I love magazines. Whether it’s food, fitness, science, fashion, I can’t get enough of the glossy pages. I feel more relaxed when reading a magazine–I’m not as committed as when I read a book, so I can flip through it while watching tv or doing something else. However, I’ve felt guilty about getting magazines the last few years because I can get a lot of the same information online without worrying about clutter or wasting paper.
Enter: Next Issue. For a small monthly fee, you can get TONS of magazines (and their back issues!) downloaded straight to your iPad. I had the pleasure of trying the app out during my SDCC trip (my weakness for magazines usually means I pick one up for a flight), and I love that I can go back and forth between any of the 32 magazines that I currently have in my library. Plus, having the variety all on my iPad means I can flip through magazines I wouldn’t normally pick up on my own, like Brides and GQ, so I can stay on top of trends without spending money for those specific issues. And when I find sweet recipes I want to make later? I can just take a screencap and save it on my iPad. Basically, it’s amazing.
There are currently more than 90 titles available to look through, and you can get started with a 30 day free trial. (The subscription starts at just $9.99 a month after that.) Next time you’re going to go on a trip or have some doctors office visits ahead, download it and give it a try.
Get started at NextIssue.com and let me know what magazine(s) you can’t live without!

Great idea but I am addicted to the international glossy fashion magazine bibles their glossy feeling sweet scented publication pages make me wish that I am cocooned inside their fashion spreads.
