Like many publications that have recently joined the iPad revolution, The New Yorker has now released their own app. For long time readers, this should come as a much welcomed addition to the App Store. In case you’re not familiar with the popular weekly magazine, here’s a description from iTunes:

The New Yorker offers a signature mix of reporting and commentary on politics, international affairs, and the arts, along with fiction, poetry, humor, and cartoons. Founded in 1925, The New Yorker has received more National Magazine Awards than any other magazine.

The app is free to download, though initially, you’ll only have access to the Table of Contents. Each weekly subscription will then cost you $4.99 and can be purchased from within the app. Oh, and Jason Schwartzman also stars in the promo for its launch. It’s an absolute hoot and definitely worth watching. Video right after the gap…
