The Huffington app is the magazine by HuffingtonPost.com, which brings you exclusive content straight to your iPhone or iPad on weekly basis.
With a beautiful interface which is also highly user-friendly, this app incorporates infographics, photos, narratives, and other features which make it a highly engaging way to receive content including news and opinions from the Huffington community around the world.
You'll be pleased to know that the Huffington app is available completely free of charge from the News section of the App Store. Although there used to be a fee of 99 cents for each issue, this is no longer the case as the generous folks over at HuffingtonPost.com have decided they want to make content available to users for free.
So, every week you'll receive hand-picked content from The Huffington Post that you can download and read when you are offline. You can choose to navigate to the various articles or simply go through the content by swiping left or right.
Users will be able to look for their favorite section or page using the Issue Page Viewer for easier navigation. When you find an article which you'd like to share, you can do so via the app thanks to social media integration. You can post these articles to Facebook or Twitter, and you can email them if you like.
The one drawback to this app is that there are no notifications when new issues are available for download, so users need to go into the app and check for it. I wondered if it was just the setting on my iPhone that prevented me from receiving the new content notifications, but it turns out that other users are also having the same issue describe “subscribing” to the magazine.
