S&T now availible on the iPad
Posted 17 April 2012 - 11:06 AM
Paid digital-only and print subscribers who have signed up for digital access through our website (PCD subscriber services), will have access to the iPad edition by using the login information they set-up for their digital access and are currently using to view their desktop version.
Paid, print subscribers who have not yet signed up for digital access, would need to do so first on our site and then they will have access (via their password created) to the iPad edition as well.

Regardless, one platform at a time.

Gene, not really Apple has 55% of the tablet market. You aren't phrasing the comparison properly. Android is an entire platform, while iPad is a specific device.
Regardless, one platform at a time.
Technically true--but a major astronomy magazine such as Sky and Telescope should have issued them for both IPad and Android at the same time, or close to it. The Android market is huge. Your main competition--Astronomy Magazine did just that. If you couldn't offer S&T to both platforms at the same time, you should have stated that the Android App will soon follow. Its not good marketing and public relations to alienate the large market of Android users.

I just downloaded the app and activated the digital part of my subscription.
What app? I cannot find an S/T reader app anywhere... I have to view it through the browser on my IPAD. Is there app that lets you view the magazine natively? Or must you view it in the Safari browser on the IPAD?

Not in a habbit of replying to my own posts, I did find the app within the ITunes app store.

Also in the app, it was not clear where to login. You have to click an issue and you are given the login prompt.
Finally, other than the Kindle Fire, there are no viable Android tablets right now.

Best of all, my hard copy edition came today, just one day later, and I live in Israel. Congratulations. You have hit a home run!!
P.S. Oh...and the icing on the cake is that now it is stored in iBookstore's shelves in perpetuity, just like any other book. I no longer have to run around the house screaming at my wife about where she misplaced the magazine.

It's not an easy path to find but you can download as a pdf. I bring it onto my computer as a pdf and then move to my fire.
I think you click the download button and on the next page you have a pdf option.

After many trials and tribulations, here are the methods to get the digital versions down to your iPad.
There are two options:
1. Using the Nxtbook Nxtstand iPad app.
Instructions for installing the app (from S&T):
a. Go to the App Store and download Nxtbook Nxtstand.
b. When it has loaded…..tap on the Nxtbook icon.
c. When it opens … across the bottom tap on the catalog button.
d. At the top you will find a search bar and enter the magazine title. Or click on the "S" in the alpha list along the right-hand edge of the screen and find Sky & Telescope in the magazines displayed.
e. Tap on the magazine you want. It will pop up "Read", or "Download" option. Tap on "Download".
f. It may ask to authenticate…… tap yes.
g. It may ask for permission to push……. tap yes.
h. Tap on your library button. It is located to the left of your catalog button.
i. You will see your magazine in your library…tap on it….
j. A "Read" / "Update" / "Delete" option appears. Select "Read". If you are not already logged in, it will bring up a sign in screen.
j. Sign in (if necessary) with email address and password.
k. The issue should be viewable.
NOTE: Never log out from Nxtbook/Nxtstand. Otherwise if you try to read issues offline, it will ask to authenticate and since you are offline you will be unable to get access to the issue.
2. Using Safari
a. Log into the digital issue of S&T
b. Select the issue you want to read
c. Click the .PDF icon. It should download the issue.
d. Select what app you want to use to read the issue. If you have iBooks installed, that should be one of the options.
e. The issue should be available to read at any time.
