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