Design Edge magazine launches paid iPad and iPhone editions

Design Edge magazine has launched an iPad and iPhone verison of its bimonthly print publication, effective with its May/June 2011 issue (current). According to a story in Masthead, Design Edge's sister (online) title, the launch is timed for the May/June cover story about "Design and the move to mobile".
The tablet edition was produced through Canadian magazine distributor Disticor, which has partnered with U.K.-based company MagazineCloner to offer digital publishing solutions for iPad and iPhone.
The app is downloadable for 99 cents. The first issue is free and $2.99 thereafter.
"We're betting that iPad-equipped designers will spend the equivalent of one latte to get the extra rich media content in the tablet edition," says publisher Doug Bennet. "We'll know in a few months whether that's true or not."
