DAN’s Alert Diver magazine has once again taken the industry-leading publication to a new level; the must-read quarterly is now available in a digital version for the iPad.
“Just as we are fully committed to ever-improving the quality of our print product,” said Stephen Frink, publisher of Alert Diver, “we also realize there is a global audience for Alert Diver, and reaching them is important. Alert Diver readers travel extensively, and the magazine’s core information on research, education and medicine may help if a problem occurs away from home. We want to be there for our members, and it’s easier to take an archive of Alert Diver on a tablet than to tote print copies in a backpack.”
Released with the Fall 2011 issue, the digital version features all of the great content contained in the print pages along with bonus content. Additional special and expanded features are expected to be added to issues throughout 2012.
The digital Alert Diver can be viewed on either the iPad or the iPhone. The application is free to download, and the inaugural issue is available at no cost to anyone who wants to view it. Beginning with the Winter 2012 issue, DAN Members can continue to access Alert Diver for the iPad at no cost, as the digital subscription is automatically included with DAN Membership. Nonmembers or those who live outside the DAN America territory will be able to purchase issues individually.
The digital Alert Diver is available only on the iPad for now, but development is already under way to expand its availability to Android tablets as early as Winter 2012.
“The multimedia aspect of the iPad is so exciting to us,” Frink said. “Now we can celebrate the beauty beneath the sea with additional videos and slide shows. Just as the print version of Alert Diver has evolved and improved, we are proud to bring our members valuable new content via our digital editions.”
