Today Jim Dalrymple has released The Loop Magazine for iPad and iPhone in the App Store. This magazine app is a new extension of the popular The Loop website, and will cover similar ground.
Dalrymople is known for his straight shooting approach on all things Apple, music, Heineken, and other topics. He’s not a man to use 30 words when just one will do – and he’s famous for giving his confirmation of a hot Apple rumor with just a simple ‘Yep’. Oh, and the fact that he’s nearly always right when it comes to his verdicts on these rumors doesn’t hurt either.
Here’s a little slice of Dalrymple’s Welcome post in Issue 1 of The Loop Magazine:
This magazine will serve as an extension of my interests on The Loop Web site, with articles written by some of the great authors I’ve come to know over my nearly 20 years writing about Apple. All of the articles have been written exclusively for the magazine.
Topics covered by the magazine will include music, design, technology, games, and Apple – as well as others. Issue 1 kicks off with a great piece titled ‘Enduring Design’ by Matt Gemmell. The design of the magazine is very clean and simple, much like Marco Arment’s The Magazine – which Dalrymple mentions in his Welcome post.
The Loop Magazine is a Newsstand title, that will be published twice per month. It offers a 7 day free trial and then a subscription plan at $1.99 per month.
Here’s an App Store link for The Loop Magazine. If you’re a fan of Jim Dalrymple and The Loop, or just of good writing presented in a clean and elegant magazine interface, you’re going to want to give this one a look.
