The digital edition of Game Informer is how many subscribers enjoy our content, but since it launched, you've needed to access it through a tablet or computer. One of the most common requests we've received has been to make our issues available on smartphones. Today, we are proud to announce that we have done just that.
The mobile Game Informer app is available now on Google Play and the iOS App Store. The app is a new way to enjoy our digital issues at no additional cost if you already have a digital subscription. This isn't a PDF of our print magazine or a smaller version of our PC/tablet editions; the issues are rebuilt from the ground up to work on most smartphones. This custom-designed, mobile-friendly version was created to be easy to enjoy on the go. In order to use the app and access the issues, you need to have an internet connection and either an iPhone 5 or later or a phone running Android 4 or newer.
As a part of our final preparations for getting this app ready – an open beta, if you will – you can read our latest issue featuring South Park: The Fractured But Whole without needing a subscription. If you have any problems with this free issue, let us know so that we can fix it for our next issue, which is launching very soon! Going forward, new issues will launch on the mobile app on the same day as the PC and tablet editions.
The app is free to download, though to access new issues, you need a current digital subscription to Game Informer. To start a new subscription, head here. To convert an existing print subscription to digital, head here.
