Smithsonian Magazine for iPad Launched


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.

Apple has begun putting together the iPad-specific App Store in anticipation of the upcoming iPad launch. iPad-only Apps have begun to be approved and organized. MacRumors has managed to access the iPad’s best seller lists which reveal several of the iPad App Store launch titles. The lists show several dozen applications with release dates as far back as March 19th.

The fact that the iPad-specific applications are ranked suggests that the applications are being downloaded/purchased at least on a limited basis, despite the lack of iPad availability for the general public. A report yesterday indicated that a number of these iPad-specific applications had temporarily appeared in Apple’s web-based ‘iTunes Preview’ App Store listing.

That’s from a MacRumors report earlier today. Some very familiar names on that list – in fact at least a couple that I’m pretty sure were present in the Day 1 iPhone App Store and now look to be early leaders in the Day 1 iPad App Store.
