New iPad app brings Paths of Progress to life
Download the app from the iTunes store
Dana-Farber has launched an interactive version of Paths of Progress magazine in a free, downloadable iPad application, now available from the iTunes App Store. The magazine's first iPad edition features the Fall-Winter 2011 print issue and is enhanced by interactive features such as animations, enhanced page views, and Web links.
"Paths of Progress is intended to bring Dana-Farber's research and care alive for readers, and this iPad edition pushes that goal forward," says Steve Singer, Dana-Farber's senior vice president of Communications.
"It gives us a new platform and marketplace to highlight the Institute's excellent work, using tools and features that can't easily be presented in other media."
Published twice a year, Paths of Progress is also available free in print at locations throughout the Institute and online in PDF form on Dana-Farber's website. The magazine is the first of two Dana-Farber publications slated to become iPad-enabled this year. An iPad edition of Turning Point magazine, which highlights the work of the Susan F. Smith Center for Women's Cancers, is due for publication later this year.
"People are doing more and more on tablet computers and cell phones, and it is our expectation to significantly expand our mobile and digital publishing efforts in the future," Singer said.
