Condé Nast Launches Free 'Goings On Around Town' App




Condé Nast is following up the iPad edition of The New Yorker with an iOS app of its "Goings On Around Town" section. Goings On [iTunes] 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:
Quote:
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 Wired, The New Yorker, and many others -- has been very active in Apple's ecosystem. The company released iPad editions of most of its titles, and is offering in-app subscriptions as well, giving Apple a 30% cut of its revenues. Condé recently reported 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 for iPad and iPhone. [iTunes]

GOAT = Going On Around Town?

What an attractive acronym.

Lets all get a Nast GOAT on our phones.

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.
