iCreate iPad App

16) iCreate Magazine ($1.99): Mac users, enjoy this creative Apple magazine on your iPad. Single issues sell for $4.99 each, with six-month subscriptions available for $26.99.

17) MacUser Magazine ($.99): America's favorite Apple magazine is a natural fit for the iPad. The $.99 price includes the full current issue. After that, issues are $2.99 each or $29.99 for a six-month subscription (which, oddly, is not a savings over the single-issue price).

18)Zinio Newsstand and Reader (Free): A highly popular app because it aggregates content from many magazines – 2,000 titles by one count – and allows you to purchase what you want. Think of it as a “newsstand on your iPad.”

19) Newsweek (Free): Downloading the free Newsweek app gets you a special digital edition called "Politics in the Age of Obama." If you want more, weekly issues go for $2.99 each.

20)Outside Magazine ($2.99): Get the best of the outdoor lifestyle magazine with this visually-impressive app. Individual issues also for $2.99 each.

21)Paris Match (Free): This app is meant as an introduction to the kinds of news and cultural content you can expect with Paris Match. Individual issues of the Gallic staple go for $1.99 each.

22) Popular Science+ ($4.99): Want to know what's new and what's next in the world of technology? This app gets you the current issue, with other issues selling for $2.99 or $4.99 each.

23) Time Magazine (Free): Although the leading newsweekly's app is free, later issues will cost you $4.99 each. That's pretty aggressive pricing, especially when you consider that Newsweek issues go for $2 less.

24) Vanity Fair Magazine ($4.99): As of this writing, purchasing this app gets you the full July issue, as well as photo outtakes and video. Later issues sell for $3.99.

25) Wired Magazine ($4.99): Purchasing this app not only gets you the current issue, but several iPad extras including videos, music, and slideshows. The store doesn't list a price for later issues.
