Apple’s Newsstand for iOS5 was launched in the UK on October 2011, and a number of mainstream consumer magazine publishers have released digital editions of their magazines into this mobile marketplace, part of Apple’s App Store.
Future has been a pioneer in this early migration period – of the top 100 highest-grossing Newsstand titles in the UK, there are over 20 Future magazine apps at the time of writing. Significantly, Future has seen an impressive 8.2 million downloads of free preview issues globally since Newsstand launched, underlining the idea that mobile devices are the key growth area for publishers.
Future’s UK no.1 magazine app for technology fans, T3: iPad Edition, created using the innovative Woodwing platform; Tap! for iPad, developed with Future’s in-house Folio software and the beautiful Guitarist Deluxe, alongside Good Food, GQ, National Geographic and Empire have all performed well since launch.
