PrivateerPress, makers of the miniature game Warmachine and Hordes forges ahead into the new era with digital publishing through a new app called Privateer Press Digital.
From their press release:
BELLEVUE, WA, January 8, 2013 – Privateer Press announced “Privateer Press Digital,” a new reader app allowing users to purchase and read digital versions of No Quarter magazine, WARMACHINE and HORDES rulebooks, Iron Kingdoms roleplaying game books and material, and other content for Privateer games. LeewayHertz, a multinational software developer whose portfolio includes apps for major brands such as ESPN, NASCAR and the U.S. Army, is creating the app. Privateer Press Digital will be available in the first quarter of 2013 for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.
Privateer Press Digital will launch with an extensive catalog of offerings, including all of the Mk II WARMACHINE and HORDES books, Iron Kingdoms Full Metal Fantasy Roleplaying Game: Core Rules, No Quarter Presents: Urban Adventure, and every issue of No Quarter released since the debut of WARMACHINE Mk II. The app will also feature free digital copies of rules for many of Privateer’s board and card games, WARMACHINE and HORDES errata and tournament documents, and special bonus content for the Iron Kingdoms roleplaying game.
Taking advantage of the digital format, Privateer Press Digital books will be kept up to date with the books’ most current errata and revisions.
“The Privateer Press Digital app offers players some incredible advantages,” said William Shick, Director of Business for Privateer Press. “From being able to carry stacks of books with you in one device to always knowing you have the most up-to-date rules and instant content delivery directly to your app, it’s easier than ever to read and reference books for your favorite Privateer Press games.”

I look forward to this app as it means I can have my RPGs, rulebooks, and more at my fingertips. I hope that it goes better than their previous release, War Room, by Tinkerhouse Studios.
