Skeptic Magazine Android/iOS app

Postby Austin Harper » Wed Nov 07, 2012 1:33 pm

Skeptic Magazine has a new Android/iOS app. I haven't had much chance to pay with it yet but it will be nice to have access to old, out of print issues.
Android app on Google Play

I have been hoping for a digital version of both Skeptic and the Skeptical Enquirer for a long time. I am very glad Skeptic stepped up to the 21st century!

Unfortunately, it's basically a pdf type file with zoom capabilities. There are some really great examples of how to do digital magazines right. WIRED magazine and Astronomy magazine do a great job of providing the look of the magazine, but when you double click an article, it brings up a basic text version of the article.

Still I bought a digital subscription to Skeptic, it's better than nothing for those of us who just will not buy paper.

Yeah, I played around with it a bit after I posted this. I'm glad it exists but there is definitely room for improvement. I'll stick with my physical subscription for now.
