first time, bolstering content about the iPad and iPhone.
Future says the iPad edition will deliver “a truly interactive reading experience” with pages that come to life with swipe-through images, and video tutorials and reviews.
The iPad edition goes on sale on 17th July and can be bought from iTunes via this link.
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.”
Commenting on the iPad edition Barlow added: “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.”
