Project Magazine for iPad now free
It’s one thing for me to say that Richard Branson’s cutting edge digital magazine is worth your money. It’s quite another for American Express, the credit card and travel services company, to come on the scene and sponsor it — not just take advertising, but pay for an entire issue.
On Tuesday, Project Magazine (iTunes, free) was listed at the top our Top 10 iPad magazines. Now, Project has received perhaps the ultimate capitalist endorsement — American Express has sponsored Issue Four, which is available for free via in-app download.
Launched at $2.99 in December, and recently available for $0.99 an issue, Branson’s über chic, iPad-only Project has been hailed as the best digital magazine, attracting A-list writers, interview subjects (Jeff Bridges, Stephen Colbert) and advertisers.
