Samsung has developed a new magazine app service called Papergarden and only publishers that have built their digital magazines using Adobe’s DPS, such as Condé Nast, Hearst and National Geographic, will be viewable in the app, reports Folio.
The service, integrated with Adobe’s native Android Viewer, will be available in the Samsung Galaxy Tab S.
Papergarden, essentially a mini-Newsstand, comes pre-installed on the tablet. The service allows a unique sampling function for potential subscribers, enabling them to browse articles before purchasing a title.
Purchase options are also automatically shown to the viewer, including whether that person is a current subscriber. And consumers can purchase issues or subscriptions without having to first download the magazine app.
