We have been hard at work rolling out new additions and improvements to the Next Issue app as we work toward a major upgrade scheduled for the end of the year.

Here are some of the latest improvements users can enjoy today:

Direct downloading from NextIssue.com

You can now download the Next Issue application straight from our Website. Just go to www.nextissue.com from your tablet browser to start the download. The app has been tested on the family of Samsung Galaxy Tabs as well as the Motorola Xoom. The app should also work on any other Android tablet running Honeycomb. Users can also download the app from Verizon and Samsung app stores.

Available titles

The complete list of fully customized digital titles now includes: Better Homes and Gardens, Fitness, Fortune, Parents, People, Sports Illustrated, Time, The New Yorker, Esquire and Popular Mechanics.

Free 30-day trial

You can try each magazine subscription free for 30 days. Within the Next Issue application just select “Subscribe Now” next to the title they would like to try. Readers get one free trial per title. Existing print subscribers qualify for a free or discounted digital subscription, depending on the magazine title.

A better experience

Based on customer feedback, a number of backend fixes have been made to improve the Next issue app’s overall performance speed and user experience.

Thank you for your continued interest in Next Issue. We will keep you posted as we continue to add new titles, devices and features.
