We have some pretty significant changes to announce. First, VIEW Magazine is now free to download and subscribe to. We decided to make the magazine free once again because even the low yearly subscription rate of $3.99 caused our download numbers to drop too low to justify it. Instead, we hope to bring circulation numbers back up to what they were when we initially launched VIEW as a free magazine, and with that we hope to attract companies to sponsor future issues. This would help defray production costs so that we can continue to publish the magazine under a free subscription model. To those of you who supported us by buying a subscription, or a paid issue - your patronage has been extremely helpful in bringing us so far and you have my thanks and sincere gratitude.
In addition, we switched the system we publish VIEW Magazine with to a more robust publishing platform called AppStudio. The result is a magazine that is significantly less heavy so it takes less time to download and is more optimized per your particular device (iPad 3 and 4 owners will now enjoy images in retina resolution while previous models, including iPad mini, will download smaller image files to match their screen size).
This change also brings one more improvement. VIEW Magazine is now universal and for the first time available on the iPhone/iPod touch. While I admit it’s not the same experience as viewing larger images on the iPad there is something quite attractive in being able to possess works by very talented artists and photographers in your pocket! So please, tell your friends about us and if they only have an iPhone they will still be able to enjoy our magazine for free.
“The absolute best fine art photography I have reviewed. Awesome!”
“This is a great start to a very simple but brilliant iPad magazine. The photography was certainly different, some were good and some were not to my liking, but everything was interesting. The layout was impressive and easy to browse. I can't wait to see more.”
—Marc Sadowski of The Lens Wipe
“I love this app! They have used the iPad format brilliantly! Creative, interactive, engaging and enthralling. I have used many of the other photography apps and been impressed - this is the first that I have felt the need to tell other people about. Great photography backed up with in-depth journalism - all delivered with cutting edge, creative use of form and function. To the developers - keep up the good work. I would happily pay more if it was monthly!! ....and I'm kinda cheap ;)”
“In a world where most photography magazines are either about megapixels or very expensive and/or hard to find, View is a truly refreshing idea. I'm on the 1st issue and loving it. The presentation and built in offline access is just perfect. Thanks View!”
“Stunning photos. It will make your iPad so gorgeous.”
