    Glad you’re enjoying the new app, David! As indicated on the iTunes description page and on, ACS members will have to pay per issue for the time-being (aside from the August issues, of course). We are working as fast as we can to enable members access to all of the issues in the app for no charge and expect to have that in place by early 2012. But the subscription mechanism can be a tricky thing to work out, which is why it’s taking a bit longer.

    The good news is that Latest News, CENtral Science posts, and the job postings are free all the time. And we now have a way for people who didn’t have access to the magazine content to read all of it, not just what’s free on the website.

    Thanks, Rachel, and congratulations!!!

    Yes, I saw that Rudy’s post crossed in the ether with mine yesterday (C&EN Editor-in-Chief, Rudy Baum). His specific words were:

    By 2012, we will have a mechanism whereby ACS members can access each issue at no charge. You’ll be able to subscribe to a year’s worth of C&EN on your smartphone in addition to receiving the print or electronic editions as part of your ACS membership.

    I’m really impressed by the magnitude of content you have available daily. Thanks much for the hard work by you, Tchad Blair, and all the other folks behind the scenes. By the way, who else is in that promo video?

    Now, David. That would be unveiling the shroud of mystery. Tchad and I were involved in the development of the app, but the others are *hardcore* C&EN readers, man. (Roll with it.)

    And an update: the Android version is now available in the Market.
