About Texture Magazine App
The Texture Magazine App, found online at Texture.com, is a company and mobile application that says their goal is to bring “the world’s greatest magazines to life on the digital device of your choice.”
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the company that created Texture Magazine App is Next Issue Media, a joint venture formed by six different leading publishers including Condé Nast, Hearst, Meredith, News Corp., Rogers Communications, and Time Inc.
This unique partnership means that the Texture Magazine App is the only digital app that provides their customers with “an all-access pass to the world’s best magazines.” Customers that sign up for their service will get unlimited access to huge catalog of magazines offered by all these major publishing companies, including back issues of the magazines included.
With such a large catalog of options, they did want to provide their customers with a way to find their favorite magazines quickly and easily. All you have to do is “star” your favorite magazines and Texture will personalize your app to immediately show the content you are most interested in.
In addition, your membership is shareable. A single account can be accessed by up to five different devices, so one account can be used by the whole family.
Currently their website says that they have mobile applications available for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, Android devices, and Amazon Fire tablets, and as mentioned above, each account can be accessed by five different devices.
Customers will have the option to choose between the Basic Plan, which is priced at $9.99 per month, or the Premium Plan, which is priced at $14.99 per month. Both options automatically come with the first 30 days for free before you are enrolled in your paid subscription.
Both plans offer unlimited access to all monthly magazines, including all back issues of available magazines, access from five different devices, and the ability to cancel at any time without commitment. The Premium Plan also includes unlimited access to all weekly magazines as well.
This website is very clear that all subscription fees paid to their website are considered non-refundable. This is not unusual, because this company provides their members with a 30 day free trial as well as a month-to-month subscription contract, so customers are able to cancel their membership at any time without penalty.
Customers who do decide to cancel their service will be able to continue using the service until the end of their current month, and the subscription will be discontinued at that time.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who have questions, concerns, or complaints they would like to direct to their Customer Service team can contact them by email at [email protected] or by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact Help link.
This app does appear to get excellent reviews from both their customers and from technology and journalism blogs and websites alike. Customers really love having simple and easy access to all their favorite magazines in one single place.
But because this app is paid for on a monthly basis rather than on a yearly basis like most paper magazine subscriptions, customers will really want to take advantage of their 30 day free trial to make sure that this service meets their needs.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many different services that lets customers get access to different magazines through mobile devices, but it seems clear that Texture offers access to the greatest number of magazines available at this time, so customers will need to decide if they only want access to a few publications or if they want the large selection that this company offers.
