One of my favorite categories of iPad app is magazines and newspapers. Except that’s not an actual App Store category; because there isn’t one for these titles as yet. So currently a lot of notable titles in this are scattered across a number of categories. Just a few examples:
— Wired magazine’s iPad edition is in the News category
— Esquire for iPad is in Lifestyle
— Black Enterprise for iPad is under the Business category
— And Sports Illustrated is under Sports
As someone who really enjoys a number of newspaper and magazine titles for the iPad, I’d far rather see these be given their own category in the App Store. It would make it easier to discover interesting new titles I think. I don’t mind if it’s called something old-school library sounding, like Periodicals, or just plain Newspapers & Magazines – it just needs its own section.
What do you think? Does this group of apps deserve its own category?
