Macworld reports today that the New Yorker magazine has updated its digital edition to make it iPad-friendly. Previously the website was incompatible with Safari, but it has now been updated so that iPad-owning New Yorker subscribers will have full and complete access to the digital edition, which aside from access to the current edition of the magazine, also includes archived magazines dating back to 1925.
The newly updated iPad-friendly digital edition will now automatically recognise an iPad browser, presenting a site that has been optimised for viewing using the Apple tablet. Single pages can be viewed in portrait mode, spreads can be viewed in landscape mode, and a single tap on the screen will activate controls for viewing page thumbnails, accessing archives according to year, preferences settings, and much more.
Macworld adds that publisher Conde Nast also plans a native New Yorker app for later in the year. Meanwhile, if youâ€™re a New Yorker subscriber, point your iPadâ€™s Safari browser here to check out the new iPad-enhanced digital edition.
