    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:
    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.
