The American Numismatic Association published a press release this week noting the availability of The Numismatist for android SmartPhones.
The Numismatist, the American Numismatic Association's monthly magazine, is now available in the Android Market. There is no charge for the app.
The magazine is a colorful, high-quality, educational publication for collectors of coins, tokens, medals, paper money and more. It was first published in 1888. ANA members receive the monthly print publication by mail, or they can read it online at www.money.org
The Android app allows users to access the same content as found in the magazine, but with the added convenience of being able to call it up anyplace they can connect to the Internet. The app includes back issues of the magazine as well as the most recent issue.
The Numismatist is also available in Apple's App Store for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad
devices. The log-in instructions for the Apple app are the same as for the Android app.
Since its launch in April, 1,600 users have downloaded the iPhone app, and another 1,500
have downloaded the iPad app.
Has anyone tried the app yet (either Android or Apple)? How far back are the "back issues"? If they're back to 1888 that would be REAL news for bibliophiles and researchers, but I'll bet they only go back 10 years or so.
