We are seeing some positive download trends already from being in the Newsstand  –  Australian Women’s Weekly is currently at #6 in the Top Free Apps list and Gourmet Traveller sitting at #8.   top free app 18th Oct Another Newsstand effect is that the rankings of both these apps have increased to 4+ and 5 stars.
If you would like to know more about Newsstand please don’t hesitate to contact Oomph.  We think it’s a positive move by Apple in support of magazine and newspapers on the iPad, so we’re working with our clients to make sure they have all the information and support to make the transition.  The key differentiator is that your periodical needs to have an auto re-newing subscription (whether free or paid).
