Condé Nast is following up the iPad edition of The New Yorker with an iOS app of its "Goings On Around Town" section. Goings On [iTunes] is a weekly listing of New York's art exhibits, concerts, and the like, connected to an interactive map.
Peter Kafka has details on other features in the app:
Like audio recordings from New Yorker authors that will work as walking tours: Food writer Calvin Trillin will lead listeners through his favorite eateries and stores; architecture critic Paul Goldberger navigates the city’s amazing elevated High Line park.
The app is free, but ad-supported.
