Is Next Issue The Netflix of Magazines?

If you like magazines but don’t like the hefty price tag, Next Issue has you covered. Next Issue is a new subscription based app for Android and iOS that allows you to read unlimited magazines for just $9.99 per month. Next offers tons of different magazines from Wired to Money so there is definitely something for everyone. If you decide to subscribe to the $15 plan you’ll have access not only to Next’s library of monthly magazines, but to their weekly publications as well. Free 30-day trials are available for both plans.

Currently Next Issue offers 39 monthly publications and 5 weekly publications. And while I think this service sounds really nice on paper, I will not be subscribing myself. This is because of the pricing and the lack of tech magazines. Once Next Issue launches Macworld and Mac Life on their service, I’ll definitely reconsider this choice.

Another disappointing thing about Next Issue is the fact that you have to select the magazines you would like to read on Next Issue’s website before you can actually read them on your iPad. This is disappointing because Next Issue’s website isn’t the greatest on an iPad.

Now that you’ve heard my opinion, will you be subscribing to Next Issue? Let us know by leaving a comment on this post.
