As the popularity of the iPad continues to grow, more publishers are looking to the new medium to host their popular subscriptions. Apple has opened the door to free magazine downloads and with it comes one of the most popular entertainment and celebrity gossip magazines of all time, People Magazine. The magazine has been rethought for the digital era bringing much more than the written word to subscribers.

Now, users can gorge themselves on the latest in entertainment news by thumbing through the media-rich version of the magazine. Once downloaded, the free People Magazine app offers instant purchase of the latest issues right in the app. Though it oddly took well over 10 minutes to download, the magazine was well worth the wait. It is set up to reach the content you want quickly.

Most articles also have a supporting video or trailer which was great for linking movies to their actors. One nice feature which will become more common in other apps is that previous subscribers to the magazine get the iPad versions for free. Overall, if you like People magazine, a subscription is the way to go. The app is designed well and offers a great way to read the latest on celebrity news. Check it out.
