How to read WDYTYA? Mag­a­zine us­ing our new iOS app

We’ve been hard at work re­vamp­ing the iOS ver­sion of Who Do You Think You Are? Mag­a­zine. Ev­ery is­sue from Au­gust 2018 on­wards has been for­mat­ted so that it’s eas­ier to browse and read. Older is­sues re­main for­mat­ted as they ap­peared in the print edi­tion, with the ex­cep­tion of the De­cem­ber 2017 is­sue, which has also been re­for­mat­ted and re­leased as a free bonus is­sue.

Each is­sue pro­vides a com­plete con­tents list split into our usual cat­e­gories – News, Fea­tures, Reader Sto­ries, Reg­u­lars (Letters, Be­hind the Head­lines, Best Web­sites etc), Q&A and The Guide – plus our edi­tor Sarah’s wel­come mes­sage, which can be read with­out pur­chas­ing an is­sue or a sub­scrip­tion. Sim­ply tap an ar­ti­cle in the list to read it.

Each ar­ti­cle is pre­sented in a clear, sin­gle-col­umn lay­out op­ti­mised for read­ing in ei­ther land­scape or por­trait mode, and you can ad­just the text size to suit. You can also ‘book­mark’ ar­ti­cles so they’re eas­ier to ac­cess – a great way to keep those ar­ti­cles you find par­tic­u­larly use­ful within reach.

You’ll need the new ver­sion of the iOS app to ac­cess these fea­tures (an An­droid ver­sion is in de­vel­op­ment). Read on to dis­cover how to in­stall and en­joy the app.

2 New Users If you’re try­ing the app for the first time, tap ‘Get started’, en­ter your email if you wish and then run through the quick tour that de­scribes how the app works. You’ll find your­self on the main screen, which is split into four sec­tions.

3 Browse Cur­rent Is­sue The first tab pro­vides you with ac­cess to the lat­est is­sue’s con­tents – be­low the cover and op­tions to pur­chase or sub­scribe are de­scrip­tions of all the ar­ti­cles. Tap one to read a lim­ited pre­view, or the en­tire ar­ti­cle if it’s the edi­tor’s Wel­come.
