Yes – every issue of the magazine and all content is published in what we call ‘device-optimised templates’ on our app. This means that no matter the size of the screen you use, your magazine will be easy to read.

The app gives you the best of both worlds! You can either enjoy your digital magazine in old-fashioned ‘magazine view’, which is basically a PDF replica of your print magazine, OR you can read it in optimised template format. - We call this ‘digital-view’ mode.

On the app, when you’re reading the magazine in digital-view mode, you’ll see a header bar at the top of each article. Here you’ll be able to:

  • Select audio mode and listen to the magazine being read to you
  • Select the size of text you find easiest to read
  • Bookmark features you want to quickly return to
  • Switch to ‘dark mode’ to make it easier to read your content

You'll also be able to access the content almost instantly when you purchase either a Print + Digital or Digital only subscription.
