With the Newsstand framework Apple has provided a way for developers to place magazine apps within the special Newsstand folder using the Newsstand Kit.

When asked about the Newsstand I came across an excellent step-by-step guide demonstrating how to set up an application to use newsstand, handling magazine downloading, downloading, and notification of new issues, setting up subscriptions, and more.

You don’t have to set up a Newsstand app to use everything covered within the tutorial, but if you are looking for a guide on creating a subscription magazine this is a great starting point.

The tutorial is from Viggiosoft and can be found in 2 parts: Pt. 1, Pt. 2.

If you want further details on creating a magazine you also might want to check out this article listing open source libraries for creating a magazine app quickly.

Site Updates:

This tutorial was added to the iOS 5 tutorial page, and I’ve also added a section and new tutorials specifically for Automatic Reference Counting  (ARC).
