The Next Web has released an iPad magazine called, simply, TNW Magazine. Featuring a mix of exclusive content and articles from the past month, individual monthly issues are $2, and yearly subscriptions are $10. Fortunately, as far as I can tell, this one isn’t made with Adobe’s garbage iPad magazine tools. If I’m right, thank you, TNW.
I absolutely love this idea, and I hope more websites hop on board. The Macworld Daily Reader is another good example, though they don’t require any kind of subscription (yet?). In Macworld’s case, the app isn’t a weekly or monthly download, it’s a live refresh of editor-picked and hot-topic articles. I think it’s a real mistake that Engadget isn’t charging for its Distro iPad magazine.
Following and sifting through a river of news for the nuggets that interest me is getting harder. But I’m happy to pay a small subscription for the cream of the crop in a great interactive format. More of this, please.
