The UK based digital publishing support company, YUDU, today introduced a new lower cost way for publishers to launch their magazine apps into Apple's Newsstand. Called Easi-App, YUDU says that a publisher launching a 72-page magazine would expect to pay about £350 per edition.
Any app using the new pricing model would be purely a replica edition, of course, as YUDU says on its website that adding in photo galleries, multimedia or any cross-platform capabilities would require an upgrade.
The good news is that there is no revenue share requirement with Easi-App, so publishers get to keep whatever sales they generate for themselves.
