We are following TRVL publishing since the beginning and it is extraordinary how the guys behind the magazine have been consistent about their publishing model and serious about content.
TRVL is a free magazine about travel, with each issue becoming a photography rich monography focusing on a location. Issues are completely free for users as well as the App itself, exception made for the special issue about Afghanistan by photographer Ton Koene which is priced at 1.99$. They are now offering a monthly subscription for 0.99$ which is basically a workaround to enable Newsstand compatibility. The feature is indeed available to publishers to sell subscription for a price. In any case TRVL editors will donate the revenue coming from subscriptions, keeping up the free magazine model.
