We are very excited to launch the Tactile Times shortcut, which gives you fast access to everything we have to offer across iPhone, iPad, and even Apple Watch! It lets you quickly download issues for later, read the latest updates from us or play a quick round of Hangman, all in one place. The shortcut has a simple main menu, where you select what you would like to do. It also has clear sounds to let you know when it is opened or closed. N.B. This is not an app, it is an iOS Shortcut which behaves like a simple app once installed.
