Vanity Fair’s New iPhone App Gives Readers Access to Full Issues

Vanity Fair has introduced a new iPhone app that gives readers access to all of its print magazine content. The Condé Nast title’s in-house team used Adobe’s Digital Publishing Suite to create the app, which has been designed specifically for the iPhone 5. While the magazine’s app was available on the iPhone in the past, only the iPad edition included full access to the magazine’s content.

The iPhone app’s table of contents categorizes stories based on reading time be it, “Short,” “Medium,” “Long” reads, and “Everything Else.” Short reads take less than five minutes. Medium reads take 5-10 minutes, and “Long” reads take 10 minutes or more of reading time.

The app also includes lots of rich media content such as videos, photo slide shows, interactive infographics, and archival articles. Users can share content directly from the app to their social networks or via email.

You can check out the app and download free sample content. If you like what you see, you can purchase issues ala carte for $4.99 each or buy a subscription for $19.99 a year. Existing print and iPad subscribers get full access to the new iPhone app.
