Publishers Offer Package Deal of 27 Magazines for Tablet Viewing

  • Magazine publishers — Condé Nast, Hearst, Meredith, News Corporation and Time Inc. — have created a package deal of 27 magazines for your tablet that costs $10 a month.
  • The package includes popular publications such as Better Homes and Gardens, Condé Nast Traveler, Esquire, Fortune, Glamour, People, Real Simple, TIME, Vanity Fair, Coastal Living, Cooking Light and Southern Living.
  • For $5 more a month, or $180 a year in total, you can also get Entertainment Weekly, People, Sports Illustrated and The New Yorker. The number of magazines are expected to double or triple by year end.
  • The package app is available now only on Android 7- and 10-inch tablets that run 3.0 or 4.0 versions of Android. An iPad app is being submitted to Apple for review in a few weeks. Rather than to download and save all magazines, you can select up to 12 magazines to save.
  • Interestingly, the package is not cheap if you consider you could subscribe individually to the few magazines you really want for less. Moreover, the app does not include a global search feature, something you would expect to find, and the UI can vary by magazine which can be confusing. Still, it’s nice to have all the magazines you want in one place.
