I’m sort of obsessed with my iPad. It comes almost everywhere with me, especially on my travels and long-distance journeys.
But in an attempt to avoid spending mindless, can’t get it back time on Facebook, or falling into the Pinterest trap, I’m getting in the habit of filling it with great, curated content.
Like digital magazines. Once you find a couple you like, you can look forward to the new issue, have a bunch of back issues to explore, and can pretty much guarantee the quality of the content without getting distracted by another request to play Candy Crush.
Another plus about having digital magazines on your iPad is that once they’re downloaded, no Internet connection is required to read them. This is great for flights back to England, roadtrips to Portland, and curling up at night at Aunty Jen’s – who lives in the middle of nowhere and thinks that WIFI is the name of the new Panda at San Diego zoo.
Here are 7 magazines to check out in Apple’s Newsstand this summer. Just search for the name of the magazine in the app store, or if you’re browsing this post on an iPad or iPhone right now, just click on the link to be taken to its page in Newsstand. Enjoy!
