The Outreach Division of the Department of Public Information announced the début of the mobile edition of the UN Chronicle, available now for iPhone and iPad.
Just in time for Rio+20, the free app includes the special double issue on the objectives and visions of this landmark conference, including essays on bringing star power to earth, sustainable energy for all, and the need for a positive negotiating vision.
The premier periodical of the UN since 1946, the UN Chronicle is a quarterly magazine covering the current affairs of the United Nations from contemporary and historical perspectives.
The mobile edition includes the latest issue for free, with subsequent issues available for $3.99 and back issues for $2.99, or an optional annual subscription for $7.99, all at a significant reduction from the print price. For staff, a temporary promotional code will be distributed with each new issue to allow for a free download. Additional platforms and languages are planned for release in the near future.
