They’re calling it Netflix for magazines. In the pilot episode of “App Slap,” we review the magazine app Next Issue.
Available for Android tablets, Next Issue offers a number of popular magazine titles including Better Homes and Gardens, Condé Nast Traveler, Esquire, Elle, Fortune, Glamour, Parents, People, Popular Mechanics, Real Simple, Sports Illustrated, TIME, The New Yorker, and Vanity Fair.
Much like their print counterparts, the digital magazines can be packaged into monthly subscriptions or sold individually.
Each issue is enhanced for the tablet experience with videos, Twitter feeds, and other interactive features; and can be saved on the device for offline reading.
