Meet “On Air,” Our iOS Magazine

Introducing On Air App

For the last couple of months, our writers, editors, and developers have been laboring on a secret project. Our small team has been working on a big idea. Today I have the honor to share what we’ve been doing: The Airspace is launching a digital magazine for smartphones and tablets called On Air. For $2.99 a month (less than a cup of coffee), subscribers receive access to exclusive essays and articles from our writers. “Culture, Technology, and Scholarship” from around the world will be delivered right to the palm of your hand.

Subscribe Online or Download the App

We wanted our stories to be accessible to everybody so we made the app free to download. In addition to articles and stories exclusive to On Air (available with a subscription), the app features issues containing the best articles from the website along with collections from our archives. These issues are available without the purchase of a subscription. Between On Air exclusives and our free content, the On Air app features over 120 minutes of reading each month. There’s no reason not to download On Air.

On Air is also available as a web application that can be viewed by any web browser in the world. It’s optimized to work flawlessly on Android and other smartphone browsers. So if you don’t have an iPhone or iPad, you can still have an incredible On Air experience.

We’ve already published three issues and they’re just waiting for you to read them. Download the App right now.

    For ages, the shopping mall was as essential to the architecture of suburbia as Levittowns and freeways. But in an era of online shopping, these epicenters of brick and mortar yesteryear are quietly being abandoned across the country. While the U.S. currently has around 1,500, the number may soon shrink, and rapidly, leading to abandoned […]
