Newsstand allows you to find digital newspaper and magazine products in one dedicated place on the App Store, and organize them in one easy-to-organize bookshelf. New purchases go directly to your Newsstand folder. Then, as new issues become available, Newsstand automatically updates them in the background — complete with the latest covers. It’s like having the paper delivered to your front door. Only better.
At launch Future has 55 titles on Newsstand, including internationally renowned brands including Total Film, Classic Rock, Metal Hammer, .net, Edge, Procycling, Digital Camera and Xbox 360: The Official Xbox Magazine.
The hugely successful T3: iPad Edition is also on Newsstand. Future’s flagship consumer technology brand continues to go from strength to strength, engaging with hundreds of thousands of gadget fans every month in print, online and on mobile. T3: iPad Edition continues to be among the most popular UK magazines on the App store. Tap! – Future’s latest premium title built from the ground up exclusively for iPad, is also available on Newsstand.
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.”
Richard Foster, Future Digital Director, adds: “Future was one of the first five media owners in the world to offer subscriptions through the App Store. We were very pleased with the success of this initiative that has seen iPad apps for Future brands, such as T3 and the newly launched Tap!, hit the top of the highest-grossing apps’ chart. We are excited about the global distribution opportunity which Newsstand affords and look forward to bringing Future’s unrivalled quality digital content to a wider market of consumers.”
Mike Goldsmith, Future’s Editor-in-Chief, iPad and Tablet Editions, adds: “Since the launch of T3: iPad Edition back in October 2010, we’ve committed 100% to the platform. The launch of Newsstand only makes that commitment stronger, and its the perfect home for our wealth of trusted, special interest magazines for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. You can expect more Future titles to hit Newsstand over the coming months, from enhanced editions of such premium titles as Guitarist to all-new digital brands curated especially for iPad.”
In June 2011 Future was named Consumer Digital Publisher of the Year at the annual Association of Online Publishers Awards – becoming the first magazine publisher to win the Award. Future also won the Grand Prix Award at the event.
