National Geographic Magazine for iPad is now offering subscriptions. It’s the latest big mainstream title to offer an iPad edition subscription model – and the pricing looks quite reasonable.
Here are the subscription levels and details:
Annual subscription: $19.99 (12 issues)
Monthly subscription: $1.99/month (1 issue)
Single issues: $4.99/issue
Back issues of National Geographic magazine are available starting with our February 2011 issue.
The big miss here of course is the lack of any sort of discount or combo offer for National Geographic print subscribers (which a number of other blue-chip titles have offered). That’s not a good move, and hopefully the publishers will address this soon.
Here’s an App Store link for the iPad edition of National Geographic Magazine; it’s a free app with In-App purchase offers as detailed above.
