When Apple started Newsstand, I thought it was a way to reach readers with unique content, pay writers well for their content, and create a great experience on an iOS app. I guess I should have realized when Apple killed Newsstand that it was over, but I pressed on. That was a mistake on my part.
Apple’s heart wasn’t in it and I wish they’d done more to promote Newsstand, but they could have handled the transition much more gracefully.
Now I’m starting to wonder if Apple News has a future. It’s biggest problem is that if I share an article on social media, only people that have the app can read the article. Not a good start.
