Adventure Magazine: 1 question survey

My partners and I are about to publish a new magazine on adventure riding exclusively on the Apple Newsstand and would love some feedback on the best name for it.

Take our one question survey here

Yes, we've researched what's already out there, but are open to input from all the smarty-pants here to make it even more kick-ass!

Thanks!

Definitely in the works.

It's simply the software that we're building everything on that makes the iPad so appealing to start with.

Great idea.

"Long Rides" is two words, tho.

Hopefully Klay won't see that.

I'll be looking for your magazine.

Doh!
Hopefully that's not why it got so few votes.

We have a clear winner after the feedback, but I'll keep this up for a bit longer in case anyone else wants to chime in.

We should have it launched in the next month, so I'll post back here when it's live.

Thanks again for the feedback from everyone! Very cool to get it so quickly from people that would actually read it.

I didn't vote cuz I wouldn't read one on my iPhone -- I don't haver a tablet, and don't plan on one, so my input wouldn't be useful . . . . .


Could it be that you are artificially limiting your readership?

In any event, best of luck with the project. More choices are always better!

Bomber, thanks for the feedback and I completely agree that we are limiting things out of the gate. It's simply due to speed and cost at this point. Once we launch, we'll likely expand to other platforms (android, kindle, website, etc) after 3-4 months.

Understood! Break a leg, bud!

Well, it only took a year longer than planned, but we finally got Road+Trail Magazine off the ground!

It's live on iTunes for iPad and iPhone right now at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/road...911156934?mt=8

We also built a companion website for anyone without an i-thingy at http://roadandtrailmag.com/

We're working on the Android version and it should be up by mid-December since it's just a few hoops to jump through to get it reconfigured for Android now that it's working on iTunes.

Thanks for the feedback on the name last year and we hope you dig what we've created!
