It’s a sad fact that now a days we are more in sync with our mobile gadgets and into our social accounts. Unfortunately, I am guilty of that scenario too, However while that is something to work on [more especially if you value the person you are with]. We can’t deny that we do enjoy the portability of technology these days, admit it cmon! Haha. Another fact that is obvious is that the digital age is dominating society on how we communicate with people and simply doing the little things, such as reading a book or the newspaper.
Our country’s situation may be in a bad state, but it is no excuse not to be aware of what is happening in my country. Newspaper is very important for my mom and we have adapted that habit of hers. There is absolutely nothing wrong with old school habits [reading newspapers via print or reading books – which by the way is still the best medium], but with the globally competitive digital world they would have to adapt.
I currently installed the Inquirer Group app, where I can download the current newspaper for the day and magazines such as [ahem] Cocoon Magazine, LOOK Magazine and many more. The app is free by the way and the good news is? Once you install the app, you have 14 free credits to download whatever you like. Here’s a run down of screen shots for your reference.
Here’s how your downloaded magazine looks like [see photo below]
Do note that as soon as you have consumed your free trial, you have to pay for the magazine which will cost the same as the print. For example, Cocoon Magazine costs P160 in all newsstands nationwide, the mobile version will cost the same.
Technology is amazing isn’t it?
Till my next post!
