Quarterly Essay has developed a new app for Android and iPhone users, to improve your reading experience online – across computer, mobile and tablet devices.
Using the latest technology, Quarterly Essay is upgrading from a traditional app that you download from an app store to a web app that can be installed directly from our website to your device home screen.
This new technology takes the best of web and mobile applications and combines them into one. Think of it as a normal website, but you can save it to the home screen of your device, where it looks and feels like an app.

As part of the new app, you can save an edition for later when you might be out of range or in aeroplane mode. As always, you can also find the option to download an Ebook for your preferred device.
