Introducing 'The Magazine'

Marco Arment unveils his new app on his site:

Introducing The Magazine: a modern iOS Newsstand publication for geeks like us that’s loosely about technology, but also gives tech writers a venue to explore other topics that like-minded geeks might find interesting.

Marco had been teasing about a new app on his podcast for awhile, so I’m glad to see it released.

I downloaded the app this morning and read the Foreward as I waited for my ride to work. In typical Marco fashion, The Magazine looks and feels great. As a writer and fellow geek myself, what Marco aims for with his new app is something I’m very interested in. I’m subscribed, and looking forward to curling up with my iPad to delve into this month’s issue.

On a related note, I was reading through the FAQ for The Magazine when I came to the question about writing for the publication. Suddenly, the proverbial lightbulb went on in my head, and I came up with a great idea for a possible article. I won’t give away any details, except to say that this is a great potential chance to expose my work to a much larger audience than I have here. To that end, I’ve emailed Marco with my pitch, and I’m anxious for his response. I’ll report back if anything substantial comes from my submission. I’m excited.
