Set your timers, friends. Today Apple is set to release its new operating system (probably around the traditional 1ET/10PT hour) so your phones will be a buzzing. Once it’s installed, you can also download the longform.org app, which they are releasing today with the new iOS.
Their current app costs $2.99, this one will be free and will include around 1,000 publishers. Users will be able to ‘follow’ publishers and other users, creating the home newsfeed. Capital New York reported that Longform founder Max Linksy sees the app as a move to adapt to new technologies, and making reading as easy and beautiful as possible: “We’re trying to make it so you don’t feel bad everytime you spend ten minutes on your phone.”
Do you ever feel that bad about it?
