Description

MacAddict was a monthly magazine for users of Apple Macintosh personal computers and other Apple, Inc. products including the iPad and iPhone. Published between September 1996 and February 2007, the magazine was known as MacAddict (ISSN 1088-548X). MacAddict is one of two successor magazines to the defunct CD-ROM Today. First published in 1993 by Imagine Publishing (now Future US), CD-ROM Today was targeted at both Windows and Macintosh users, and each issue shipped with a CD-ROM of shareware and demo programs. In August 1996, CD-ROM Today ceased publication, with two magazines taking its place: MacAddict for Macintosh users, and boot (now Maximum PC) for Windows users. As was the case with CD-ROM Today, MacAddict's discs included shareware and demo programs, but also came with other added features, such as staff videos and previews of content inside the magazine's hard copy. The MacAddict website was updated daily with news relevant to Apple products. In February 2007, MacAddict was relaunched as MacLife. The new magazine was physically larger than the old magazine and was focused on the creativity of Mac users, and no longer came with a CD-ROM.
