The app is compatible with Android, iOS, Windows 8 and Amazon devices, and will be available for free download after which a subscription fee of US$32.99 per year will be charged.
Speaking on the official launch, Chief Editor of Forbes Africa magazine Chris Bishop said: “People have been asking about introducing an app for a while now. We are very pleased that it is finally here, we know we have a good product and this opens it up to a whole new audience which we believe is waiting Forbes Africa.”
Forbes Africa’s print edition was first released in October 2011, and since then has been a source of information on Africa’s business personalities and their wealth.
With its headquarters in New York, the magazine’s digital edition on Forbes.com is said to reach more than 27 million unique visitors each month, the site having been launched back in 1996.
