With an aim to make itself visible in almost all the sectors, Cupertino tech major Apple has acquired the digital magazine service Texture.
For those who don’t know, Texture, previously owned by Next Issue Media LCC provides users with unlimited access to over 200 magazines based on a monthly subscription fee.
Eddy Cue, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services said, “We’re excited Texture will join Apple, along with an impressive catalog of magazines from many of the world’s leading publishers. We are committed to quality journalism from trusted sources and allowing magazines to keep producing beautifully designed and engaging stories for users.”
However, there is no word on the signing amount of the deal and what Apple plans to do with the service once it is fully acquired.
John Loughlin, CEO of Next Issue Media / Texture stated, “I’m thrilled that Next Issue Media, and its award-winning Texture app, are being acquired by Apple. The Texture team and its current owners, Condé Nast, Hearst, Meredith, Rogers Media and KKR, could not be more pleased or excited with this development. We could not imagine a better home or future for the service.”
Additionally, launched back in 2010, Texture is available for both Android and iOS users.
