The original Wired iPad application came in at $4.99 and they sold more than 90,000 versions of the application. For a first look at a breath taking application, $4.99 isn’t all that expensive. But, moving forward, could Wired see sales start taking a little bit of a hit because consumers have already tried the breath-taking application once?
The novelty could slowly wear off, and we’ll only know in short order. Wired has decided to lower the price of the iPad magazine edition to $3.99 per month. I’m still not sure that I’d be willing to pay that much for a digital magazine, at least not yet. That being said, I’m not a huge fan of Wired, so that could be clouding my judgement a little.
At least it looks like Wired was either listening to consumer’s concerns about the price being a little too steep for an app that would have to be purchased monthly, or they’re a little worried about app downloads. We’re not sure which it is, but after spending a lot of time with the application, I’ve yet to go back and read a lot of the articles. I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that I’m not alone.
