Digital Edition Magazines Help


What’s a Digital Edition?

Our digital editions are available on iPad, iPhone and Android devices. A full list of compatible Android devices can be found here;

Our digital editions come in two varieties - digital replicas or interactive iPad editions.

Our digital replicas are high quality, page-turning versions of the print edition. Some titles feature enhancements, including video, image galleries and weblinks.

Our interactive editions also feature content from the print edition but are designed specifically for the iPad. They come with free-scrolling live text, animations and particle effects, variable page sizes, 360 degree imagery and sharing as well as video, image galleries and weblinks.

Please note: interactive editions are usually available for the iPad only, although some select titles are now interactive on iPhone. In most cases, if you subscribe to an interactive edition on the iPad, you will be served the digital replica when you open your digital edition on your iPhone.
