U.S. News Weekly Now Available on iPad
(Press Release) Washington, D.C., July 28, 2011—U.S. News Media Group announced today that its U.S. News Weekly App for iPad is now available on the App Store. Readers can now experience U.S. News Weekly's insightful content and compelling features by purchasing a monthly subscription for only 99¢ through In-App Purchase on the App Store. Existing subscribers have access to the iPad edition immediately through their current subscription, and for new users, access to the first issue is free.
U.S. News Weekly debuted in January 2009 as a digital-only publication from the editors of U.S.News & World Report, combining the magazine-reading experience with the timeliness and flexibility of the Internet. The app's functionality, multimedia, and interactivity add new layers of versatility to U.S. News Weekly.
"We're doing what a newsweekly does best: stopping a frantic world for a moment to take stock of events and make sense of it all," says Editor Brian Kelly. "As one of our many content offerings, the new app allows us to bring more readers into the fold. iPad's many features are creating new ways for us to help people understand what's going on in the world today."
The U.S. News Weekly App for iPad is free to download from the App Store. Once the app is installed, users can read the current issue at no charge. After getting that first issue for free, users can, with one click, sign up for a monthly subscription. The subscription is automatically renewed through the subscriber's iTunes account until canceled.
U.S. News Weekly includes videos to give subscribers a more in-depth view of current events. On the iPad, these videos take advantage of Apple's innovative AirPlay video streaming, which brings U.S. News Weekly content to life on the big screen. The app also offers features that make reading the magazine on an iPad user-friendly, including swipe navigation and interactive quizzes.
