Remember in the “old days” when you would get an older brother (or crazy Uncle Bill) to buy you a Playboy, and then you and your young friends would hide somewhere private and turn each page with such reverence that one would think you were holding the Holy Grail!? After you were done you would NEVER throw one away, but start a special library under your bed or in the deepest depths of your closet…you all know what I am talking about. Well, those days are long gone and now even Playboy has gone digital for your Android device.
Playboy has finally graced the Google Play Store with an Android version of their App – long enjoyed by the iOS crowd – really, on those small displays; you have got to be kidding me! I have only one thing to say men (and some women) – keep your pants on…literally. Playboy for Android exposes you to a lot of “exclusive content” and “the very best from the latest issue of Playboy magazine” – as long as you are looking for a good article to read. This “exclusive content” is better defined as “NON-NUDE pictures of Playmates, stunning models, and gorgeous amateurs.”
Each month there are special galleries: Playmate Redux – Me in My Place – Miss Social – God Given Gorgeous – and a special theme shoot with as many as ten Playmates. The ‘magazine’ is divided by sections or featured articles, such as The Good Life that offers the modern man advice on what to drive, drink, eat, wear, and where to go. You will be treated to the iconic Playboy Interview, 20 Questions, as well as short fiction from some of the best writers. The Vault has a picture of old Hugh himself, and is where you will store you bookmarked articles as well as purchase back issue content for $1.99 each. The App brings you into the twenty-first century as well with real-time coverage of breaking news about sex, politics and modern culture.
So is it worth subscribing to the Playboy for Android? It really depends on what you are looking for – if you expect to see totally nude girls, then look elsewhere. However, if you really do want to read the articles…and even though we joke about them, they are good…in a more acceptable manner – after all, you would feel a lot more comfortable sitting on a bus skimming through Playboy on your smartphone than holding up a magazine…at least I hope that you would. Pricing is not bad at $1.99 a month or $11.99 for a year at a time. Please let us know on our Google+ Page if the Playboy for Android App is something that you have been waiting for, interested in trying, or not interested in the least…as always, we would love to hear from you.
