ElectricLit is the mobile offshoot of the “pioneering” digital literary magazine ElectricLiterature.com. New and back issues are available, each offering short stories from “big names” like Aimee Bender and Rick Moody. ($5 per issue; iOS and Kindle)

McSweeney’s provides new multimedia content each week from the popular indie publisher, including material from McSweeney’s Quarterly and the book magazine The Believer. ($3 monthly; iOS)

Storyville “keeps it simple: one story each week.” The company’s staff showcases both mainstream and small presses. ($5 for six months on iOS; $1.50 per month for Kindle)

Strange Rain is a unique multimedia app that in one mode unfurls a short story in nonlinear fashion, “with each tap triggering thoughts a man has while standing outside in the rain.” ($2; iOS)
