Jon Hamm and Lena Dunham Unveil The New Yorker’s New iPhone App

In 2010, when The New Yorker released its iPad app, Jason Schwartzman made the comic pitch. Now comes the new iPhone app, and it’s Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture filmmaker and Girls creator) doing the honors. As The New Yorker will tell you, the new app has “every story, every cartoon, every em dash, every illustration” found in the magazine, plus extra audio and video features. Anyone with an iPhone can download this week’s issue for free. In the future, readers subscribing to the magazine in print, iPad, and Kindle Fire formats will receive full access to the mobile app. Android users, don’t despair. It looks like the magazine will take care of your digital needs down the line….
