You can visit our site here: http://www.themagpi.com. This iOS newsstand app is designed to make it even easier for you to read The MagPi on your iOS device. It does require wifi to download copies of each issue, but you can later read them offline. Thanks to ilical apps for creating this app for us. If you have any feedback, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy your read!
WHAT WE MAKE
We produce a magazine with the intent to help and offer advice to users of the Raspberry Pi. This started out as a simple idea on the well known forums, with a few of us getting together and deciding on a loose outline of what we wanted to achieve.
Over time many have joined and left the team, each bringing their own contribution and ideas to the final piece.
If you had asked us six months ago whether we thought the magazine would be half a year down the line, we would not have been sure. We are now able to offer printed copies, competitions, our own branded Raspberry Pi case, and stable mirrors on a website not entirely made in flash.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
We all started out as volunteers - we are certainly not in this for the money. However, there are certain administrative costs that go toward producing a reliable magazine, and printing magazines is certainly not free. We get a small amount of money from every copy sold - and this goes towards funding the entire production team. We also hope to be able to offer more competitions, and better product testing.
YOU CAN HELP
Any donation is very gratefully received. However, you don't have to put money into this to help us along - time is also one of our limiting factors. If you think you can be of any use in the general production, drop us an email.
We had no idea how successful the magazine would be. Give us another six months, and there should be some real progress made. We are forever receiving requests for more formats, and this is definitely something we are looking into. Translations to other languages would be another great step.
We shall see...
Magpi app for ipad
The magazine is brilliant. This review refers to the app on the iPad.
The app collects all the issues to date and displays them as the reader selects. This could be better than hard copy if the contents could be shown so that I could find an article without having to reread all the issues.
More seriously, the app presents the magazine pages as images instead of text. Many readers , like myself, want to copy and paste text programs for running on the Pi and we have to use the internet version which is text based. With these improvements, i would even be happy to part with a small charge for the app.
As it stands, the app is fine for browsing through the past issues, but this can easily be done online anyway.
I really like the magazine! Great for beginners and experts in programming! Just one thing though...... You need more/larger articles ;) 100+ pages would be better not 30 odd ;)
An absolute must for anyone new to the Raspberry Pi . Extremely well laid out with a wealth of information to get you started . A great mag to accompany a great computer !!
