It's not often that Android users get to boast of receiving something before Apple - but they can here. Next Issue has been launched initially on Google's platform.
If you're unsure what that is, it's a kind of Netflix for magazines, taking in the likes of Conde Nast, News Corp, Hearst Corp, Meredith and Time Inc.
If you're thinking "yes, but Apple users have Newsstand", then here's the clincher - you don't just pay per issue, you can get a pass which lets you browse and read unlimited numbers of publications. Sadly, it only works on tablets with resolutions of 1024 x 600 or 1280 x 800.
Costs are $9.99 a month for the basic or $14.99 a month for the premium. The dollar sign has probably given away the fact that it's a US-only gig right now. As are the titles like Esquire, Golf, Vanity Fair and New Yorker.
It's a great concept - and we hope it comes across here soon.
