LA Times Magazine App Given the Axe

The November issue of LA, Los Angeles Times Magazine is out Sunday, but it won’t be available for download. The magazine app, launched just this April, has been killed.

We worried this might be a bad omen. The mag lost publisher Shelley Cole during a round of LA Times lay offs in July, and LA Observed forecasts a new round of belt-tightening is on the horizon.

But LAT spokesperson Nancy Sullivan reassures us:

For the near term we have put LA’s app on hiatus as we evaluate and evolve our digital distribution strategy. The Magazine itself is not going anywhere.

Here’s hoping the app comes back. The LA magazine translates to tablet form quite well. And we’re among the many readers who don’t receive the mag with our Sunday paper. Sure, it can be found online, but the app restores the element of portability. Once we’ve downloaded, we can read it anywhere – no wifi required.
