Future to launch magazine about iPhone and iPad apps

Specialist magazine publisher Future is to launch a second title focusing on technology created by Apple.

According to the publisher Tap!, which will launch simultaneously in print, online and as a paid-for iPhone app, will offer news and advice about the best apps, games and accessories available for iPhone and iPad devices.

The iPad-sized, bi-monthly magazine, which will be edited by Christopher Phin, will feature 132-pages when it goes on sale on Thursday, 26 November with a cover price of £5.

According to Future, the title’s website and own app will act as a repository of reviews and tutorials on apps and games designed to work on Apple’s iOS operating system.

Christopher Phin said: “The iOS platform is as revolutionary, exciting and filled with promise as the original Macintosh or PC was last century.

“But it’s already hard to find the truly great apps and games from the tens of thousands on the App Store.

“We’ll do the hard work on readers’ behalf, and, through reviews, tutorials and more help everyone’s iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch reach its full potential.”

The new title has been developed by the team at Future which creates its other Apple-related magazine, MacFormat.

Pricing for the Tap! digital edition for the iPad and the iPhone app are to be announced.
