Founded in 1845, Scientific American is the award-winning authoritative source for the science discoveries and technology innovations that matter. The longest continuously published magazine in the U.S., it is translated into 14 languages, read in more than 30 countries, and reaches a global audience of more than 6 million. In 2004, with brain science rapidly advancing and gaining popular interest, Scientific American launched Scientific American Mind.
Prior to moving to Pugpig, both titles had apps running on Adobe DPS, but Pugpig’s lightweight editorial workflow and ‘create once publish everywhere’ philosophy means the magazines can now create beautiful interactive apps that render across all devices and screen sizes in one simple step.
Mariette DiChristina, Editor in Chief and Senior Vice President at Scientific American says “I’m delighted to offer our readers a faster reading experience without lengthy downloads, as well as making each monthly edition available on iPhone for the first time, letting them enjoy each edition more easily than ever before.”
Jon Marks, CTO and co-founder of Kaldor, the creators of Pugpig says “For myself and many of my team, Scientific American was the iconic magazine when we were growing up. We’re all delighted and very proud to now have our technology powering these apps. A special thank you to Mariette and her team for making the first part of our journey together a most enjoyable one, and we’re really looking forward to continually improving the apps together.”
