The Loop magazine launches for Newsstand

Jim Dalrymple has launched The Loop magazine for iOS. It’s similar to Marco Arment’s The Magazine but differs in a few ways.

The Loop magazine articles aren’t pitched but, rather, authors are invited to contribute. Additionally, articles are exclusive to The Loop magazine whereas with The Magazine, authors can republish them after a certain amount of time.

Issue 1 has some great articles and if you’re a fan of The Loop then it’s well worth the $1.99 monthly subscription.

I’ve tried to use Newsstand in the past, having subscriptions with magazines such as Wired, but just didn’t enjoy the experience. I think the key to Newsstand is definitely apps such as these, focusing just on the content with a minimal amount of imagery.
