Condé Nast is following up the iPad edition of The New Yorker with an iOS app of its "Goings On Around Town (http://www.newyorker.com/arts/events)" section. Goings On (http://appshopper.com/entertainment/goings-on-the-new-yorker) is a weekly listing of New York's art exhibits, concerts, and the like, connected to an interactive map.

Peter Kafka has details on other features in the app (http://allthingsd.com/20110808/another-cool-new-yorker-app-and-this-ones-free/):
Like audio recordings from New Yorker authors that will work as walking tours: Food writer Calvin Trillin will lead listeners through his favorite eateries and stores; architecture critic Paul Goldberger navigates the city's amazing elevated High Line park.The app is free, but ad-supported.

Condé Nast -- the publishing company behind [i]Wired, The New Yorker, and many others -- has been very active in Apple's ecosystem. The company released iPad editions (http://www.macrumors.com/2011/05/16/conde-nast-rolls-out-four-new-ipad-magazine-subscriptions-new-yorker-launch-successful/) of most of its titles, and is offering in-app subscriptions as well, giving Apple a 30% cut of its revenues. Condé recently reported (http://www.macrumors.com/2011/08/01/ipad-edition-of-the-new-yorker-has-100000-readers/) that the iPad edition of The New Yorker has more than 100,000 readers.

Goings On: The New Yorker is available free on the App Store (http://appshopper.com/entertainment/goings-on-the-new-yorker) for iPad and iPhone. [iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/goings-on-the-new-yorker/id452137683?mt=8)]

Apparently this article was written by someone who has never actually read The New Yorker. The section is called "Goings On About Town".

I see your exceptionally clever jokes were removed.

Pretty ridiculous to do that, but whatever.
