Le Monde diplomatique is the place you go when you want to know what’s really happening. This is a major international paper that is truly independent, that sees the world in fresh ways and focuses on places no other publications reach. We offer a clear, considered view of the conflicting interests and complexities of a modern global world. Please note: this is the English-language edition. The French edition is available as a separate app. The iPad/iPhone edition brings you selected pages from the latest issue as soon as it is published. Within the application you can upgrade to full access, which brings you every page of the issue and a searchable archive of over sixty back issues. Issues are not sold individually - for the duration of your subscription you have access to every issue in this archive. During your subscription you can sync back issues to your device. These will remain in place if your subscription expires, unless your device removes them (for example when running low on disk space). Re-downloading issues requires a current subscription. • Swipe or tap the page edges to flip to next/previous page. • Use the animated thumbnail view to flick through the pages. • Pinch or double-tap pages to zoom. • Switch between single or double-page view. • Search the current issue or the archive. • Tap any page links to web sites, email addresses, phone numbers or maps. • Tap contents-page links to jump to a particular article. • Sync the latest issue to your device for offline reading (requires wi-fi). • Sync additional back issues by tapping the stars beside their names (requires wi-fi). • Network connection required otherwise. We recommend first running the app within a wi-fi area so it can sync the latest issue to your device - after that you can use it anywhere. Subscribers will receive new issues automatically via Newsstand. Subscriptions are available within the app at the following prices: £3.99 per month £40.99 per year In addition, please note the following standard features of auto-renewable iTunes subscriptions: • Your payment will be charged to your iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase. • Subscriptions will renew automatically unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. • Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. • You can manage your subscriptions and turn off auto-renewal by going to your Account Settings in iTunes after purchase. • No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during active subscription period.

    I love reading my diplo on the iPad, however in the recent January '13 edition the second page in illegible. The bug has caused the entire page to blur!
  • Al Jazeera is better ... And free!

    By Serafina33
    For those of you that have no idea how hard is to get money, in a legal way, just look at the title. The money is supposed to be in advertaising.
  • A Classic

    Excellent opinion paper. App needs ability to share the articles and also save them through Instapaper.
  • Horrible format

    By Raminak
    You really need to spend some money to prepare the magazine for the digital age. This is just a PDF of the magazine. Look at the New Yorker, The Economist, or WSJ (amongst others) to see how it should be done. It is a pity that such great content is presented in such awful format.
  • Insulting

    This ap which is purportedly free is useless without a paid subscription. It happens that I do get the paper version and I have great regard for it. But this. C'est horible. Mon dieu.
  • Great publication

    By magyarbill
    First let me address the complaints that while the app is free most of the content is not. I knew that when I downloaded the app - it certainly says so. Why people always give a one star rating because, god forbid, content is not free is beyond me. This is not an inexpensive print publication so why does anyone expect it to be free. On to the content: the LMD is one of the premier publications in the world. The articles are in depth and provide intelligent discussion and evaluation of many world issues and the political/economic situation in different countries and regions. Some people may not like it for its political leanings. However, if you are a serious student of world affairs, this is a must read.
  • Bait and switch

    You can't see crap unless you buy the paid edition. Thanks for wasting my time douche bags!
  • Reader is Free; Content Costs

    By Aardvark1917
    You get a few sample articles, but if you want more, you pay a nominal fee for 30-days access AND access to the archive. Yes, if you zoom in too far the text gets blurry. Not a problem for me, but if someone needed large text, it would be better if the text were sharp.
  • Terrible

    By Sfbill
    Blurry and unreadable which certainly wouldn't give me the confidence to make a purchase. And as others have pointed out, it's not free at all.
