The Oldie, Richard Ingrams’ ‘antidote to youth culture”, has embraced modernity by launching an app and digital edition.
The magazine is marking its 20th birthday with a new app for iPhone and iPad, available on a monthly (£3.99) or annual (£34.99) subscription, and a digital edition both available via exacteditions.com.
Daryl Rayner, managing director of Exact Editions, said: ‘It is a delight to be part of such a historic step for The Oldie.
‘It really is a British institution and I think lovers of its wry and eccentric articles will be thrilled to be able to read it on an iPad and iPhone.
‘Subscribers can search and read a year’s back issues and enjoy hours of Oldie amusement.”
Richard Ingrams, editor of The Oldie (a self-confessed ‘digital denier’ who does not own a computer or mobile-phone), said: “The Oldie is always ahead of the game on any new technology. Our fax machine is the busiest in London.”
