The digital edition of New In Chess magazine

  1. I am a print subscriber. How do I access the digital edition? We have three subscription offers: print, digital or print + digital. If you have chosen print, you won’t get access to the digital edition. If you would like to add the digital edition to your print subscription, please send us an email at: nic@newinchess.com
  2. Is there a difference between the print and the digital magazine? Yes and no. There is no difference in the content. The digital edition has all the stories of the print magazine. But the digital edition has a very nice bonus: you can replay all the games on a built-in interactive gameviewer. You won’t need you chessboard anymore to enjoy all the annotations by top grandmasters as Magnus Carlsen, Fabiano Caruana, Wesley So and Anish Giri.
  3. On what devices can I read the digital edition of New In chess magazine? You can read New In Chess digital magazine in an app. We have apps available for mobile devices with iOS or Android. Those are: iPad, iPhone, Android tablets, Android phones. We also have an app for desktop or notebook computers with Windows 10, version 1803. You can find the app in the app store on your device, respectively iTunes, Google Play Store or the Windows App Store. Unfortunately, the app is NOT available for Kindle, Kindle Fire or Apple notebooks and desktops.
  4. What does the app cost? The New In Chess magazine app is for free. The magazine issues are available as downloads in the library of the app. We offer you a complete free issue (2016#8) which you can download to find out how it works.
  5. How do I subscribe to the digital edition? You can subscribe at our website.

  7. Can you e-mail me the digital edition? No. The magazine is only available as an app. We like the functionality of the app and the interactive gameviewer. A PDF would make us vulnerable to piracy.
  8. Why isn’t digital included in the price of the print magazine? Our aim is to charge a fair price for all our products. We have invested heavily in the digital edition – and we have to spend extra production time to publish this digital edition. Therefore the price for print + digital is higher than for either print or digital. Some magazines have only one (all inclusive) subscription offer, other magazines (such as The Economist) have the same business model as we have. 
  9. How do I sign in in the app? Once you have your username and password, you will have to find the sign-in menu on your device.
