App offers daily postings and the searchable content of more than 60 editions of the award-winning luxury lifestyle magazine.
The Financial Times has today launched a free iPad app for its luxury lifestyle magazine, How To Spend It, which transforms the way magazine content is packaged for the iPad.
How To Spend It editor Gillian de Bono said: ‘How To Spend It is widely recognised as the benchmark for luxury lifestyle colour supplements; we want our app to be the benchmark for magazine apps. When we designed this, our first question was: why adopt a print-style published edition format when we can organise content logically and allow readers to search their favourite subjects, columns and writers? And with daily postings, the app gives magazine readers a unique sense of discovery.’
FT deputy CEO and global commercial director, Ben Hughes, added: ‘The How To Spend It brand continues to go from strength to strength. The app offers new mobile possibilities for advertisers, including a brand hub where advertisers can showcase their brand and products in detail.’
