PC Gamer at

Previously we mentioned that both PC Gamer UK and PC Gamer US have hit iOS devices. Now, for a limited time, one free issue PC Gamer UK is yours to download and read on any Apple i-device of your choosing!

PC Gamer UK issue 231 is now available as free downloads via Apple's new Newsstand service. To grab your free digital edition, simply search for PC Gamer on the App store, or access it through Newsstand. You can buy the latest issue for £2.99, or subscribe. The new iOS edition means means you'll be able to sensually stroke your way through your free issue using Apple's touchy-feely interface. Oh yes.

Be sure to download your free issue soon while the offer lasts, and let us know what you think.


PC Gamer magazine is now an iOS app. Get it right now

Hey! You! Stop typing angrily. We're aware that iPhones and iPads are Apple products but there's a good reason to mention iOS so prominently in the headline. We've injected some PC Gamer into said Apple products. We've PC Gamered them up!

Newsstand editions of both the UK and US magazines are available to download from the App store right now. Even though Newstand - iOS5's bespoke magazine-reading software - isn't available to download yet.

Basically, we're one step ahead of Apple. Once Newsstand gets officially released in the next few hours, the free PC Gamer App will disappear from your homescreen and reappear inside the Newsstand app. It's all very neat and satisfying.

The Newsstand edition will work on your iPhone and iPad, even though you only have to pay for each issue once. Not too shabby. You can get the UK edition worldwide but the US version is only available to download from the US and Canada. That's the law's fault, not ours.

You can read Apple's own words about Newsstand here. They reckon it's "Big news for your news." What's your take?
