Tate Etc. always manages to find an original approach to topics you think you knew everything about. Their choice of writers and the elegant design makes it a rewarding read – Thomas Demand, artist
Tate Etc. is now available on the iPad, with added extras such as video content. Purchase a single issue for £3.99 or subscribe for £10.99 per year. Access via iTunes. The iPad version is free to all members.
As this is a new venture there are not any back issues, only issue 26 is currently available. However, we would love to hear your suggestions on what content you would like to see in the next issue, and how we can improve, or what you liked about the tablet version of Tate Etc.
The content of the app will be very similar to the print version of the magazine, so you still have access to all of our content, but the pages have been redesigned to give greater interactivity. For example you will be able to enlarge images to full screen and watch videos.
There is also exclusive content, as well as links to other Tate content at the end of the articles, such as our blogs.
Each issue is 392MB for retina-optimised iPads (from May 2012 onwards) or 180MB for earlier iPad models, so we recommend using a wifi connection on your iPad rather than 3G to download it so that you dont use up all your data allowance. Downloading takes a minute or so, but once the issue is in your library you will be able to access it at any time.
If you need any help using your iPad version of the magazine, instructions can be found by tapping the help icon on the bottom bar of the app (next to My Account).
If your query is not answered please contact email@example.com.

About Tate Etc.
It has taken decades, and the efforts and enthusiasm of many individuals, to make Tate what it is today. Inspired by the galleries but independent of them, Tate Etc. uses Tate collections, events and projects as starting points to explore the visual arts scene on an international scale.
From essays to interviews, from cutting edge studio work to archive highlights, Tate Etc. follows the work creating the most interesting debate, and explores its context, history and meaning. We blend the historic, the modern and the contemporary to show that art does not exist in a vacuum, but is rooted in many traditions.
Tate Etc. is a good smelling treasure trove of wild, mind-blowing texts and pictures. Pipilotti Rist, artist
With Henry Tate’s legacy as a springboard, Tate Etc. has gone on to become the largest art magazine in Europe. It is published three times a year, in January, May and September.
