Download the Exact Change app for iPad/iPhone from the iTunes store:

The Exact Change app is monthly e-zine. The app is a free download, and includes the first issue free (if you poke around you’ll actually find three free issues in there, the additional two are easter eggs we snuck in from the 1980s). Additional issues are available by subscription for $2.99 a month, or $29.99 a year. Individual issues, and back issues, are $4.99.

The app roams freely between text, image, sound, and film. Selections are short – our goal is to use this format to reimagine footnotes, prefaces, wall texts, flap copy, annotations, dedications, inner sleeves, errata slips, slipcases, obi’s, handbills, broadsides, clippings, marginalia, postcards, invitations, shopping lists, ticket stubs, pressed flowers, love letters, and anything else you might find stashed inside a book, gatefold LP, or video box.
