Introducing Huffington

We're proud to announce the launch of our new iPad magazine, Huffington. With nearly 500 editors and reporters who produce between 70 and 80 original reported stories each day, Huffington is our way of putting the best content together in a new, weekly magazine app for a slower, more in-depth Huffington Post experience.

Available in the App Store Newsstand today, Huffington incorporates Huffington Post's unmatched live commenting and other social engagement tools to allow for greater reader participation in richly detailed and probing narratives -- while also showcasing HuffPost's brand of Pulitzer Prize-winning feature writing. Huffington's elegant design takes full advantage of the iPad's signature Retina display, offering our audience a crisp reading experience, vibrant photography, and stunning graphics.

Each week, Huffington will lead off with a primer on the news of the week, enticing Q&As, powerful photo essays, sophisticated data visualizations, top-tier commentary, and notable quotes from the HuffPost community. Long-form journalism anchors the core of the magazine, with carefully-crafted features exploring a broad range of topics including politics, business, entertainment, technology, foreign affairs, the environment, sports, religion, and relationships.

Editions by AOL Introduces New Features and Advertising

AOL's popular iPad magazine,Editions, was recently updated to include advertising. Starting today, the magazine will include full-page ads that mirror what readers are used to seeing in a traditional print magazine.

Each Edition will have one-to-three digital ads that appear between sections of the magazine – mirroring what a reader might see in a traditional print publication. Some of these ads will be powered by Cooliris, a digital media company that turns digital content into immersive visual experiences that increase user engagement.

In addition to ads, Editions was also updated to include integration with LinkedIn and the ability read the app in landscape mode. Users can now sign-in to their LinkedIn account through Editions, and can also share articles from their daily Edition to their LinkedIn network.

"Editions is ever-evolving – we take to heart every single piece of feedback we get from our users," said David Temkin, Head of Mobile at AOL. "Landscape mode and LinkedIn integration are two of the most requested features for the app, so we are excited to bring them to Editions and give our users exactly what they want."
