    Thanks for the info. I just did a search on the app store and there is an iPad version.

    I know you can have subscriptions on the Kindle - do they work on the iPad?

    cool, i didn't realize they were going to get the iPad version out this quick. I'll be down loading tonight.. There are several free subscriptions you can use to check out the service. I love it... i think you will too.

    From the iTunes store, search for "Magazine" and look in the section "iPad Apps". I wasn't able to find a separate category for them either.

    You are right, I just checked out the free samples and this is definitely something I am going to use. The few prices I have checked out seem reasonable to me too. Thanks again :).

    Do some research before buying. I've read some reviews that there are a few mags that are glorified PDFs with video ads inserted. The ones I'm interested in are priced almost the same as the newsstand so may need to wait a bit.

    I tried to install zinio for the ipad, having issues with installation with this App. I have an account with them and it works fine on my mac & pc. Zinio is supposed to be ipad ready...meaning no adobe flash required.

    Zinio loaded fine on both my iPad and iPod. You have to register as a user before you can download magazines. Don't worry, they don't ask for your credit card to register, only when you want to purchase. I've been getting free magazines lately, not samples but the whole issue. I don't know if this is a glitch or if they are teasers.

    I think it would have been better to add the magazine subscriptions to the ibooks store instead of the app store

    I noticed over the weekend that several of my designer and photography mags from the UK (that cost $15 a pop over here in the states) have apps on the iPad where you can get them for $4.99 per single issue or $4.50 an issue if you subscribe for 6 months. The mags look perfectly fine in their iPad apps with no added advertising. The interface is a tad slow and buggy on them but they were released before even having their hands on an iPad so I'm sure they'll be updated to fix those problems soon. So now I can get 4 issues for just $2 more than one issue + tax at B&N! Granted they don't come with the additional CDs but 9 times out of 10 the CDs just ended up in a stack in one of my desk drawers anyways.

    Many publishers don't want to give Apple the 30% cut off the price. I don't blame 'em! If they do it in their own app they can keep the prices low for the consumer and have greater control over their own content. The individual magazine apps don't bother me too much. Like for my Advanced Photoshop Magazine app. I know when I click on the app that it is gonna launch a bookshelf of JUST those magazines... I don't have to go scrolling through other magazines and books to find that one issue I'm looking for. I kinda like it being it's own separate app. And with folders coming up in OS4.0... I'll be able to have a "magazines" folder where I can keep all my magazine app icons. I can even group it down further if I want and have a folder for just my designer mags... a folder for my news mags... etc... I like the idea of that control!

    The April 12th edition of Time Magazine has articles on the iPad and Steve Jobs. In a related article "To Our Readers - Ushering In a New Era" it says that Time is working on an iPad version of Time Magazine. Also a page 9 advertisment talks about the new "Time Moble App" but it doesn't mention any thing about the iPad version, so it may not be out yet. Recommend you go to app.time.com for the latest info.
