Physics World launches mobile apps

06 Jun 2011 iopp"> iopp

Physics World, the membership magazine of the Institute of Physics, has today launched a new app to provide IOP members with free access to the magazine from almost any smart phone or tablet.

The new Physics World app has been designed to complement the recently re-launched digital edition of the magazine, and to support the needs of growing membership in the international market.

“IOP is committed to proving a first-class service to its members, wherever they are based.” said John Brindley, director of membership and business at the IOP. “Making Physics World available in these new formats was a natural evolutionary step in terms of both the publishing industry and how members are choosing to view information. It reflects our commitment as an organization to make access to scientific information as easy as possible.”

The app allows members to read the latest issue of Physics World from the day it’s published, access back issues since January 2011, and download issues for reading offline. It also boasts an easy-to-read text option for viewing articles on a smaller screen. More information and links to download the app is available from

The free app can be downloaded from the App Store and Android Market, with access to the magazine content restricted to members only. Find out more about membership options.
