Maxim stirred up some fears among the early 20-something male demographic when it announced that its iPad app Maxim HD would no longer be updating past the June issue. This led many to assume that Maxim was leaving the iPad as a digital distribution platform. Well fear not, frat boys, Maxim PR rep Nora Garrity told AllThingsD that the company is simply switching to a different publishing framework which is used to translate the magazine into iPad format.
Up through the June 2011 issue, the iPad edition of Maxim was assembled using technology from Bite Sized Candy, a digital publishing house that counts Outside, Epic, and Reader's Digest among their clients. When Maxim relaunches on the iPad this fall, the magazine will use Mag+ as its digital publishing platform. Mag+ has a significantly larger client base than Bite Sized Candy, including such popular magazines as MacWorld Sweden, Popular Photography, Popular Science, and FHM Norway.
No word yet on the exact date Maxim plans to launch again on the iPad, but in the meantime if you are looking for pictures of hot girls I recommend you check out something called the Internet.
