A free update to our iPhone app has just hit the iTunes Store this week. We've given the app a total overhaul, making it even easier and more fun to read and share all the latest news from the future on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
The update is free for existing users (and free to download new, too!). You'll now see a cleaner, faster interface for viewing posts in all the site's major categories; a new Featured bar that gives you quick access to the most important stories of the day; better offline access, with the ten most recent posts from every category preserved until your next online update; and integrated Facebook and Twitter sharing, making it dead-simple to share articles with friends.
Just like before, you'll get almost every article from each issue of the magazine, plus all of our web-exclusive news posts and special features every day. We hope you enjoy it!
Android users, we have not forgotten you -- there's a treat in store for you very soon.
Are we discriminating against Android Popular Science? Are you owned by Apple? Not happy about this!
Why is there no android app?
If they really know anything about the future they would have already made an android app.
weak popsci.. get with the times
iPhone app is a total fail. Sure it's got adds it's free, problem is there is no way to make them fully go away to read content. Even minimized about a quarter of the screen is adds, all for fords. The content also has not refreshed since the "Check out our new iPhone app" banner. Thanks but no thanks. Smartphones can deal with your add splashed websight just fine. I've deleted the app and good riddance. BTW the chevron adds all over the environment page of the websight are amusing.
Since when are ads free? You can't blame Ford because the other 'auto' makers didn't buy ad space!
Why do I need an app for my iPhone? If I want to read popsci, i'll just use Safari to navigate to here.
Well, the fact that the app isn't that great makes me feel slightly better that they don't offer one for android.
Still, what's with the exclusivity, PopSci?
