Default Let The Buyer Compare: App Store vs. One Pass vs. Kindle Store

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/11/02/17/inside_subscription_content_apple_ipad_vs_google_one_pass_vs_amazon_kindle.html&page=3' target='_blank'>http://www.appleinsider.com/article...dle.html&page=3</a><br /><br /></div><p>"<em>Apple's iOS App Store isn't the only game in town for subscribed digital content. Here's a look at how the plans to court publishers' subscription content by Apple, Amazon's Kindle and Google's One Pass compare."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1298091939.usr17748.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>A nice comparison of current content subscription services, with the bottom line here being about subscriber data (as potentially applicable to advertisers). Right now, Amazon has a huge lead in subscription partners, and since the Kindle app works on many platforms, it will probably remain in the lead - for now. Let the best models prevail!</p>

Wonder why they didn't look at Zinio. It's been a round a while, and has tons of offerings. You can download the app for multiple platforms, including the iPad. I expect it will be hit by the new Apple in-app subscription rules, but it works well.

I wouldn't trust anything written by that particular author. He's got a history of, shall we say, bending the truth to fit his agenda.
