Smithsonian Magazine for iPad

Smithsonian Magazine for iPad was released last night and is available in the iPad App Store now. It’s a Newsstand compatible version of Smithsonian Magazine – that includes every story, department, and photo – plus a healthy dose of iPad exclusive content.

Existing print subscribers to the magazine get free access to issues they have already bought, beginning with the January 2012 issue – this is always a good starting point to see, when publishers reward the loyalty of their print subscribers. The app itself is free and individual issues (available via In-App purchase) cost $3.99. There are also subscription plans available at $1.99 for one month and $19.99 for one year (11 issues).

Here’s a little detail on the quality content offered by the magazine:

Smithsonian Magazine brings history, science, nature, culture and travel to you:

* Explore history and archaeology from the Sphinx to Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War.

* Catch up on the latest science from wildlife to evolution and the solar system.

* Travel to the best places from Petra to Prague. Stop at art museums and cultural treasures along the way!

The publishers were kind enough to comp me a subscription, and I installed the app last night. I’ve only had a very quick browse through the current issue thus far, but it looks like a very good iPad edition. I’ll spend more time with it soon and I plan to review it fairly soon as well.

Here’s an App Store link for Smithsonian Magazine.
