The latest issue of Swipe Magazine is now available to download. Issue 6 is available for free and includes coverage of Ridiculous Fishing, Danmaku Unlimited 2 and Super Stickman Golf 2. Additionally, you will find coverage on Year Walk with a walkthrough of the game and an interview with the developer. Also, you’ll get rundown of the best iOS music-making apps and find out what the newest must-have iPad accessories are.
Steel Media has worn many hats in the iOS world. They are an iOS ad publisher, publish the website pocketgamer.co.uk, and AppSpy video reviews. They also run The Free App Alliance, the iPhone Alliance and the iPhone and iPad Quality Indexes – meta-review sites dedicated to iOS apps. Who better then, to put out an all iOS magazine than this group? And, they have done just that with Swipe, an HTML 5 built, interactive magazine that will help you decide which apps and accessories you want or even need.
The first issue hit the App Store earlier this week and the launch issue covers some killer iPhone and iPad gear, a top-ten list of best RPGs and it even has a world-exclusive interview with Rovio covering their next game Amazing Alex.
The magazine gets it content from members of the iPhone Alliance community (which includes 148Apps Network sites), which is comprised of the best and most highly vetted global iOS review sites. This gives the magazine breadth and diversity of opinion not found elsewhere. The app really focuses on interactivity, and while it is only available on iPad right now, Steel Media is at work on an iPhone build that will use the smaller screen real estate to maximum advantage.
Swipe is completely free, no subscription or IAPs, so if you grab a copy, be sure to let us know what you think in the comments.
