With the printed magazine now a thing of the past, Jet’s new magazine app launches today. It will be weekly, with new content publishing each Friday. The app will showcase 3D images, video clips, audio, archival content and weekly news. All subscribers will have a 30-day free subscription.
The app’s first cover girl is Keke Palmer, last night’s backstage and social media hostess at the BET Awards and the new host of Just Keke, a talk show aimed at the millennial generation. Just Keke premieres today at 5pm ET.
In addition to Keke, this debut issue will also offer up Jet Beauty, a beauty package that offers enhanced views and interaction with a beauty model, a preview viewing through July 6 of the debut episode of “RoomieLoverFriends” from Black&Sexy TV, and celebrity updates.
“In the new digital magazine app, readers will still find their favorite JET staples such as the JET Beauty, Playlist and the Love & Marriage section. However, these features will be offered with digital enhancements and interactivity. Through the digital magazine app, content can come alive in the form of video and/or audio content, and readers can click through pages and immediately react/respond to what they just saw,” Cheryl Mayberry, Johnson Publishing’s COO told us via email.
You can download the app on the Jet website.
