The Fortune magazine app is an example of a subscription-based app that allows you to download and read the current issue of Fortune magazine, or access past issues, and see each page exactly as it appeared in print. However, the content appears on your iPad's screen and is accessible when you have time to read it.
Like all newspapers and magazines available via subscription, Fortune magazine has a custom-designed app that offers interactive elements that allow you to delve deeper than what's within the pages of the magazine. Features such as instant stock quotes, bonus stories not found in the print edition, streaming video segments, and interactive charts are all offered as part of the iPad app.
When you download the free Fortune magazine app, it includes one free issue of the magazine. Beyond that, you can download additional issues for $4.99 each from within the app, and have them available on your tablet's screen in seconds.
