Once (a Year) Is Not Enough! For 221 years, as surely as the Sun rises in the east, maple leaves turn color in autumn, and drinking a glass of water while lying across a chair on your stomach cures hiccups, The Old Farmer’s Almanac has been published in September—just as it will continue to be.
However, for fortunate users—like you!—of iPads and iOS phones, this steadfast American icon is now also available monthly in this e-magazine format!
Each edition of Almanac Extra! contains feature articles on subjects that have defined The Old Farmer’s Almanac as a “calendar of the heavens” for centuries—topics such as astronomy, weather, gardening, nature and the outdoors, farming, food, anniversaries, and, of course, the calendar itself. After all, it’s the holidays and other significant events that make the world go ’round. You’ll often find audio and video multimedia content within this Almanac Monthly, making it far more interactive and fun than plain printed pages.
Here are highlights from the December 2015 edition:
The Full Cold Moon • Kwanzaa history and traditions • an Echo 1 anniversary • December wedding tips and folklore
• LIVING NATURALLY
Kitchen Uses for Winter Ice and Snow
An Armchair Adventure—with the flowers of winter
“It Was So Cold That . . .”—when The Big Chill hits Canada, you don’t want to be there
Warning! It’s Fruitcake Season!—with recipes
Why is the Midwest Square?
Grins and groans from the Almanac archives
Weather Update • U.S. and Canadian forecasts • Sky Map • Best Days to do things • Gardening by the Moon’s Sign • and much more in the December EXTRA!

-Dynamic loading of pages prior to full download.
Waste of $9.99
I am on the latest IOS and cannot get a single magazine to load. I see them but after tapping it goes to blank pages. I let the October issue load but started to read it and it went blank. Deleted the app and reinstalled and restarted twice. No luck. We were very disappointed as we thought the yearly electronic version would be more up to date then the once a year printing. Perhaps some bug fixes should be released to go with the current IOS otherwise this is the same as burning a ten dollar bill. And much more frustrating.
Great auxiliary to Old Farmer's Almanac
Just downloaded the November issue and read it. Very nice layout :) and its readable on my iPhone 6! Can't wait for December!
