Apartmento's App Is Your New Daily Commute Read

Since 2008, Apartamento has been one of the most honest and influential independent magazines, publishing designer profiles and behind-the-scenes looks into the lives (and homes) of creative thinkers. Its app, which quietly launched late last year, has been making those stories available to non-subscribers for free — but with a catch.

At the start of each week, Apartamento refreshes its app with seven randomly selected stories from the magazine’s archives. After seven days, the stories are replaced with new ones, waiting to be read one at a time mid-commute, or all at once on slow weekend mornings.
