You've asked for it, and it's finally here. Advertising Age is please to bring you an app for the iPad.
And it's not only chock-full of marketing and media news, but also the industry's best advertising. Now available for free in the App Store, Ad Age's first iPad app brings together Ad Age news and Creativity content in one couch-ready package.
Here are some of the highlights:
Web and Print Content. Toggle between our weekly print-issue content or the live news stream of AdAge.com.*
Offline News Reading. If you'd like to catch up while on the subway or a plane, just update the app before you go, and news stories will be available for you while you're off the grid.*
Read Stories Later. While in the app, you can also mark stories to read later. Then, during quieter moments, catch up with them.
App Alerts. Turn on app alerts, and you'll be among the first to know when a big piece of business or a top job suddenly opens up. Sign up -- we promise not to bombard you.
Creativity. We've created a beautiful home for Creativity content in the app. Set off in its distinctive digs, the Creativity section lets you tap and flick your way through an up-to-date stream of the highest quality work being produced today.
The app is free to download, but just like on AdAge.com you'll need a subscription to view unlimited content. If you're already paying for a digital or print subscription, you can validate it and we'll welcome you aboard. For new subscribers, you can subscribe within the app for $79.99 per year or $9.99 per month.
*Occasionally, some interactive features and pieces may not be available within the iPad app. Some images and all video will require a live internet connection.
