High Country News HD

By High Country News

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


**UPDATED FOR iOS 7.0 and higher**
Now you can read all the great, independent award-winning content you know and love on the go! Every story from the magazine is available, including features, news and Writers on the Range essays. The content is organized by issue. You can read the latest issue, or pull up any of the last 10 issues. Plus, you can share any story you like with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, email and more.

Current High Country News subscribers can read all the stories for free simply by using their username and password.

App users who are not already HCN subscribers can purchase a subscription directly through the app, simply and easily.

Downloading this app is free to everyone, but it includes the ability to purchase 3 subscription period lengths so that users can read subscriber-only content:

- 1 month auto-renewing for $4.99
- 6 month auto-renewing for $14.99
- 12 month auto-renewing for $24.99

Your subscription payment will be charged to your iTunes account at confirmation of purchase.

These subscriptions automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. You can do this via Account Settings on your device, after purchase.

Your iTunes account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. The cost of the renewal is $4.99 for 1 month, $14.99 for 6 months, and $24.99 for a full year.

iPad customers who purchase an iPad subscription to HCN cannot cancel their current subscription.

Customer Reviews

Wish this was better

I love the HCN, but the app is disappointing. Images don't load or load incorrectly. I bought the digital subscription when I got an iPad hoping that it would be a great way to keep up with a magazine I love. Unfortunately, it's been a bit frustrating. Please fix this HCN!
