Kid’s know best

How often do you think of something you’d love to do, or a goal you’d be proud to achieve, but you are blocked because you don’t know how? You put it in the too hard basket, because you don’t know where to find the information, training or resources you need.

This little guy, Thomas Suarez, was an inspiration to our team this morning, as we watched this video of his TED talk. He talks about how he approached his goal, to make an iPhone app. Suarez has uploaded two apps to the app store (including the very cool “Bustin Jieber” – a Justin Bieber whack-a-mole) and he’s onto his third!

Very inspiring! If he can do it, so can we!

ACP launch Magshop app

In the design industry we regularly hear that print is a dying media. Bad news for a magazine publisher right? … Maybe not! ACP Magazines have embraced the digital age and expanded their online magazine store with the launch of a digital newsstand app for the iPad. This app allows you to browse their titles and download a digital range of 16 ACP mags to read on your iPad, including Good Food, Money, Wheels, Dolly, Cleo, Street Machine, Recipes +, and Rolling Stone.

The app is free, but obviously you have to pay for the digital versions of the magazines. Additionally, they’ve developed individual apps for four of the more popular magazines, which you can also purchase through the Magshop app. These apps include extras that you won’t get in the print editions, for example the Women’s Weekly app includes a behind-the-scene videos from the magazine’s celebrity shoots, cooking demonstrations, etc.

“Audiences should be able to access our great mastheads anywhere, and at any time, and the release of this application is the next step in our broader digital distribution strategy,” said ACP Magazines managing director, Phil Scott.

“Magazines have always been a highly engaging medium and tablet devices provide us exciting opportunities to connect with our readers on this platform.”

But if you prefer a hard copy, you can also order or renew your print subscription using the Magshop app.
