List of publications and periodicals devoted to the Apple II

The Apple II is an 8-bit home computer. It is one of the first highly successful mass-produced microcomputer products. Introduced in 1977, it was the first consumer product sold by Apple Computer and the first model in the Apple II series. Its success spurred a thriving magazine industry aimed at Apple II owners which published type-in programs, programming tutorials, reviews, and other articles.

User group newsletters

Most Apple user groups published newsletters; some of these gained fame outside their local area. The best known of these was the Call-A.P.P.L.E. (published by the Apple Puget Sound Program Library Exchange, A.P.P.L.E., in Seattle), the Washington Apple Pi Journal (published by Washington Apple Pi in Washington, DC). The Washington Apple Pi is still in operation and still publishing (though the focus is now on the Macintosh); A.P.P.L.E. ceased publication of Call-A.P.P.L.E. in 1990, printing the Co-Op Spirit for 3 years and restarting publication of Call-A.P.P.L.E. as an E-Zine in 2002.
