Magzter magazine newsstand service cuts all-you-can-read fee by 20%

One of the players in the "all you can read" digital newsstand world is Magzter which, since January 2015 has made access to downloads of more than 3,000 magazine titles from 212 countries available for a single, monthly fee of $9.99. 

Now, the New York-based service is cutting its monthly fee for Magzter Gold by 20% to $7.99 a month. (The company continues to offer Magzter Gold Lite which allows reading of any five magazines for a monthly price of $4.99.) 

(It may be coincidental -- or not -- that the price cut is happening just as Next Issue Media and Next Issue Canada have rebranded as Texture.)

In addition to the all-you-can-read option, Magzter offers readers a portal to subscribe to individual magazines. It offers publishers a revenue share model and apps for most mobile platforms, both for iPad/IPhone and for Android. However its magazines are all PDF-based, so limited in their interactivity. It does offer a family sharing plan whereby subscribers can share the sub for free with any four designated family members.
