The Washington Post just announced a $1.99 app for reading their news content with a years subscription. With newspapers in trouble and the younger generation wanting audio, video, etc. This looks like the future.
I'm looking forward to magazines that would work this way. Imagine a woodworking magazine with plans, good articles and video how-tos.
