Next Issue Updates App, Adds 31 Titles


Tuesday, September 4, 2012


The Next Issue consortium of major magazine publishers is hoping to add even more value to its all-you-can-read digital edition model. The company has updated its iOS app to Version. 3.0.0. This update is in preparation for an expanded magazine catalog that will be available for customers over the next few days. While performance enhancement and bug fixes are being made, the core new feature will be many more magazines. According to the company, the new additions will bring the available titles to 72 on Sept. 6. The newcomers are below.

Next Issue finally released its tablet-ready app in spring of this year on Android tablets first and then in the last month to iOS. The app aggregates digital editions of scores of magazines for a single all-you-can-read prince of $9.99 a month for access to most titles and $14.99 a month for access to additional premium titles.

To date reviews of the app and its business model on iTunes has been good, with five and four star ratings double that of two and one star ratings. It is not ranking highly on the download charts, however. It appears as #91 this week in the free downloads section of iTunes (although it requires a paid subscription).
