Today a new version of Maura Magazine is availble for download from the iTunes Store, and I’m thrilled about the work that the team at 29th Street Publishing did on it. There are a bunch of user-interface improvements, including smoother navigation & scrolling, smaller issue sizes, improved performance and stability, and an lower overall memory footprint. (Tim Moore did heroic work on the design, which he’s been teasing over the past few issue’s covers, and Natalie Podrazik did top-notch work on the coding.)
For those of you who haven’t subscribed, too, there’s a new default issue for you to download: Best Of Maura, which collects some of the outstanding writing that’s run in the magazine’s first 17 (!) issues. Maura Magazine wouldn’t be where it is without the stellar work of our immensely talented contributors—not to mention our fiction editor Jami Attenberg and our copyeditor Brad Nelson—and I am so grateful for their thoughtful, wonderful writing.
Thanks to the team at 29th Street for their hard work, and thank you for downloading the app, subscribing, and offering your feedback. It’s been a wonderful ride so far and I’m excited for the many things coming up. Drop me a line and let me know what you think, or just to say hi.
