I’m delighted to launch today a brand new app for the Spectator on the iPad. We’ve redesigned the whole app from scratch to provide an easier, clearer and more elegant way to read the magazine digitally. Every Thursday morning, the latest issue will be automatically delivered straight to your tablet before it even hits the newsstand:

To celebrate the launch, we’re offering a month’s free subscription to the Spectator. When you’ve downloaded the app, simply press Subscribe, choose one month and we’ll provide you access to the last six weeks of issues as well as the next four issues:

As well as providing a better experience, you can now listen to each week’s View from 22 podcast while browsing the magazine. It’s the perfect way to gain an insight into what our writers are thinking:

Alongside this offer, existing magazine subscribers can sign in with your Web ID and download the magazine for free. We also offer single issue and annual subscriptions that are the cheapest way to read the magazine. As we’ve said before on Coffee House, the methods and formats of the reading the Spectator have changed significantly since the magazine was first published in 1828. Today is the first step towards a whole new way to enjoy the Spectator. You can download the new app here (iPhone and iPad) and here (Samsung, Kindle Fire and all other Android)  and I look forward to hearing your feedback. To get four weeks free, just cancel at any time before the forth week. But we really do think – and hope – you’ll be addicted by then. Life’s too short not to read The Spectator.
