Whether you are a libertarian, learning about libertarian philosophies, or are simply curious to see what libertarian media looks like, Reason might be an app worth getting on your iPhone or iPad.
This app is available in the News section of the App Store, where it can be downloaded completely free of charge. It's a lightweight app, which will bring you plenty of high-quality content with no political agenda, thanks to the “Free minds and free markets” philosophy.
The user interface of the Reason app is simple yet sleek, as it features the classic five-icon navigation menu at the bottom of the screen, yet has its own familiar orange and white theme from the website. The sections in the app include Reason.com, Brickbats, Saved, Reason.org, and Donate.
The Reason.com section brings you all the content from the Reason.com website from four further categories including blog, articles, videos from Reason.tv, and 24/7 news.
The “Brickbats” section is a hilarious stream of news snippets written with little embellishment, yet displaying the hypocritical and often idiotic nature of the public sector.
Other features include the ability to share stories via email, save them, and watch the high-quality Reason.tv video in-app.
The Donate button might raise questions for some, but if you are at all familiar with the free-market philosophy that libertarians like to live by, then you'll find that it's completely consistent with the way of thinking. The Reason app and websites run based on donations from users.
