If you long for the days when flight attendants handed out magazines on long flights, you may be interested in a new app available for free on iTunes.
Inflight, available in the iTunes store, allows you to download free magazines to read on your iPad or iPhone while in the airport or in flight.
Inflight is not the greatest thing since sliced bread because the magazine selection is quite limited.
But if you are a sportsman who is keen on Field & Stream, a photographer who reads Popular Photography, a tinkerer who loves Popular Science, or a liberal who enjoys The Nation, read on!
Download Magazines for Free with the Inflight App
Here is how it works:
- download the magazines at home
- when you get to the airport, open the Inflight reader app to start a 24-hour reader session
- read the magazines on the airplane — you don’t need an internet connection
The app works at 600 U.S. airports and 30 international airports.
About two dozen magazines are currently offered.
The Inflight reader app is a way for magazine publishers to market their content to a captive audience; they make their magazines available for free for 24-hours.
Did I mention Archie and Betty & Veronica?
They are available for free on the app, too.
