National Geographic Traveller (UK) iPad and iPhone app reaches 100,000 downloads

LONDON (25 April 2012) — Having launched just eight weeks ago, the National Geographic Traveller (UK) app has already been downloaded over 100,000 times. The free app features full versions of the current issue and back issues for just £1.99 each. Version 2.5.1 has just been updated with enhanced features for iPad 3 retina display.

As a very special, limited time offer, the Mar/Apr issue will be available for just 69p. The price will revert back to the usual cost of £1.99 on Friday 16 May.

Editor Pat Riddell said: “While we knew there was demand for a National Geographic Traveller (UK) app, we had no idea it would prove to be this successful. The phenomenal response is testament to the National Geographic brand and people’s desire to see, experience and discover the world through Traveller’s eyes.

“The iPad is the ideal platform for a travel magazine as it allows the photography to really stand out and the intuitive nature of the app enables readers to have all the back issues at their fingertips — and to search them quickly.”

In partnership with PixelMags, the app enables users to read the magazine offline and in landscape or portrait view as well as offering a fast and easy search function, contents menu, bookmark features, sharing facilities and full online support.

The current issue is available to download at a cost of £1.99 per issue, back issues will also be available. Future issues are also available through the auto-renewing subscriptions priced at £7.49 for six months and £14.99 for 12 months.
