The New Yorker on the iPad

Not only are Hearst, Time Inc, and Bonnier (three major magazine publishers) riding the Apple wave; Conde Nast is now jumping onto the bandwagon as well. There were previous concerns over Apple's demand for a 30% cut of all subscription revenues, but it seems that negotiations between the companies have worked.

As of this morning, The New Yorker is available in the iTunes store at $5.99 per month or $59.99 per year on the iPad. Current

print subscribers can also access the iPad edition for free. iPad readers will be getting some extra features as well, "bonus cartoons from our archives; a slide show tracing the evolution of a millisecond in a Pixar film; the title story of Margaret Drabble’s book of short fiction; poets reading from their work; portfolios of photographs from Afghanistan and Pakistan, and of the big Alexander McQueen show at the Metropolitan Museum."

Other popular titles from Conde Nast like Vanity Fair, GQ, Wired, Glamour, Golf Digest, Allure, and Self will be made available for the iPad soon, on similar pricing terms.

On a side note, you will be able to subscribe to the iPad versions of Hearst's Esquire, Popular Mechanics and O, The Oprah Magazine this coming June.
