MacTech is available on the iPad with a number of great features including "guided reading", iOS newsstand support and more. But, one of the best features of the new iPad app is what we’ve been able to do extra for our new and existing print subscribers …
Simply put: we’re just including it! This gives readers the best of both worlds without additional cost. Read on to see if you qualify…
App is Free. In addition to the print magazine, MacTech Magazine is now available on the iPad. You can download the iPad application and even get our January issue at no cost.
App Store Support: Through the integrated store, you can do in-app purchases for each issue through your iTunes account for just $4.99 (compared to $8.95 on the print newsstand), or $10.99 for three issues on an iPad subscription.
Print subscribers have an alternative. If you are a new or renewing subscriber, you’ll receive the magazine both in print and on the iPad at no additional cost! Clearly, this is your best deal option.
New Technology: Built to Support Existing Subscribers. MacTech's application is based on the iPad publication technology used by Quark and developed by Aquafadas. "MacTech is a trusted source for hundreds of thousands of Apple developers and techs worldwide, and we are pleased they chose Aquafadas as their digital publishing partner," said Claudia Zimmer, Aquafadas's CEO. "Our discussions with MacTech have been focused on the best tools, methods and experience for targeted publications to produce iPad versions, and together with MacTech we implemented a new, flexible and easy-to-use interface between our apps and any subscriber database, which makes it easy for publishers to link their app with their existing print subscriptions while also able to generate new digital subscriptions. This solution offers new and very flexible ways of supporting subscriptions for both printed magazines and their digital versions. It also offers publishers new business opportunities in digital magazine publishing." said Rainer Heckmann, Aquafadas's General Manager in the US.
