    Virgin Launches Project Magazine for iPad


    As widely telegraphed, Richard Branson has today launched Virgin Digital Publishing’s Pad-only magazine, Project. The app is free to download from iTunes, with each issue costing $2.99 to download. For your $2.99/£1.79 you’ll also get frequently updated content rather than a static magazine. Considering the cost of a glossy magazine these days, that’s a pretty good deal! The first issue has an interesting mixture of content, ranging from travel, with a 3D-video tour of Tokyo, a feature about a superchef who serves soil, and an electrified cover feature on Jeff Bridges, star of the forthcoming Tron: Legacy movie.

    Although there are lots of favourable comments about Project in the app store, AppleInsider says that there have been some complaints too, primarily that Project’s touch-based interface is too complicated, especially as it comes with its own list of operating instructions!

    As AppleInsider also reports, iPad magazine publishing is very much a hot-button issue for Apple at the moment, as it’s rumoured to be holding a media event on December 9 with a group of print executives, which many are saying could herald the introduction of a new subscription billing service for newspapers and magazines on the iPad. Also rumoured is the release of iOS 4.3 in December, including recurring application subscriptions.
