According to Distimo, an analytics firm, iPad users burn through about $70,000 everyday purchasing newspapers and magazines through Apple’s Newsstand application. The highest grossing subscriptions include the New York Times, The Daily and the New Yorker, which isn’t surprising. Most of that $70,000 comes, not from users downloading tons and tons of different publications, but from in-app subscription purchases.
Personally, I’ve never once used Newsstand. In fact, the only time I really ever even clicked on the application is when I was trying to trick my phone to get it in a folder. I’m actually really surprised that Newsstand is doing so well. There was a lot of hype for the service before it came out, but I haven’t really heard anything about it for quite a while. Most of the time, I forget it even exists.
Obviously there are people that use the digital subscriptions quite frequently. Where do you guys fall into this? Do you use Newsstand every day? Do you never use it? Somewhere in between? Let me know your experience in the comments section below or on twitter.
