The BMW Motorcycle Magazine is now available on Apple’s iPad! Hot off the cyber-presses, the popular enthusiasts’ magazine has released an app giving readers a completely new magazine experience.
This unique app for the iPad, created exclusively for BMW Motorcycle Magazine, includes all the content of the print magazine but goes beyond by adding interactive features, multimedia elements and exclusive content. The pages scroll fluidly from article to article both in portrait or two-page landscape mode. With the tap of a finger you can zoom in to see the tiniest detail, listen to the revving of a BMW motorcycle engine or watch the videos featured in many articles. Search the content for your favorite model, explore the photo galleries or hear an interview with someone of interest. Share an entertaining page by sending it to friends by email, Facebook or Twitter. Jump instantly to a highlighted website link and then back to the article. The app allows the reader to engage with each article as much or little as wanted.
According to editor Sandy Cohen, “The iPad’s quality, speed, vivid colors and incredible resolution make it the perfect vehicle for BMW Motorcycle Magazine. We’re proud of the way it enhances our work and allows readers to engage with the content and fellow riders. Plus the iPad is portable, keeping our information accessible wherever you travel or just out to the garage.”
Another advantage to the digital magazine is that it is available the day print magazines are mailed; no waiting for the postman! Foreign subscribers will also appreciate not having to pay a shipping surcharge for their issues. Back issues are for sale through the app as well.
The new BMW Motorcycle Magazine app is a free download from the App Store and there’s a free sampler magazine edition available demonstrating some of the interactive and multimedia elements. Regular quarterly issues are on the App Store “shelves” now for $4.99 each (a discount compared to our printed newsstand price) with subscriptions available for just $15.99 for the year.
