New Special Features for Our Digital Issues

Phyllis Blog Spotlight 29 Comments

Every few weeks my mailbox will be struck by an infiltration of new magazines. As issues arrive from the printer, they get delivered to our offices first and our mailboxes are among the early places that they land. I love taking the new volumes to my office and flipping through the pages to see the beautiful results of all our hard work. I am definitely a “magazine person,” and love what we do.

For the most part, I’m old fashioned when it comes to publishing. I love to turn each page by hand. That said, when I’m traveling, I’m grateful that I can now take my magazines with me without having to physically haul them around. All that paper can get heavy and my tablet makes bringing our rich content with me easier than ever.

Of course, the other challenge of the printed page is that keeping track of my favorite stories can be difficult. Here in our offices, I have our expert editors to help me remember when we ran a particular story. But at home, it can be a challenge to track down a beloved feature or a recipe I’m excited to try.

That’s why the new app for our digital issues is such a treasure. Each issue now has a range of new features, including the ability to “clip” my favorite content. I can now keep track of my favorite recipes and features, and then email them to myself, print them, or save them to my iPhone or iPad.

You can also now access a free, full-screen preview of each of our regular and special issues. That means you can browse the issue before you buy—just like at the newsstand. The app also gives you direct access to Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and the websites for each of our magazines. That means no more jumping back and forth between the digital edition, different social media apps or web pages! 

I hope you enjoy these digital features as much as I do. If you received a new tablet for Christmas, then this is the perfect way to put it to good use!

Do you have a tablet? What do you love about it?
