Friday Finds.... Next Issue

OH have I found an amazing app for you!

A couple of years ago I wanted to cut down on my paper waste. So that meant that I had to eliminate the 14 or so monthly magazines I was getting. So slowly I just stopped subscribing to them.
But in a way I missed getting ideas and seeing what was out in the market place via my magazine.  So every once and and while I would pick up a Sunset or a Real Simple and bring it home with me.  But at $4.99 - $6.99 a pop it was not worth it.  Recently my wonderful grandma upgraded her iPad to a mini and kindly gifted her 2 gen to me!!  

I had heard about this app via a promotional email I received awhile back but ignored it since I didn't have an iPad at the time.  But the minute I had this thing up and running I was downloading my free 30 day trail!  Just in time to test it out on our long snow weekend, I was quickly hooked!!  

The app does have a monthly fee of $9.99 a month... I think worth every penny!
There are over 80 magazines to choose from!  I will totally never read all of them, but even if I read 10 with a cover price of $4.99 that would be almost $50 a month!

And here is another think I love about Next Issue....

When I find something that I would like to remember or refer back to, I simply just take a screen shot of the page {for iPad users just press your home and lock button at the same time}.  Then I file the page away into a notebook on Evernote {another app I will talk more about later!!!}. Some of the pages are interactive and you tap on an item and it will take you directly to the website!

I live in very committed Mac home, but they do also have the app for Android and windows.

So go download your free 30 day trail!
Happy weekend reading!

Happy Anniversary
to my amazing husband of 8 years!

I have been so blessed to have you in my life!
You are the only man for me, and every day I fall more in love with you!
Thank you for choosing me!
