Newsstand, which was launched last month ahead of Apple's iOS 5 update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, is a store like iTunes and iBooks that allows you to buy and store media in one library -- in this case, magazines and other, less important, things. You can buy individual issues, but if you subscribe to Guitar World, your Newsstand library is automatically updated every time a new issue comes out.
Guitar World and several other Future US titles -- including Revolver, Guitar Aficionado and Legends -- are among the titles available at the store.
A one-year subscription to Guitar World at the Apple Newsstand costs $14.99. Individual Issues are also available for purchase.
"Getting Guitar World, Guitar Aficionado and Revolver on your iPad? How completely awesome is that?" said Brad Tolinski, editor-in-chief of Guitar World. "We are totally excited about being part of Apple's incredible Newsstand. This is just the beginning of a new revolution in publishing, and we can't wait to see where it will take us from here."
