New York has unveiled its iPad app, which will contain content from the print magazine and provide live feeds from all the nymag.com blogs. September’s “Who Runs New York?” issue is available as a free download, with the current issue and others on sale for the newsstand price of $4.99.
Also, New York will ensure that print subscribers have access to the iPad counterpart, though the description on the iTunes store warns that this feature has not yet been fully extended. “If you currently subscribe to New York magazine in print you will soon be able to access the iPad edition FREE,” the blurb reads. “Sorry for the delay, but it will be worth your wait!”
No word on whether there will be original content for the New York iPad app, but we’re thinking it’ll include some sort of wild, tricked-out version of the print edition’s much-copied Approval Matrix, fully hyperlinked. Maybe that’s enough to win over the iPad-owning subscribers as they wait patiently for their promised free issues.
The “delay” for subscribers, though? Might have to plot that somewhere near the top-left.
