The New Yorker now available for free to subscribers via iPad app

Last week I posted that Time, Inc had begun making its magazines available for free to subscribers via iPad apps. Now Conde Nast has made The New Yorker available for free to subscribers via its New Yorker iPad app. You can read more on Macworld. In addition, according to AppleInsider, Conde Nast will make all of their magazines available for free by the end of the month, which would include Wired, Golf Digest, Glamour, Vanity Fair, Self, Allure, and GQ. And more good news: Conde Nast will offer annual iPad-only subscriptions at a lower cost than to the print edition. I'm really excited about this trend. I like having my books, magazines, and newspapers on my iPad.
