Standpoint’s Free iPhone App

Standpoint magazine is now available as an App on iTunes. Owners of an iPhone or iTouch should go to the App store to pick up their free App, giving them access to some of the content in the current issue of the magazine.  

Standpoint is the first magazine to have a freemium approach — the magazine offers a free sample through iTunes from which users can upgrade to a subscription, giving them complete access to the magazine. It is also one of the earliest magazines to be fully readable on the iPhone.

So go and download your free App now. 

Top tip: When first using the App, make sure you do so in a wifi zone, and that you get the sample issue fully synched to the phone. It will take 2 or 3 minutes to do that whilst you are browsing it initially, but will make things quicker and easier in the long run.
