Popular Photograpy+ – the iPad edition of Popular Photography Magazine – now offers a subscription plan via In-App purchase.
There’s only one subscription option, an annual subscription at $14.99 – which is a hefty discount on the single issue price of $2.99, but is a dollar more than the price of a print subscription. Just a quick glance at App Store ratings for the app shows that print readers are not impressed at the iPad edition subscription rate being higher than print, or at the lack of a discount plan for existing print subscribers.
There are still only a handful of publications that are taking advantage of the ability to offer subscriptions in the App Store, so it’s good to see another added to the list – but it seems like Popular Photography may have some work to do in getting their subscription plans right.
Here’s an App Store link for Popular Photography+.
