The Offline app is a magazine with text and audio content centered around iOS. Because it offers two ways for people to take in the magazine’s content, it’s great for those who love to read or listen to audiobooks.

The magazine releases five new articles complete with audio each month, which means that its content is never stale. The app was designed and developed by people from Apple, The New York Times, Instagram, Audible and Blackberry.

The Offline app is free to download and the founders of the magazine have made the digital subscription available for 99¢ a month. As PSFK notes, supposedly this system is designed to help Offline pay its contributing writes “two to three times more than what most freelance writers earn per contribution,” which also encourages writers to promote their work since wages will be based off of a percentage of the revenue the app generates.
