Huffington Post to showcase longform journalism with launch of iPad magazine



On Thursday, June 14, the Huffington Post is set to launch a digital magazine for the iPad, reported the New York Times. Called Huffington, the weekly digital newsmagazine will be available from the Apple Store Friday mornings for .99 cents an issue, $1.99 a month, or $19.99 a year, according to App Advice.

Rather than including content from the Huffington Post website, the Huffington magazine will feature exclusive content, said Tab Times, such as longform features resembling those found in Newsweek magazine, according to Mashable.

The premiere issue, sponsored entirely by Toyota, features a cover story about President Barack Obama's deteriorating relationship with young voters.

Huffington magazine is produced by a full-time, in-house staff of 24 experienced designers, editors, and reporters, in order to offer users a rich, print-like reading experience, reported the Capital New York blog.

The Huffington Post's venture into the online magazine realm comes just as the once gossipy blog was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in April for a 10-part series on wounded veterans. Longform journalism, such as that to be available in Huffington, has seen a resurgence recently in part because of online and mobile technologies.
