And, now, wherever you are in the world, you can read the very best political and cultural writing at the tap of an iPad or iPhone.”

Features on the New Statesman app include: email and Twitter sharing facility for each article; all content viewable in both portrait and landscape on iPad; facility to store back issues; day/night mode; a comprehensive search facility; a co-ordinated table of contents available throughout; ability to play audio files, including poetry readings; and three text sizes.
