An Exciting Thing: Far Off Places for iOS

These days Far Off HQ feels less like a magazine and more like the kitchen of a 5-star restaurant, complete with white-hatted chefs juggling hot soup and waiters singing loudly to one another in wonderfully French accents. That may be because one of our number is away in Paris, eating delicious crusty bread and being an international journalist. Then again, it may just be because we like to cook.

Either way, we have definitely got a lot of projects on the go right now, with Issue III almost ready for release, submissions rolling in for Issue IV, and new episodes of the Far Off Podcast airing once a fortnight. Plus, we will be holding our very first live reading and storytelling café in Edinburgh next week.

You will be there, right?


Until then, I’m pleased to announce that the magazine, which up until now has only been available online and in a very limited print edition, is now available on iOS as a Newsstand app.

If you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch you can download the free Far Off Places app from the App Store right now and get a free copy of Issue I just as soon as you finish that cup of tea. Plus, if you subscribe from within the app future issues of the magazine will automatically be delivered to your iOS device while you’re off dancing in moonlit puddles or stowing away on creaky pirate ships1.

Go on, have a look. You never know what you might find, and a little written whimsy is a good thing to have on those balmy Caribbean nights. Oh, and if you like the app please leave us a review on iTunes — it will really help us out and brighten our already glowing smiles.

Far Off Places, on iOS, in stupidly high contrast.

1 Magazine delivery onboard pirate ships may vary; wireless reception while sailing the seven seas is notoriously unreliable.
