Howard University Launches Mobile App for Howard Magazine

WASHINGTON (September 26, 2012) -- After a long history of delivering alumni news in a printed form, Howard Magazine, Howard University’s official publication, has entered the world of the digital tablet. Using both iPads and iPhones, readers can now download a free Howard Magazine app for fast and convenient reading. In addition to the new app, the magazine has launched a digital version that is more interactive and can be shared via social media.

“We are thrilled to offer this new complimentary mobile application for Howard Magazine,,” says Raven Padgett, editor of Howard Magazine. “As we continue to share the ever-evolving story of Howard University—and its amazing alumni, faculty, students and staff—we want to offer unique and technologically advanced ways of presenting that story.”

This free digital app can be downloaded onto an iPad or iPhone for reading the magazine on-the-go by visiting, and selecting “Download it Now,” or by visiting the iTunes store, and typing “Howard Mag” into the search engine. The application features the new fall 2012 issue of the magazine, which highlights the university’s green initiatives, as well as three previous issues: “Renewing the Bison Legacy,” “Quest for Global Solutions” and “A Gateway to Discovery.” All   future issues will be available for download.

Staff in the Office of University Communications began work on the app six months ago, collaborating with GradMags, a company specializing in transferring printed magazine content to digital tablets.

The university’s printed magazine will continue to be delivered each quarter to more than 80,000 readers.
