The Huffington Post Media Group has announced the launch of Huffington, a new, weekly magazine app for a slower, more in-depth Huffington Post experience. The new app incorporates Huffington Post’s live commenting and other social engagement tools, to enable greater reader participation in richly detailed and probing narratives, while at the same time highlighting HuffPost’s Pulitzer Prize-winning feature writing. Huffington’s design takes full advantage of the new iPad’s Retina display, offering a crisp reading experience, vibrant photo layouts, and stunning graphics.
Each week Huffington will feature a primer on the news of the week, as well as Q&As, photo essays, data visualizations, top-tier commentary, and quotes from the HuffPost community. Long-form journalism will be the main heart of the app, exploring such topics as politics, business, entertainment, technology, etc. The magazine will also feature reviews built around culture and the zeitgeist, including television, film, music, lifestyle, and the Greatest Person of the Week.
The premiere issue features Peter S. Goodman’s analysis of Barack Obama’s strained relationship with young voters and its impact on the 2012 US presidential election, as well as a Michael Hogan profile of the challenges facing independent filmmakers in Hollywood, and Tom Zeller’s exploration of the impact of toxic waste dumping on an Alabama small town.
You can get a one-month trial of Huffington for free, and after that it will cost $0.99 per issue, $1.99 per month, or $19.99 annually.
