The way people read magazines has changed

Over 50% of TypeEngine magazine app use takes place on the iPhone/iPod touch.
Compiled May–July 2013

People read on the go, as they wait for their train, as they stand in line, as they go through their day, using multiple devices.

For their reading experience to be seamless, they need an app that is Flexible. Responsive. Quick. Light. They don’t want to pinch, zoom and flip to death a giant PDF that takes forever to download over 3G.

They want TypeEngine.
