PCWorld Digital Magazine now available in a variety of Enhanced formats, and offered free for print subscribers
By PCWorld staff
At PCWorld we work hard to stay on the cutting edge of technology, both in our reporting and with our publication. With that in mind, we’re proud to announce the launch of our newest PCWorld Digital Magazine Enhanced Editions, the Enhanced Android Edition and the Enhanced Kindle Edition—and, just as with the Enhanced iPad Edition, we’re pleased to offer them free to our current print subscribers!
The PCWorld Enhanced Editions differ from PDF and replica versions of the magazine and incorporate rich multimedia content, including videos, interactive slideshows and features, podcasts, and other elements. The pages are all optimized and include support for high-resolution displays, and are remastered into device-intuitive layouts that allow for unique navigation through each issue. Your options include using the interactive table of contents, swiping from page to page, or gliding through article content with the tip of your finger. Embedded links take you directly to related information within the issue as well as to websites for additional content, and the app allows you to bookmark and share articles via email and Twitter.
Print subscribers can access any of the Enhanced Editions in three easy steps. First, download the app from your device’s app store: For Android, you’ll find it on Google Play; for Kindle, it’s available on the Amazon Appstore; and on the iPad, use iTunes. Once you’ve downloaded and opened the app, tap the menu, and then tap My Account to log in. Enter the email address you provided when you signed up for your print subscription along with your PCWorld magazine account number (located on any print issue), and you’re all set.
Once you’ve logged in, your free issues of the Enhanced Edition will automatically appear in the Library section of the app. If you aren’t sure what email address you entered at the time of your subscription order, or if you need to add your email address to your account to get access, visit PCWorld Magazine Customer Service and update your account.
If you aren’t a print subscriber, you can sign up for a subscription to PCWorld and get the Enhanced Edition for free (a $39.94 value). In-app purchase options are also available for nonsubscribers. Monthly recurring subscriptions for $1.99 are available on the Enhanced iPad Edition as well as the Enhanced Kindle Edition, which also allows for a one-month free trial. Single-issue purchases for $6.99 are available on all three Enhanced Editions.
