Just one month after we released the all-new Spectator app for iPad, I’m delighted to announce today we’ve launched a new app for iPhone. Since we released the new digital edition in October, our main complaint was that there was no iPhone version. Here it is:
Much like its larger sibling, it’s elegant and intuitive. Every week, the latest issue will be automatically delivered straight to your iPhone before it even hits the news-stand.
For our existing subscribers, it’s free. For new subscribers, we have an introductory offer of four weeks free (just as with the iPad). When you’ve downloaded the app, simply press ‘Subscribe’, choose one month and we’ll provide you access to the last two months of issues as well as the next four issues:
Our subscribers can sign in with their Web ID (it’s printed on the address sheet of the posted magazines). Subscribers to our iPad app can use their code to reactivate their subscription on the iPhone. And for those wishing just to dip their toe in the water, we also offer single issue at £2.99, a 20 per cent saving on the cover price. The best value remains our annual subscription at £79.99.
The Spectator is the oldest continuously-published magazine in the English-speaking world — but until now, it has been difficult to send the magazine to as much of the world (and, indeed, the country) as we would like. Now, thanks to our digital editions, we are available at 4am every Thursday from Portsmouth to Pyongyang — and we’re delighted at the strength of demand both nationally and internationally. For every three copies of The Spectator we sell on newsstand, we sell two digitally.
