Citing that staff at the magazine were given a “working demo” of the application on Friday, Capital New York reports that New York Magazine is still working on the app to get it right for prime-time, but notes that the new subscription-based app offering will be ready for its (confirmed) official public unveiling at the Association of Magazine Media Conference, set to be held in Manhattan on March 28.
New York Magazine, which is to this day principally concerned with the life, culture, politics, and style of New York City, was originally founded by Milton Glaser and Clay Felker in 1968 as a competitor to the then reader’s choice, The New Yorker.
According to the app’s brief description on the AMMC’s official website, the new subscription-based version of New York Magazine will feature “full interactive capabilities,” alongside “distinctive features” and “unique design” that will “set a new bar in the in the drive to respond to the rapidly changing media consumption habits of readers.”
It is so far unclear, however, just how much readers will have to stump up in order to enjoy these brand-new features. Be sure to look for the app when it hits sometime next month.
