Magazines on the iPad using Newsstand

What is Newsstand?

Newsstand is a folder that holds your Magazines (Subscription Apps) that you can download from the Newsstand section of the App Store.

Each Publication is a standalone app and manages you subscription for that magazine. (Note: The app is usually “FREE” and usually lets you download a sample of the magazine, however to get an actual magazine or a subscription there is usually a fee.)

When you download one of these apps they automatically move into the Newsstand. These downloaded apps are the only apps allowed in this folder. (You cannot drag apps in or out of this folder.)

To access the Newsstand tap on it’s icon (1) and the Newsstand opens up.

To go to the Store tap on Store (3)
