While the Apple Ipad offers all major motorhead magazines in their "Newsstand", they are not cheap. In fact they cost as much as the paper version, unless you get into the subscription thing. Anyways, life on itunes is not easy when you are broke. Porsche, of all brands, is bringing the smile back on the penny pincher’s face with a free Ipad app worth downloading. It is called Christophorus, and you can download it directly from this link. Don’t ask me why it is called Christophorasarus, I have no clue.
The app is like many magazine apps out there, but while it is free, Porsche has not cheapened out on the merchandise. You will find plenty of interactive content. While the app itself is a little slow to respond from one feature to another, once loaded, the pages slide and flow nicely . It is all about enjoying cool animations and sharp pictures from Porsche’s marketing team.
In the edition 352, I particularly enjoyed the sliding layers showing the evolution of the 911 over time. Or unveiling the cover on the new 991 with my fingertip.
If you are a Porsche fan, and who isn’t, you have to download this one. Did I mention it is free?
