∞ iOS 5 Newsstand's impact is significant

Jeff Sonderman for Poynter:

Since Apple launched it last week in the latest version of its iOS operating system, its impact has been immediate and significant. Many Newsstand apps now rank among the top free apps overall, and magazine and newspaper apps are benefiting from a surge of downloads and subscribers.

And some people said the App Store wouldn’t impact magazine and newspaper subscriptions at all.
