The Numismatist, the American Numismatic Association’s monthly magazine, is now available in the Android Market. There is no charge for the app.
The magazine is a colorful, high-quality, educational publication for collectors of coins, tokens, medals, paper money and more. It was first published in 1888. ANA members receive the monthly print publication by mail, or they can read it online at www.money.org (login required).
The Android app allows users to access the same content as found in the magazine, but with the added convenience of being able to call it up anyplace they can connect to the Internet. The app includes back issues of the magazine as well as the most recent issue.
The app is available in the Android Market by searching for “The Numismatist” or at this link. To log in, members will need to enter the e-mail address they have on file with the ANA as the username. The password is that user’s individual membership number.
The Numismatist is also available in Apple’s App Store for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices. The log-in instructions for the Apple app are the same as for the Android app. Since its launch in April, 1,600 users have downloaded the iPhone app, and another 1,500 have downloaded the iPad app.
Members may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-514-2646 for assistance with either app.
