Next Issue Media Announces New Digital Magazine Experience: Texture
Oct 1 15
Next Issue Media unveiled Texture, a completely new way for readers to experience the world's best magazines. Reimagined for how people consume content today, Texture combines everything readers know and love about the print magazine experience and layers onto it the power of digital—giving people a curated reading experience, available anytime, anywhere. Texture is the only premium content subscription service that provides unlimited access to 160 of the world's most loved magazines for one low monthly price. Digital functionality gives readers an unmatched ability to explore current issues as well as 15,000 back issues, allowing them to discover inspiring and entertaining content from an archive of over 500,000 stories. Through new features like 'Curated Collections', Texture's editorial team assembles content by theme, surfacing quality stories from multiple publications, and introducing readers to content they might not normally discover. 'My Collections' offers readers a way to gather and cultivate their own favorites for reading instantly or when it's most convenient. New Texture features and benefits include: Collections: Whether it's revisiting the impact of Hurricane Katrina on the 10th anniversary, diving into Texture franchises like Strong Women Wednesdays, or serving up the best fall pumpkin recipes across every food magazine, Texture's thoughtfully curated Collections delivers content to readers in a way that anticipates their needs and reflects their curiosity; New & Noteworthy: This Texture channel keeps readers in the know – whether the topic is the notorious Hollywood bad boy, latest political renegade or the hottest Fall fashion trends – by surfacing stories that are making news, and topics that are trending in social media; Search & Top Stories: Search allows readers to seek more information across the entire vast archive of magazines. From gluten-free cooking and electric cars, to golf techniques and presidential candidates, Texture pulls content from the best magazines in the world so readers can get insight and perspective instantly from trusted sources. Top Stories uncovers what's being read by subscribers, inspiring the discovery of great reads across the whole catalog or within specific categories; My Collections: After finding the perfect gift idea from Real Simple, or stumbling across Rolling Stone's most recent enthralling cover story, readers can save them to read later or share with friends; First Access: Each month, readers can dive into some of the hottest features before they even hit newsstands to an exclusive agreement between Texture and publishers, serving up a handful of the most highly anticipated stories only for subscribers. The freshly expanded editorial team, led by publishing veteran Maggie Murphy, adds an editorial point of view to the experience – a quality unseen in other purely algorithmic services. Texture subscriptions start at $9.99/month and are available on iOS, Android and Windows 8 devices, for download through the App Store, Google Play and Windows Store.
