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.
