Check out latest discoveries and more with the New Scientist magazine on Windows 8

New Scientist

Just when you thought we've had enough official apps for one morning, New Scientist is now available on Windows 8. The super-popular magazine is the choice of many for the latest headlines covering everything technology and science, perfect for those power users on Microsoft's platforms. The New Scientist app follows other magazine publications already available on the stores.

The accurate, easy-to-understand coverage of latest discoveries is just one highlight of the magazine, which can be browsed in a beautiful format for Windows tablets and laptops (or PC if you're chained to the desk). The Windows 8 app enables consumers to check out the weekly issue on their favorite Windows device, which includes in-depth articles, videos and reference links. Sample issues are available for free, with individual issues listed for purchase alongside an expected subscription.

New Scientist

If you already have an active subscription, be sure to check whether or not it covers app access before downloading and logging into the app. It's also worth clarifying that the in-app purchases for each issue within the app do not equal a subscription.

It's decent the more the better.


frett says:

Is this a legitimate science magazine? Or is this an Omni clone? Are the articles based on real, peer-reviewed studies or politically driven/fashionable mumbo jumbo?

ZipZapRap says:

you've never heard of NewScientist?


personally, this is awesome news.. Zinio is awful, so it'll be good to get a native app for the only magazine I ever purchase

What about 'medscape' , 'skyscape', 'NEJM' where are they

Thought it was available for wp 8.1.

Cool, I'm an avid reader of the magazine-- one of the bests if you like to read about theoretical physics and mathematics. I'll give this app a try.
