7 years ago

BBC Focus Magazine’s interactive edition for the iPad has been named as one of the best apps of the year by Apple.

The Focus Magazine app features in the iTunes Rewind 2011 list – Apple’s annual retrospective of the best and top-selling apps from the past 12 months ­– and was selected as one of the top five Newsstand applications.  

Andrew Davies, Publisher of Focus, commented:

“I’m delighted that the Focus app has been recognised in this way. It has been fantastically well received by readers and the industry alike, and this is further testament to the huge popularity of this app which gives readers all the content they love from the printed magazine with a plethora of exclusive extras.”

Focus launched its monthly magazine app for the iPad in November 2010, with a range of enhanced features and interactive elements bringing the award-winning science and technology magazine to life. It was handpicked by the Sunday Times as one of the 500 best apps in the world in February of this year, and was named as one of the top two publication apps in the world by the media research service iMonitor in April.
