Elle and Popular Science Apps Already Update With In-App Subscriptions

Well, that didn’t take long: mere hours after Apple officially dropped their new App Store subscriptions service, the first magazine apps using the new billing system are hitting the App Store, courtesy of Popular Science and Elle Magazine.

Both work roughly the same as The Daily: you are given the option between weekly, monthly and yearly subscriptions and asked if the publisher may access personal information like your e-mail address and zip code.

Pretty straight forward, and now that the functionality’s here, not that earth-shaking… but given how quick out of the gate some of these magazines have been, it really seems like the publishing industry as a whole has been chomping at the bit for Apple to start offering this service.
