"British magazines are awful (The Spectator excepted)" - New York Observer

The Spectator on iPad is a simple and elegant way to enjoy the oldest and best-written magazine in the English language. The Spectator's mission is to entertain, inform, delight and infuriate our readers. We have the nation's best columnists, as varied as Charles Moore, Matthew Parris, Rod Liddle, Toby Young, Taki and James Delingpole. All spiced with the nation's funniest cartoons. Our brand new iPad app fuses these into one, together with our View from 22 podcast where our writers discuss the magazine and current affairs.

Issues of The Spectator can be purchased for just £2.99, 15% cheaper than purchasing in print. Alternatively, never miss an issue by choosing one of our auto-renew subscriptions:

-£7.99 for a month's subscription
-£79.99 for an annual subscription

Auto-renew subscription notes: Payment will be charged to your iTunes account at confirmation of purchase. Your subscription will automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period, at the same rate as your chosen subscription. You can manage your subscriptions via your iTunes account and disable auto-renew through your Account Settings after purchase. No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during active subscription period. The Spectator reserves the right to alter pricing at any point.
