This is an update of the story that appeared last week on the release of five new tablet editions by Emmis Communications for its city/regional magazines. Today the company, as predicted, released a first tablet edition for Orange Coast.
Monthly subscriptions are available for $1.99, annual subscriptions are $14.99. Individual issues are available at $4.99. And like the other Emmis app editions, print subscribers will have to make a choice between print and digital because they will have to pay again if they want access to the issues inside the app.
They should do themselves a favor and stick to the print editions – they are easier to read than these replicas.
Also like the other Emmis apps, a free issue (September) is available to preview, while the October issue requires a purchase of some kind.
