The enthusiasm around the iPad within media circles is unique. The publishing industry is often criticized for failing to adapt to new and disruptive technologies, but everyone seems to be falling over one another to get their publication into the “app store.” While pundits proclaim that the Web is dead and that this is the era of apps, little is known about how to successfully develop an iPad business.

Magazines and newspapers cannot ignore this platform, but it is still new – and intimidating – territory. Is the cost of producing an iPad offering worth the risk? Are single issue purchases a viable strategy? Should your app be free? What about in-app purchases for issue sales? These are legitimate concerns that publishers face, and this Publisher's Playbook offers information and insight so that publishers can make informed decisions regarding how the iPad makes sense for their brand.
