I recently got an iPad Air and absolutely love it! One of the first apps that I downloaded was Next Issue (www.nextissue.ca). It is Canadian but I have no doubt that there is an American version of it too. With a subscription of $14.99 a month (premium membership), you can get all of your favourite magazines on your tablet. The first month is free so that you can try it out and see if you like it.
We’re not just talking about a few obscure magazines here like Cat Lovers Monthly or DIY Mushroom Gardening; no we’re talking big magazines like People, Entertainment Weekly, Cosmo, Glamour, Food Network Mag, Time, GQ, Oprah and so many more. The first two that I named are my favourites and are weekly magazines. There are some months where I would buy each of them two, three and sometimes even four times in a month. The monthly membership fee for full access is going to save me a bundle!
I have a hard time imagining myself giving up holding a book in my hand but I’m willing to update myself for magazines. Some of them even have links that you can hit to see movie previews or other digital extras that people holding the paper magazine don’t get. Another thing that is nice is that you have access to past issues as well.
I download the new issues that I’m interested in when I’m at home with wi-fi and then I can read them anywhere I want regardless of whether I have a wi-fi connection or not. Do note though that you do need wi-fi for any links that you want to check out. Once you’ve read the issue, you should delete it from your tablet to save your device’s memory but can always download it again in future if you want to refer back to an article. You have unlimited access! You can also share a page by email if you want to share an article or a recipe.
