On the main library page, tap the also subtle download icon in the lower right corner of a magazine stack to bring up an Automatic Download notification. Downloading issues seemed to take much longer in the Next Issue app than with the native magazine apps. To test out my feeling, I downloaded the same issue of The New Yorker both ways.
Via the Newsstand app, I could see that this particular issue was MB. On a 12Mbps download connection, in Next Issue, it took five minutes and 42 seconds from the time I tapped the pin icon until the issue was ready to read. In the Newsstand app, the analogous process took only two minutes and 33 seconds. In other words, it took more than twice as long to download the exact same issue using the Next Issue app.
The company says my experience could be related to some pre-launch testing Next Issue was doing over the weekend while I was working on my story, and says that internal testing has shown comparable download times. And the company emphasized that with Smart Download, you can begin reading an issue in much less time than it takes to download the whole file anyway.
Attempting another complete pinned download from work on Monday, I still found it took longer using the Next Issue app, but the gap was much smaller this time around. Some magazines stack articles vertically, so that you scroll left or right to get to an article, and then up or down to navigate to the pages within it. Some are mostly flat, with only horizontal swiping involved. Within any magazine, tap a page and navigation elements fade in on the top and bottom of the page.
You can navigate via a slider, by scrolling sideways through a list of articles, or by swiping left or right through thumbnails of the pages. In comparing several magazines in Next Issue and using the native iPad apps, I found the experience fairly similar. Some pages in a Cooking Light issue loaded a little faster on the test third-generation iPad running Next Issue than my also third-generation iPad running the Newsstand app.
Scrolling down within a page in that issue was smoother in Next Issue as well. At the same time, the company told me that Next Issue content is current not optimized for the Retina display on the latest iPad the app itself runs on all iPad models. Image-based content and text is rendered at by resolution, so even magazines that have been updated for Retina display in their own apps can look jagged within Next Issue—a pretty big concern for people with third-generation iPads.
The company says to expect Retina support later in alongside increased magazine title offerings. And as the company adds more titles assuming pricing stays the same you might find even more value. So you could sign up and then read what you want on your iPad while your spouse enjoys the same or different magazines on theirs or, you know, on an Android tablet if iPads are in short supply in your household.
Of course, the current lack of Retina display support might be a deal-killer on its own right now. As long as the app is open, it continues to download content in the background. But you can also pay one flat fee for unlimited access to multiple magazines. At least for now—the company says it plans to add more titles, including ones from additional publishers.
Of course, relatively few people are springing for multiple digital magazine subscriptions at all. With the current price points, though, I think that its real audience is people who are already voracious readers of big-name magazines in either dead-tree or digital form, or both. Send to Kindle.
