This app is article-based and uses content created in InDesign. They made a choice to use a classic kiosk interface, which is logical for a customer magazine. This illustrates how a publisher can use the advantages of an article-based app but still have a traditional approach towards introducing its content.
The layout is clean, articles are lightly enriched and the enrichments are really adding value to the content without disturbing the reader or being too complex. They are using a handy navigation bar and have a clever approach to long articles where they use a page by page approach. Certain pages of an article fit the screen and other pages are long pages. This is actually dividing an article in sections in an intuitive way.
