-- VIVmag Leverages New App for iPad as its Brand’s Relaunch in Full, Digital Glory –
NEW YORK (May 17, 2010) – VIVmag
, the first all-digital women’s lifestyle magazine, today announced its May/June 2010 fourth-annual Pets issue (VIVmag.com/pets
), celebrating its recent availability on the free Zinio App for iPad (Zinio.com/ipad
). Not surprisingly, the Mind News/Tech feature (page 24) advising the “The Best Gadgets for Mom” for Mother’s Day recommends the Apple iPad as one of the top five parent-pleasing devices, especially now that VIVmag
is available on it.
“At this exciting time when other publishers finally are dipping their toes into the digital-publishing pool, VIVmag
again emerges at the forefront of this reading revolution,” said Doug Carlson, CEO, VIVmag

has paved the way for innovative technology. The marriage of Apple’s high fidelity and fast-responding iPad device with VIVmag
’s luxury and interactive content is a match made in heaven.”
The May/June 2010 issue of VIVmag
includes the following pet-pampering and celeb-celebrating features, many of which have been optimized for the iPad:
AWARENESS: Hollywood’s Pet Causes
Seven celebrities -- Glenn Close, Lisa Edelstein, Carrie Ann Inaba, Carol Leifer, Stacy London, Megan Mullally and Gabrielle Union -- eschew trophy pets to save abandoned animals from the streets and shelters, efforts that more than pay them back in the unconditional love their cats and dogs bring to their lives.
STYLE: Colin Cowie’s Rules of Petiquette
Proper care and training of animal companions make all the difference according to the international arbiter of style -- to pet-owners, to them and to those around them.
AWARENESS: Your Pet’s Travel Advisory
Air travel can be dangerous -- even lethal -- for animals, so arrange a safe, stress-free trip (or stay-cation) for both pets and pet-lovers.
BEAUTY: Red-Carpet Ready & Fresh Take
Watch top fashion and celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow’s video demonstrating how to get Vera Farmiga’s stunning evening look.
STYLE: Runway to Real Way
