With WORLD on the iPad, real matters.

WORLD is a bi-weekly magazine written from a Christian worldview perspective and packed with the real stories behind the headlines, including national and international news; newsmaker profiles and interviews; movie, book, and music reviews; author interviews; political cartoons; commentary on current issues by columnists such as Marvin Olasky, Joel Belz, and Andrée Seu Peterson; and more.

We’ve designed WORLD on the iPad to bring you the rich interactive magazine-reading experience your iPad was engineered to provide, including sharp, reader-friendly typography; intuitive navigation; bright, colorful photography and informative graphics; photo galleries; and video and audio (internet connection required). Plus, WORLD on the iPad arrives days faster than the postal service!

Best news source!


I love WNG podcasts! I can’t wait to listen each day. Such thorough reporting from a Godly, biblical perspective. In this crazy world with so much spin and political bias, this news source is my most trusted!

World class reporting


A Christian news magazine worth every penny! Covering all aspects of our world including foreign affairs, finance, music, arts, and politics. When quoting the information to friends & family, I am frequently asked "how I knew that"... simple- I read World and so should you! You will also sit in on fascinating interviews with men and women who are the best and brightest in their fields: scientists who dare to question global warming effects; legal experts who understand our constitution and the attack on Christian beliefs here and abroad; dissidents who give firsthand testimonies of what is really happening in foreign countries. The articles and opinion editorials are conservative but never rote or superficial. Simply put- read World if you crave truthful, straightforward, interesting and diverse news!

Missing full potential


I don't mean to complain, and I do love World's content and message, but this app needs to be an "Apple Newsstand" app.

I understand the need to make the content as portable as possible for different types of devices. But iPad users expect certain things. They want icons for updates and sharing options. They want magazines on iPads to be with Newsstand, all together, in one spot, auto downloading. I get Wired, the Daily, and Bloomberg Business Week this way. I get World and The Army Times through an older style app, and the quality and experience suffers.

Maybe you receive the paper version and use this app to supplement your World reading. Maybe you're not so picky. But if you pay $50 annually, and will only read it digitally on an iPad, it needs to be better. No?
