Spotify For Magazines Comes To The US
Paris-based start up, LeKiosk provides a portal to access magazine titles and increase publishing subscriptions through IPad downloads
Paris-based startup, LeKiosk, has taken the concept of a physical newsstand and transferred it online. Offering a variety of publishers across genres, ‘a Spotify of the magazine world’ if you will, they have already been touted as the top Apple app for 2011. “The world’s first 3-D newsstand” is designed to offer users the chance to peruse content in a visual and simplified manner, eliminating ownership of physical versions yet still offering the chance to save the content. The UK version of the app actually provides a version of a British-style newsstand with a virtual way to scroll through available titles in a simulated version of the real life experience.
