Apple Shutting Down Texture Digital Magazine App May 28th 2019
Apple just launched its latest offering, Apple News+ and that means there’s no room (as the company sees it) for two like services.
Although, there’s a bit of silver lining to the cloud. Texture users receive a month-long free News+ trial. (It’s the same offer everyone else gets; so it’s not really much of a condolence.)
To make matters worse, to take advantage of the free Apple News+ trial, Texture subscribers will have to do more than simply download an app. Since there’s no support for Android or Windows, it’s necessary to buy an iOS mobile device or purchase a Mac.
Of course, the probably — even possibility — of a Texture subscriber laying out hundreds to thousands of dollars simply to get a free month of content, is practically nonexistence.
Instead, users will most likely transition to another app, rather than incur unnecessary expense.
