AARP has a big announcement today! It is AARP’s first foray into mobile content with the debut of FOUR new digital apps. The new AARP app for iPhone and iPod touch lets AARP members:
• carry a digital version of their membership card
• allows them easier access to member benefits
• access to member activities
• and member programs!
AARP is also introducing three separate apps for AARP The Magazine, AARP Bulletin and AARP VIVA that will be available for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users.
The AARP App
The AARP App for iPhone and iPod Touch serves as the hub for users to connect to AARP. The app allows users to keep up with the latest news relevant to the 50+ community; share their favorite content from AARP.org via Facebook, Twitter or email; watch AARP video clips; and keep on top of the latest benefits and services available to AARP members.
AARP Publication Apps
Earlier this year, AARP debuted its web-based Digital Newsstand (http://newsstand.aarp.org) where digital versions of the organization’s publications–AARP The Magazine, AARP Bulletin and AARP VIVA–are available in their entirety to AARP members, free of charge.
These three new apps now bring these digital publications to iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch users.
The AARP Apps are available for free at www.itunes.com/appstore. For additional information or instructions on how to access the mobile apps, visit www.aarp.org/mobile.
