Goings On About Town, The New Yorker's App
New York’s cultural life never gets old. That is why the New Yorker magazine published since early 20th century still keeps its edge today serving a biweekly dose of popular culture commentaries and literary reviews for modern-day dandies and coquettes of New York City.
The magazine is prominent for its editorial traditions, one of which is "Goings on About Town". For years, this feature has been offering a listing of cultural and entertainment events in New York. This rubric offers all the listings in an easy-to-use mobile app called Going On, available for both Apple and Android mobile platforms for free. The app is a guide to New York City’s cultural life with searchable listings for theatre, art, films, nightlife, restaurants, classical music, and more. The event listings and recommendations can be saved to phone’s calendar and shared with friends via email and social media.
Additionally, The New Yorker’s writers and artists take users on audio tours, guiding them through their favorite places in the city. The New Yorker’s Going On app blends much of its traditional appearance and feel with techie features, capturing New York City’s ever-changing cultural landscape that somehow stays the same.
