Lutheran Witness on iOS

Yesterday, Dr. Bruce Kintz, President and CEO of Concordia Publishing House, sent me a text message to come and meet him. He said bring your iPad. Go to the App Store and search for Lutheran Witness.

In the App Store, the Lutheran Witness app appears and is a free download.

After installation, the Lutheran Witness App appears in the Newsstand.

When the app starts, a person can see the issues he has subscribed to.

Once am issue is selected, the cover of the magazine with a small tool bar offering other views, page book marking, and help.

A person can click on an article in the table of contents and immediately jump to the article, or a person can see a thumbnail of individual pages and navigate via the thumbnails.

As would be expected, a user can zoom in on text using the iOS, pinch and zoom, feature.

The Lutheran Witness App has a help screen explaining the features.

Rotating he iPad horizontally presents a spread view (2 pages).

The Lutheran Witness App from CPH is a great addition to CPH's electronic resources. I encourage you to go to the App Store and download it for iOS device (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and try it out with the free September 2012 issue of the Lutheran Witness. You can download the app from here.

Visit the CPH website to find out more information about the Lutheran Witness or to order an electronic subscription.
