I do not own an iPhone, but it doesn’t take a genius to surmise that this might make an awful lot of people happy:

Here’s the text:

About The New Yorker for iPhone
A weekly magazine with a signature mix of reporting on national and international politics and culture, humor and cartoons, fiction and poetry, and cultural reviews and criticism.

The New Yorker for iPhone features a selection of stories from each week’s issue as well as original material from newyorker.com and one-touch access to our blogs and podcasts.

More to come. I’m sure Emily (who does own an iPhone) is raring to give it a test-drive.

Update: If you want to get a taste for how it will work, look at this.

Will people be able to see the cartoons too?

Keeping in mind that this is not a New Yorker app for iPhone but merely a bit of CSS and JavaScript to give it an iPhone-like native behaviour in Safari.

Joe is right, but Apple doesn’t help things by calling this sort of thing a “Web App”:

Nope, not an “app”… but it’s a step in the right direction.

I am very, very, very happy about this.
