Music Tech magazine now available as an app.

Music Tech is the world’s most practical music recording and production magazine. Every issue is packed with hands-on features written by professional producers and engineers, software walkthroughs for all the key packages, Ten Minute Master guides to technologies and techniques, and the very latest product and software news and reviews. One issue of your choice is included with the app purchase.

  1. A quick review.

    After you buy the $2 app, you are allowed to select one “free” download. You can select one of only four issues (#77, 88, 89, or 90). I selected the July 2010 issue, as it had an article I wanted to read. (You can look on their website to see what's in each issue to make that decision).

    After selecting an issue, it downloads via WiFi. The download is quite large at 100 pages of high resolution; it took about 10 minutes to download.

    The app itself is pocketmag, which is a new iThing magazine download/reader app. The app itself is nice, with animated page turning, zoom, rotate, bookmarks, etc. Its basically a nice PDF reader, and the magazine is complete with ads. There is not text search function, however. It looks good and is easy to read on my iPad, but I don't think I would like it on the small iPhone/iPod screen; that would take LOTS of scrolling.

    The main drawback in my opinion is that additional copies are $7.99 (or 13 for $59.99). OK I guess if you want to buy a back issue, don't want the DVD full of goodies, and want to have the issue on your iPad on the road.

    So, I paid $2 for a copy of the magazine I wanted to read anyway. And now I have an account with pocketmag, so if they come up with other magazines in the future, I can buy and download them through the app.
