Magzter is launching these titles on Apple's Newsstand as well through Magzter and they are expected to be released by the first week of October 2012.
Publishers looking to increase revenue, reach and branding can turn to Magzter for an effective digital distribution channel, getting their publications in front of potential buyers all over the world without the hassle of printing and physical distribution. One of the most attractive features is the low time-to-market capability and the ability to gain global distribution at almost zero additional cost. The Magzter platform also provides publishers with sales reports so they can track their progress and success and also add on to their circulation numbers in order to earn more from advertisers.
Magzter allows publishers to publish their magazines on all Apple devices via the Apple App Store and all Android 1.5 and above devices in addition to allowing readers to buy, subscribe and read their favorite magazines from their Laptops and Desktops via any Internet browser for those who don't own these devices and smartphones.

"I was really impressed when I met Mrs. Rarin Utakapan Punjarungroj, Managing Director of Amarin Publishing who spearheaded this deal. She was very proactive and quick to understand on the value proposition of publishing her magazines digitally through Magzter. I am sure Amarin and other Thai publishers can leverage our existing 3.5 million user base and reach global audiences as well through Magzter increasing their digital revenue" said Girish Ramdas, Co-founder and CEO, Magzter.
