The New Yorker is getting pocket sized. The New York Post reports that the magazine will be the first Condé Nast brand to launch an iPhone app, and it might be here as soon as early September.
For now, not much is known about the app. Scott Dadich, Vice President of Content Innovation at Condé, denied having a launch date in mind, and Pamela McCarthy, Deputy Editor at The New Yorker, didn’t give any details either. “There is reason to think that everything we offer on the iPad will also be offered on the iPhone,” she told the Post.
Either way, the app is on its way. Just remember: No one thinks New Yorker cartoons are funny, so showing them off while you’re out and about isn’t going to impress anyone.
