Magazine house Future Publishing has confirmed that 55 of its stable of specialist magazines will be available on Apple’s Newsstand, the new home for magazine subscriptions on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
Part of the new iOS 5 software, Newsstand allows readers to find digital newspaper and magazine products in the App Store and organize them in one easy-to-organize bookshelf.
New purchases go directly to the Newsstand folder and new issues automatically download in the background.
Future’s 55 titles on Newsstand, include Total Film, Classic Rock, Metal Hammer, .net, Edge, Procycling, Digital Camera and Xbox 360: The Official Xbox Magazine.
Mark Wood, Future UK CEO, says: “Newsstand offers a superb solution for discovery of our titles on the App Store.
“For Future it means an exciting opportunity to take its specialist magazines to a wider digital audience on a global scale.
“Our position as the number one magazine licensor in the UK is built on the worldwide appeal of our brands and expert content. Newsstand enables us to reach even more communities, wherever they live, with content they love.”
Future say readers can expect more titles to hit Newsstand over the coming months.
