EGM’s Weekly Video Game Magazine, Produced With ScreenPaper Media,
Now Available on the App Store
May 24, 2011 – Beverly Hills, CA – EGM Media, LLC, the publisher of Electronic Gaming Monthly magazine, has announced its EGMi: The Digital Magazine App for iPad is now available on the App Store. EGMi can now be accessed via the app, enabling users to receive the free weekly magazine.
Each issue of EGMi: The Digital Magazine covers the gaming industry from every angle, connecting readers to the names and news that matter most. The magazine features original content that is complementary to the print version of Electronic Gaming Monthly, while embracing the independent legacy of its namesake. Each issue includes an interactive cover story boasting extended coverage from the print magazine, as well as the "Game of the Week," interviews with leading game developers, a first look at new product reviews, and much more.
EGMi: The Digital Magazine, now in its second year of publication, has attracted a solid readership to its unique content and interactive interface. "iPad was only a rumor when we originally envisioned EGMi,” explained EGM Publisher Steve Harris. “Once the device became a reality we started working closely with ScreenPaper Media to develop an app that lets us deliver the kinds of content we know our readers want and further enhance it for iPad.”
“We worked closely with EGM to build an app with many features designed specifically for gamers,” explained ScreenPaper Media’s Co-Founder Dirk Gemeinhardt. “In addition to the interactive elements that readers have come to expect from iPad, we also integrated other options using ScreenPaper’s drag-and-drop back-end to make it easy for EGM to assemble new issues and deliver up-to-the-minute updates through an in-app browser, interact with EGM’s social media communities, and distribute engaging content in native landscape or portrait modes.”
“It’s exciting to be able to offer our readers access to EGMi: The Digital Magazine in this format,” Harris continued. “Installing the EGM Digital newsstand app enables users to receive notifications and free downloads of each new EGMi issue, as well as future access to other digital gaming publications produced by EGM, including an enhanced version of the print edition of Electronic Gaming Monthly. EGMi will also continue to be available in browser and Facebook versions.
The EGMi: The Digital Magazine App is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore.
