MAD Mag now an iPad app

MAD Magazine cartoonist and NCS President Tom Richmond writes on this blog that MAD Magazine is now an iPad app.

Today DC Entertainment and MAD Magazine announced the planned release of a new MAD Magazine iPad app complete with interactive features and exclusive content. The app is scheduled to be released on April Fool’s Day (Alfred E. Neuman’s birthday, no less), and will be free to download through the iTunes App Store. The MAD app will include a mixture of free and paid content, including a free preview of the magazine.

Seems quite affordable too: Free app; current issues: $4.99; back issues $1.99; $9.99 annual subscription; free subscription if you’re already a print subscriber.
