Next Issue Media, a digital venture from big publishing houses, is now available on the iPad. The app lets users subscribe to up to 39 magazines for a flat, monthly fee. The subscription fee breakdown, via paidContent:
- Unlimited Basic: $9.99 per month, gives readers access to all monthly and biweekly magazines
- Unlimited Premium: $14.99 per month, adds weekly titles, such as Sports Illustrated and The New Yorker
- Single magazine subscriptions ranging from $1.99 to $5.99 per month
- Single issues ranging from $2.49 to $5.99
As time goes by, Next Issue will add more titles, but for now, whether people subscribe to this service is questionable. If someone reads a lot of magazines — and they’re included in the 39 — and they don’t mind not getting the print versions, sure, this will be a good deal. Otherwise, not so much.
The full list of magazines available and a review of the Android version of the Next Issue app is after the jump.
