New Playboy App Lets You Really Read The Magazine “For The Articles”


For the younger generation, the easy access of nekkid pictures online has kind of made the old joke that you read Playboy “for the articles” kind of obsolete. The new generation is increasingly asking “What the heck is Playboy?” But now that the magazine has decided to launch an application for iOS, and that they have to follow the no nudity guidelines, it’s kind of relevant once again. Somewhat.

Scott Flanders, Playboy Enterprises’ chief executive said in a statement:

As the on-the-go extension of the Playboy brand, our new app brings the best of Playboy with original, thought-provoking and enticing bite-sized content that captures our design-driven and discernible style. We’ve rebuilt Playboy for iPhone from the ground up to attract the new generation of Gen Y fans who enjoy the indulgences of the artisanal good life and modern culture.

So… how good are the articles? Is it worth paying $2 for an application to a nudie mag… with no nudie pics?
