O, The Oprah Magazine now has an iPad edition. Here’s the short elevator pitch for it on its App Store page:
… The Oprah Magazine provides inspiration and information to help you “live your best life,” as Oprah puts it, while incorporating the exciting new interactive features available only on a touch screen device.
And a rundown of some of the features in the debut issue:
This taste of the December issue includes:
—Oprah personally unveiling the issue, plus an animated cover.
—Exclusive video of Oprah kicking back and chatting with her good friend director, playwright, and actor Tyler Perry.
—Huge O List holiday gift guide, featuring picks from Oprah, Nate Berkus, Dr. Oz and more, with items shown in 360 degrees.
—One tap to enter the “12-Day Holiday Give-O-Way” sweepstakes. The prize: everything in the gift guide—and more.
—“Favorites” function to create a personal gift list that you can email to friends and family.
—Online purchasing option for gifts and books.
—Excerpts from our top ten books of the year.
—Detailed slideshow demonstrating how to make decorative boxes for edible gifts.
As much as I like following the newspaper and magazine titles that come to the iPad, this is one I’ll pass on – just because it’s not a magazine I’ve ever thought of as one I’d want to read. Just not my cup of tea. I know there are millions who find it more appealing than I do though.
If you’re one of those, you can find O, The Oprah Magazine in the App Store now, priced at $3.99.
