PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Issuu, the world’s fastest growing digital publishing, sharing, and discovery platform serving over 80 million users and 15 million publications, has released a new Android app available exclusively on Google Play.

“Today for the first time Issuu readers can carry 15 million magazines on their favorite Android device and discover content from hundreds of thousands of global publishers,” said Joe Hyrkin, CEO of Issuu. “The new app was designed from the pixels up to offer the world’s best mobile reading experience. And, with the massive depth and breadth of content on Issuu there is something for the enthusiast in everyone.”
Issuu is relied upon by hundreds of thousands of publishers, including major news weeklies like Huffington magazine and retail brands - from XO Group Inc.’s The Nest and The Bump., to VICE, NASCAR, V Magazine, and Armani - to deliver a world of content including long form magazines, luxury catalogues, and stylish lookbooks that cover everything from fashion and parenting to gluten-free cooking. Made for sharing, the app’s social features let readers explore, connect and collect content with other passionate people from around the world that share the same interests.
“We are excited to partner with ISSUU to extend the reach of Huffington magazine to allow an even wider audience to engage with the best of The Huffington Post,” said Arianna Huffington, editor-in-chief Huffington Post Media Group.
Magazines are no longer confined to the coffee table or casual page flips. Diving through the pages of Nordic Man or CLIENT Magazine, a simply chic New Yorker turns into a transatlantic tastemaker. Die-hard record collectors dig deep in the crates of Loud And Quiet’s archive of sight and sounds, while an endless wave of pictorials from the world’s most remote surf spots washes up in the pages of Surfing Magazine. It’s publications like these that chronicle the world’s creative spirit.
"As an independent publisher with regular titles, Issuu is invaluable to us, not just for the first class interface on all platforms, but it connects us to a huge global community and offers targeted distribution. It's the future of digital publishing,” said Ian Cole, Editor-in-Chief
"Our organization is all about the bold and beautiful. When you’re selling handmade crafts to Hollywood celebrities, and members of the press, presentation is crucial. With Issuu, the richness of our products is cataloged with stunning professionalism. By connecting with their audience, our members have grown to include a global entertainment industry to their customer base,” said Valerie Guerrero, Founder of The Artisan Group®.
