Canada's First Independent iPad Magazine Launches
March 15, 2012 in News
[prMac.com] Toronto, Canada - The Toronto Tempest, Canada's first independent politics and culture tablet magazine has launched. While major publications like The New Yorker, Wired, and Vanity Fair have innovated successfully in the tablet space, The Tempest is the first small politics magazine to launch exclusively on the App Store.
"The Tempest is a natural development in the magazine world," says co-editor James Burrows. "Until the tablet, the costs of launching an independent magazine were prohibitive. We expect to be the first of many new, young, and interesting magazines that take advantage of this space. Because we're exclusively digital, The Tempest will feature the same high quality design consumers expect from print magazines but will also include interactive content, audio materials, and videos."
"It used to be that only large corporations with huge budgets could afford to produce editorial content for a mass audience. Modern tablet and smartphone technology changes all of that. By getting rid of printing and distribution costs, all of our time and resources can be devoted to creating a high-quality editorial package."
The first issue includes articles on fresh food, disability art, the future of healthcare, making music in a mental hospital, indigenous activism, poetry, fiction, and much more. Featuring video performances, audio interviews, and an exclusive video of archival footage from a diplomat's trip around the world in 1931.
