Introducing American Songwriter for the iPad, Version 2.1.

“Version 2.1 builds upon our previous versions that focused on a rich reading experience — adding in-App News and Photo spreads updated regularly throughout the day,” says Robert Clement, Co-Publisher of American Songwriter. “More and more readers are opening their iPad each day, and going to their favorite media destinations to find content.

The News page allows users to see the best stories and photos from inside a clean, App viewer. The App is free to download and includes two free issues [May/June and July/August 2011], and the ability to buy single issues, subscribe for $7.99, or activate your free digital edition if you are a print subscriber by entering you email. We are very proud of this new technology, but want to hear what our readers would like to see next.”

After downloading the free App, American Songwriter subscribers can activate their subscription by clicking the red “Subscribe” button in the top right — then each issue can be downloaded, then “READ” as shown in the screen shot below.
