New Features for iOS: Bookmarking and Enhanced Navigation

Our subscribers asked for bookmarking and we listened. The feature is now available in any iOS-supported device, allowing users to create Collections of recipes, ideas, articles to read later, and more. We’ve also streamlined our navigation so that it’s even easier to discover the stories you love.

Just install the latest Next Issue update to enjoy these new features, and let us know what you think on Twitter and Facebook!



By popular request, you can now save favorite stories to My Collections.

Keep go-to recipes in one place. Build a holiday wish list in another. Create any Collection you desire, and use them to easily categorize all your favorite reads.

Tap the plus sign at the top of any story to collect it, and then select the Collection you wish to keep it in.

Access My Collections from My Library, and tap the empty Collection box to create a new one. The cover image of each Collection will be taken from the first story you collect.







Enhanced Navigation

Discover more content with the new iOS navigation.

Head to My Library and touch the new tabs across the top of the screen to access My Favorites, My Collections, and Downloads.

2) Keep up with the news by sorting for the Newest stories, or discover the top articles throughout time by sorting for Best Match


3) Get inspiration for everything from holidays and events to tonight’s dinner

PCWorld and Macworld Set the Pace for a Silicon Valley Summer

New Releases: PCWorld and Macworld

It seems the stars have aligned when it comes to our two newest releases: PCWorld and Macworld.

Just as thousands of developers arrived on scene for the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference, we welcomed our first issue of Macworld to keep us ahead of the curve on all things Apple.

So far, the announcements unleashed at WWDC 2014 have centered on OS X Yosemite and iOS8 – updates we can’t wait to see reflected in the pages of Macworld in upcoming months. Until iOS8 is released to the public, the July issue of Macworld brings us “Beyond the Basics of iOS7, 64 tips to maximize our iPad® and iPhone® savvy. All the better for browsing through the latest issues of our favorite magazines.

And for Microsoft fans, we’re excited to offer product news with the addition of PCWorld, your source for all the latest PC and Windows tips, fixes, and trends. While the June issue touts Windows Phone 8.1 as a fierce competitor for iOS, the two new magazines are getting along just fine within our digital library.

Look out for some deep-diving product updates in the latest issues:
