Introducing Salon's iPhone app

Download Salon’s iPhone app here

After 17 years online and countless appeals for a mobile app, I’m proud to announce Salon’s iPhone app, our first foray into mobile. For those of you who love to catch up with news while you’re on the go, this is the perfect solution. The app gives you access to all the great content from the site, including coverage of breaking news, politics, entertainment, technology, lifestyle and culture.

It provides easy access to all of Salon’s brilliant writers and their work. Whether it’s the latest from the campaign trail, an investigative post or sharp opinion piece, a slide show of “Famous Last Tweets” or the latest must-see morning clip from “The Daily Show,” Salon is the best place to stay in the conversation and our iPhone app makes it easier than ever before.

Version 1.0 features all the most recent stories from Salon in an easily navigable format with convenient social sharing features, so you can seamlessly share articles via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and email. Plus, Apple’s new Retina Display delivers all of our photos, slide shows, videos and original art in high resolution for a stunning user experience. Check out the slide show below to see it in action.



My main objective since starting at Salon has been to foster collaboration across all our teams – editorial, tech, sales and finance – to build on what Salon does best and lead media innovation. Our iPhone app is the first of many great content-rich products that will emerge from that collaboration.

This is just the beginning of an exciting rollout of new features and ways of connecting with the Salon community – so check back for updates. If you have any suggestions for new features you would like to see, please post them in the comments section below. I look forward to hearing your feedback.
