➟ iPad magazines encounter resistance to newsstand pricing

Pop Sci users called the app “amazing,” but one self-professed “techie” wished it was “a little less flashy and a little more intuitive.” Some commented on [the] Men’s Health app that they saw potential in the format, but complained about the iPad version’s low resolution and scarcity of interactive ads.

Apart from that amazing nugget of information (people actually want ads that take up more space on their device?), this article shows PopSci and Time willing to take two different stands on pricing. PopSci would rather find ways to convince readers of their app’s $5 value, while Time stands by their price for now, and says lower subscription pricing may be coming.
