Kindmags announces support for Apple Newsstand

September 13, 2011 11:57 am

Kindmags has announced that it’s digital publishing tools have already been updated to take advantage of the new features in Apple’s revolutionary iOS5 operating system.

One of the key features to be released by Apple is Newsstand (due for release this autumn) which is a folder that organizes your magazine and newspaper app subscriptions in one place meaning you can access your favorite publications quickly and easily.

The key benefits are:

  • Better discovery – Newsstand provides a new place on the App Store just for newspaper and magazine subscriptions making it easier for new readers to find your publications.
  • Background downloading of issues – as new issues become available, Newsstand automatically updates them in the background — complete with the latest covers. It’s kind of like having the paper delivered to your front door. Only better.
  • In-built notifications – alerts tell your readers when new issues become available.

What’s even better is that by choosing Kindmags there is nothing more you need to do to take advantage of the fantastic opportunities presented by iOS5.

‘Kindmags focus on integrating Newsstand into it’s core application is fundamental to the transformation taking place across digital publishing right now. To allow readers to easily obtain their magazine and newspaper subscriptions in one location and get access to the latest issue as soon as it is published will further accelerate magazine adoption on iPad and tablet devices in general. I’m sure there will be a rise in tablet sales, an uplift in digital magazine downloads which in turn means happier advertisers – a good boost for the industry. Hopefully Newsstand will do for the iPad what iTunes did for the iPod. If anyone can do it it’s Apple’ Rik Sellers, Kindmags

Just join us and your Kindmags app will be set-up so that they are automatically detected by Newsstand.
