Oscar Humphries has released Apollo magazine as an iPad app, following his appointment as editor earlier this year. Oscar was previously contributing editor of The Spectator and the launch editor of The Spectator Australia.
The freemium app was developed by Exact Editions, the London-based digital publishing company, which also produced The Spectator app back in September 2009.
The apps can be downloaded for free with some open access content and the opportunity to upgrade to the full version for a 30-day subscription. Both print and digital subscribers to Apollo can use Shared Access Codes to access the app for free.
Daryl Rayner, Managing Director at Exact Editions believes the app will “be an invaluable resource for on-the-move art collectors. The full-page photographic images in the September issue look stunning on the iPad. It’s great to see Greek and Roman antiquities mixing with Grayson Perry contemporaries in the app store.”
