The big headline in the Apple news cycle today was its decision to purchase the magazine subscription service Texture. It’s no surprise that Apple is looking to bolster its news curation backend, which as Eddy Cue noted at SXSW today, has been the subject of some ridicule. So what all does Texture offer? Dubbed the ‘Netflix of Magazines’, this service gives subscribers access to a wide range of magazines that when combined would cost much more than the $10 per month fee charged by Texture.
Those interested in Apple’s latest venture will want to reach for a free 7-day trial to this service. New users will be able to enjoy the likes of Sports Illustrated, Rolling Stone, GQ and others without committing right away. More details below.
