Next Issue, the magazine newsstand app sponsored by Condé Nast, Hearst, Meredith, News Corp. and Time Inc., recently announced the addition of eight new titles to its catalog—bringing the total number of offerings to 80. Next Issue, which in the past was the target of criticism for its slow pace of expansion and initial roll-out on a very limited number of devices, has stepped it up as of late, finally coming to the iPad in July (though having problems on Android) and publicizing its $9.99 all-you-can-eat access plan via high-profile TV and Web ads, one of which ran this week during the Colbert Report on Comedy Central.

New titles available from the "Netflix of magazines" include ESPN The Magazine, Fast Company and Travel+Leisure. Read the entire press release below.

New York, NY – November 29, 2012 – Next Issue Media, the first and only company to provide unlimited access to premium digital magazine content in the US, today announces the addition of eight new titles to its iPad catalog. These new magazines increase the total number of top titles to 80 across a spectrum of interests, maintaining the company's commitment to offering the world's most popular brands in a high-value consumer subscription model.

The new titles added to the Next Issue catalog include: ESPN The Magazine, Fast Company, Food & Wine, Inc., Men's Fitness, Men's Journal, New York Magazine and Travel + Leisure. While the Next Issue catalog continues to grow with the addition of these eight new magazines, pricing of the unlimited access plans remains the same.

The Unlimited Basic plan provides access to all monthly and bi-weekly titles, 73 in total, and continues to be offered for just $9.99 per month. The Unlimited Premium plan offers access to all 80 titles, which includes the weekly titles, for the same low price of $14.99 per month. Both plans include access to back issues.

"These new titles augment key areas of our catalog, including men's interest and business, and enhance the value to unlimited customers by giving them an even broader selection of world class, category leading magazines for a single low price" said Morgan Guenther, CEO of Next Issue Media.
