World-renowned bodybuilding magazine Iron Man announced this week that it will now be available as a downloadable magazine app from Apple’s iOS Newsstand.
Iron Man Publishing said that its title will be appearing on the online stand alongside such established magazines as Esquire, Popular Science, Car and Drive and Martha Stewart Living.
The utility of the newsstand lies in the fact that it separates the magazine apps from the close to 150,000 apps that are also available in Apple’s App Store, making it easier for bodybuilders to find and download their magazine of choice.
The magazine’s editor-in-chief Stephen Holman, himself a bodybuilder of more than 35 years, commented: “The App Store, with over 18 billion downloads to date, is a publisher’s dream. With Newsstand, we now have an even better way to reach over
250 million iOS users about our healthy bodybuilding and fitness lifestyle.”
US-based magazine Iron Man has been publishing its information and advice on bodybuilding training, lifestyles and bodybuilding supplements such as whey protein now since 1936, when the competition sport began achieving high levels of popularity across America. It will be celebrating its 75th anniversary in April, and this week is available as a complimentary download on the Apple Newsstand to mark the occasion.
The issue will feature the inspirational story of father-and-son bodybuilding team Kyle and Dale Clark, plus an interview with Iron Man publisher John Balik on bodybuilding’s evolution and interviews with past cover stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger – along with video footage not available in the print edition, plus a pictorial feature on Hardbody Model Search winner Angela Leong, selected by the magazine’s fans on Facebook.
