In iOS 7, the Final Straw for Newsstand

Marko Karppinen:

For years, I’ve argued that choosing Newsstand is the best thing — the right thing — to do when publishing periodical content within the Apple ecosystem. But with the redesigned app, and with automatic content downloads no longer a being a Newsstand exclusive, the balance has finally shifted.

We think publishers should skip Newsstand and publish their iOS apps as regular non-Newsstand apps instead.
