About a year ago, we launched an extremely handsome Commonweal app for iPads, iPhones and Android tablets, and our goal all along was to make it an integral part of a Commonweal subscription. As of this week, it has finally happened: If you are a Commonweal print subscriber, you can now also read Commonweal using the app, free.
Our tablet editor KeriLee Horan enhances each issue with archival features and other digital exclusives, and navigating around the content, as well as making pages and type larger or smaller, is extremely easy. If you have an iPhone, an iPad, or any type of Android tablet, you should download it and try it out, especially since it's now built into a print subscription at no additional charge.
If you're a Commonweal print subscriber, just download the app from either the Apple Newsstand or the Google Play Newsstand, click the "Sign In" button, and enter the same e-mail address and password you use on the Commonweal website. (You do have to be registered on the website to get free tablet access.) Click here for full instructions on downloading the Commonweal app.
And if you're not a subscriber, I'm not sure what else we can do to convince you. Try a full year of print and web and tablet for $25 (new and returning subscribers only). You'll even get the big 90th Anniversary issue coming out in October.
Please let us hear any comments about this, or anything else about the way Commonweal handles subscriptions. However, if you're having technical frustrations or something isn't working, you'll get faster service if you write to firstname.lastname@example.org rather than posting your problem here on dotCommonweal.
