JET magazine goes all digital with release of new app


I'm not a big reader of Jet mag other than a few flips here and there at your old schooled barbershop (lol) but let me say.. I appreciate this post. I have enjoyed iMore's expansion into minority things related to tech like Apple's Pride Week, the "diverse" emoji debate and now covering a predominately African-American publication turned application. I'm not saying that I want iMore to break the race barrier or have political propaganda in every post (after all, I come here to read Apple tech news), but it really is a breath of fresh air and for that I thank you.
