Last week Apple announced a wave of new developments from its new operating platform…called 3.0. One of them will enable e-commerce.
This opens up the field to all sorts of pocket convenience for services such as subscribing to magazines.
We see this as an interesting opportunity for publishers in a climate where hard copy sales are generally heading south. Any savings from not having to print could be passed on, ads could be interactive, new concepts could be trialed, real time opinions could be garnered etc.
Watch for an avalanche of e-commerce enabled apps tumbling into play this June.
