Three of Conde Nast’s biggest titles — Vogue, Bon Appetit and Conde Nast Traveler — will arrive on the iPad by early 2012, Bob Sauerberg, president of Conde Nast, said Thursday.
The announcement accompanied the arrival of nine of Conde Nast’s other titles — Allure, Brides, Glamour, Golf Digest, GQ, Self, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair and Wired — on Apple’s newly released Newsstand app. It offers publishers two things they have long been asking of Apple: greater discoverability within the App Store ecosystem, and the ability to automatically deliver new issues to subscribers’ devices.
Vogue tested the iPad waters earlier this year with an iPad app built around a March 2011 cover story on Lady Gaga (screenshots below).
In a separate announcement, Rodale disclosed that print subscribers of Women’s Health, Prevention and Runner’s World will soon be able to access the iPad editions of those titles for free through Newsstand. Men’s Health will likewise be available sometime next week.
