Magzter adds top magazines to Apple Newsstand
New York – Magzter Inc. that owns Magzter – The Global Digital and Mobile Magazine Store and Newsstand today announced that it has started adding its client magazines onto Apple’s latest iOS5 Newsstand.
Magzter just launched iOS5 Newsstand compatible magazine apps for India Today, the largest selling English magazine publication from India and for Galatta Cinema, one of India’s popular movie magazines both of which cater to the 200 million Indians who read English language magazines in India and overseas.
Publishers can just sign up on Magzter’s website at www.magzter.com and with Magzter’s FREE upload option for paid magazines, they can have their magazines sell across platforms.
