Another exciting day for the Longform iPad app: two fantastic, and very different, sites have joined our roster of magazines. Los Angeles Review of Books—one of the most exciting, ambitious publications to launch in the last few years—turns out several lengthy pieces every week from some of the country’s best writers. A few recent favorites: Hua Hsu’s history of office chairs, and this free-ranging conversation between music writers Simon Reynolds and Greil Marcus.
Also new in the app today is a feed from Counterparties, the curatorial project from Reuters’ Felix Salmon. Counterparties is a little different than most of the feeds in the app, instead of focusing on a single publication, Salmon uses a tool called Percolate (which was created by Longform friend Noah Brier) to curate the best reading on business and the economy from across the web. By adding Counterparties, you’ll get all the long features from amongst Salmon’s picks, an ever-updating window on the world’s economies that we’ve been really enjoying using internally for the last weeks.
Longform for iPad is available on the App Store.
Very psyched about this. I love the Longform app, now it just got even better.
