Newsweek Launches iPhone App

Magazine apps are not dead.

screen322x572While some might be down on apps, Newsweek has taken the plunge. Its new app offers readers access to all of the magazine’s content.

Newsweek is hoping to entice new subscribers by making the first issue free and allowing non-subscribers to purchase single issues or monthly and yearly packages. Newsweek print subscribers, of course, have free access to the app.

Single issues of the iPhone app are available for $4.99, a one-month subscription for $3.99, and a one-year subscription for $39.99. The iPhone edition arrives each Thursday, one day before the print issue hits newsstands.
