Texture Is The Future Of Reading Magazines
Does anyone even read magazines anymore? It’s a question that often comes up as the Internet has enabled us to find anything we want in no time at all. But just because this is true doesn’t mean that people are going to give up reading the content they love from their favourite periodicals. The magazines you know and love aren’t going anywhere – it’s the way you read them that’s changing. That’s where Texture comes in.
Getting hardcopies of magazines is great and all but if you’re reading them on the go, they can quickly become just one more bulky thing you have to carry around. At the same time, simply using your smartphone or tablet to read selected articles off of the website doesn’t give you the same feel as perusing an issue. Texture solves both of these concerns by giving you an app that brings all the magazines you want right to your mobile device, in exactly the same format as it would be as a physical copy. For a low monthly fee, you get access to over 150 of the top magazines in a database that is super easy to navigate. And I’m not exaggerating when I say the top magazines. Time, People, GQ, Vanity Fair, Sports Illustrated, Entertainment Weekly, Maclean’s – it’s all here.
If you’re a magazine enthusiast, I’m sure you never wanted to throw out issues when you were done with them, so that you could go back and revisit them later. But this would cause stacks or boxes of back issues to pile up and, really, who has the space for that? Texture’s system archives all the back issues for you, so you can go back and read them anytime you want, without having to keep physical copies around. It basically allows you to have your own personal magazine library, all contained within your mobile device. “Personal” really is the operative word here as you can bookmark favourite articles and tailor your magazine collection precisely to your reading tastes.
But what if you do your magazine reading on the subway, where Internet access is, at best, spotty to non-existent? No problem – just download the issues you aim to read beforehand so that they’re ready to go without having to use any Internet or Wi-Fi at all. Texture also allows you to use up to five separate devices for the same account so there’s no problem switching between a smartphone, tablet, laptop, home computer, or something else entirely.
If you’re still wary after reading all of this, then know that there’s a free 30-day trial for you to get started and test everything out. So if you’re a magazine lover and don’t already subscribe, what are you waiting for?
