SANDOW Releases New Digital Magazine Editions for iOS 7

Interior Design, Luxe Interiors + Design, NewBeauty, Watch Journal, and Worth now optimized for iOS 7 with all new interface.

NEW YORK, September 13, 2013 — SANDOW® (http://www.sandow.com), a leader in building multiplatform brands in consumer and business media, retail and e-commerce, licensing and marketing, has unveiled the latest digital editions of its magazines for Apple Newsstand, optimized for iOS 7. The company is among the first publishers whose magazines have been updated for the newest—and highly talked-about—operating system, with its innovative user interface. Updated versions of Luxe Interiors + Design, NewBeautyNewBeauty Spa+, Celebrity Beauty Secrets, Watch Journal and Worth will be available in the App Store on September 18 for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Interior Design is already available, making it the first magazine app to hit the App Store with full iOS 7 support.

“While we continue to believe strongly in the power of print, particularly for high-end, design-driven magazines like the ones we publish, we also recognize the power associated with digital. Our brands have been very successful on the Apple Newsstand, and consistently rank amongst the platform’s top-grossing magazines,” said Adam I. Sandow, CEO and Chairman of SANDOW. “The technology associated with the updated iOS allows our publications to contain more interactive features and tools to further engage our readers.”

SANDOW’s Newsstand editions have achieved the following milestones:

  • Nearly three million app downloads to date
  • Over 45 million digital pages read across apps
  • Close to 100,000 in-app links tapped to advertisers’ websites

Emmanuel Crouvisier, SANDOW’s Director of Software Engineering added, “The new interface focuses on the most important part of any magazine—the content itself—and does away with all other distractions.”

SANDOW’s first app, NewBeauty Celebrity Beauty Secrets, launched in April 2011. Today, the company has eight apps including LuxeBox, the most exclusive home design resource for affluent homebuyers. SANDOW-developed apps can be accessed via https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/sandow/id432466241.
