Competing with other similar services including those of Next Issue and Readr, Magzter Gold gives customers unlimited access to Magzter’s library of digital magazines across mobile, tablet, and the Web for $9.99 a month.
At launch, Magzter Gold features more than 2,000 titles including Maxim, ESPN The Magazine, and Fast Company in the U.S., and a number of top magazines in more than 40 other countries.
Aside from the $9.99-per-month Magzter Gold, Magzter is offering Magzter Gold Lite for $4.99 a month. At half the price of the premium subscription model, this basic subscription service is similar to Zinio’s Z-Pass in that it gives users unlimited access to any five magazine titles per month — enough for customers who are interested in reading only a handful of magazines.
With its not unreasonably priced unlimited subscription options, Magzter is expected to add more customers to its already 24 million strong user base.
In addition to launching Magzter Gold, Magzter has updated its official iOS app to version 4.0 with a new design featuring: live news, personalization based on interests, enhanced search and social sharing, faster downloading speed, notification management, and full resolution support for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
