Get Pilar's "Manifesto for Thriving in a Mixed Up World," plus regular infusions of renegade wisdom, FREE.

One App You Really Oughta Have


Somehow, while I wasn't looking, the art team at Experience Life (chiefly, Lydia Anderson and Jane Meronuck) dreamed up this super-cool enhanced digital edition of the magazine for the iPad.

The app-based digital edition has got everything the print edition of the magazine has, plus all sorts of other cool stuff, like bonus content, videos and animations, plus gobs of fun interactivity — stuff you can pull out, swipe over, click on and basically play with to your heart's content.

Experience Life has long been the best, most progressive health and fitness magazine available on the newsstand today, and now it's the best, most progressive health and fitness magazine on the digital newsstand, too. That's my opinion, anyway. But then, I'm a little biased. You better go see for yourself.

The digital edition app (available at the App Store — and easiest to see/grab via the App Store app on your iPad) lets you download just the individual issues you want, or you can subscribe and get each new issue delivered to your device automatically as soon as it's posted.

Here's the thing: When you first download the app, you automatically get the most recent issue for FREE. But because we started by developing a few back issues, the freebie you'll get right now (maybe for the next few days?) is the fabulous May issue.

That's the one with me on the cover, in case you didn't know, so our team stuffed the digital edition of this issue chock-a-block with all kinds of neat extras that I authored or had a hand in making — including a nice profile video, an interactive version of my Manifesto for Thriving in a Mixed Up World, and a bunch of other Revolutionary Act goodies.

Everybody who has seen this app has gone "WOW!" — and that goes double for me. Just blown away by the niftiness, and super impressed by my talented teammates' digital design chops. Anyway, I hope you'll check it out ASAP, and then tell all your friends about it.

Start with your friends who have iPads, though. The other ones will just be sad when they find out they can't get it on their smartphones ... yet.
